Response to DetlefK (Original post)

Wed Dec 19, 2018, 10:36 AM

68. Ok Facebook is problematic. Way problematic

But, that being said, it keeps me connected to friends and family members whom I would not be able to have any contact with otherwise and I've met tons of people I would never have met otherwise. It is probably my only pipeline to having a social life at present. I'm personally in no rush to get rid of it. A lot of marginalized groups don't have any other means of communication with the outside world beyond social media. Don't throw away the proverbial "baby" with the bathwater and keep on pushing for social media companies to be more responsive/responsible to our concerns.
