I don't use any of those, except email of course. I'm certainly not going to skype with with 30 friends, but if one of them posts some great photos of a kayak trip on FB, I can indicate that I like them, or leave a comment that those 30 friends will see. It's a good way to keep in touch without a lot of effort. A friend I worked with 25 yrs ago has survived two hurricanes recently on St Thomas in the Caribbean. He posts one short message and all his FB friends know he survived and his roof is intact. This is a good thing. Yes there is a lot of trash, but you can turn much of it off and it's easy to focus on the stuff that interests you. (of course some people seem to be mostly interested in the trash, but a couple of mouse clicks and I'll never see their posts again.)

Good point. If PPRuNe is representative of the fecesbook, maybe I should join up with them.

nah...

If you like your fecesbook, you can keep your fecesbook.

OK... Now here's a good example of the vulgarity that's common in social media. I'm not interested in this, or reading anything else from someone who would post that sort of trash. Here's how I'm going to make that happen. From the PPRuNe faq:

Can I block posts, emails and messages from specific users?

If there are particular members that bother you and you do not want to see their posts or receive Private Messages and Emails from them, then you can add these members to your 'Ignore List'. There are several ways to do this:

Through your User Control Panel: User CP, Settings & Options, Edit Ignore List. Then, type their name into the empty text box and click 'Okay'.
Bye Bye ethicalconundrum!

Fecesbook...
About a year ago a local elderly woman posted on fecesbook that she finally saved enough money to pay off her house mortgage, and would be going to the bank next day to do so . Guess what??? Someone read her post, broke into her house that night, stole her money and murdered her.
I don't feel sorry for her. She died because she was stupid. She put personal info on fecesbook where the whole world could see it!
If you wanna share personal info, do so with trusted family and friends via email or phone call. If you put personal info on social media then get robbed, raped, murdered, screwed over, then no sympathy from me!!!

Bye Bye ethicalconundrum!
Excellent choice. I would commend you, but, of course...

I have to say Jet Blast is nothing if not educational. I have learned that the US spelling of faeces is feces - and here was me thinking that ethicalconundrum simply couldn't spell!

Mueller obtains warrant for Russia linked Facebook ads and accounts - Business Insider


"Robert Mueller, the FBI special counsel, reportedly obtained a search warrant for records of the "inauthentic" accounts Facebook shut down earlier this month and the targeted ads these accounts purchased during the 2016 election."

Manufacturing a coup d'etat?
