Fed up with Facebook, Eat24 pens a break-up letter

Facebook regularly rankles users with redesigns and privacy policy changes, but lately the social network isn't very popular with businesses, either. Not many have publicly challenged News Feed algorithm tweaks that have buried their page updates and cut down exposure, but one company isn't taking the changes lying down.
