I shut my facebook years ago, and I don't regret it. All it did:
1. Make me realize how shitty a lot of people I kept as acquaintances or friends were. Bitching about speeding tickets when they were speeding, constant photos of drunken parties, etc. Turns out it's easy to leave when you don't like anyone on it anymore.
Also, I really don't like this consistent narrative about FB or data manipulation having waves in the US election - not because it's untrue, but because it suggests these companies have a responsibility for making sure you're not retarded enough (either side of the aisle) to fall for it.
You get exactly what you deserve as a democracy, and if you were stupid enough to fall for fake news or clickbait or whatever (note: I'm using this generally, not referring to recent results) then you get exactly what you deserve, and it's not the companies doing the manipulation that should be shamed - it's the brainless sheep being manipulated.
SpiritWolf, 21 Mar 2018Deleted it few months ago, before it was cool. :) Also i don't use Google services. Google and... moreNice going! I don't use any of google's products and/or services either since about 1 year ago.
And my fb acc is deleted since 4 years ago as well.
To use google/facebook is to give your identity to them.
Facebook does ma nut in! Not a fan!
I must confess I did open up an account a few years back, but then deleted it, I thought that was the end ...... BUT the account got reactivated again to my total annoyance when I plugged in my Gear VR (Occulus owned by facebook)
Call me naive, stupid or whatever but just thought it was sly the way it was done.
Deleted it few months ago, before it was cool. :) Also i don't use Google services. Google and Facebook are two no 1 New World Order companies.
Is deactivating enough? Still fb can gather data through the installed fb app and the cookies in the browsers.
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2018all your phone contacts are on facebook due to whatsappDamn. Now it make sense how Facebook is able to recommend friends whenever I meet someone and add them in contacts or someone in my WhatsApp group who are not part of my contacts in phone. I always used to wonder how accurate Facebook was with recommendation. Time to get rid of both Facebook and WhatsApp.
I deactivate d my account for years ago and i now i thought it was one of my best decision.. i have more time for myself
AnonD-349743, 21 Mar 2018I never kept mine for over a year, in fact I let it get frozen and then subsequently deleted. ... moreExactly! The Foxnews worshipping too, propaganda news all over the place. And i still can't forgive them for taking away chronological order but i did win many contests from there so i'll be gone when it's gone, won't miss it though.
I am mostly on Facebook to connect with family in Ireland and some friends who arent close by. I ain't deleting mine

I already deleted useless facebook account years ago,it's boring and useless
I never kept mine for over a year, in fact I let it get frozen and then subsequently deleted. Good riddance, and Mark is perhaps the least competent youth of business "majors". He's not even passable as a human, I've seen cockroaches with more charisma than Suckerborg. Politically automated oversight is a good way to kill a social media platform in 2018; no one wants a corporations definition of fake news when mainstream tech is going all out to try and leverage a party stuck on wedge issues. Facebook is a shade of blue for a reason, don't let CNN and the like make you think otherwise. Whatsapp's Co-Founder learned their lesson it seems, don't make a deal with a cyborg.
