great!

Tell me how I can "unfollow" Real Estate For Sale, Happify, Scoot Networks, Groupon, and some guy named CBS News. I don't remember ever "friending" these people, and they keep popping up everywhere!

They're annoying!!!
Adblock+ for starters, and uh, yeah, you might have "Liked" either pages of those things, or else you're seeing things from friends.

Facebook is pretty harmless, just don't like that sometimes you never see stuff from people, that you'd like to know about, and end up seeing 20 times how the someone's dog peed on the couch of someone's couch.
That's why I chose to stop autoplay for vids. You can change that in your settings. P.S. Btw, who would like to share that? Even record it?

Plus you go to the little arrow on the right of the ad and click "I don't want to see ads like this" and poof they're gone

But in all seriousness I've hidden so many people on FB I might as well leave lol I love when you leave the country and your phone is rendered useless and WiFi is shotty. It's so relaxing to be disconnected

Yeah, there is a little box where you have to go to each ad and hide it I guess, to not see it again in your feed. I think people have complained that they have to hide a half dozen adds everytime they go to facebook. I agree, if you don't like how social media works, don't do it, or customize it so it minimizes grievances.

I looked at the people I've hidden, and thought, Ohhhh, that's why I haven't heard from them, I thought they just quit facebook. :lol:

If I stop autoplay for videos then I wouldn't instantly see the baby elephant doing somersaults in the bath and then falling out with 'i'm in love with the coco' playing in the background...... :bday:

But I think I will, that was too much.....


I'm not surprised that there was a video of the birth, they are from Eugene, the scrappy little cousin of Berkeley. It's where white kids are named Ganesha and Deepraj and Saguna and going to the fair means donning fairy costumes and face paint for children and romping around the woods with a bunch of naked hairy people and birthing parties are normal, where you invite your friends over to your house, cover your bed in a plastic sheet, give birth then have a potluck afterwards with your friends.

Just putting it on instant video was the weird part.......

I just checked the page of a "friend" I unfollowed and see that she is still posting the same shit. Her husband left her about 2 years ago or so. It doesn't appear that she's over it yet..

I don't know why people post shit like that, it's not like the guilty person (or not guilty) is going to read it. It's like me and my aunts with their "Sweet Jesus!" posts. I had to unfollow them too :lol:

My view is: I don't care what you post on Facebook unless it's something about or involving me. A lot of perfectly ordinary people have batshit nonsense fluttering around inside their cobweb-infested skulls, and just like chain letters used to be, if they find an outlet, and have nothing else interesting in their lives, they'll let that shit out... And I get why you could use it as entertainment or get really annoyed by it, but I think that's the thing that's great about Facebook: it's possible to use it in a way that suits you.

this facebook post amused me today.

All over the world, waters are turning red. From Ohio to Canada to Antartica. On April 28th of this year, Brazil beaches are blood red. Why? Well Revelation 16:4 says, The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. This is a sign that we are in End Time. Please pray people!!!

I have no friends or family like that freaky religious perspective. I guess I am lucky......

I wouldn't be able to stand seeing that more than once.


The most extreme thing I see is how Obama is destroying the environment with his policies, we need to follow Bernie Sanders, and the pharm companies are out of control. I guess I agree with most of that, but it's annoying seeing that post after post from people.
