Facebook

Do you use Facebook?

I was one of the first to create an account -- back when it showed up and nobody knew what to do with it.  I had a Myspace account and that was icky enough so I was curious about this new thing.

Years later -- well, here we are.  New news about Facebook.  It can't be trusted.  Somehow I don't see any surprise there-- does anybody really trust anything on the internet?  I trust this site right here pretty much -- except I get some really odd visitors.  But the internet?  I have always been careful about what I put out there.

Well, it seems that FB has been doing some nasty things and now it is all coming home to roost.  So.....are you going to delete your account?  It seems that you can't really delete it -- all your information is still out there somewhere.  And photographs?  Better make sure you have them stored elsewhere. 

It will be a pain to get rid of it because that is how I keep up with people.  I recognize that most of the news on there is fake.  I know that most of the articles are just click bait.  I realize that I am becoming more and more bored with the whole thing. 

But....what should I do about it. 

I get up in the morning and the first thing I do is check FB.  Then I check the obits in my hometown newspaper.  Then I check my email and my blog.  Then I spend the rest of the day checking FB and I am noticing that I don't get updates from my friends -- just a select few people.  Not exactly sure why but then I go people's individual pages and they have been posting, I am just not getting the updates. 

I am becoming disenchanted but not sure how to break the addiction. 

Thoughts?
