New facebook
#1
Yeah I know. Its even shitter than 'classic' facebook but I'm sick of keep changing it back every 48 hours.

Does anyone know how their idea of 'most recent' posts is supposed to work... cos even if its slightly better than 'Top Stories' (whatever the fuck that is) its still not in chronological, most recent order


All I want, is to see the posts on my timeline, in order with the most recent first.  It can't be that complicated.

I have to use Facebook extensively for my work (it's a long story, don't ask!) & I haven't got a fucking clue what's going on with the new design,

So...no, can't help, LOL

Trust me.
If all my friends didn't use it and I wasn't a nosey bastard I'd delete it like a shot.

I fuckin hated it before the redesign. Now its even worse.

Yeah, this is gone to complete and utter shit. Try to use it for "everything" so have family, friends, acquaintances and the like all on it, and it was working fine.

Now, I'm ONLY seeing posts from the same 4-5 people all the time, and even when I refresh or change the feed or whatever, just older posts from those same people. Oh, and the sponsored content. So. Much. Bollox.

Back in March I signed on to FB for the first time, only because a guy I met (professionally) is also a standup comedian as a hobby and he sent me a link on FB for a skit that he did.
I haven't signed on since.

We can now add Mark Zuckerberg to the Evil Troika here in the U.S. (Trump, McConnell, Barr + Zuckerberg).

The world needs to dump FB and Zuckerberg with it.  Now is the time. Approve

Most of my friends are local and I like to meet with them in person (pre-pandemic).
(Yes, I grew up in an earlier time. KK)
Others I chat with on Zoom.
(I won't get started on the beauty and art of letter writing, which admittedly I've replaced with emails.)
What do I need FB for (just another time waster)?

I love it personally. I've said this on the old board but it's all about what YOU make it. I have friends and family all over the world and I love seeing photos and updates of their lives and what they get up to, everyone has such different lives and as a bit of a people watcher I find it fascinating. I'm obviously not going to phone them all up for a chat every week!

I find the people that hate it and get rid of it tend to have loads of old school friends they don't know anymore and like random pages which post garbage every day, even have friends they've never met.

Cultivate your feed. If you don't want to unfriend someone just mute them. Keep it to a few select people you actually like and it works perfectly well.

I read that FB users have a higher degree of depression because they see everybody else's lives are so much more chirpy and happy than their own.  Of course, people will post photos from happy days.

I don't find that personally. Far from it, if anything the opposite, most have kids! It's all about your perspective though. A friend of mine had depression, ditched all his social accounts and said it was the worst thing he did as he completely cut himself off from everyone.

People take and post photos of happy occasions yes, your point is? No different to pre internet and someone getting out a photo album of their latest holiday or a fun night out, people don't take photos at funerals.

I think I'm done with it tbh...

People have been moaning about all the ads spamming your timeline for a while, but apart from the odd one a day... I seem to have been immune.

Until today on the 'new' facebook... every other post is an ad.

Utter shite.

Completely agree with that. Also, colleagues from teams or places you used to work. Unless you were bessie mates with them, it can become tedious after a while, especially if their interests are...niche. Or they’re into fake news...

It can also work the other way, too. Just because someone has invited you into their group, it doesn’t give you unlimited rights to post on their timeline, join their conversations etc.

The last year or two has really done it for me. First we had Brexit, and now it’s all about Covid. Just because these are major issues in the news media doesn’t mean I want to read non-stop about them on social media too. Or read posts related to them.

But ultimately, I decided to delete my Facebook for an entirely different reason. It’s a huge, massive (data) security risk. I know you can modify what’s visible, and public, but people can piece together information about you, based on what and when you’ve posted. And there've been numerous scare stories about people’s bank accounts or identities being hacked through data harvested from Facebook.

I am (or maybe used to be) a public person, I don’t keep secrets about myself, not amongst people I know anyway. But I don’t particularly wish to keep an online data trail, either. I’m proud of the fact I can’t be Googled, despite having a fairly common name. Certainly don’t want people who don’t know me finding out who I am, and where I live.

Plus FB sells your data.  Wink

Whether it’s sold or not, the fact remains your data is harvested. My folks got a scam e-Mail last week, alleging their car tax was overdue (it wasn’t). They don’t use Facebook. But someone, somehow had harvested their data, and tried to use to rattle them (luckily they’re not easily rattled, and I’ve got their back).

I refuse to give people my phone number unless I know them (even at work, even to customers). My privacy is important, and so is how my data is used. It bothers me come election time, and you get flyers from parties you wouldn’t even dream of voting for. They may have a right to send you a mail shot, but the principle’s the same.
