I was on just for the market place but it didn't take me long to see it wasn't worth it so I deleted my account and don't miss it.

Holy Schniekeys!!!! You've been on there longer than Zuck.... lol

I got on facebook just after it emerged from the dorm room. When I joined it wasn't like it is now. It was mainly for professionals to network with each other. Then about 2009 it really exploded and everyone had an account. Right about Obamas second term is when the censorship started. Then When Trump got in it really turned into the fact check/ ban you for stupid crap stuff you see now.

I'm on FB a fair amount. I use it to keep in touch with family a bit more than the odd phone call. Nice to see photos of nephews that I only see once or twice a year now... You miss out on a lot with distance and FB can help fill in the gaps.
The key is to be able to ignore all the stupidity and propaganda and keep a mental checklist of where folks stand on some important issues LOL.
It won't hurt you if you don't let it.


Just happy to be here.

I'm sitting in Facebook jail now,just got out and got put back in.Apparently your not supposed to respond to posts where Trump and his supporters and 2nd amendment advocates are trashed relentlesly.I didn't swear,or threaten them but I did respond as forcefully as they gave.They reported me and I got called on the carpet for "harassment and bullying". If it weren't for some friends and family I'd be gone,I'm getting close to it now anyway.

Yeah nope, I got out of their clown car long ago and am better for it. I was there mainly for friends family and such but had enough of their scoldings and 30 day Facebook jail censorship by those daffodils. They're the enemy and stand for everything I'm against, I'll not "cow tow" for the use of their forum..... Haven't seen a fake bogus bias fact-checker since and that's truly liberating. I highly recommend it!

Once knew a guy that got a 30 day ban for using the word "Tranny" talking about working on his car. That's how stupid and inept these people are. I literally had more 30 day bans than I can recall and when you're on their radar they'll stalk and hound you forever. I have a higher regard and standards for myself than to put up with that crap. Yes there is life without Facebook imagine that.

Never joined, pretty sure I'm not missing much.


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Facebook was a pretty big time suck for me. I quit it a couple of months ago.

Facebook is valuable for business.

Wow,, I thought trappers were tougher than what's represented here, y'all got real thin skin if your letting people with no spine chase you off there.

Been there forever it seems and it has changed , however I'm not the sort to feel threatened by an unknown person that use big words to make others feel inadequate !

Some of my best friends are on there and it's a great way for me to stay in touch with them, and I also do a lot of my business exchange information and trading and bartering on it, cheaper and quicker than the phone most times, can do pictures as well.
I'm certainly not leaving them because it's grown censored, so far they have left me alone as I do on occasion trade insults with others about their challenges LOL

What I don't like I don't read, and never got upset enough about some one calling me out to thrash me when they did not like my reply.
Actually have had those threats here more than any where else LOL, what irony !!

My mistake. Fat finger typing. It should be 10 years. Still never a ban.

Never had any interest in those “social media “ sites. Would never get involved with them. Full of fake people looking for attention. This site is all I need, thank you.

There's a group that goes by the name of 'Women's March' I poke in the eye frequently. As best I can tell, they're a bunch of leftist lesbians trying to tell straight women what their grievances should be. I'm not going to self-censor and make Zuckerberg's job easier than it has to be.

I never joined but I look at my wife's account occasionally to keep up with family stuff and I use it to sell things on occasion.

I ditched it. To much hate and fighting over stuff we cannot change in this world.
Freed up alot of time for me to do more stuff that needs doing. Do miss keeping up with friends and family on there but not enough to get back into it. Zuckerberg is a puke and ill avoid anything that makes him $$

People comparing this website to facebook are missing one key factor-this website is not a leftist billion dollar enterprise attempting to control how people think and live.

Here is a thought- If you want to keep up with friends and family, why not call them? Or you can stay on there and make zuck more money.
