    Yes, let's all stick to twitter-length hyperbole. Better society that way. Just look at the US election.
    Nah, I like the long posts for discussion.

    Really it's just passion. It's nice to see passion about something that isn't dangerous or illegal. I think not having passion in anything is a sad life to lead.

    I was on FB for only a couple of months. Being in management i couldn't believe the incriminating things our employees were posting. I felt it was best if i didn't know. I'll leave that to HR.

    Nah... don't be silly. I just didn't like them. They we're uuuge! They should be clickable so you can know they're there, but only see them when/if you need too, imho.

    No. They asked to be "friended" (Is that the right term?). They then post things you can see. Calling in sick while posting pics of a party they're at. I didn't want to see that so I left Facebook.

    I knew back around and even before the myspace days, to steer away from social-network hosting sites/services, for my own good of course. Seems I am a rare breed from that era that was able to do so...I will admit though that I have a non-maintained Google+ account though.

    Ditto. Never did myspace or facebook.

    I was recently reading something on browsing privacy and facebook and EVERY website that has a Facebook link on it - Facebook records your presence on that site, the date, time and duration. You don't even have to click on the hyperlink BUT you DO have to be a Facebook Member.

    One question: when was the last time there wasn't a Facebook link at a website?

    In that case then those employees are just dumb.

    Agreed. I will never friend a boss or coworker on a site like that. I disabled my FB years ago though.

    I got my wonderful yet opinionated wife started on FBook because I got roped into Farmville by a few overseas friends.
    When she saw that mind numbing deal she was hooked.

    Think it all started maybe 5 years ago.
    I stepped away from Facebook after a few months of seeing stuff I didn't really want to see.
    The wife still maintains my logins there though.

    Edited for clarity: It goes a little deeper..I read an article where statistics showed that user data requests to facebook from government and state authorities rose 13%, and over half those requests were prefaced with an nda.

    If anything these past couple of pages won't convince anyone to move to an android or windows type of device, since both are guaranteed to come preinstalled with Facebook...;)

    Not a good suggestion. The elections have made Twitter a cesspool for anyone with half a brain and a keyboard.
    Twitter now requires half a brain? At least that's a step in the right direction. But what do I know? I didn't even know you had to have a keyboard to use Twitter.

    Not if you use a browser extension that replaces them.

    Another example of it's a privilege to be stupid me thinks.

    For informational sake, how does one disable a Facebook account? It might be my only New Years Resolution this year. LOL

    I believe you have to manually block each and every other Facebook user. When you block the last one, your account will be automatically disabled for 24 hours.

    I can't recall how but it is buried. I remember following an article online on how to do it. I think it starts with privacy settings, can't remember exactly.

    Facebook tries to discourage you from doing it. I think if you type in "disable account" in the settings search bar (not sure if this is still a thing), it will lead you there. Deleting is permanent, disabling allows you to use it again when you choose to log in next, even though your profile appears deleted.
