Response to Coyotl (Reply #10)

13. You didn't read those links, did you?

 

Nor did you get the point of my post as most people do not have real social connections on Facebook.

For you, it is about politics which is not necessarily about 'friendships'. That's fine. Your choice if you want to use it.

Again, I would see no pressing need even from a political vantage. For example, I don't need to see every day what my Congress man or woman is or is not doing.

Even if you wish to fall back on the canard that it is just a 'tool', Facebook uses you as a tool far more than you use it. You have no privacy. You are constantly a part of a marketing shtick. And as this article points out, you allow Facebook to make billions in profit and avoid any taxes.

I have a choice, and after careful consideration of the pro's versus the con's, I have made a firm decision to not ever use Facebook. It is just not worth it.
