Re: facebook is clearly and totally the devil for us

The only social network I belong to is FB, and only for my wife, so she doesnít have to explain to others why her husband isnít on it.

FB used to be a real problem for me, but I stay away from it now. It gave me a false sense of connectedness to others and it gobbled up a helluva lot of my time with itís distractions.

But since I tend to hate most people itís easy to stay away from it.

Re: facebook is clearly and totally the devil for us

I am on FB because so many people related to me already were. I limit my "friends" and won't friend anybody I don't know or don't know well in my real life. And I try to be very careful about what I post. On social media anything you post is out there on the net forever, I guess. Scary.

All of my "friends" are only people I actually would talk to in real life. Every few months I go through them and purge some.

You actually have another solution - you can download your Facebook data from all years of use. Pictures, wall-posts, comments, messages... In a ZIP-file.
I did that, tried viewing the HTML files and it looks good. I plan to delete my Facebook once and for all when I've finished something and then acquired the rest of my profile data. I hope it will be a dopamine harvest!

Re: facebook is clearly and totally the devil for us

I didn't get a facebook account till very recently because I couldn't use the text chat function on my VR headset without it. And I now realize facebook is way more than just adding a bunch of friends and posting pictures of your dinner.

I actually haven't played much with it yet but I think it could be a god send during these coronavirus social distancing times for many families and friends.

I was looking for game apps to play with my niece, nephew, and my socially isolated dad. And I found some but playing them, we had to learn the "friending" and joining a party system of each app, download the apps slowly, and search through the google store to find good apps. It was really fun but it was a little cumbersome and required some prep (downloading games first).

But with facebook games, it's all a uniform friending system and inviting everyone appears to all be the same I think. And there are just a ton of games perfect for socializing with. It's just much simpler to use. Add to this, windows pcs don't usually have all the same apps as android and apple devices. But facebook games appears to be multiplatform. Really important to me cause I'm giving my dad my windows laptop and am going to control it remotely using TeamViewer so that I can watch movies, do youtube exercise routines, and play games with him (he cannot handle tech at all and has early dementia so can't learn to do things). Facebook games makes it really easy for me to use my mom's ipad she gave me to play games with my dad on the windows pc I gave him.
