    I have never spent a second on it, have never opened an account and hate those “log in with faceturd” sign in thingies. I haven’t read up on the lawsuit or issues because I’m not personally affected, as far as I know and if I am, I can’t control the outcome. It’ll be what it’ll be. I do find it interesting that people scream about privacy but post every brain fart, picture, thought, basically everything about their lives, health conditions, you name it, and then complain about big gubmint and privacy. Their “privacy” has been sliced and diced a million ways to Sunday and sold to anyone willing to pay.

    I’m not sure it has a monopoly as what’s stopping someone from creating a competitive platform that all the cool kids will migrate to? And who cares?

    any website you visit that has a facebook plugin sends that data of your visit to Facebook. whether you have an account or not.

    have done searches and the very item I searched for shows up in an ad on facebook within seconds.
    THATS the kind of privacy people are up in arms about.

    Doesn’t bother me and I don’t buy things because an ad pops up on the interweb. I buy things because I want them or need them and when I do, I research based on spend and importance. Socks and unnywears, doesn’t matter. Laptops and TVs, cars, stereo equipment, etc. I’m researching and aren’t influenced by what pops up. It’s price and features that are important to me. And I avoid amazon at all costs but will use them as a research tool.

  • Facebook is great for gaining knowledge from self taught "experts" on subjects. In just the past year, I have been bombarded with information on Constitutional law (specifically regarding impeachment), pandemics and election laws and rules. It's wonderful.  
  • My Twitter account wants my Mic turned on when I take a picture?  F that.  Not going to post anything on there anymore.  Only following now.

    It also want access to my pics.  I want to take a live pic, no need to access my camera feed.

    Oh well it was a shithole anyways...

    Dude, the youtube links that they post are soooo informative though!

    Actually FB did something to their algorithms and I don't see any bias on my feed anymore and that is the reason I stayed friends w people so I can learn from it.

    Anyone else notice that?

    lol i would never block anybody on here. most people are above average intelligence and it is moderated so most people are pretty cool. we are all paying members so we all have some skin in the game. if this board was like is used to be before pay to post i am sure i would have some people blocked. it was a little more wild back then, haha.

    yes you would know. you would look up someone's profile that you were friends with and it is not there anymore. if you get blocked you are automatically unfriended too.

    it is interesting to know that an old high school friend who dropped out of school in 10th grade is now an authority on infectious disease and vaccines.

    it is just as you would expect. anti everything, haha.
    Dude, the youtube links that they post are soooo informative though!

    Actually FB did something to their algorithms and I don't see any bias on my feed anymore and that is the reason I stayed friends w people so I can learn from it.

    Anyone else notice that?
    i just unfriended/unfollowed/blocked a bunch of people during the protests over the summer and again in the leadup to the election. did not need that negative bullshit in my life, haha.
    I have yet to block anyone.  I have been blocked though, lol.  People are very quick to block you if you disagree w them I have found.  Imagine if that were a thing on AMT?!?  We would never discuss anything.

    I've never blocked...and I don't think I've been blocked (but would I know?).

    lol

    yes i have been blocked by some people. mainly ex girlfriends and their friends/family.

    I was going to ask if your friend was Bill Gates but then realized he dropped out of college, not high school. Ha.

    So, tell us, how do you get through the day? This site does have an "ignore" feature but I have no clue how to use it and wouldn't if I did. No FaceTurd for me but I once had a job where I used the original, printed FaceBook. Mostly for allowing access and package pickup. Phone book with a picture. Who would have thought? I coulda been somebody some day! A contenda! Something!

    My wife frets about us visiting cities and not seeing people she knows on facefuck.  Seriously?  I can't go to Seattle/SF/Chicago/Daytona/etc and not have to visit with some shitfuck that you haven't seen since high school and really don't like that much because you don't want them to be upset after they see Facemoron pictures?

    I don't even entertain that shit any longer.
    So lame.

    it is a shithole. if you engage in it. 

    your privacy has been bought and sold a thousand times by google and amazon whether you have a facebook account or not.

    What the fuck does that have to do with anything?
    My hate of faceidiot isn't that they sell info or invade privacy.

    Facebook sucks. 

    You suck if you think PearlJam.com is facebook.
    Bigly.

    Also - I don't need to "hold some type of superiority" over people who use "newsflash" to try and announce some silly witticism.

    i edited my comment because i knew how it would be taken. 

    but the sentiment remains the same. i see people all over the place claiming some type of superiority because they've never had a facebook account, usually for two reasons:

    1) privacy
    2) it's a cesspool

    with regards to number 1, like I said, that's nonsense. your privacy was gone the first time you logged onto anything on the internet. bought anything off amazon. opened a gmail account. anything. 
    2) we're on the political section of a rock band's website where some people spend a lot of their time (their right) arguing with strangers. no different than facebook. 

    at least people on facebook don't pay to argue. 

    I suck if I think pearl jam.com is the same as facebook? first, I didn't say they are the same. but fabulous comment nonetheless. so many peachy people around here these days.
