    I suppose it's because I am not a person who writes for personal satisfaction or self-reflection, or if so it is kept privately.

    When you have "You should too" in the title the strong implication is that this is information for others, not just reflections on your own experience.

    There are so many people, events, conversations, and other such interactions I have had via Facebook that I would not have had otherwise that I feel is being entirely ignored here.

    What about the events where I meet people I never would have otherwise and would never have been invited to without Facebook. What about the conversations with younger family members who don't use email? What about socio-political or philosophical discussions with people I met while traveling who I could never aggregate elsewhere?

    What about the increased value I get in other applications by utilizing my existing network on Facebook?

    I get value from exposing my life in this way. I do not live in constant fear of the potential ways my mostly boring information can be misused (Which right now is just oh no more relevant ads). I can easily post my owned content to Facebook as a means to access it, not the sole place it exists.

    The addictive nature and wasting too much time on Facebook is risky, but that is a matter of self control as is the consumption of anything pleasant.

    I really think the generations to follow us are going to look back on our fretting now and be utterly bewildered over what we cared about and what we didn't care about (except climate change, that makes sense).

    I don't think this is fair. I read a lot of long books and long-form writing, I still didn't want to find what was new in this essay about quitting Facebook.

    I think we have just come across so many articles about quitting Facebook that it is difficult to know why I should invest my reading time in this one.

    Thanks! That's a cool idea, is that by any chance the way places like Australia run their elections or am I confusing concepts?

    Continuing to design new features and clean up CSS for Tally App a web app that rates your political representatives by non-partisan metrics. Super open to any feedback as we add features and data sources.

    Light weight text, especially against a color background can be hard to read.

    The illustrations should all be SVG instead of PNG.

    I didn't realize the blinking illustration on the main page changes until I reloaded the page by accident, so it wasn't clear what the illustration was representing.

    This feels like you have the ideas of an aesthetic and a direction to go in, but it needs a few rounds of iterating and refining to make a more cohesive page.

    Can someone explain to me why I haven't switched to Figma yet?

    Do they have better text style management than Sketch?
