Never had Facebook before :). Don't use any other social media either for the most part.

Only Threema.

I seldom use it these days and I barely post anything. One original post I make a year and maybe 6-7 shared articles a year is too much. I try not to do those quizzes anymore (which I used to). I just go there to see what people post and make a comment or two. But that's it.

Got a facebook account. Have friends on it. Not posting anything on it.

I have a Facebook, but I never use it.

I have Twitter, but only to get in contact with companies on questions about products.

If I want to share anything from the web, or show off anything in my personal life, I post on the activity feed on PSN.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I was kinda shocked to learn recently that people actually use Facebook, I thought it was just a name used for headlines every time an article is written about social media.
Like seriously, the website looks like it's from last decade, and that all the website traffic is for elderly people looking for minion's memes. I thought Snapchat and Instagram took over, with people like us using Forums like this for mostly civil discussion and news.
The website is useless honestly, all the news is heavily controlled to show only one perspective, you need to press a billion buttons just to do one thing, the UI is not as polished and simple as other apps. No one actually talks to their friends they added to Facebook years ago, they are just there to give the allusion that we have friends.

Just quit the website honestly, it's completely useless, and has shown time and time again that it brings nothing but trouble to everyone.

I don't use any social media like facebook except leaving fb up so old friends have a way of reaching me. Got burned out on duckface selfies, hourly updates on what someone is doing and people treating it like a diary/getting triggered when you don't agree to the stupid shit they posted. I use VPNs when surfing for porn or watching pirated movies/shows.

Do not use fb on your smartphone, they suck up all your information...

Zuck in 2009:

'You won't sell it [the data]?'

'No, of course not'

'To be clear you are not going to sell or share any of the information on facebook?'

'We are not going to share people's information... the privacy controls on fb are really unparalleled'


Read it quick before mods lock this thread too.

If you wanna REALLY be safe on the internet you would have to take some uncomfortable measures,to the point to not be doable for everyone.Just make sure you don't share nothing to expository on social media and maybe pay for a email service.
