I quit facebook months ago in part because of data harvesting and ongoing Facebook apologies about data theft....while Facebook continues to make billions. Even worse is the huge amount of uncontrolled, misleading, false, disinformation that is posted daily...which is the primary reason I deleted my account. It sickens me that people, young people particularly, believe what they read on facebook is factual.

I do not have a twitter account for similar reasons.

I do not miss facebook at all. I have discovered that it is entirely possible to communicate without facebook.

Of course data harvesting is not limited to facebook. Others are guilty too. I shopped online for a set of new tires about 6 months ago comparing various brands. Now, I still receive pop up ads on my browser marketing tires.

I've never had an account with facebook and I never will. Nor have I ever been on twitter. The only form of social media I have ever been a part of, and currently am is Untappd, a phone app to check in and keep track of different beers I've had...…….

Twitter is a cesspool that I refuse to tread in. [-X

That's saying a lot from a guy living in Vegas. :whistle:
