Quote from: JudgeDredd on March 25, 2018, 03:26:46 PMI gave up on Facebook in 2014. Not due to data farming issues - I'm well aware they farm information and I was always pretty damn sure they sold data on - data is huge business nowadays.The reason I gave up was - well, personal. I was using it to keep in contact with people I had known in the forces (for the most part), some old school friends and family. I was pretty shocked at some of the things I saw those friends from the forces linking themselves to. I never saw them like this and I wasn't impressed and frankly I saw a side to some of them that I didn't want to be associated with.Also, wtf when you unfriend someone or didn't accept a friend request and they got their knickers in a twist??I couldn't put up with the "friend politics" in it all and decided to punt it.One of the most liberating things I did.By the way, the reason I wasn't particularly fussed about the data issues was because there are hundreds of ways, day to day, that companies get data on you. FB was just one of them and admittedly a bit wider with it's "dragnet" policy.
