RE: Why Facebook why?
I use FB a lot to keep in touch with my geeky fish nerd friends. We share photos, ID tips and coordinate outings. Not one of us uses it for very personal stuff like religion or politics.

There is an "unfollow" button you know. I think I have 200+ friends but only care what a couple dozen have to say.

"Unfollow" is your friend, use it.

I tried that for a span of 2 years. Didn't like being so disconnected.
A friend of mine I went to graduate school with over a decade ago, had been stricken with colon cancer and died rather suddenly.
I didn't find out until a year after they died! I was saddened to hear of their passing. We had grown apart since our school days, lived in separate states far away, lost regular contact with one another as the duties of family, bills, work ect slowly constrict your life. Anyway, had I been on Facebook I would have at least known they were so gravely ill. Not that there was anything I could've done to prevent the outcome, but perhaps just to offer my support. I would've like to have been able to do at least that for them.

So .....The incessant religious tripe is the price I pay in order to stay informed I guess.

I've started to add my opinions to the religious posts that find their way to my newsfeed.
It's fun to watch them all get riled up. Big Grin

If you would accept my friend request I can forward you some crazy stuff that I get.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

It finally worked! Must have needed all the approvals from the powers that be to allow two people like us to be friends on Facebook.

Fooled them, didn't we? Evil_monster

You should share some of the FB christian comments. I like to gloat at stupidity.
