Reply to "'Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now'"

I'm wondering what some of the arguments in the book are?

I'm in a weird boat, where, I never got popular social media like FaceBook growing up (despite the peer pressure to do so) but grew up with everyone around me having it. I always felt that, even a decade ago, it was odd to put up your communications with everyone to see it vs. individualized messaging or communities (like specialized forums). I felt that amongst different friend groups, family members or work colleagues - they knew me in different ways or were interested in different things and to have a crafted version that appealed to everyone didn't sound appealing. I also could see that people were on it all the time, and just didn't want to end up spending my time like that (as I think I have the personality to get easily drawn into it - even without people working on it to bring people in).
