  1. That’s why I don’t use Facebook

    • keesha b you’re literally airing your opinions on YouTube and acting like you’re superior because you’re not on Facebook. 😂

    • @Dench2020 Rather unfair to target only one person in this thread. I too said i did not subscribe to Facebook. Take care and keep safe. 🙂

    • If you use Instagram then you still do. They’re too ubiquitous now.

    • @keesha b 👍🏻 I’ve never used FB. I prefer to communicate with my family and friends and hear their voices it’s amazing how much more gratifying it is. I actually still send hand written BD and Christmas cards WOW 🤩 what an awesome concept.

    • It is no longer fun or interesting in any way. So many advertisements I can’t see the posts from friends. It just is outdated and someone should come up with another idea!

  2. Boycott Facebook.

    • Agreed, now we just have to get a decent percentage of the 2.2 billion users to join in the boycott which be a few hundred million? Unless you start a Facebook group called boycott Facebook and do sponsored ads on Facebook I doubt you’ll get enough people to make it even barely effective.

      Unfortunately governmental oversight or people coming to their senses (both wildly unlikely) are just two of the very few options left to us.

    • Also, tops username btw.

    • Since I found out Nick Cleg has moved his two faces to Facebook, I removed myself.

    • Boycott most businesses and CEOs they voted for trump and caused all this chaos
      We KNOW who those businesses are
      Papa johns

  3. That’s why I didged my F.B. account some two years ago. Zuckerberg is just as greedy as Trump. He, just like Trump, has no conscience, no empathy and no ability to self reflection.

    • I think zuckerberg is more greedy and more power hungry than trump.

    • @Johnny one I bet every American would happily give away their $400k salary, in return for the $140 MILLION that Trump has taken in its place. He’s not lost a billion, his business has earned more in 3 years He’s been president, than the 10 before it.

    • @Dave Ponsford Steve Mathison well I am going off Google and Google is owned by that Nazi George Soros that’s so involved with the Democrat Party.

    • @Johnny one Soros owns the Internet, every device to access the Internet and everything people have. You’ll have to go to Russia or North Korea to avoid him. Its pathetically hilarious how you think that a deranged delusional comment means something because you put Soros.

    • @Dave Ponsford Soros worked with the Nazis turning in his own people and has publicly stated his life’s mission is to destroy America. That includes you dummy!PS no one owns the internet it’s impossible stupid.

  4. Facebook must be regulated!

    • I agree. But then what do you do with the supreme tenants of America economics? Like capitalism, consumerism, and free market trade?

    • Itz An Opinion | September 6, 2020 at 9:52 PM | Reply

      What makes FB any different than this very platform you’re using now? Should this also be ‘regulated’…

      Personally..if you don’t like the “policies” of a given platform, whether it’s Facebook/InstaGram/Snapchat/Youtube…DON’T USE IT!

    • @Itz An Opinion Yours is the dumbest comment in history. Seriously.

  5. James Rothschild | September 6, 2020 at 7:35 PM | Reply

    Never had a Facebook account. Didn’t want people I didn’t want to deal with having easy access to find, then be able to annoy me. If we were real friends, you already had my direct information to contact me.

  6. I killed off my FB account in 2016 and have never missed it.

  7. Kristin Bradshaw | September 6, 2020 at 7:46 PM | Reply

    It’s the worse part of the internet. So much disinformation and hate.

  8. Carmen Di Mase | September 6, 2020 at 7:46 PM | Reply

    No way. __ needs to be regulated. Way too much power over our democracy.

  9. Spreading lies, hate, disinformation and conspiracy theories, you just described Trump.

    • Dr. Deplorable | September 8, 2020 at 1:19 AM | Reply

      Did you forget about the Trump peepee tapes?! gtfo! The left has lost all credibility…

    • *_Trump is highly skilled at the art of the con.  “Con” is short for confidence, and it is based on gaining confidence or trust from the potential victim.  The skilled con is an expert at “baiting” the rube . . . telling the target what he wants to hear as the “bait”, inspiring trust or confidence.  Trump is truly a dedicated master baiter, spending a great deal of time each day master baiting his base._*

    • @John Edward Trump thinks a sycophant is an elephant that is under the weather. If you take a couple of long underwear union suits and put ’em in a big clothes dryer down at the laundromat, he’ll think he’s watching wrestling on TV. _And after he found out vegetarians eat vegetables, he won’t go near a humanitarian._

    • Dr. Deplorable | September 9, 2020 at 4:30 AM | Reply

      @jones Sorry that your candidate cant master bait his base, he is only interested in sniffing preteen girls’ hair…

    • @Dr. Deplorable So nice of you to care. Sorry you and your deranged orange balloon animal god are at the bottom of the morality food chain and have rejected democracy, compassion, honesty and decency in favor of hatred, betrayal, treason, racism and a ludicrous and futile attempt to turn the USA into North Korea and sell us out to Putin. How has it worked out for prior enemies of the USA? Good luck, fuckwit.

  10. Why does anyone bother with Facebook? It was intended as a gossip forum for college students. Unimportant. F Facebook.

  11. Just another sociopath with too much money… and absolutely unethical!

  12. I’m old school. I prefer to pick up the phone and call someone instead. I never liked Facebook and I have no use for the service.

    • Itz An Opinion | September 6, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      Umm…guess what? The same marketing strategies used by Facebook….are also used by Google/Youtube….And if you’re old school, why are you using THIS PARTICULAR SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM CALLED ‘YOUTUBE’ to drop a comment? WHy not just pick up the phone and call someone to let them know how you feel? goes both ways..but the uneducated/uninformed are just that….

    • @Itz An Opinion YouTube better

    • @Itz An Opinion awh the boomer feels attacked

    I quit FB years ago and haven’t looked back.

  14. This is why Facebook needs to be regulated a lot more heavily.

      S҉H҉O҉W҉F҉ D҉Z҉ not sure what nuttiness you’re on about. I like the quote which made me fancy reading some Voltaire. Do you have an issue with that?

    • @frances simmonds The gun toting nut jobs, trying to show us how America will not be safe under Joe??? bwahahahaha I don’t know where these fools been for the last 30yrs, but it’s obvious now–Not in reality!!! They’ve been killing folks for years–now the Gun is being turned on them!!!

  16. Just quit FaceWaste. It’s not hard. Social media kills your life! 4 years clean and never going back lol

    • I find that excessive use of social media also rubs off on me, and it made me an extremely toxic person, so I quit Roblox, video games, excess use of discord, and more. It really helped, and I would only ever use social media to advertise my business.

    • Too many Trump haters anyways…

    • Dorothea Massey | September 7, 2020 at 9:17 PM | Reply

      Well if it is the hater brought the hatred that people have for him on himself. He create a hostile environment in our Country . He is not worthy of anyone liking him or even respecting him . This man is evil and toxic he has killed that in so many words . Look how his ruined the constitution and the rule of law with his lap dogs . He is full of hatred and destroys everything he touches . Truthfully I despise this racist orange face .

    • @Renate Rädler I love whatsapp for the last 9 years – before Zuckerface bought it. I barely use facebook. Not even sure how they make any money off me.

    • not_a_bug_but_a_feature | September 11, 2020 at 2:35 PM | Reply

      @Pepe the Frog ..good on you. That’s what im gonna do. Use it only for biz adverts not personal. Zuckerberg is a freaky robot reptilian anyway. such a weirdo.

  17. Zuckerberg’s going to learn why it’s not a good idea to have that many people disconnected from reality. I wonder if he’ll even care when entire countries are on fire.

  18. I am exhausted from all the lies and cheating at the expense of human lives.

  19. Facebook, “Falsebook”, needs to be regulated. Worldwide It does more harm than good.

      In the UK there is a limit on political advertising yet people reported getting specific targetted adverts during Brexit. The adverts targetted vulnerable people with lies telling them Turkey was about to get full entry to the EU and millions of Turks would move to the UK taking jobs and changing the cultural landscape. This was all lies but Facebook refused to give details on how many adverts went out and who places them etc. It is believed it was Putin as Russia benefits from the E.U. being weaker.
      This is, of course, happening in the USA also. Targetted false adverts that do not need to meet advertising standards and there is no record of them afterwards. People see them in their feed and then they disappear from the site. Unless you photograph them no one ever knows about them and definitely not how many there were.

    • I’ve deactivated my account 🤚. I only use Messenger now.

    • I already have, I’m on MeWe now which is much better than facebook


    • @THE JACK HQ Good one, I did the same a couple of years ago and haven’t been back …Be aware though, all your information is still stored on FB and you never really ‘leave or quite FaceBook’ the account and all your info isn’t just deleted, it is stored..
      I just remembered it wasn’t just a straight forward thing to shut my account down, they have all these hoops for you to jump through and iirc the ‘close account button’ wasn’t out in the open either, it was 2 or 3 steps before I even found it.
