Zuckerburg the book burner, the Goebbels - like minster of the propaganda of the Fascist Left, the self appointed controller of how you are to think - may his judgement be swift.

Never was on Facebook, never will be.

Same here. I've also have instructed my nephews I'm raising not to do such as well. Facebook was started with CIA money...much like Google.

I have and ashamed. It seemed the easy way to connect with.... Anyway, I'm out shortly. This thing was always a data mining operation. I knew it was a sham but... ... weakness exposed I suspect.

Re: #DeleteFacebook

I never had an account, but my wife opened one while our son was stationed in northern Japan. It turned out to be very valuable to us when the tsunami took out the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. We had no way of knowing if our son was injured, or worse, other than calling Red Cross which was about as vague as the weekend weatherman. It was a stressful two days before we got a Facebook message from him.

Don't have any now, but also thankful for the profits made when I did buy and sell their stock.

Re: #DeleteFacebook

Here's a tip...

When my Martha Stuart stock was going nowhere I sold all of it. I started buying Facebook when it was only a 30 dollar stock and projected to sell when it hits $50. But FB kept on going up so I continued to buy more and more. I was hoping for the big split to actually buy as much as I can (ready to put in 50 Gs if it splits 4 or 5 ways).

Right now at $159, should I sell? or buy some more since my projected future price of FB is at least $300. The reason I held on to it is because it became a gigantic global information network. Its not only used in US, but billions of people in China, North/South Americas, Europe and also in less developed and developing countries.
This (US Only not global) issue about FB influencing people to vote Trump is the same as the news stating wives voted for Trump because they were forced by husbands. FB is a social media tool used for an individual to see and to be seen, speak to be heard and to learn. So, if one wants privacy then put all your pictures in a floppy disc, write all your ideas in a note book, and stay inside your cave.

At this time, there is really no replacement for FB on what it does, at least for the next 5 years or even more in my opinion. If you know another product that is similar to FB and can generate stronger gains, let me know. I'm ready to make some more money!
