Right. Facebook is a hero which lets me do all sorts of things I couldn't do with a webserver or any of the thousands of forums that existed before they started, quite a few of which still exist today. It's all down to them that we have an open internet, even though they keep buying up parts of the internet and making it more centralized. This is a forum of technical people. We know what's possible without Facebook there. Talking is still possible. We also know what's related to Facebook and what isn't. National spying, for example, is perfectly possible with Facebook there and in fact easier with all their data in one convenient place. You are wrong.
