I turned off ALL notifications on all sm and it made massive difference, I am logged into like 5 accounts sometimes at the same time so that was insane amount of notifications.
I use it for work so can't just delete and tbh wouldn't want to. I am, however, quite strict when it comes to my personal ones, on my privacy settings, who gets invited/accepted and I am quite immune to adverts. I also don't follow any influencers or politics. It's all ducks and plants lol.
Basically a horrible customer for them on the personal accounts😂

Yeah yeah exactly, I'm not at all surprised. Just made me want to delete all the more

I didn't mena you personally with the surprise, just general @owlpicture
I took charge of it as much as I can because I made it into nice happy place with artists, local businesses, plants, ducks and things like that.
They already had the data, so meh. Plus I have Alexa🙈 And google. I am sure all of them knowore about me than I do.
Now they also know I am fond of pictures of dogs catching treats. 🙈

Sounds very interesting
It's called "The Social Dilemma"
It has been around a while, and yes "none of this is new" exactly, but it's the best explanation I have seen about why it matters and explains some of the complex technical stuff very well. It's well worth a watch as a family tbh.
