Love it! Elon takes a stand. I’ve been thinking about deleting my FB account for quite awhile now. I only use it to view two groups, a SpaceX fan group and a group about a specific model of camper trailer I own. Elon’s action made me realize that I should have just done it. And now I have. I’ve permanently deleted my FB account.
@P85Dave I agree with what you said but that is only part of the problem with FB: the other part is the company’s disregard for their users privacy and their relentless drive to monetize their users personal information without any ethical considerations as to whether or not what they are doing is right.
Okay, someone explain to me why all the hate towards Facebook recently? Did I miss something? Seems like their being scapegoated to cover ones own ignorance... Don't believe everything you read online, it's that simple... Again, what am I missing?
Facebook has offered up some entertainment value, but requires everyone to send them all their personal data, where they go, what they do, who they like, personal opinion, political affiliation, personal views, where they work, which adds they like etc.
Then when they provide this information to someone else it becomes a disaster.
We have met the enemy...and it is us.
Like buying Manhattan from the Indians for a few shiney trinkets.
Facebook can get you fired, caused divorces, caused hatred, caused murders, etc...The root of all evil.
I use a fake name, fake College, fake country etc on FB. My friends know who I am. I'm not sure how easy it is to sign up fake anymore? Hope they would be tightening that up to prevent trolls etc. Same with Skype etc. Amazing how many people link FB to everything by using it as their login for other programs. Heck, my real mane is not even Iwannam3!
So we're all just going to scapegoat a digital platform because too many people are lazy and unwilling to validate/verify what they read online? Really? That's where we're at as a society? If that's the case, we're all doomed...
Facebook didn't allow anything to happen. People using the platform did... Take responsibility for your own actions and stop blaming the platform, it's just ridiculous...
