While I did get a lot of connection and activity on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google Plus while I was off Facebook, there is still no substitute. Even as bad as it is, Facebook (with AdBlock on) is pretty good.
65 days left of my quitting Facebook for 99 days quest. Here are the top 10 things I miss in random order.
So, here we go. Let's just LET FACEBOOK DIE. Let's kill it. Let's pile on and join the 99 Days of Freedom. Join the other 30,000+ people who are leaving Facebook behind.
There's too much money and momentum for social media or social sharing to go away. But Zuck's days are limited. Just as Microsoft has fallen from the top of the OS and App pile, so will Facebook fall from the top of the Social Network heap. But the company/platform to take it's place has probably not been launched yet.
As an email and contact platform Facebook is just "one more" device that I needed to check. Now, I've deleted the Facebook app from my phone, and that right there is about 50% of my distracted phone time, that I now have to do something else with.
If there were somewhere else to go, I am pretty sure we would migrate. But why would people move. Google Plus is a pretty good alternative, but it's not good enough. Or people don't trust Google. Or there's just not enough reason to move.
Facebook should be so much better. We can do a bit. We can ask and complain and keep using Facebook until something better comes along. And just like Windows, nothing lasts forever. Facebook's dominance will begin eroding, we just need the place to jump.
What does it take to bring the security and trust to a community that can foster this sharing at a high-level?
With billions of users, even a 10% Facebook Pro adoption rate could generate significant revenue. And for those who didn't want to pay, Facebook Free would still be supported via advertising and post boosting.
