The various lock downs, etc may have triggered many to return to the "platform"... and of course big tech, (not to mention big pharma) have made billions (trillions?)... it is absolutely insidious by design.

You're not alone - I expect many fell back to old habits. I installed Windows 10...

I have never been "on it", so I can't really relate to it. I have only seen the continuously swiping zombies on the train, looking at photos and animated memes and then quickly tapping out some response or "liking" someone's new hair do or whatever...

For me it's all very banal and superficial - but to be clear, and for full disclosure: I'm a very anti-social person. Family excepted (well some family...), I've never liked other people, if I have to deal with them, then I prefer to deal with one person at a time, large groups annoy me - mainly because people stop behaving as individuals and I have to listen to trivial conversations and chit chat on subjects which I have zero interest in, but am expected to know all about. So this likely makes me "social network incompatible" (immune?).
