    I have never had a FB account nor will I ever get one, even if it were the very last communication method left for humankind.
    I block everyone's feed that annoys me.  For me it was nice to log on and see mostly news, etc.  Recently the targeted ads are annoying as hell.  If I look up lawnmowers on Amazon the next time I log into FB I see tons of lawnmower ads.

    A few years back you could set up an option where your comments, etc. would not appear in the news feed.  They did away with that so everyone pretty much sees what you comment on.

    I personally just don't put any personal info on FB, and feel like I have nothing to worry about. My friends are mostly strangers with shared interests, plus a small number of really close friends. Otherwise, it's just news and music feeds. I agree the ads are annoying, but at least you can tell them you aren't interested in them, and they go away forever... to make room for your next Amazon search, lol.
    I would find it difficult to get rid of FB even if I wanted to - I just get way too much useful info in my news feed, mostly about music/bands/artists, as well as news headlines from sources of my choice. It's by far the easiest way for me to keep on top of what I'm specifically interested in. I would feel really out of touch without it.

    Easy to say that the majority of trump’s supporters also support this.

    Trump: the wall has to be see-through. You have to know what's on the other side. 

    :rofl:

    I guess he'll be tendering out some force field companies?
    Did he really say it's going to be see-through? So what, like a fucking chain linked fence or like prison bars? It's really not a wall if you can see through it, lol.
    Ummmmm you ever heard of glass?
    Ummmmm yeah I have. You really think that's a viable option? I already brought up the window washing problem, lol.
    Plenty of cheap labor there to wash it ;)

    Oh really? Well that is dumb. Yes, it would be nice if you could actually select who sees each comment on a case-by-case basis. I would love to have more control over each individual post. The sweeping "they see it or they don't" choice isn't refined enough IMO.

    you can actually block people from seeing something you post. but you have to do it each time, and I think i saw that if you have any mutual friends, and one of those mutual friends comments on it or likes it or something, the person you had blocked from seeing it will be able to see it. it's stupid.

    Yeah there used to be an option called "Block my comments from newsfeed" or something to that effect.  That was nice because you could comment on news posts about politics, etc. and not worry about pissing off friends.  Now they see everything unless they "unfollow" me.

    I only post in closed groups..i think literally only the one I administer.  I guess I'm likely to be targeted with Pearl Jam ads because I'm pretty sure that's all there is.

    Thanks for the fb info, people. I’m still really reluctant to go ahead, even with a very limited profile that is locked down. Nothing I’ve learned about fb makes me feel good.

    I only use closed groups too. I would never join one that isn't closed - it's a nuisance for all my FB friends otherwise.

    Doesn’t it depend on the settings of where you’re posting? If you post in a closed, or private group, like the official Pearl Jam group, only people in the group can see the posts. Other pages have it set wide open. They tend to be media related pages or businesses. So if you comment on the page of the burrito place that they gave you diarrhea, all your friends could theoretically see it.

    ^^^ Yes, that is how it works. That's why I only go with closed groups.
    It sucks when it comes to news articles or whatever that I want to comment on or discuss with other random interested people. I can't hide those comments from anyone, and I really don't want that stuff going onto all my friends' newsfeeds. That is by far my biggest beef with Facebook on a personal level.

    I have never had a FB account nor will I ever get one, even if it were the very last communication method left for humankind.
    I block everyone's feed that annoys me.  For me it was nice to log on and see mostly news, etc.  Recently the targeted ads are annoying as hell.  If I look up lawnmowers on Amazon the next time I log into FB I see tons of lawnmower ads.

    A few years back you could set up an option where your comments, etc. would not appear in the news feed.  They did away with that so everyone pretty much sees what you comment on.

    Twitter is my new favorite.  
    They still have those settings available, FYI. You can totally choose for your comments to not be viewable by others.
    I personally just don't put any personal info on FB, and feel like I have nothing to worry about. My friends are mostly strangers with shared interests, plus a small number of really close friends. Otherwise, it's just news and music feeds. I agree the ads are annoying, but at least you can tell them you aren't interested in them, and they go away forever... to make room for your next Amazon search, lol.
    I would find it difficult to get rid of FB even if I wanted to - I just get way too much useful info in my news feed, mostly about music/bands/artists, as well as news headlines from sources of my choice. It's by far the easiest way for me to keep on top of what I'm specifically interested in. I would feel really out of touch without it.

    Russia was able to acquire entire contact and friend lists, and blow through all user "security settings."

     FB even has the ability to track users and suggest "friends" that a customer may not want to know "IRL" such as someone's "masseuse." FB is not disclosing how they do this. Ew.

    There are other services that can provide a news and interest timeline as well as or better than FB. 

    If a consumer needs to have strict protocol and settings about use of a product, does that not speak to the quality of the product?

    My wife and I are renting a cottage this summer from someone we know. we are not friends on facebook, nor do we have friends in common. we only know each other's phone numbers. All of a sudden this year this woman became one of my suggested friends. I have no fucking clue how, as I've never searched for this person online that I can recall, and if my wife has, she's not on facebook. it's freaking me the fuck out.
