the internet and democracy
OCTOBER 17, 2019
I got off Facebook about 10 years ago. I know that this has had no impact on the company or its business model. When I saw in 2007 that Facebook was selling user information , I knew I could not stay on the platform much longer. But the lure of network effects, where it takes almost no effort to connect with other people, is too powerful for most of us. Facebook is convenient. For most businesses it is suicide not to be on Facebook.
