I'm not kidding when I say that we need a new Facebook. Right now the climate is perfect to transition everyone to a new platform with a much friendlier End User License Agreement and healthier side-effects. While famous people and companies are leaving or stopping their advertising with the social media giant, French president Emmanuel Macron warns that Google and Facebook are becoming too big to be governed. Also, this is appropriate.

Thus far, no major politicians have quit Facebook—and it seems highly unlikely that any will. While many political leaders have criticized the social network recently, and have called Zuckerberg to testify before Congress, political candidates and incumbents probably won’t delete their accounts because they find Facebook “virtually indispensable,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported. “On a basic, public level, Facebook serves as an online bulletin board for campaign events and a way for supporters—and potential supporters—to weigh in on issues. It helps campaigns recruit volunteers and get voters to the polls on election day.”.
