    Default Do you use Facebook?

    Ahh Facebook that cesspool of human debris. The most popular social media site in the world, one that was intended to be a place to network and interact cordially with your friends and colleagues but is now a platform for bickering, political squabbling, and trying to convince people of your indefensible opinions. Depending on how you look at it, though.

    Anyway, I finally cut my ties with this social media giant yesterday, and I'm basking in the peace of mind I've found in actually interacting with people in person. No more watching people bravely declare war on other peoples' opinions through the safety of their keyboard and screen; just good old fashioned verbal banter.

    So, simply out of curiosity, I'm interested to know what y'all think of Facebook. Do you have an experience similar to mine or do you prefer to just stay away?

    I check it out every few days. Have to say that I've never noticed anything but cordial and supportive postings. Gordontrek must be communicating with the wrong folks.

    I'm on FB but it helps with my hobbies such as local history and classical music. I have also found some relatives in America that I keep in touch with that way. I have made a few mistakes on it by accepting people who I thought were OK and turned out not to be. Easy! Simply unfriend and block from messenger and FB.

    What about Twitter? Anyone on that?

    It's hard to meet single ladies on there, so I quit after about a year

    'Yes, and I enjoy it.'

    A great place for storing photos & keeping in touch with relatives and schoolfriends.
    I still have fewer than 50 friends, and quite a few of those are family dogs...

    Tried it for a few months. It was just a big time burglar for me.
    Of course, here I am...posting about it. My time must not be too precious.

    I'm lucky one, deleted an account this week. Feel so good about it. as above said it's a time consuming. Of course there are some benefits from using social media, but disadvantages are even more for me, and very superficial. years ago one friend said it was superficial, I agreed but I said it was supposed to be so, not for profound conversations....

    and now I think myself, it is way too superficial, so I deleted it. It was never hijacked, nothing of that kind, it was just my conscious decision to delete.

    Good to know many people here on TC don't have it or deleted it

    I also once created an account and 'friended' every random person I possibly could, but then Facebook deleted it

    Yes, I use it to keep in touch with friends and former colleagues. And to follow local news quickly.
