Every day more and more censorship is out there. And not a single freedom uproar, even Republican cucks are quiet.
Do you think anybody cares if Facebook is filled with propaganda and censors?
And yes, I know, I know, don't use FB. But when you were one of the earliest adaptors back when I was in college, you didn't understand what it was and would become.
Everyone secretly knows most everything is fake, so they start to play the game themselves. It's probably a worse virus than covid and has probably led to more suicides than covid, especially among younger people, which is sad for how stupid FB is.
First of all, it was endlessly promoted by our "news" media. That's a red flag right there. It was then pre-installed on smart phones, another red flag. Third, it was used for commenting on nearly every "news" sites, that's yet another red flag.
It wasn’t giving me anything but aggravation.

richwicks saysFirst of all, it was endlessly promoted by our "news" media. This is true: NPR was constantly droning about it very early on. I thought it was weird for a public radio to blatantly promote a private business.
Not sure what they'd be getting out of me.
# of engagements and # of "active users". More of those and they can sell ads for higher price. So you are supporting them by virtue of having an account.
No likes, comments, posts, clicking links, etc. I also use burner accounts for almost everything I do where my IP is the only identifying factor and even then it's all over the place due to VPN.
What is/was early though? Out of curiosity I looked it up, Feb 2004 FB was created (I suck with dates). I graduated college in '05. I for sure had an account in 2004, 100%. Like I mentioned I signed up but didn't use it. I used my college email account and lost access.
Also, if we can not be inconvenienced to cancel facebooks, twitters, gmails, etc then perhaps we should not whine and complain about being censored by the said companies.
It was open to the public in 2006, iirc, and this is when fucking NPR started to hawk it at every turn.
ut there's MUCH more than IPs that they use to link people to accounts.
Using each account from a diff computer, each computer with diff hardware, and with diff IPs would probably work ok so long as youre strict about never logging into the same account from both computers
