I haven’t had a change of heart. I still use Facebook, but I did stop posting essays there until they add linking. I think sometimes people simplify things into pro or con this or that, when it’s more complicated.

Facebook is a fact of life. My using it or not using it won’t change a thing.

Same with Medium, btw. As you can see my essays are posting here. That’s new, because they added an API, I can do that and still have them posted on my own site as well. And unlike Facebook they support linking.

What I would like to see is them all to support the web fully in every way possible. To the extent that they don’t I think they’re trying to take from the web without giving back, and no I don’t like that, but there are lots of things I don’t like without being “against” them.

BTW, is that your real name? If not, please decloak if you want to discuss this further.
