Yeah, since we are in a bear market, a lot of people do not see the value of continuing... if you look at it, everyone uses facebook for free because its easier to use and have close family members, most people do not know steemit yet they pay use while facebook does not. What is there to really lose by using Steem like you do facebook. I am here to connect with people more than small monetary gains :P I will invest more in this because getting paid to do everyday things online is the way of the future in my opinion. If you are using FB for free, YOU are the product. Congrats on the 1 million user base and I will continue being active here until I possibly can. Steem is one of the very few crypto coins with a solid use case that I especially enjoy! Love blogging and meeting new people!
