The Slow Demise of Facebook?
Wow. The amount of political (vastly red) bullshit on here is appalling. I can't even find my friends and family posts between the weeds. The "book of faces" has turned into nothing but a political dog shit, slug fest. It's become a way to promote falsehoods and misinformation (lies) to feed feeble minded folks that refuse to research and admit the truth, especially to themselves. And the space between the writing keyboard and the reader has allowed people to become truly mean, disrespectful, and ugly to anyone that will read their ramblings.
I'm a computer geek, and I'm old enough to have watched Facebook grow from the start. Facebook started as a way for family and friends to share things together and for distant family to "catch up" and be closer to each other. You know, bringing friends and family together. Posts were about that test little Jimmy passed yesterday, how your mom made meatloaf at dinner last night, that big fish your dad caught on the lake, personal stuff that was worth reading. And then came the money....
As things do in the US, greed takes over and slowly, all of our "walls" became littered with company logo feces, commercial videos, and "free games" that traded your personal information from Facebook for a few hours of matching colors together. And people bought it!
Now, Facebook has morphed into a way for political hacks to spew their bullshit to the masses, Russian hackers to convince horny men to "friend" their fake, naked girl accounts to steal information, and cowards to vent their one-sided, unfounded, and untrue political hostilities from the safety of their keyboards.
Facebook, you are nothing but ugly to me now. I get very little personal satisfaction from spending time on your platform. In fact, reading through my "wall" mostly gets me upset, and sometimes, down right angry! And this is NOT why I came here, to get upset. And this is exactly why I spend less and less time on this platform. It's become a one-way thing for me. I post, but I don't read. I "check in" to see if I've missed anything from my family, but I don't stay. I imagine eventually, I will clear out all my stuff and leave the platform all together. Better for my sanity.
Keep it up Facebook, you are doing great at killing your platform ... from within.
