I left Facebook today.
Uninstalled it from every computer device and like an addict, using my willpower to not log in from anywhere. Since Chrome is always open, I had to go into my settings to block Facebook from notifying me every time a friend posts something.
I no longer can stand the newsfeed and all the trash my "friends" are posting. For starters, many are not real friends. In real life, I have nothing in common with a lot of my "followers" and after seeing what they post on Facebook, I wouldn't be friends with them in real life.
It's not a matter of agreement either. Stock and I disagree sometimes but I adore him. There's people who can discuss any topic and remain open to you as a person, and people who simply can't do that.
On Facebook, fake news and propaganda pieces are posted, shared and reposted without people doing any research first. The hate pieces...the mood in the US is unlike anything I've ever experienced. I'm extremely open minded and open hearted, which makes me a minority. The oddest thing I've noticed is how my two sons are acting. They've become extremely protective of me. They are afraid for me.
Facebook gave everyone a voice and you can say that's good. I'm not so sure it is.
