No, I don't feel the need to share cute pictures or what I'm doing on a moment-by-moment basis with anyone.

No. If I have anything important to say, I will send that information to the person(s) for whom it would be pertinent. Most sites I have seen are filled with garbage, foulness, and ridiculous statements and pictures. The youngsters need to realize that such immaturity can come back and bite them. Employers can look at the FB pages to help decide whether or not to hire.

yes, but do not post daily and I am not on it all the time. Who has the time and why does everyone need to know every little detail about your life??

Worked for the government.. and if you didn't know, vast quantities of information posted to FB and other social media are kept for 'inspection' and having heard the lame "But honest people have nothing to hide!" excuse, there is *plenty* to lose from belonging to a society which does not value privacy. We see Peace and Justice societies being compromised and disrupted by police agitators. What's wrong with wanting Peace? Veterans Against Foreign wars: whose idea was it to put spies among them? And do we want large corporations selling our personal information, say to OIL INDUSTRY execs who can devise ways to troll us?

ANYTHING you place on FB or social media is 'out there' including contact information for the nice, not so nice, the super unkind and the people trying to robo-call you to sell stuff. Okay, 'so what?' What is: if you give your information over to others and give up privacy you cannot claim it back. Your original expressions, your ideas, your right to be accurately quoted: GONE!

But most important is that what we also lose is the ability to communicate with one another personally. Yep, studies conclusively reveal that communication ability drops significantly with social media, as does clarity of thought and the ability to empathize.

No I do not have a Face Book account and will not get one. I am a independent business man and do advertise in a lot of places, but will not be suckered in to a FB account.

Most people here are nice, kind and do post accurate prices, again for the most part. I feel by opening the flood gates by trying to attract FB to post can stir the pot up. This will increase false posts, rudeness and more work for the Mod's to fix. I have been here for the last 4+ years and made a lot of nice buddy's. I do have some on my ignore list due to there problems they pass on to others. Why should one be "forced" into a FB account that really doesn't want one. On top of that, I would have to open an alias account that would not really have my correct name. I can just see the Mods and users there not liking my username.

I already hear from some that didn't like the ads being for smartphones or iphones only. They are already missing out in the challenges that is for app users only. Why continue to divide others apart that have been here a long time? Remember, this site works because of "US".

I really do not see the point of people posting "Doesn't everyone?"

The short answer is: NO, not everyone does.
That's kind of the point of this topic, isn't it, to see who uses it or not?

No points should ever be earned on Facebook as it creates an uneven playing field. 25% said NO!

No. Nor Twitter.

Social media sites like them, are going downhill fast.
Seems they are all filled with sick freaks that just want a way to show off how immature and stupid they are, as well as post junk that no one really wants to see.
