I enjoyed John Gruber’s analysis of Mark Zuckerberg’s hesitation to use the words user and customer in an interview with Vox.
Today I installed a Chrome extension that makes my Facebook News Feed invisible.
Facebook’s algorithm is very good at making the feed addictive, like a slot machine. This extension short-circuits it so I don’t get sucked down the rabbit hole in the middle of my work day.
I still have access to messages, notifications, and business stuff like pages, but the News Feed is out of sight and out of mind.
Is this really necessary, though?
