    Facebook is one source of our traffic, so I am loathe to leave it, even though I have debated that exit with myself for years. This step on their part, though, is another in a long line of reason in my mind to take down our page and stop posting updates there.

    I’m probably over-reacting.

    Or not.

    I’m so done with Facebook. I deleted my account a couple of months ago, and I’m certainly not diving back into that swamp to make links to it prettier. I think I may scrub my site to make sure there are no links to it at all.

    This is just another reminder of why utilizing social media in your content is risky. These companies can up and change their API at any time, causing issues for a lot of folks.

    Beyond that, I would think Facebook has a few million other major issues to deal with right now.

    Yikes, quite the case for self-hosted / decentralized social media.

    I ditched social media a few years ago and have not missed it one bit. Email marketing was 10x more effective all along. Better to “miss out” than waste time. What’s hard is leaving because “everybody” is there. FOMO psychology makes a person keep doing what might not even be working.

    I think the next step for Facebook and its subsidiaries is to make it a paid service just like what The Big G did with their Maps API.
