Facebook has a community of users, but unfortunately, the company has not always treated those users with the respect a community deserves. For example, a lack of transparency about Russian interference in the 2016 election and a failure to adequately handle the Cambridge Analytica issue when it was first discovered both show a lack of respect by Facebook for its users.

At an even more basic level, Facebook treats its users as a commodity to be hooked into the system, surveilled and then monetized.
