If you wanted the online service X to be ads-free and not collect and resell your personal data, how much should you pay to make up for their lost revenue?

It's a question has been roaming in my head for a while, and today I've decided to try and collect some rough data to come up with a price tag.

#Facebook's ads revenue in 2021 was almost $115B. The platform has about 1.9B daily active users, and 2.9B monthly active users.

($115e9 / 2.9e9) / 12 = $3.3 per month

Do we want to assume instead that most of the ads revenue comes from the daily active users, and the fraction from those who login every other week or so is negligible? No problem:

($115e9 / 1.9e9) / 12 = $5 per month

Would you be happy to pay up to $5 to use a social network that connects you to the whole world, but that doesn't hoard your personal data like a junkie, doesn't resell your personal data to controversial actors like Cambridge Analytica, and doesn't profit from targeted ads that push people towards extremism?

Many prefer to see a few ads and don't mind what is done with their data, as long as the service is free. Many, instead, would surely prefer to pay $5 a month, if that's the price to pay to buy Facebook's respect for your data.

The main problem is: why aren't we even given that choice?
