Yup. I agree. It's like hoovering. Or ironing. In fact hoovering has become more interesting than Facebook. At least the hoover won't try and force it's opinion down your throat. Unless you have a particularly dogmatic hoover....
I kept mine around 150, but even then there was always a lot of crap in the news feed. No matter how many apps or whatever that I blocked, I could never get rid of it all (stupid "funny" pictures, scams, chain-posts, etc).
I hear you. My wife and I eventually got off for exactly that reason. It had become an obligation and it wasn't fun anymore. That and we got tired of the algorithm manipulating what we saw on our feeds.
I feel like I've been missing things because I can't access Facebook, but I don't want to see all those stupid pictures and scams and crap that everyone shares. No matter how much of that stuff I blocked, there's always new stuff. I'd like a social network that's as simple as Sublevel, but that has the ability to have "private" conversations and share news with only those who've been allowed (like "friends" in Facebook).
Yeah, I kind of wish that bit of "privacy" here, if only given the chance. But I sure like the way Sublevel is now. And yes, lots of non-sense appearing on facebook making it less likely to log in there daily. Only if not for group works, meh.
Facebook has such a strong network effect it's hard to avoid it's existence. I'm not sure if that's because it's so big or because it's Facebook. I still enjoy coming to Sublevel though so at least there's that
