I am on it so I can see what the children and grandhildren are up to. I find it very confusing though.
If the kids go somewhere else we'll only follow them and keep on 'spying'.

Nope, I have an FB account to use when I need advice from a local community group regarding tradesmen, etc. But that is it. Don't use Instagram and am not sure what that is about. I am not into social media much at all.

I too am a fan of facebook. Not all of us live 5 minutes from family and its a good way to keep in touch. I get photos almost daily. Web cam via messenger for live events like Granddaughters dress up day....Look Grandma :)
Thanks to fb I found a breeder for the purebreed hens I wanted, join groups for hobbies, keep in touch with family in other countries on the other side of the world.

Its what you make it, imho

I'm a fan and I go to it several times a day, Also, my current lady friend and I were high school classmates, but had not had any contact for over 50 years. Even though we were living about 5,000 miles apart we reconnected via FB, and are now in a relationship.

Sure, some folks abuse it but that's why there are unfollow and block options/

As a side note, it is amusing that some folks us this site (social media) to complain about social media.

We often get these FaceBook threads running and it seems a love/hate issue :D.

Many of my generation have turned to FB to keep intouch with family and friends, and even discover ‘old’ friends...all very exciting .....

I can’t say I’m a fan (or not) as I’ve never been on it lol. I do think, generally, and only from what I’ve heard, that many people put far too much info on there and sometimes that just isn’t a good thing ... but I’m no expert....

If it makes one feel closer to family/friends and fills a need when families are so spread out these days, then it’s a great tool....personally, I’m living fine without it :)

We were asked if we are a fan of Facebook, Facebook is just one aspect of social media.....there is social media and social media.

I don't have a smart phone....but that doesn't mean I dislike or don't have a mobile phone.:unsure:
