It lets you know who dies that u know.
It also let's you know who is catching fish on Lake Erie today, Sunday March 11.
No fakebook for me.
Anyone watch C-SPAN, or whichever channel it is that shows what's going on in the U.S. House Chamber and / or the Senate Chamber? I'd bet it's mostly crap on that channel too.
So get up get, get get down...
It’s what you make it, I don’t follow anyone who continuously shares garbage news or memes.

I found out about the shooting and manhunt at my old stomping grounds this past weekend from it. A girl I knew quite well in HS had a stepson shoot her husband and 15 yr old boy. I did not know at first where or who it was. My mom lives right in the area and I have a problem brother. When I heard about roads closed and a helicopter I had to to call her to see if she was alright. She had no idea this was going on just 5 miles from her house. Only place I heard there was news about it was channel 9&10.
Sometimes of us old folks need connections to hear what is going on.
I've never been on fake book. To many people would send me me garbage emails and sprea fake stories, all started on fake book.
Besides, when I need the news, I go to CNN.
I started out with facebook friending relatives and old friends. Then I started getting sick of posts about natural living, vaccines, and recipes. I started unfriending anybody who's posts I was getting sick of.
Now when I log on my news feed is just one fishing group and anything I post, which is nothing since I don't have any friends on facebook.
Now when I need a good chuckle, I head over to CNN.
I admit to using FaceBook............it certainly can be filled with crap for sure but it's all about what you like and don't like. Anyone who craps on me for what I believe in just gets unfollowed and I never see their crap again.
I belong to a number of very helpful groups that share the same interests that I do. For instance, I am learning to use a flash off camera for portraits and such. I glean so much information from the near 60K members that it makes my head spin. Again, if it doesn't interest me, I scroll on by. This is a resource I would NEVER had access to any other way.
I follow a couple camping pages where we discuss gear and destinations............also, cast iron groups that share recipes and such.
I have immediate family members I don't follow anymore but I can still post photos and information to their FB page.
The internet can be a great tool if used for that purpose. Oh, and I have posted photos of my fish cooked in my cast iron ;-)
Yeah, It's strange that people cannot just talk to each other on the phone or in person, they gotta get all roughed up over a post on an internet site that is probably taken out of context......wait, I am not implying anything about anyone or anything on this website, LOL!!!
Seriously though, I wouldn't disown a family member or friend over some untrue meme or story they posted or might believe, even unnecessary drama. But I hate to see it happening.
I do the same with my nieces and nephews. Plus quite a few of the people I worked with for over 30 years use it. They are spread all over the country and its an easy way to stay in touch and two of the bases I was stationed on during my time in the service have groups on it and I've re-connected with a couple friends. I also re-united with several people I went to high school with and haven't seen since those days. Two of them were girls I dated and it was great getting in touch with them again. I just block all the politics and weird stuff. Get enough of that here. lol
Kinda sounds like the old guys talking about TV when I was a kid!
I found a real good use for Facebook, that doesn't involve any sort of personal drama, news, or actual pertinent (fake or not) information!
Found an old high school friend's sister after coming up blank on a search for an old friend. I contacted her to see if she could get me in touch with her brother, who was my old friend. This is what it should be used for, and for that I can support it! Be pretty cool if I can connect with him, been almost 30 years since I last talked to him.....
The guys that don't do Facebook spend their time on the Political Forums on Michigan Sportsman and figure that's completely normal.
