if you're like me and you need @Facebook for work or specific communications, but you hate the platform, its shitty founder , and everything it stands for, try deleting the app from your phone and making a personal commitment to NEVER post content there. #DeleteFacebook
@facebook I promise you, when you no longer have Facebook in your pocket and need to log in via a browser on your computer and you're not making posts people engage with, you'll quickly see what a useless platform it is and you'll completely lose the urge to check it all. #DeleteFacebook
@facebook There was a time when doing progressive political outreach for @facebook (as I did at Medium) would have been a dream gig for me. Now the thought of giving such a hateful, dangerous platform any free content at all makes me want to vomit. #DeleteFacebook
@facebook Yes, I still use Instagram and WhatsApp, and yes I feel shitty about it because I think Mark Zuckerberg is an amoral piece of shit, but at least Instagram hasn't specifically poisoned our democracy like Facebook has. #DeleteFacebook
@facebook What are you missing on Facebook?

Racism, political propaganda and stupid posts from the dumb dumbs from your hometown who you probably didnt ever need to reconnect with anyway. Let that shit go! #DeleteFacebook
@facebook Did you know that @propublica found that @Facebook lets landlords advertise to potential tenants who are "whites only" ? gross right? #deletefacebook

@facebook @propublica .@facebook's stranglehold on journalism was built on outright fraud and they knowingly lied about video being a moneymaker and teams let go of writers bc of it.

If you like sites like @cracked, Facebook is the reason why your fav writers were let go: hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/facebo…
@facebook @propublica @cracked .@facebook ADMITTED it was a tool in spreading hate speech that led to genocide in Myanmar and that they didn't really do much to stop it: nytimes.com/2018/11/06/tec…
@facebook @propublica @cracked As if you needed more reasons to #DeleteFacebook.

Mark S Luckie is one of the most respected names in tech (I am purposely not tagging him here as to not flood his mentions.) Here's how he described his time working at @Facebook : facebook.com/notes/mark-s-l…
@facebook @propublica @cracked So #DeleteFacebook if you can't, but if you can't or aren't ready to, you can STILL limit how you use it. Think of it as a tool, not something to spend hours on because you're bored. Not only is it better for your mental health but it'll lessen the stranglehold on our democracy.
