I left Facebook a couple of years ago. I call it “Fecesbook”. Other than reconnecting with an old friend or two, the conversation was just superficial and useless pablum. Anytime I tried to inject an interesting article or expand on an idea, the conversation was misconstrued, trolled or simply ended. A huge waste of time and emotional investment. A big collection of mean-spirited echo chambers.
Medium seems quite civil and engaging, even though I may decide to crawl back in my shop and leave it if I can break my ego’s addiction to writing.
