    Shortly after joining, I developed a rare neurological disorder. Took two weeks to becoming walker bound, and I was spending most of the day in full neurological pain. I'd go to FB to find a smile, but would get turned off by whining about brake jobs, late deliveries of guitars, butthurt over poor service in restaurants. I had to get out of there.

    P.S. Much better these days!

    Of particular note to me, one of those people who are using FB to make money really came down on me one day, because I simply questioned the worth of what they were pedaling. The party is on FB, and has a YouTube site pedaling the same stuff. I had gone to the trouble to look them up, thought it was malarkey and asked in a very civil tone to express the value of their product. The reply had me scratching my head, to wit, my question by its very nature would cause an imbalance in the power of the product because the negativity of my faith in the product would weaken it for everyone! Since I had no response to that line of reasoning, I simply deleted the post, and asked not to see any more like it, which apparently only works for a few days.

    I bet you could find a thread about each of those things here on TDPRI.

    Yeah, but I'd have to look for them. They wouldn't end up in a feed on my page. On another note, TDPRI don't really know much about me and as far as I've been a member, hasn't pulled the kind of security crap on their contributors like FB does.

    To the OP. Don't know. Never had the displeasure of joining FB.

    many years ago I created a FB page which consists of a photo and link to my website
    I receive continuous clickbait emails from them, begging for my participation, but don't bite

    I do no social media. Never have, never will. Don't need it, and don't want it ;)

    Haha! Touche! Well.... I suppose you got me there ;) BUT! I consider this forum more of a valuable asset than I do a "social media" service ;)

    I stopped watching television!
    I stopped reading newspapers!
    I stopped walking and only skip, hop and jump!
    I stopped staying crispy in milk!
