I joined Facebook about 8 years ago when my niece was posted to Afghanistan. I do go in a have a quick look most days and can keep in touch with my girls via Messenger although we use WhatsApp also to keep in touch. It is handy to have though I'm very security conscious and I have ad blockers and am wary of what I click on.

It is like a lot of things. When used correctly it can be a good thing but there have been things like kids bullying one another and trolling. There are also those who just like to stir the s*** with their comments so I would steer clear of those kinds of topics.

I'm not into the "how many friends have I got or he/she got" I get a lot of the jokes I post on here from Facebook. I'm also not into checking people's timelines.

I appreciate that thousands of people use it,to keep in touch with friends and relatives. But it totally encourages the trivial and the banal.Not to mention nosey Parker’s!

Yes i am on Facebook. Not a heavy user but I do have a look in most days. Just scroll past things that dont interest me - people posting inspriational memes and such

I post something myself, on average, once every week or so.

Like everything, use it if you want and how you want - or dont.

I dont get that anti facebook angst.:unsure:

I'm on facebook every day. It is how I keep in touch with family members that live all over the country and I haven't seen in years. It is almost like a family reunion every day of the year.
