Eat24, a food delivery service wishes to have no part of Facebook after posting its breakup letter, saying the platform isn’t the smart, funny social network it fell in love with several years ago.
The food delivery company says Facebook is all about ads now, at first it was about telling jokes to friends but now it wants users to pay to talk to their friends.
“Now when we show you a photo of a taco wrapped with bacon, you’re all like “PROMOTE THIS POST! GET MORE FRIENDS!” instead of just liking us for who we are. That’s hella messed up.” Wrote Eat24 in its blog post.
You used to be cool facebook. Then you started telling us we had to pay you to let our friends even see us. Code ‘adiosfb’ is our goodbye.

Facebook has recently caught criticism for announcing changes to its platform that will decrease the reach for small businesses and require them to pay more to experience the same level of interaction and views that they were receiving organically before.
“So that’s it. We’re done. All you’re left with are some single-serve freezer meals. Us? We can eat a whole pizza by ourselves so we aren’t even worried about that. We’ll pack our things and be gone by 11:59pm on Monday night. Yes, you read that right. Eat24, the company that is always telling customers to Like our page, post on our wall, and ask us for coupons on Facebook… is deleting its Facebook. This is real.” Eat24 wrote.
