FB, Twitter, etc have their uses, but the amoumt of harm they are allowed to do effectively surpasses the 'benefits'.
They are poorly run and managed.
Heck...I recently thought I was doing the 'socially correct' thing and accepted a whole bunch of 'friend' requests only to discover I was subsequently 'restricted' from access for some form of 'trolling'....and all I did was click on 'yes' or 'ok' - whatever.
So...if anyone feels a NEED to be connected to me via FB....well tough titties...I'm only going to be approachable by genuine human beings....not naive childish users of junkware social media.
I can keep REAL friends without such rubbish....longest-lasting I have known now for 52 years....we went to Primary School together.
Too much damage is done by them....particularly bullying - [resulting in suicides] ... slander, libel and Identity theft.
Yes, so it's [mostly] the fault of who uses it.... but how many of you have heard of instances of Police interaction to have pages removed?
Community 'social' sites [forums] such as Stardock's ARE 'policed'....eg. if someone posts personal information that 'may' cause an issue [to them] it's simply deleted.
I think the next time I log into FB it will to change whatever settings there are in place to stop the email notifications of 'requests' or 'xxx wants you to view his latest photo of Fido' .
Anyone feeling a NEED to contact me....my actual email is on the 'about' page...
