    It was fun while it lasted, although I had to turn over the biz page to my wife, and totally delete myself. It was just way.. to distracting for my weak self control. I tell ya’ those notifications are truly the devil and will wormhole you into zombie land.

    It’s a tool.
    It’s how you use it that matters.

    I have so busy past few weeks...

    I am trying to stay off it during the day....

    the Private messages are crazy all day long though as well....

    While I am working right now, I just will try keep focused on cleaning carpets.

    This morning the van is in the shop getting checked over for a clank sound....so I am getting a bunch of office work done, but yeah....I am getting drawn into messages taking place today

    no
    I'm still in the stone age and don't use social media as a marketing tool
    Other than my three discussion board addictions (herenut, gunnut and fishingnut)
    I don't do social media at all

    from what I've seen of others, it appears too full of dramaqueerz and insecure weenies
    not unlike the sKypefaq club of old ...only astronomically more encompassing/far reaching

    Guilty.


    I enjoy the interaction with my local community far more than with carpet cleaners

    I'm not sure who's the bigger FB tool, Ashley, Marty or Chris Lee.

    Yup. I've pretty much stopped posting totally on FB groups. It's just not fun for me anymore. Tired of all the hen pecking and idiots.

    It's an incredibly ugly and embarresing inviroment on most groups.

    MB feels like church in comparison.

    Yes. Way too much time wasted.

    It's really just the same stuff over and over.

    No.

    Many years ago now I was active in a couple car groups and used it to communicate with old friends and relatives but now I don't even use it for that.

    My feed stays full of stuff I'm quasi-interested in but gets mostly ignored. All notifications are silenced.

    to me it is a lot like aol was where people think it is the internet...one of the reasons I try to avoid it

    I do get a laugh out of the "this is the future" folks......if I had a nickel

    When I purchased my first smartphone, I made the mistake of downloading the facebook app

    Wrong move! My phone wouldn’t shut up

    So I deleted it and I only surf Facebook through safari now.
