  1. I left FB for personal use 5 yrs ago! It puzzled people at the time, but I found for me it was not bringing me closer to people. I did lose touch with some people, but I feel the relationships I have now are far more meaningful!

      That’s a wonderful result:) I’m happy to hear that. I know since I’ve stopped visiting FB by like 90%, I feel so less stress. Behind the screen friendships are superficial.

    I deleted all FB products last March and am totally fine without them ~ better actually, considering that I’m writing so much more instead of having inane gossipy chats all day. I hardly argue about politics now, which is great because that’s utterly pointless too. As far as the ads, I still get tons, but they’re from things I’ve already looked up or clicked on, so I don’t mind that. They don’t come from private convos.

      I don’t know about Google but I personally see the lack of social interaction outside of FB from people who say ” they care about me”.

        My family has my phone number. They can call or text me whenever they want. On my birthday, I did not get a single call or text from my family. My wife made a FB post about my birthday and several family members wished me a happy birthday…

        Google works hand in hand with FB. They spy on you. Ever did a google search and have ads pop up on your FB? And they collect your personal information. It’s not so much a “social media” as it is an intelligence gathering tool.
