    Oct is Fb purge month so many more will be tossed. Using Facebook has been like living under a liberal tyrant. I have grown to just over 40 freinds on Usa.life. it is slow since people love Facebook which is like loving your prison guards. Why, anyone would give up their 1st amendment rights willingly just stifles my imagination. I am there under a fictitious name on fb just to recruit others. To remain under the thumb of such a tyrant azzole that thinks people like you and me are scum, who wants our guns, shuts free voices down, is what the loyalist did during the 1700's and what the Germans endured under the brown shirts of Hitler. Someday you have to take a stand and do it on your terms. I guess it depends on what you use social media for. If its just for family and friends and your not an activist FB serves your needs. I on the other hand am addicted to destroying the liberals and their socialist agenda so I will always be a target of the left (ie;Fb)

    Hope it gets better. The interface looks great. " But the audience is just so limited."


    much like facebook was ? I am easing into it and dragging people who are still doing facebook. You dont have to sell your truck when you buy a new car, Drive both and when you realize which one best suits you you make a choice or keep both. To grow new relationships doesnt always mean you have to lose your old ones

    Just one other reason to strip power from Zucky. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article...=pocket-newtab

    The 6,600-word memo, written by former Facebook data scientist Sophie Zhang, is filled with concrete examples of heads of government and political parties in Azerbaijan and Honduras using fake accounts or misrepresenting themselves to sway public opinion. In countries including India, Ukraine, Spain, Brazil, Bolivia, and Ecuador, she found evidence of coordinated campaigns of varying sizes to boost or hinder political candidates or outcomes, though she did not always conclude who was behind them.

    Sad thing about facebook for me is that with church services being almost impossible due to COVID-19 threat of being nuked by our state government, my church broadcasts the service live on ... yep, facebook.

    If any of you think FB is just for posting pics of your cat or what you had for dinner then you have no idea of what is going on in the world.

    Social media has become a powerful weapon in the information wars.
    Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket???

    Which is why leaving it is a bad idea. So many people are influenced by what they see there, to leave would be to remove an opposition voice that points out the deceptions and dishonesty of the left. That would be very bad.

    Facebook Sued For Allegedly Using Phone Cams To Spy On Instagram Users
    Social media giant Facebook secretly used iPhone cameras to obtain “extremely private and intimate” information about the uses of its Instagram picture and video sharing app, a new US lawsuit claims.

    The legal action follows Instagram users reporting in July that they had noticed the FaceTime symbol, which indicates that an iPhone camera is on, was showing up when they scrolled their feeds.
