There’s been another recent round of people I know leaving Facebook — for good reasons! — so I thought it was worth a few words about why I’m not.

Yesterday, I posted a picture of and a few words about my new cat to Facebook. And to MeWe. And to Instagram. And to Micro.blog.

Today, I looked at the numbers and found them interesting, to me at least. So, I figured I’d share:

Facebook: 91 reactions, 28 comments 
MeWe: 1 reaction, 0 comments 
Instagram: 36 reactions, 1 comment
Micro.blog: 0 reactions, 3 comments

In summary: Facebook had more than twice the responses as all the others combined.

There are a lot of reasons why people write and post. Me? I write to be read. So long as Facebook’s got the eyeballs, I’ll be posting there.
