1 - NEW CONTENT
I see NEW content all the time! For months now, my Facebook newsfeed has been full of posts from 2-3 days ago. And I see the same posts from the same people over and over. On Steemit, content is displayed chronologoically and there's always people adding new content, so it's more fun to explore!
2 - STEEM CRYPTO
The Steem crypto currency that is part of this platform gives a real incentive to be on here, to create good content, and to contribute meaningful comments. Why spend time posting where you will not earn anything, when you can spend time posting where you will earn something?
3 - NO TROLLS!
The way Steemit works, if people flag your posts or comments, your posts and comments get hidden and your posts and comments also get demonetized. This means trolls are few and far between. People don't just argue for the sake of it. Comments sections are for the most part much more civilized on Steemit!
4 - YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU SEE
On Facebook, you can like pages, add friends and follow people till the cows come home, but, you'll almost never see any of their content. Facebook algorithms decide what they think you want to see. Obviously, Facebook truly sucks at this. On Steemit, you can search by tags to find content you're actually interested in seeing, and chose to follow those people. Once you do follow someone, all their posts will be in your feed, chronologically.
5- NO ADS
On Steemit, there's no obnoxious ads everywhere. Facebook has gone from being a social media platform, to nothing more than a glorified ad platform. They use all kinds of surveillance and cookies to track everything you do online, and even listen to you and track your eyes, then they use that info to target ads for you. Personally I consider that an invasion of privacy.
