In reality, I wasn't a fan of Facebook as soon as it was opened up to the world. When I first joined, it was only accessible to college and high school students. Then everyone from Earth got an account and it all went downhill, mostly because that "everyone" included billion-dollar companies who flexed their influence around the site and turned it into a giant commercial machine for their mediocre products as if they weren't being shoved in my face enough on the telly.
Obvious and current issues aside, social media is a waste of time. Not only will the average user spend hours a day liking posts by a person who is pretending to be their cat, but it creates unnecessary difficulty for small businesses, artists and non-profits alike. Facebook in particular is notorious for hiding posts you've created as a Page from your followers unless you cough up more money. This means that if you have 20,000 followers, only a fraction of them will see your content unless you pay to "boost posts." You earned that following yourself, and then you're not even able to interact with it because there's money to be made!
While in possession of my own Facebook Page, I found I'd have to spend at least three hours a day just to get a single post visible to more than a few people without spending $50 per post for my followers to see it. That's three hours less I had to work in the studio and to create new pieces because of these algorithms. A company like Coca-Cola can easily dedicate enough money a day to boosting posts and managing an account, while a single artist or small business simply cannot. And because you have less money to give to Facebook, Facebook decides you're worth less than the bigger brands we all already know, and your page becomes nearly impossible to access. That's fair.
Twitter was even worse. I mostly made an account as a joke to riff on paranormal shows, but the bots, scams, toxic politics, etc. was just too much to stomach. And while it was fun being trolled by paranormal investigator John E.L. Tenney during a Finding Bigfoot riff (because he was so busy looking for ghosts), the majority of my followers would end up being bots/fake accounts, impersonators, music pages just looking for you to follow them back before unfollowing you, and good ol' fashioned porno.
Having read this article on the follies of social media for artists and non-profits, and feeling that I was subconsciously nodding in agreement throughout the entire thing, I decided to delete all of my social sites. Right now, my Facebook Page, Twitter and Instagram (which I never used and barely remember creating) have all been deleted and I have no intentions on making new ones. I still have a personal Facebook account that will be deleted as soon as I get all of my friends' emails and Skype names to stay in touch with them like we did in pioneer days (the late '90s and early '00s).
I've already found that my output has increased without the distractions of social media, and it has given me more time to focus on curating my own site rather than sharing my material for someone else's gain and/or election meddling.
If you wish to delete your social media accounts, but are finding that the sites have made this task too difficult to keep you in their grasp, this article by Wired will help.
