Facebook is evil.
There. Said it.
Now here is an actual article written by a real journalist who eloquently expands on the ‘why’ and even provides some practical solutions. Although he’s writing to other journalists, there is nothing stopping any of you non-journalists from taking similar action.
I, however, would go one step further than Mr. Gillmor: I recommend that you delete any accounts associated with you and leave Facebook forever and spare whatever little sliver of life and privacy (and probably that of your innocent children) you have left that you haven’t already handed them on a silver platter.
But I understand your addiction and how hard it must be for you to face it.
But I will not be the one to enable your addiction. I love you too much.
