I would love to leave FB. I would love to leave Twitter. I can't. Not if I want to (successfully) continue doing my job as a journalist/producer/independent person. If I want Flash Forward to succeed and find listeners, I need FB. If I want editors to remember who I am, I need Twitter. It shouldn't be the responsibility of independents to push publishing/media away from the hell that is Twitter/FB.
Yes this is very selfish! I'm prioritizing my professional success over a statement about the ethics of FB's business practices. I feel bad about that! But I also can't just throw out the main tools I use to make money without a backup plan?
@roseveleth I hate having to make those choices too.
