I'm glad we have our favorite social media site, THT, to discuss this disturbing problem. What's the world to do now? (insert sarcasm font here)

I must be a dinosaur, never had a Fakebook account. Just don’t care to tell the whole world what I had for lunch, what my dog is doing, and I don’t have any cats.

I don’t get it. Why is it so hilarious that a website is down? Websites go down all the time. Not once have I ever laughed out loud when it happened.

Well, quite different, IMO. First, I'm much more confident that THT isn't mining and distributing my personal information to the extent that FB did. Partly because they don't have the same kind of access to my personal information that FB had.

I pulled the plug on FB about 3 months ago because they admitted to allowing access to PM's and friends lists without consent. And that was just the last straw for me. And that was after they admitted to allowing app developers access to uploaded but unpublished photos. They also collected phone call records and text messages through the mobile app. That's just way too far into my personal life without my consent.

Now I expect that I'll sacrifice some privacy on any social media platform, including THT, and I don't have a problem with targeted advertising based on searches or posts. But FB has gone way beyond a reasonable and appropriate boundary in data collection - possibly into illegal activities.

I'm disappointed because it really is a great platform to keep up with friends and family and I honestly miss it. But f*ck them and their intrusion into my personal information.

This is a discussion forum based around a common subject (well, doesn't exactly apply to dockside but you know what I mean).

Facebook is for people to post how awesome their lives are with the expressed purpose of making them jealous and appearing to be "living their best life"

True, forums are technically social media but they don't compare to Facegram or Instabook or Twitface.

No, I disagree, the content isn't very different at all. Particularly if you consider the bilge, THT much more immature, childish and self aggrandizing than anything I ever witnessed on FB.

Nonsense. since the Advent of Facebook groups most forums are useless. I almost never see a post on Facebook from anyone I actually know. It's almost all groups members.

Facebook has changed a lot in the last few years. Most adults aren't posting pictures of their lunch or random status updates anymore. Plus I love memes .

not to mention you can control what you do and don't see, for the most part. At least when it comes to people posting their "look! my baby is holding a toy! isn't she the best?!" pics, those can all be filtered out. If you don't like what you're seeing on FB, you're doing it wrong.
