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.

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


..L.T.A.

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

"The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them ... was all about: 'How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'" said Parker, who joined Facebook in 2004, when it was less than a year old.

"And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever," he told Axios. "And that's going to get you to contribute more content, and that's going to get you ... more likes and comments."

Parker added: "It's a social-validation feedback loop ... exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you're exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology."
