Facebook
Hey, everybody! Smile



So, Facebook is one of the social media I use. As I'm logged in, and with messenger turned on, I see the up to the minute activity info in the upper right screen. I thought, that's kinda weird, creepy too. I got to change some settings or something.


Sometimes I hate Facebook. Angry

RE: Facebook
I've always hated facebook, from a distance.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I did a full cancel one time. I had a short window to change my mind, or else it would be permanent. I caved. Laugh out load

What short window? A few years ago I deactivated my Facebook .. It was still waiting for me two years later. Just log in and its all there still.

RE: Facebook
I think it is fucking stupid that Facebook really thinks they can get all their users to use their real names. Joe Smith is a real name. It isn't about reporting crime or keeping people safe online. They simply want to data mine for their corporate advertisers so they can turn around and sell you crap.

I don't remember the details. It was last year sometime. I remember there being a 2 day period, (or something), to change my mind. I went for the delete option, not the deactivate. I don't remember for sure.

Anyway, the point of this thread is not how easy it is to get back on Facebook. It is to vent my frustration/concerns with Facebook, over the real-time activity log of friends. That's the weird part.

RE: Facebook
I turned off all notifications. Long time ago.

I don't need to know the type of shit someone took.

I don't need to see who shared some silly meme from a radio station.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I'm with you. (I'm not too technical, so I'm not sure how to do that.)


I'm also concerned that everyone can see every move I make, (and what color it is).

There's something in the friend settings. You can unsubscribe from them...it's not like unfriending (that's different). You won't get the pesky updates about what they do.

Or on your phone app, just turn off push.

If you don't want everyone to know all your shit....don't post on Facebook.

Or you can set up groups so only the people you want will see your shit.
