Pro

Encourages candidates to exploit more traditional forms of media. 

Quite clearly opposite of what Mark Zuckerberg wants.

Politicians still free to post thirst traps on personal accounts.

Look on Hillary Clinton’s face if we started that now.


Con

All that personal data collected for nothing.

Got few extra Twitter followers from dunking on Biden campaign slogan.

Lack of politics is a political statement, man.

Having to watch these psychopaths try to do normal-person stuff on Instagram instead.
