Just a poll to see how much impact facebook has with the GT Population. Anonymous for sure.
What, exactly, is your question? HH
My wife has the book face thing and I occasionally scroll it.
I don't exactly use Facebook. I sort of have a presence there.
I can understand the utility of keeping track of friends and acquaintances but I never could get into the overwhelming attraction people have for it.
On the other hand, we were talking about building plastic models not too long ago. I've heard about a facebook group that specializes in an item I'm thinking about building. I may join for that reason - but probably not until I'm seriously ready to start.
I don't know how people function on a day to day basis while actively seeking more noise to inject into their affairs. A lot of that stuff shows up on it's own as is. Why take on more?
GT is my facebook. tom.
I am too much of a private person to ever get into FB.
Full disclosure; wife made an account for me. I look at it once a year when people whom I don't even know/remember wish me a happy birthday and I thank them. So I voted no.
I check it every single day.
Your privacy and interaction depends upon you.
I use it because I join groups on topics that interest me. I ride Harley's, the west cost style ones, so I join groups that review the latest and greatest parts coming out, cams, suspension so on.
Just built a new 300 blackout pistol, guess what, joined a 300 blackout group.
I'm a conservative, joined political page, Love and own Rottweilers, yep on those pages too. Jeep Wrangler owner, yep.
It's like being a member of forums of each of those topics, but all on one page.
Each time my finger scrolls, it's a topic I enjoy.
I could care less about what my neighbor had for dinner, or a grade school friend retired, I filter that stuff out in my settings. I have minimal friends comparatively to most people, but I absolutely enjoy use of the site.
With over a billion users, the data and information on some topics is vast, that's valuable to me when starting a new hobby or project.
I wouldn't use the word impact.
I posted a question last year asking if family reunions were no longer a thing...many replied FB is now the family reunion. I log on daily for less than 3 minutes to check on family posts.
I've also used it to announce the death of pets and wish my wife a happy 20th anniversary this past week. It reaches a good cross section of the family.
Some friends send me messages on it. I've asked time and time again to just text me.
I mainly use it as a source of propaganda being spread by liberal outlets.
Know your enemy.
I’ve been a member since almost the beginning. Honestly, I prefer the variety offered up versus forums like this where you have to bounce around to get the different information. Unfortunately, the upcoming election and covid ruined the experience for me. I decided to not use it anymore. I do still have an account and I’ll look for specific things there sometimes but I no longer have the app on my phone and I no longer just browse and read it. Too much divisiveness. And if you want to know the truth, I think the “Internet” will be the ultimate demise of us. Our brains weren’t made to absorb this much so quickly.
Nope, my sisters are all about it and live on it. I get in enough trouble here with the mods. I don't want that Zuckerberg kid sending out his goons after me.
Yet you’re here. It is exactly the same, just a different format. If you believe otherwise, you’ve been misinformed.
I answered yes, because I still have a Facebook messenger app for video chat purposes. However, I've deactivated the main account.
Never have and never will.

Yes. I use it to see what the dive boats around me have going on and the conditions they are seeing. I also in a fan group for the baseball team I follow.
i use fartbook, to keep up with announcements of
1) my range
2) a gun store
3) a survival store,
all 3 places in which i need updates on sales, and such.
other than that, i could care less about someone's dog chasing a cat around the pool.
Unless one has a "socio-politically approved" business or enterprise, I see no need for FB.
In these days, one has the right not to feel offended and no right to offend.
