The result? Facebook (and Twitter, to a much lesser extent) became more of a therapy feed than an informational or even newsworthy feed. It was a minefield of hot takes, but not necessarily useful or informative ones. Because, frankly, not everyone is intelligent, witty, or even well informed. Ironically enough, I couldn’t locate any evidence of fake news because individuals were too busy complaining, exaggerating, hyperbolizing and appealing to God over pedantry. If the fake news sites were there, I didn’t even get past the statuses to click on them.
Social media just is not interesting me anymore

Again, agreed. I started unfollowing loads of people, deleted Twitter off of my phone again, and I spend way less time on news sites right now. That being said, this change has personally been very healthy for me.
