I'm on FB just because the band I'm in wants to see if it's useful...

Wrong in at least one verifiable case, buddy.

I'm sure when we meet, we'll already be bros. I love that I "know" people on here. And you're not that far down the state!

I found myself unsubscribing to so many people on Facebook that post or reshare a barrage of crap that I'm hardly on Facebook anymore. I considered many times deleting my account but I like it as a way to stay in contact with relatives and friends that don't live near me.

I recently got an Instagram account and I like it for following sites that interest me (art mainly). Doesn't seem to have all the drama. So far anyway...

I asked my kids the other day if they had to give up a site which one would it be and they quickly agreed Facebook was the one to get the axe. I found that surprising.

mark zuckerberg is a political ideologue.
I don't want him to make a profit off of me in anyway shape or form.

aren't we all political ideolgues though?

Its pretty easy not to make Facebook money. Just don't click on ads or sponsored posts. Get a plugin like Social Fixer that removes all that crap.

Me.

Were it not for the band, far away family & retired work friends, I'd have deleted my account a long time ago. Those are the only things keeping me there.
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than Facebook. One must be cautious to say the least.

2 things I never talk about on there is politics and religion. Neither end well so I don't even try.

I unfriend people who send me requests and then subsequently ignore me. Seems they needed a friend for some game they were playing, knew me by name from high school or work and thought I'd be a good addition.
Then when I hit them up to catch up, they're nowhere to be seen.

Fook 'em!

Talk politics? You're gone!
Try to convince me your Jesus is better than my Jesus? Buh-bye!!

Drummerworld is my mainstay for daily "social media" interaction because I have a huge commonality with those here. Not only that, but I can learn something from those who are either pros or others with great ideas.
FB and other social media outlets are nothing but a giant time suck that I'd rather spend working on my craft.

Worth noting that you see the very same humans every time you leave your house. If only there were some sort of "They Live" sunglasses that would reveal Facebook Crab-People in RL.


Crap, That gives me an idea for a Google Glass app.....

Other than this forum and a few others I frequent, the only social media I participate in is Facebook, for 10-30 minutes daily. I like to wish people I know happy birthday. Peace and goodwill.

Oh, I do now. In the beginning of that site, I accepted anyone I knew from years past, but quickly lost faith in the goodness of humanity and I want to be left alone.

Now I'm very selective of who I call a friend just out of self preservation. My friendship list on that site is well under 100 and I'm fine with it. Those on that list are (and have been) with me for the long haul and I cherish them the most.

Man, I just got kicked off Facebook because I didn't want to use my real last name. Now they want people to verify their Facebook name with a valid ID. So, now I'm quitting Facebook. Screw that website. I don't need them.
