    Be careful. You can become addicted easily. It can be seriously addicting like RJ. But Facebook is a great way to keep up with people you don't actually see often. Sit in the bleachers and watch the show. It's as good as you let it be. icon_cool.gif

    I reopened my FB account that I left without any activity. For last few days I have been getting friend requests. I sent a message to one guy asking to meet and then we shared few messages. He immediately asked if I want threesome or group. My response was casual, said first we should meet and then see where things goes. I guess I have been off from the scene for a long time. That's my last FB experience. icon_neutral.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    FB is a great way of keeping up with people you never gave a shit about before FB convinced you otherwise.

    It's a time sucking waste. I left FB, am rarely on RJ, and have never been happier or more productive.

    And then there's this:

    Some good thoughts here. I have used Facebook to get in touch with people from years ago which distance and life itself have separated us as well as finding people I never really knew. It's a sad situation for those who become narcissistic via Facebook. I see those folks all the time in my feed and just sort of shake my head, feel bad for them and move on. My family doctor as a child, who was the father of my father's best friend so he was like a grandfather to me, once gave me some good advice when he said that anything is excess is not good. True then and still true. Americans, in particular, have a difficult time keeping things under control which is really a shame because in the end, you don't get to really appreciate all that you have becuase you've always got your good eye looking for the next conquest - be it a new friend on Facebook or RJ or wherever. Sorry for my Edith Bunker rant but when venues such as Facebook are used for what they really are (and maybe not what Mark has in mind), the day will be better. icon_cool.gif

    Limited FB experience here.

    Never saw much reason to "follow" sites. (Maybe just a few). Avoid becoming "friends" with anyone you don't already know. And if your "friends" on FB are exceptionally chatty - posting about everything they see or do, you can keep them as friends, but "unfollow" them, so you only see their posts when you want to.

    A bunch of former RJ'rs are on FB, and created a special "group" about 2 years ago, but the group is less active now than RJ.

    FB groups are much more enjoyable if you don't read/post comments. I follow a few local ones, mainly to see people post pics of the olden times.

    I would suggest creating two FB accounts.. one for keeping in touch with people you actually care about. Create another account to join FB groups and for semi-friends.

    Adding Social Fixer and F.B. Purity to your Facebook experience is a huge help... you can filter out whole categories of crap you don't care about (i.e. the games on there, I don't need to know about your virtual broccoli) as well as phrases (I immediately added Kardashian, Jenner, Trump, Kimberly Davis, etc.) and you won't see those posts.

    I also recently discovered a new trick... if you have friends who are constantly liking/forwarding memes and whatnot from some of these clickbait pages (for some reason so many of them seem to be radio stations, or at least pretending to be), you can click the little "v" at the top right of the post and choose "hide all from 96.5 FM" and not see them anymore.

    It does have its good points, for one that such a large chunk of the populace is on there. We started planning our HS reunion and found over half the class in a week.

    I used Social Fixer for a while, but then the developer said Facebook contacted him because his script "interfered with the user's Facebook experience" and basically told him to stop.

    It's still working as far as I can tell. I'm not worried about upsetting Facebook, they're still getting my data for free (I also have ad block which probably should bother them more).

    the online stuff NEVER goes away.
    At best just fades into obscurity.

    How will your current profile add or subtract from things that you consider important ten years from now? Given that these "important things" may not even be invented yet.

    Hmm, good to know... that might get me to use Facebook again. Thanks!
