How much is social media worth? Estimating the value of Facebook by paying users to stop using it

Court Case doc of Fashion ID GmbH & Co. KG v. Verbraucherzentrale NRW e.V.
joined parties: Facebook Ireland Limited, Landesbeauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit Nordrhein-Westfalen

Nice quote: 
89.      A long time ago (the fans of a certain sci-fi franchise might wish to add ‘in a galaxy far, far away’), it was cool to be on a social network. Then gradually, it started to be cool not to be on a social network. Nowadays, it appears to be a crime to be on one (and for which novel forms of vicarious liability have to be put in place).
