Do you want to talk to others or just yourself?

This is just a quick thought stimulated by Facebook’s move to force people to use its Messenger app rather than messaging people through the general Facebook app.

I’ve seen a number of people on social media platforms grumbling about this, and suggesting it will cause them to leave Facebook. Over the years I have had loads of people telling me they want to use a particular platform because of its design. My reply to this is always that a platform can have all the perfect design features you could wish for, but, if the people you want to contact are not using it, you will be talking to yourself, not to anyone else.
