Why do you hate it? I love stalking old friends on FB, but I'm guilty for never ever posting a word/picture there. Never. I use it for private messaging all the time but obviously the only people that know are the ones I message .

I always thought it is ridiculous to post your dinner or duckface or picture with a dude on FB or whatever other s*it people post but since I'm not doing it and I'm pretty good at extracting relevant information, the rest is ... background.

Yeah, staying away from FB is really refreshing! Although I can't deactivate mine because I have important school stuff posted there that I need to check on, I restricted my FB use by deleting the app on my phone. I'm not tempted to check FB any more than once or twice a day. When I'm on it, it's usually just to check important notifications. I swear, I never find myself scrolling down a bunch of crap I could care less about for more than a minute or two. I just can't stand being on FB for too long because there's too much oversharing, drama, and headache-inducing political posts.

I hate facebook because of the trending news and people comments

Most of them are nasty and cruel.

But no, I didn't remove it yet.


I removed Instagram which was my favorite until it turned too political for me.

I think that people will stay in contact with those folks they really want to have contact with, it doesn't have to be Facebook. Like, when I graduated from high school, all my classmates were up in tears ("we will never see each other again like this"), while I didn't really care; I'd stay in contact with those people I actually liked, the rest were just acquaintances.

The little funny thing about FB -for me- is how bad it is at advertising towards me. They seem merely to show ads my FB friends might like. Big data, you know

I'll admit to spending more time on FB than is good for me.

However I don't think I'll ever deactivate as I have a lot of friends overseas and who move around a lot, and FB is by far the best way of keeping in contact with them. With Messenger I can message or call anyone I've added without needing their phone number, and it's easy to get to friends of friends. It is also a lot easier to set up events on FB than to try and message 10, 15 people (but perhaps that's just anxiety).

I do agree that there is an element of toxicity in the way it is used by most people, and I can see why people delete it. I just try my best to use it in the way that was intended - to connect with others, and I feel it would be more difficult if I removed FB as an avenue to do so. Sure there are people I have as "friends" who I haven't spoken to for a while, but sometimes you never know when they'll pop up in your life again... it has happened with a few people I know!

Facebook vs. Instagram

Do you think that one is worse than the other or both just as bad in terms of ruining relationships and making people feel bad / compare themselves to others?

Both is equally bad. If you are promoting your business or doing things that elevate you to your higher being all is well.

However people use these platforms for their EGO purposes only...
