Facebook down and disability 

I saw a post from someone about Facebook being down being bad for folks trying to socialize with other disabled/marginalized people.

And here's the thing.

That can be true, but it's because Facebook is essentially being an abusive bully about it.

It essentially drags you in and then threatens you with losing all your social connections if you choose to leave.

That's... evil and abusive.

Yeah, they've made it easy to connect. But they do so abusively.
