Facebook as the needy ex

This actually echoes much of how I felt, when I stopped logging into Facebook.

It was easily the longest amount of time I had logged out of Facebook since I joined in 2006, and the team in Menlo Park did not let me forget it. The network sent me a series of bewildering emails—17 messages in nine days—to tell me exactly what I was missing. In the process, Facebook made a better argument for its own irrelevance than I ever could.

I wrote about it here, back then.

I have found articles that was posted exclusively on Facebook, requiring a login. I treat that the same way as I treat paywalls and I have yet to find anything worth the cost of returning.
