I haven't seen this (or even heard about it before now). My own social media use is minimal compared to most people I know. I already regularly urge everyone I know to delete their FB account.

that's cool! kudos! Keep at it :pray: . I've been more of a "I have all of those accounts but I only use 1 of them regularly" person. I never understood the appeal of Instagram, never got into twitter, or reddit, fb is still handy only cuz of fb group.

I did quite a bit of work with CHT and am really excited to hear of this film finally coming out! That said I don't have Netflix so haven't seen this yet. Have you, and if so what did you think of it?

That's really cool!! Yes I watched it the next day after hearing a trusty friend mention of it. I always had this feeling these companies were mining data in such a way, I think hearing the ex-executives talk about how terrible they felt, and have them explain it in a simplistic way, how they helped build these monster really made me committed to deleting accounts in the near term. I also been trying to build a start up based on how unhappy I've been about social media. Last time I applied, I was the top 10% of all applicants in batch of summer 2019. And I'll be applying again in 10 days :D . Timing feels ripe this time :fingerscrossed:
