    Never been on it. I thought it was the stupidest concept ever and still do. I could care less what others are doing.

    Facebook has lost value to me. Use it now only because certain organizations I belong to (i.e. my ski school) use it to post announcements. From a personal perspective it's not adding much, but sucked a lot of time. Might check it once a week. Usually I'm alerted to an important post through Snapchat. BTW, (challenging stereotypes), I'm old, 45+.

    I toyed around with Facebook early on and then my wife did the same, however, she really got into it as if it was the actual news. She checks it religiously where I checked it from time to time. The problem is if you are away from it for days the you miss a lot but that really does not seem to matter. There are also a lot of people who vent which is a turn off. Then again that happens here too. And politics are a PITA on FB. AZ is my primary social media of sorts and FB fills a void when there is nothing here but it is not really my thing but more my wife's.

    FB is really good at this point for keeping in touch with family and some friends, along with a few groups I am in. I am also using it to begin to mount a campaign to run for public office, which is actually pretty decent platform to get the word out slowly. I still check it daily, but I don't post nearly as much as I use to back in the day...

    At this point, dropping FB would be an inconvenience. It's the platform of choice for planning events between all of my family and friends. Actually, more so my wife's family and friends than my own and she doesn't have an account. So, I'm kind of stuck with it.

    I do actually enjoy it as a platform for ski stoke. Most ski areas I frequent make a post or two per day with good pictures or short videos of what's going on up at the mountain. Gets me pumped up for when I'm skiing there next.

    I thoroughly enjoy FB. Watching people from high school get fat and family members ruin their lives and share it all on social media are pastimes of mine.


    Not to mention the year and a half long mini AZ group chat that has been going on.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    It is interesting how many people post their woes!

    I don't have cable or satellite TV so this is my source of "premium channel reality TV".
