Trouble is that many organisations use FB as their primary communication channel. You want to know when the next meeting of your PTA / sports club / choir etc is being held, you must have an account at FB.
Exactly. Everyone is on Facebook because everyone else is. From what I've read/seen, the majority pof people have a negative opinion of the site and would like to leave, there's just no comparable alternative. People stick around to stay in the loop.
I prefer to be one of their less desirable users. Log in only to check messages, then log back out, never clicking any ads or spending one dime in their marketplace.
