    I don't have it and a lot of my friends say its becoming an elderly home and thats why they delete their accounts. The only reason i would have a facebook account would be to use tinder;)

    Likewise mate. I once had a friend who was upset with me because I had not liked her post, jeez I said, 'I have hardly been on FB this week' but she was convinced I was trying to disrespect her. And that;s Facebook for ya :).

    I have an FB account but use it almost exclusively to stay in contact with shipmates from my previous incarnation :)

    I have to admit that without FB I doubt if I would have been able to re-acquaint with many of my long lost brothers in arms.

    Other than that I hate the spamming rubbish that makes its way around and the misinformation that is peddled and what's worse, believed, by people is horrendous

    Well facebook is the land of Trolls and fake news!!! Now in my country we are in Presidentail race elections, in two months; and the presidential canidates are in the public eye. Pitty for them I guess. I am not sure that they will be ready for the tons of fake and sick news. But that is politics under the social media and social network

    Have it, rarely use it. Deleted a prior account in 2012 due to infighting in a Jeeping club I was in. Lost several friends and did not start a new account until 2017 after prodding from a friend.

    I have a FB account just to get news from my familly and friends in France. I consider FB as an open book so I never talk about my job, politics or what I broughtor want to buy. I just post photos of my dogs, I don't think there is one with me since I open the account (well there is one but I was 5y old!).
    Never play any game on it and my password is something like 6r2i8c3iY3vb8v65n5Z7eBJhFXV5 .

    I do not have a FB account. I will never have one. NEVER. To me FB is just a bunch of silly nonsense. I use to say.."facebook is for girls". so I won't say that any more. I don't want to offend anyone......I do check it out,on my wifes FB page, when there are new pictures of my grandchildren.

    I think they are corrupt, have gotten too big for their boots. I doubt when the idea was conceived they had any thoughts of using members personal details to do wrong but 'Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely' .

    And that is why I have removed all FB social button from this site. They would never get any of our details anyway but just dont wish to be associated with them. Oh and I have deleted my account too ;)
