Just another note for you fine folks out there that think "deactivating" your account means something.

IT DOES NOT

You have to manually delete your account, then not go to sites that use facebook in any way, shape or form.

This includes FARK.

Any site that has that little "like" symbol reports some activity to FB.

That shiat is still being tracked.

They have millions of little ways to "accidentally on purpose" reactivate your account.

Delete it.

Get a tracker blocker.

Don't click on their email if they send you one, other than the one that says you do indeed want to delete your account.

Set your email to send anything that even mentions facebook to spam.

And never look back.

You might actually enjoy your family again once you no longer see all of that stupid, mindless drivel they share and spew from "news" sites.

I'm not overly familiar with those files, but can you just add the high level domains? Why do you need to add all the sub domains? Is it cause they all have their own IP addresses?

Pretty much, yes. Unless you use your own DNS server that can do wildcards, like dnsmasq.

For some reason it seems publishers want everything written like it's a puff piece these days. An article about a trauma surgeon's campaign to educate people about the effects of gun violence started with 6 paragraphs about her appearance and her family, then spent two paragraphs on what sweetener packets she keeps at the hospital for her coffee, before actually getting to the real story about gun violence, the effects of bullets on the body, what the Murkkan need for bigger and bigger guns has meant to trauma wards, etc. Another piece about an archaeologist exploring what little remains of a hidden community of escaped slaves in some of the most uninhabitable land in the south gave long descriptions of his clothes, his hair, his cigarettes, and his wife before actually getting to the history of escaped slave settlements in the south and his work in trying to find out what happened to the people after the war.
I just skip the first quarter or so of the article. It usually hides some interesting journalism.

And yet, I still get harassed about not having a Facebook account.  The only way to win this game is to not play.
 
2017-10-13 09:52:27 AM  
I so don't get it. I've never had a Facebook account, and when I ask people why they use Facebook, the answer is always something along the line of "It make it easy to find people and stay in touch."

Okay, I get that. Some people actually give a crap about finding people they went to elementary school with so they can talk about eating paste or whatever. Got it. I also get the idea that once you've found these people, you feel like sharing pictures and stuff about your life, like when folks used to subject others to vacation slide shows and pictures of their grand kids.

Then I read about "news" on Facebook, and how it's caused WWIII and so on, and I must be some kind of a old fuddy-duddy, because I keep asking myself "Why would onyone read news from some site designed to find and keep people in touch as opposed to, y'know, a company that actually does news?"

There's a less complicated means to thr same end.  Just wallpaper scooter's page with 2girlsandacup-esque imagery and the minions shall complete the acct deletion process for you. (Not tom--that other guy, what's his name.)

But really, one should go out with an ear-damaging bang. Scour 4chan for the best (worst) of the raunchiest, plaster them all over your racist trumpanzee friend's (or family's) wall you spent all those years tolerating.  Toss in a note like "here are those pics you wanted" or somethin of the like. Be creative...the limit is your imagination

To me, this is reminiscent of Maddox's page on good ways to die, like rolling out your eyeballs with an ice cream scoop and replacing them with cadbury eggs. Maybe not to those extremes, but that samr tired adage of life makes itself apparant time and time again: if you're gonna do something, goddammit, do it right.

Sorry I should have finished my thought. People did that in our debate class and everyone got really fed up with peeps doing this rote description of the key words in the topic when they stood up and did their bit. We know what they mean, get to the point!
Anyway I guess what I'm trying to say is that sometimes you should just get in there as quick as possible and start thrusting.

I just can't stand Zuckerburg however you spell his name.Before I knew his name I loathed the level of greed and selfishness built into his information gathering system.
It only took 30 sec of reading his user agreement, so that at least was good.
Facebook(Zuckerburg) owns everything of yours that you put on Facebook
WTF no F'ing way
People are stupid lemmings
 
2017-10-13 10:56:23 AM  
Not everybody at Facebook is complicit in this Russian shiat. But one person very definitely is: its CEO (or whatever Zuckerber's title is, probably something douchey like "The Man" or something like that). Whether he actually knows in great detail what's going on, the fact is, he's the public face of Facebook (smirk) and this shiat is on him.

So ... there's that.

Having said that, a real good way to not have to look at Facebook shiat is to not be on Facebook. It's actually possible to live life without Facebook. It's amusing when people say shiat like, "How am I supposed to keep up with friends and family," as if there's no other possible way to do that. No other way in which to contact friends and relatives and coworkers other than Facebook. None at all. fark I don't know what we all did before Facebook. Telegraphs, I guess. The progression went straight from telegraphs using Morse code to Facebook, with nothing in between. It's science.

Use Facebook if you want but using it while biatching about it is grounds for scorn. Do it or don't do it but stop farking biatching about it.

Thanks for this PSA.  Someone needs to do this on more than a single post in a thread.  There needs to be a dedicated website on HOW TO UNFACEBOOK with all the technical nuances, a good editorial on why this should be done and some factual facts about what they did in the last election.

Facebook's original purpose is so that you could "friend" people you know, and then "friend" people that you sort of know, and eventually "friend" some hot chicks that you could hopefully meet.
I don't see how it's ever changed from that original purpose, for a normal person.

Because when you get news from Facebook, you can be entirely certain before you even click the link, just based on the person who's sharing the link in the first place, that you're going to read something that you agree with and that reinforces your personal views. It's stupid and intellectually disingenuous, but that kind of reinforcement is powerfully attractive, and none of us are totally immune to it.

I kind of think it is funny how everyone seems to think Facebook had a lot to do with Trump being elected.  Leading up to the election, all I remember seeing posted was anti-Trump stuff. Very professional looking by the way, almost like there was a marketing plan behind it
Maybe that was just because most of my friends are very left.

Facebook and the internet in general would have had a lot to do with anyone getting elected, no matter who won.
It had a lot to do with Obama getting elected.
The internet contributed a good amount to W. getting elected too.
The difference is that there's more right-wing lying propaganda than ever before and it's more outrageously, ridiculously dishonest than ever before. And it was pretty dishonest before.
