This article about Facebook was widely spread yesterday/today (I got it via Daring Fireball). It’s THE reason to quit anything Facebook does. What does it take for people to realize that this company is helping to destroy the way we live? Why does nobody care? Is it really so hard for people to find another way to organize as a community these days? I just don’t understand anyone – and I know a lot of them – who is still unwilling to give up on Facebook or WhatsApp, let alone Instagram. They might understand it, but they don’t see a problem for themselves. It’s not just about themselves though. This company (and others as well) is destroying our democracy. This article is just yet another proof for that. People are not willing to take even the smallest hit to their convenience to help make a point for the bigger picture. It’s really sad.
