    To me, social media is the ultimate downfall of humanity, and it has been since Facebook was new.

    When I was young we had no smartphones, no apps, no google nor social media and I survived it happily.

    Today's generation is like... "wait you don't track your child with your smartphone, what's wrong with you?!! I think there should be a minimum in trust in your own child and if your kids is really going to use social media, you should teach your kid how dangerous it could be and that the real world isn't bad too.

    When I was young, we needed a huge antenna to pick up only two TV stations. Yes, Star Trek was on one of them ;)

    And there was a Television Code in those days...

    LOL. That usually happens to me when I chug down twelve Romulan ales in a row. :roflmao:

    Just as long as it's a green alien female and not a green alien transvestite I'm OK with it. :biggrin:

    I do in some way or another. Some more than others, like Telegram and Twitter every thing else like Whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook etc.no
    Always trying to limit the amount of information I disclose even when in conversation with colleagues. When Facebook wanted to verify my account by requesting copies of authenticating documents and what not, I gave them the middle finger.

    If you really want to give them the middle finger, Close and delete all your accounts with Social Media. Where or who sez we must have "Social Media" anyway? Tell'em all to f**k off and live like we did before "Social Media" existed.
    (That means going out and meeting people personally and creating real life relations)

    Some people would consider MDL forums as "social media" too, they come online every day, check posts and whatnot.

    hmm for me the MDL is not a social media but the best place in the world to learn more about Windows & Linux and also collaborate in the best possible way also ...

    Unfortunately having a Fakebook account is a necessary EVIL o_O Since Bat not has a memory because of old-timers him always reads obituaries and police reports when he wakes up. Want to make sure him not died or got arrested and don't remember :( Funeral Homes all got tired of complaints and have their own websites, but the local police are too cheap so dey continue using Fakebook :mad:

    17 year old Bat.2 earns spending money wheeling and dealing :g: no pun intended,;) buying and selling ATVs and ATV parts. Yahoo Groups died years ago and Craigslust and LA Sportsman are so Full of Fake Ads that the only place to do it is with Fakebook Groups and Marketplace o_O

    Words of Caution: If you're looking to buy a house half way around de world :g: Don't click on any dating ads and fall in crush with any teenage Fakebook Dwellers :oops: Your present-wife gets mad you got a next-wife, and your next-wife gets mad you got a present-wife and :eek:
