Not only is this method going to show you important updates from people and pages you don’t care for much, but you’ll miss less popular updates from people and pages you do care about.

You Are The Product, Not The Client: The Personal Data Economy Explained

As Andrew Lewis once said “If you’re not paying for something, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold”. Think about the implications of that quote for a moment – how many free services do we use online every day? When we use Facebook, make a search on Google, or check our Gmail, we like to think that we’re the customer.

At least not until the next morning anyway.
