It’s been a few years since I quit Facebook. I wasn’t alone. Many people left the site around the same time, and many more have left since. Quitting Facebook is cool now, which is a good thing.
While many people have quit or cut back their social media use in order to improve their mental health, privacy was my primary reason. I feel that if the implicit bargain people make when they use Facebook as well as many other “free” services, was made explicit, folks would reject it.
