A Social Dilemma: Facebook Doesn't Want You to Leave
It's funny. Well, maybe funny's not the right word. A few weeks ago I chose to take a break from Facebook, and after a couple of weeks, I started receiving notifications from Facebook about friends who'd updated their profile, shared a photo, posted an update, shared a link, and so on. Facebook and other social media sites really don't want us not to log on (how's that for a double negative?). And they'll do everything they can to get you log back on. This is detailed in depressing detail in the documentary, The Social Dilemma, which will make you think twice about logging on, or at least logging on as much as you have. It's worth a watch.
