I've not been a fan of Facebook for years, and this kind of encapsulates most of my reasons why. I felt that at the core the company sacrificed ethics to grow their platform, and now they're seeing the negative effect.

    After reading this article, I started resenting Facebook for making money off of my boredom- the reason I usually log in. I suppose they have a right to make money off boredom, like anyone in the entertainment industry, but I've recently been more aware of who gets my attention and how much of it. Who do I want to profit from my attention?

      I think we're all getting a little smarter as more articles like this for Facebook (and Google, too) are coming. When you're silently watching what I do all the time and making money from it (or trying to trick me into coming back to your site), that makes me angry.

    I teach teenagers, few have FB and none use it. They only use the internet through apps, rarely use computers and obsess over instagram. Facebook is their parents social network and is going to die a slow death.
