With my little Miss now producing her own online content over at YouTube, this post by Timethief was rather timely and gave me cause to reconsider my current usage levels at Facebook.
The post is called “Facebook, freebooting and content theft” and if you are a regular Facebook user, then I think it would be a good idea to read the article and watch the associated video.
Interestingly, when I decided to pare back my Facebook account after watching the video I noticed just how many people or pages I had ‘liked’ yet heard nothing from. When I unfollowed two thirds of my list I started to see some of my original and more interesting connections. It also showed me just how lopsided my feed had become under the curatorship of this company.
And now I will continue to work my way towards minimising my use of the platform.
