People complain about facebook privacy, tracking, censoring, and they keep using facebook.  People complain about facebook intrusive "covid 19 information" and they keep using facebook.   People complain about all sorts of stuff they say facebook did related to the November 2020 election, say facebook is evil, censoring, etc, and I see those same people continue to use facebook.   An analogy is people say "I will never shop at that store again" but they never stop shopping there.
This  sounds to me a lot like virtue signalling, you know. Social justice is very popular nowadazys, for whatever it's  worth.

I installed the firefox plugin "privacy badger" and it is astonishing how invasive facebook is on the internet.
Kinda puts their big fight with Apple over privacy into perspective. Collecting user data across the entire internet should be beyond the scope of any company.
