Get out while you can.

This is the best advice. Also getting something like NoScript to keep them from tracking you and building a shadow profile of you while you browse other parts of the internet. But unfortunately, if your friends have their contacts synced with Facebook, they'll still have access to your name and phone number, and of course, whatever else that user shares with them. I can't fathom how that's legal but...

Well, I tried using NoScript, but the site is being rendered absolutely unusable. You need to (temporarily) whitelist both facebook.com and akamaihd.com

So yeah, get out indeed.

FB user demographics are already skewing towards older people. Teens and 20's are already moving on.

Well, I guess I haven't got much tying me there anymore. Why not?

Anyone got a good alternative? Aside from +

Unfortunately, almost every person I know uses facebook and seems unwilling to move elsewhere.

What would be considered elsewhere? What are the alternatives?

I hate that people won't stop using it. Any idea of a good alternative that I can try to get my friends to jump to? I hate it, but it is somewhat useful for organizing events and reaching out to people you otherwise wouldn't be able to (like if you don't have their phone number or email).

All Americans I know use Facebook Messanger as main texting app. All Europeans use WhatsApp which now belongs to Facebook. WhatsApp also failed the EFF check.

It's kind of important still.

Yet another nice safe space. I guess the third world war is truly a war of ideology .

Should we start posting pictures of fat people to Facebook?

Great to see this getting voats. Real names policy has also been academically proven to reduce diversity of opinion and truthfulness, in addition to natural affinity tendencies that already make FB an echo chamber.

noscript / ghostery / never log into FB with your regular browser or better yet delete profile. May need to ask for hard delete to avoid FB keeping it.

If you do all that, they'll only have a ghost profile left for you - which they can tell is you based on all your friends using FB. Belgium is currently suing over this, albeit somewhat indirectly.

I would rather you keep your opinions to yourself on facebook. I'm here for the baby pictures, party invites, and birthday reminders.

Probably one of very few. I would love to have an alternative. A proper alternative.

I'm glad I got off Facebook a few years ago when I did. I'd dial in my privacy settings how I liked, and then they'd come out with "Oh, we've rolled out even more privacy settings" and change my settings all the way back to wide open. If it was a one time thing, I wouldn't have minded, but they did it 3 times, and I said to hell with this place.

Ex girlfriends coming out of the woodwork is no fun. :(
