Jimmy Fallon Pokes Fun At People Quitting Facebook In His Thank You Notes Segment

The irony in his delivery is palpable.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with The Tonight Show, there’s a segment where Jimmy Fallon pens thank you notes to friends, foes, and everything (and everyone) in between. On Friday’s episode, the host joined a trending conversation as he thanked those who quit Facebook.

“Thank you, people who quit Facebook, for telling me all the reasons you’re leaving Facebook in a long post on Facebook,” the host joked.

Sarcasm evident, he points out the irony around a person leaving Facebook only to succumb to its gravitational pull in a typical “goodbye FB” post. The joke comes at a time when Facebook — and in fact, much of the tech world — is under intense scrutiny, from social media’s role in our democracy to how it has warped our interactions on and offline.
