Some of y’all who are saying you deleted Facebook and now your life is so much better....


What in the world were you doing on Facebook that was ruining your life?
I mean you can pick who you want to communicate with be it friends, family, or people you enjoy hearing from.

FB is full of drama and scam crap. That said, I have found some great deals in some of the sales groups and market place. I do not use to to keep up w people or communicate. If you are in my circle of friends, we text or talk on the phone. Just like anything else, use the good parts and ignore the bad. But if you let yourself get caught up in the arguing and drama, it probably is better to delete it

I got on FB because I have family strewn all over the state and don't get to see or talk to them very often. Don't have very many "friends" so that keeps my time on there to a minimum. Just keepin up with the ones I care about.

I don't get how FB can hurt you.
I use it to advertise my crappie fishing and check it at least once a day.
I scroll through the hundreds of posts in 5 or 10 minutes. Laugh at the funny ones and scroll right on by the other junk.

I deleted mine a few years ago.
The only negative I have seen is Facebook is the only way some things get communicated. Examples I have seen; a running group I used to run with only announces times on their Facebook. My daughters soccer club only uses Facebook for communication. The most frustrating one was my family and I drove to a zoo awhile back because their website showed open. Apparently they announced different hours on Facebook only.

I don't want to permanently delete because I use FB to keep up with certain things like BBQ comps and for my BBQ page. I wouldn't know when most comps are except by FB. I do plan on taking the month of October off and temporarily deleting the app from my phone. Very tired of the political negativity and regurgitated opinions. Nobody is changing the others mind so why keep arguing?

Thanks to those that posted about the social media movie on Netflix. We have our kids watching it right now. My wife and I have been aware of their tactics on a surface level but it's great to be able to show our kids why we don't allow them to have cell phones or participate with any of the social media platforms. It also let us segway into a conversation about video games and their deceptive tactics regarding micro-transactions and season passes.

When my 12 year old son leaned over and said to me, "When you manipulate the truth based on who is reading it that means there is no truth anymore" I smiled because I have hope in the future again.

Social Media is a dookshow...and FB is the worst. Now the only thing I use is Instagram occasionally to share my photos.

I mostly use it to keep in touch with family around the world. If I didn't have family overseas I'd get rid of Facebook as well.
I created a WhatsApp Family group and many joined, but some of my family are not on or refuse to use WhatsApp.
I think about getting rid of Facebook at least once or twice a month.

People share ridiculous videos and propaganda around and work themselves up. I was talking to a friend of mine recently and he's going off about all the things he's seeing on facebook and is now spewing racist garbage. I've known him for 12 years and he's never had a racist bone in his body (he owns a business and has even had black supervisors in the past).

Garbage is out there and people are being targeted for these crazy videos and articles. I only use facebook for whiskey groups.

I've never had a FB acct and never saw a need. Why get sucked into the drama?

Funny story.. I deal with a lot of fortune 500 and above companies and they often do a minor background check before allowing into their offices or on their networks. One of them rejected me due to "no traceable social media presence". I ended up having to talk with 3 levels of management before they believed me about never having had facebook.

I have TBH for entertainment and Instagram so I can get updates on our granddaughters but that's all.

It doesn't hurt anyone who doesn't allow it to. I've heard FB get blamed for everything under the sun, even for affairs...I chalk it up to the lack of personal accountability that is prevalent these days. It's easier to blame someone/thing else than to say "I chose to do that"

Those same folks are probably upset with you for deleting your account because they're looking for a reason to be upset I ignore 90-95% of my feed on FB, and choose to enjoy the small part that is relevant to me. If someone gets upset, that is their problem, not mine

I deleted mine a couple of years ago , I was hardly on it but noticed the spam emails went down after I permanently deleted it. I was also getting quite a few Phishing requests on there. It was a novelty when it was new but just did not hold my interest. The only thing I am on now is TBH, there is enough drama on here to keep me reading .

I stress everyone watching the “The Social Dilemma” documentary. I literally deleted all my social media accounts as I was watching it.

It will have you creeped out beyond belief about Facebook and other social media engines.


Of course there is a few parts that kind of brush off some stuff I think is legit like Pizzagate but it does paint an extremely dark picture of just how damaging social media has become.

Listen man your more than welcome to poke fun at my expense as much as you want. You can rest assure I don’t have the capacity or energy for any drama anymore. I was just making a suggestion on an extremely eye opening documentary warning people of the dangers and “behind the curtain” issues of social media giants such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest,etc.. and the lack of regulation they have. It had some good suggestions on how to approach social media these days as well as to help keep children from getting addicted. I found it eye opening, watch it if anyone wants or don’t. Was just a suggestion. Personally this is my remaining social media platform I have left.

I’m sure your a nice guy but not sure what your trying to accomplish by poking fun at my post. However feel free to poke as much as you like. I am too exhausted to go “back and forth” as many do. I just got off an hour long FaceTime call with my father who’s cancer has returned. Sure makes dealing with any social media drama seem a waste of time. Hope you have a good day sir.

The Social Dilemma isn't about sites like Texas Bowhunter. Specifically, the documentary focuses on the algorithms and AI that sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc use to take far more information from people than they realize and then use that information to manipulate you among other things (dating sites engage in this as well). Furthermore it details that as a consequence of how the programs are made, it results in the spread of incorrect biased information to those who already possess that bias, creating social fissures wider than have previously existed, and without people understanding what's actually real. Among many other things, they statistically measure the impact on elections and politics.
