At sister's insistance I signed up for it when it first
got started.

Since I get way too much crap anyway I deleted it.

And many many times since have tried to unsubscribe.

Just not possible to completely stop that crap from coming in
that I've found.

IF anyone here know's the trick PLEASE post it. Iv'e done the
next best thing and put it to spam. Still some gets thru yet.

I used to be on the book of faces and early on enjoyed seeing what friends and family far and wide were up to. Enjoyed seeing their photos, family trips etc. I was also on a truck camper group for the brand of truck camper I have and really enjoyed learning from other people using the same camper.

A year ago I got off of it and deleted my account. It just got too negative for me and there is enough negativity in our world as it is without being exposed to it on that social network.

That being said, for those of you who don't think this forum, and any other forum you might be on is not a social network? Anything on the computer today designed to get people to interact is a social network. This one just happens to have a very specific audience interested in the shooting sports.

WyoBull: True, all this PC stuff, sites, etc. are a version of social media, but we can weed out what we like and dislike, and use each one as we desire.
I also liked Facebook for some things, family, old friends around the country, but with how it has become, so much negative comments and slamming of a person, then with zuck..berg doing what he did with the President, it was time for me to delete and not support his company any longer. Just a personal choice, but again mine.
Each of us will decide what we want, and as I said, weed out what we want.
Same with most professional sports now days, when they sided with kaepernick and dishonored LE, Military and the Naional Anthem for what they called inequity on blacks, while more blacks are killed everyday, by fellow blacks, and they do nothing about that, then I also joined that ban and will never spend another penny on anything related to NFL, NBL again. Again just my choice.

I am not naive enough to believe that this site is not visible to anyone who wants to take the initiative to monitor activity or gather the information we may post. I was taught early on to never post anything online that you would not want to see on the front page of your home town newspaper. One very big difference (in my opinion) is that this site and many other similar sites don't exist simply to sell your information to the highest bidder.

Just found out Zuck owns/controls "What's Ap", so I uninstalled it from my phone. I used it twice, to talk to friends in the South of BC.

I for one know, and I'm sure anyone else who never graced the pages of FB forwhatever reasons, all realize that Saubier and FB are both internet social media platforms. However, with just a bit of critical thinking and observation, it becomes very obvious very quickly that not all social media sites in the internet are created equally. Some are worth being a member of since 1999 (Saubier) based on content and people involved. Some aren't worth a second look, ....... (FB comes to mind, and I saw that 10+ years ago after several quick looks at FB).

Absolutely, BCB. They are not all created equal and that is why I spend quite a bit of time here, with like minded people sharing some of the same passions.

My only point was that with any forum we are on, I am convinced the algorythms behind the scenes are capturing every move made. How that information is used I am sure is even well beyond what I am aware of today.
