# Liked: Tyranny of the Network Effect | James Shelley...

”The network effect is like a kind of tyranny all to its own. It makes platforms like Facebook seem like nonnegotiable requirements for living and communicating in the modern world.”

If it wasn’t for family I would have deleted my Facebook account years ago. I wish I could but sometimes it’s the only way to do certain things.

Facebook is like a massive convenience store that does everything worse than artisans but all under the same roof so we opt for ease over excellence until the artisans are driven from the market.

We bemoan the lack of choice but it is our own fault and the cost of re-entry is prohibitive.
