It’s no secret that people are becoming increasingly disillusioned with Facebook. It’s clunky and obsolete. The advertising is creepily targeted. The news it promotes is of questionable legitimacy. It keeps trying to reconnect you with people you’d rather forget exist. The Cambridge Analytica crisis converted many holdouts, triggering a mass exodus from the platform.
But, Facebook has sunk its claws in deep and has no intention of letting its users go without a fight. Disillusioned users who decide they want to jump ship may be disturbed to find it’s not as easy as they’d like.
