Hard to imagine I, once again, got flicked from FB for 30 days in the hole.  Minor comment about popping some turd in the mouth earned banation (is that a word?).  Thankfully we gots good ole SA/PA to come spew our vile so we don't explode from self-emulation.

Did you know that FuckenBurger is now reading your Messages as well? I got a 3 day for saying something to a good friend of mine that apparently clicked on some fuking algorithm thingy. Seriously, F-B truly fuking sucks.....more than ever before....

Messsenger is useful but I can’t for the life of me come up with a good reason anyone is using facebook noncommercially. And to use it while constantly complaining about the very features that make it what it is (and are carefully spelled out in the EULA) speaks to the intelligence of the complainers.

WhatsApp is a Facebook property and it's extremely useful and well done. I use it for both voice and text/photos. (I use Signal as well which is also very very good.) As a result, my per month cell minutes are in the tens these days.

Facebook itself? Meh. I do use it but only for Marketplace.

That said, Facebook tracks me (or tries) and sells ad targeting (monetizes) based on what it sees. However, most ads I would see are filtered out by uBlock Origin, Ad Block Plus, .... Even still, Facebook makes money off my social graph. If I ditched my account, Facebook would still monetize me by tracking someone they know exists. If I burned my computer and moved to Nome they would still monetize what they know of my graph with my then friends. It's all pretty insidious.

I know some of the people who work on this and they are insanely smart. If you exist, you will be monetized. If you cease to exist, you will be monetized. You will be monetized.

oh man that is deliciously put. 
 

WhatsApp, Fb messenger, and signal are the primary voice  comms platforms used by my firm for all of our Myanmar (signal), Thai (fb messenger) and other Asian clients (WhatsApp). Marketplace is pretty good too.  Personally the minute my paycheck no longer depended on numbers of eyeballs, I stopped posting because could not justify the risk/reward.

Careful rico someone gonna think you are some kind of over educated elite.  The reality is that credit agencies and banks and broker/dealers and cold callers of all stripes have been monetizing our personal information from the moment someone had a piece of paper with a name, address, and record of a purchase. Facebook just figured out a better way to sucker people into giving it away for nothing.

I gave up FB last year. At first I just started unfollowing folks who insisted on posting divisive political BS, then I realized the only posts left which I saw were adverts and my wife's posts. My wife and I talk at home, and I really don't feel the need to compulsively scroll through ads, so no more FB and slightly more privacy, only slightly more because Olsonist is spot on in his post above.

Not really. In 1984, the Party wanted control and squashed anything which threatened that control. Mark Zuckerberg does not want control and, as odd as this may seem, he is fairly apolitical. He thinks he can ride this political wave and then that political wave. He just wants the money.

the only value of facebook's commerciality is that people use it noncommercially.

The "reason" you're lookiing for would be "emotion-driven marketing" to get people to use facebook noncommercially. You ostensibly are employed in the same niche that facebook inhabits and you can't figure it out? That's like a stripper who is befuddled by the free spaghetti buffet.

Did the Party actually want control? They let O'Brien do what he wanted once he was "cured", ultimately they even let Winston and Julia do what they wanted once they were cured.

The Party only used control to get what they really wanted ... love, devotion. Obedience was nothing compared to love.

The main non-commercial reason I'm on it is I'm half a world away from most of the people I know, and they are on it already. It's a convenient way to stay in touch with the people you don't talk to on the phone regularly.

It's ubiquitous enough that I'm not going to be able move all my stateside friends and family, really all my friends and family who aren't sitting on the dock with me here in NZ, over to some other platform like MeWe. I'm on that, I have two friends and have never seen or had a friend request from anyone I know personally. Of course, I never go there because there's no one there so nothing interesting happens...the snake eats it's tail.

There just isn't the critical mass of people over there to get people to move to a new platform. Groups are handy, again because of the critical mass. We use a group for the local cruising community here in Whangarei, for everything from organizing social events and sharing relevant news to selling stuff and figuring out who left that red, flowered plate at happy hour this week.

There is much not to love about it, and I do lock down my profile as much as you can. e.g. I've had Platform Apps locked since about the 4th time someone sent me a Farmville request back in the day.

The problem I have with Signal is I'm the only person I know who has it installed...so it's kind of quiet.

It's like when I figured out how to use PGP to encrypt my emails. The only person I know who knows how to read them is my best friend, and we really don't have much to say that's worth taking the bother to encrypt.

I have a software client who needed a privacy statement, EULA, and a couple other things. Turns out Facebook has one of the best EULAs to copy terms from, google’s privacy stuff is way better.

Love and devotion? Bullshit.

It was all about fear. Room 101 broke love and devotion.

Control is the reason for the boot on the face. Control is how power is maintained.

How people give up their control is important.

I think my Jack Russell identifies as male.    She tries to hump legs and sometimes hikes to urinate,    This is confusing, since she had a litter before ending up in a shelter.    She’s also been in doggy jail a couple times for vagrancy, hunting without a license and public nuisance, so she could be devising ways to game the system.   I try not to judge her lifestyle.

 

the second was taken last October, her look shows her displeasure with a cold, wet, squirrel free boat.

To console himself, he lives in a tent/van on the beach and posts pictures of women he claims to have banged.

My first ever earning from Facebook came today.

They removed my post because “it was spam.”

They wrote “Due to Covid we cannot review every protest.”  I couldn’t  even offer an explanation .

 

 

 

One of our local junior sailor’s Mom posted about the fact he is  going to MIT in the  fall.

So I posted the following:

Time to start practicing so you can make the MIT sailing team this fall. I found a boat for you in New York

I quit fukbook about 5 years ago. Never tweeted, snap'd or insta anything.

This is a close as I get to social media and so far, I don't seem to really give a sit what someone thinks about what I should be doing.

I scan the news headlines from ALL media sources and keep coming back to the same conclusion.

They wants us at each other's throats so we don't notice them stuffing their hands deeper in our pockets while bending us over further every year.
