Just witnessed a whole conversation on a non-nerdy chat group about the evils of Facebook and big tech in connecting with people, finding local events and so on. No one has the perfect answer yet, but it's so encouraging to see that non-techy people are looking for better answers and a bunch of them already refuse to use FB.

@cameron when I joined Facebook in 2007, I really liked it. I also really liked that they would put notices up that made me feel their decisions were democratic. That has changed. There are too many ads on the site, too many reposts from big news organizations, too many viral posts, not enough original content, not enough social connectivity, and way too many algorithms altering the newsfeed. And the platform in general is a political sinkhole, filled with negativity.
