I won't join FB.

I want to be the last person on earth without a FB acct.

I cheat though because Mrs EM is on it. (Hell, two of our dogs have FB pages)
I don't "use" it, but she shows me stuff all the time I'd otherwise know nothing about. Mostly cute puppy videos, but I have to credit her with this...

"Hey, Bob wants to know if anyone wants a 1911 for $350".

Within half an hour she had gotten my number to Bob who got it to the seller, who texted me a pic, and I said, "Holy FUCK it's a POLISHED NICKEL 1911 for $350!" LOL (with a box of ammo and an extra mag too!)

I "liked" FB a lot that day. Big Grin

But I try to tell him it's all in how you use it. You have pretty much full control over how much of your information gets out there. You also have control over what you see and read. I try to keep my FB pretty low drama. I enjoy it.

You have NO control over what facebook makes available to advertisers. Real name, IP address, likes, friends list, text, pictures, etc. You sign over all rights to privacy and cookies make sure they know everything about your device or computer. It is not hackers or internet snoops I am worried about, it is Facebook itself. Even what you hide is available to them.

Even this forum has links to facebook right now. I use Firefox with noscript and block all facebook plugins.

No. My dad will be the last person on earth without a FB account. He won't even put a credit card online.

I have a facebook account that I never use for anything other than getting discounts when you "like" a retailer, I have zero friends on it and never sign into it.
Zuckerberg is a huge libtard and I won't give the site any traffic.


I'd say some of the decline in usage on most forums comes from shitty attitudes.
I only post things for sale occasionally over on PAFOA because I simply cannot stand one of the moderators who I find pretty damn childish and the general holier than thou attitudes o more than one member there. It's probably been a year since I made a real post other than a WTS.
Same for the Survivalist forum, the mods treat everyone like they are 12years old so you have to post like one or get a time out.

This is why I have cut back on forums, I've yet to really have any sort of problems here save for a couple members I have on ignore, but when there is limited places to post I just have found my time is better spent reloading, reading and spending time with my kids.

If this Facebook page does get set up. Is there some new-fangled forum wizardry that could be set up to echo the FB posts to a thread here so us luddites can keep up? Even if it's read-only.

The Facebook page for pa2a has been up for quite some time now, Rocketfoot was just rejuvenating interest in it. I'm not sure if the feed from the page could be echoed here, I'm also not sure that would be a good idea.

^^^^^^This!

I'm shocked (not really) that FB is still relevant.

I will admit that it has some redeeming qualities.

My wife and her FB clan use the fuck out of it to rescue and reunite lost dogs with their owners on a regular basis.

If not for FB, she would not have been involved in this guy's initial rescue when it was posted on FB that "a dog is seen on a rooftop", and then later with our adoption of him.

This is the pic she saw on FB (he had mange - no hair)
[Image: Roofus%20Rooftop%20Sleeping_zpsmqzzasfx.jpg]

I can say that without FB there was a 99.9% chance that he would have been euthanized by animal control - which is where he was headed as they loaded him into a police car until one of his rescuers asked where he was going to be taken. She then asked to take him instead because of the reputation that place has for putting down pits - dangerous or not. Now he's ours and is currently lying upside down on the love seat - snoring, instead of dead.


Lost pet pages are amazingly effective vs the pre-Facebook method of stapling flyers to a few telephone poles and likely never seeing your dog again.

Like anything it is what you make of it. There are also gun sale pages.In my area there are a few auction pages and yard sale pages we keep an eye on.
