A) Standard employee
B) Self-employed but at complete mercy of a company (facebook) which does not know you even exist, who's everyday change of mood could wipe you out
Does not really sound like much was gained going from A to B.
With A you're simply lost (in life).
With B you're blind.
Ideally, the best option is to find your own niche without relying "too much" on other's platform.
