Well, I didn't actually tell anyone anything when I ghosted Facebook a year ago, abandoning all my "friends" and feeling like I'd done something good for my mental health. Aaron Balick, psychoanalyst and author of The Psychodynamics of Social Networking doesn't think so.
Kogan said he has been scapegoated by both Cambridge and Facebook. "Social media just appeals to those psychological basic drives, to express ourselves and to relate to other people".

We look forward to Facebook instituting some of the things that Zuckerberg promised today.
