    I was dragged,kicking and screaming onto Facebook by my kids/grandkids...primary use is to stay in touch with them

    I use FB to keep in touch with folks that are not on the forum here, and also for family and friends. It came in pretty handy finding out that NN and Mrs. Clean were safe after the hurricane. That made it worthwhile, for me. I tend to worry about my friends that are in harms way in those storms.

    I use FB to keep in touch with folks that are not on the forum here, and also for family and friends. It came in pretty handy for finding out that NN and Mrs. Clean were O.K. after the hurricane. I gots friends that live where hurricanes pass through, and it's a good way to find out how they're doing. It's worth it for that use alone. Just ping all my friends anywhere outside the affected area, or their friends, and get some info.

    FB isn't that bad. It's good for a laugh every now and then. I also keep up with old friends on there that I don't get to see much anymore. Every now and then I see or get a friend invite from some of the girls that were in school around the time I was. It's a great way of saying.....Crap I knew I should tried harder for her or.........Thank goodness I didn't stay with that one. B)

    I do not have a facebook account, but my wife does. Through it she has located a few Army buds for me.
    About everyone such as old friends and family i would want to stay in touch with she has on there. No need to duplicate

    Not really.  I can’t catch up with a few dozen folks individually in 10 minutes via email...
    That's what email lists and aliases are for!

    How does that differ from this forum before they made sure political and Second Amendment stuff stayed in the right forum?

    Facebook allows you to unfollow someone who only posts junk. This forum doesn’t.  Win for Facebook, in my opinion.

    With Facebook I can open up 'Chat' and do a private real time conversation with friends. You E-mail somebody and that takes a few hours, or DAYS, for a response. And like a real time conversation, you can end up talking about totally unrelated stuff as to what the original conversation started out. Can't do that with E-mail. Facebook does have a lot of drama, and it also has a lot of news feeds if you sign up for them. E-mail doesn't have that news feed thing, either. You have to sign up for E-mail to the news sites and they bombard your E-mail. On Facebook, I can read them, or just scroll past if it's something that I don't find interesting.

    When you trim your friends list to <25, not much drama on FB (except from my one bleeding heart liberal D-i-L :s)

    And all of them are people I know IRL.

    Oops,I just double checked, and there's one I haven't met IRL

    Like Mike said, it's a tool. It can be misused, sure.

    But I'd rather use it for sharing stuff than email. And I dang sure won't share some stuff on the forum. There's just a little more security there than on the World Wide Web.  For instance, my Facebook friends know issues that most here on the forum... don't.

    Yep, if you want to look at it that way, its a tool. A tool that belongs to somebody else that has no user safeguards. Wear your gloves, eye and ear protection!
    Remember, I've been using, programming, designing, and building computers since long before most folks had ever seen one or knew what one was. "I know better" than to get involved with sites of that type. Have a chat with a computer/Internet security guy sometime, it'll probably be an eye opener - its sure was for me!
    But at the end of the day, its your decision, not mine. I can't even get close relatives weaned from that particular addiction! As the immortal Forrest Gump would say, "And that's all I have to say about that!". :smile:

    Oh boy.................discussing FB...............better than politics...........I don't use it, but y'all that do seem to enjoy its features to stay connected with folks. I think that is great and if you don't, that's great too.

    I guess I'm neutral on it. It must be popular because look at the millions who use it. 2.23 Billion users worldwide 2nd qtr of 2018. 214 million US users.

    Maybe I'm a FBphobic....................

    Moderation is the key to everything we indulge in........too much of anything is bad for us.

    So folks that disagree with you on the value of Facebook as a tool are "apologists"? Sounds strangely like Hillary saying folks that disagreed with her on Trump as a viable President were "deplorables". I've never understood the need to use disparaging condescending labels to address those that are not of the same mind as you.
    YAY! Quotes work now!
    ·pol·o·gist
    /əˈpäləjəst/
    noun
    noun: apologist; plural noun: apologists
    1. a person who offers an argument in defense of something controversial.
    Despite my dislike of face***k, I see nothing "negative" about the term 'apologist'. Just a statement of fact, nothing more, nothing less. As I said, Zuckerberg has quite the product, with people acting as apologists and promoters everywhere.
    If you (Wambli) are so in tune with technology as you say you are, you know darn well what the downsides are to sites like that. Even the MSM knows what they are. And that downside is actually the least of the reasons I decry them. Said site was originally created for teenagers, and all I hear is teenage angst and DRAMA. Fad sites like that come and go.
    So I choose NOT to so dignify that site and others like it, nor to give them any credence or legitimacy whatsoever. And this *is* my last word on the subject.

    Thanks for clarifying your position.  "Apologist" normally carries a negative connotation.  Good to know you don't mean it that way.
    Not at all. I'll denigrate face***k all day long, but said term isn't meant negatively. Now I don't understand the *why* of people vigorously defending said sites as their downsides are well known, but "whatever".
