Have any UMA members now changed their views after all the revelations concerning Facebook's misuse of members' data?

I'm more of an "anti-social media" guy. I see so many idiots gleefully give away vital information just to post pictures of their meals. I'm sure many will post pics of what their food looks like when they sh#t it out. Face it, it's just a tool for losers to stalk ex-high school girlfriends (since they can't find women in the real world).

Mord!!! Wow!! That comment exemplified, on how I feel about FB. In the beginning, I really liked FaceBook and certain groups I had joined. There were some real neat vinyl, movie and collecting groups. Then the cracks started to surface and certain members became more brazen and how they felt and expressed their disdain towards members and their choices.

More and more, troll after troll. When a person who enjoys music and joins a Facebook group, I would think that an Admin would not allowed hateful, racist or any f***-up comments. But it happens.

I guess my point, is, never let a vast group, such as one on Fb groups know too much information. Because eventually said member or members will use it against that member.

There were a couple of so-called Horror groups I initially joined, that were just casual Horror fans. The caveat. Joining a Horror group leads in to SelfieTuesdays. Which had nothing to do with theme of the group. Which also lead to taking selfies and showing their homes, bathrooms, cars.....whatever.

I will never be on Facebook ever again. To be blunt. That Social Media network is awful. To quote you, Mord:     Face it, it's just a tool for losers to stalk ex-high school girlfriends (since they can't find women in the real world).
     


However. Let me expand on your quote. Facebook is also a tool to use in being a disgusting pervert or pedophile. More and more children are being exploited on Social Media....because Parents' do not govern their childrens usage or activities on Facebook or other social media networks.

 Very well-stated, my friend. I just love it when you hear stories about morons who get burglarized after posting pics while on vacation. Everybody wants their 15 minutes, at any cost.
  I also find it to be a cesspool of hatred, pedophilia, and anti-semitism. The hatred is quickly spread online while the shootings and destruction continues. Can you imagine if Hitler or John Wayne Gacy had access to the internet? It's getting scary out there.

I love cats!  Facebook has some great pages such as Grandpa Mason and his Kittens  and/or TinyKittens.  I lost a cat and have used FB to attempt to find her, no luck into her disappearance but I've connected with other cat lovers.

I am very careful what I post on community FB pages but have found out about new restaurants in the area and have shared my likes on my favorite Chinese takeout,  plumbers, vent cleaning services, tailors, dry cleaners .. etc.

Like any tool, you should use it wisely.

i still find a lot of groups I like on Facebook. The groups I follow include one on Dark Shadows, Old Houses, Svengoolie, and Funeral Coaches. Plus it's a lot easier to post pictures there, than on this site.

That's all very sensible. It can be a useful tool, but many times it's used as a weapon against society. Btw, my girlfriend and I are also big cat lovers. Sorry you never found your cat ( those little guys become your kids, after awhile).

I've started a Classic Comedy page, if anyone's interested. Movies, film stars & memorabilia! Sidesplitting photos to share the fun & memory of classic comedy films.

I've just been put in Facebook jail, for stating something factually true historically about one of the two major political parties. It bothers me that places like Facebook and "Go Comics" only want people to post one side of the political debate, but will claim anything said about their side, which is less then complimentary, goes against their "community standards". Here's an idea, why not just prohibit posting anything political at all, to prevent people from engaging in what George Orwell might describe as "wrong think"? Sorry for venting, and please don't respond with your politics, whatever they may be. I never come to Universal Monster Army to discuss politics.

I don't believe that Facebook is in any way objective when it comes to politics.

I don't have any social media (unless UMA counts?) because it's entirely useless to me, but if I did I think I would take great pleasure in gaining lots of Friends (because the sign of your own worth a is how many random cyberstalkers like to look at pictures of your entire life) and then systematically unfriending them all one by one. I think it would also be fun to deny friend requests. Not because I'm anti-social but rather because unless your number is in my contacts on my phone I simply don't care what you think. Heck, unless you're my wife or kids I don't care what you think.
