Is Facebook a violation to your sanity?
Think about it. Whatever you post is up for office fodder or neighborhood chatter and plenty of it behind your back is not so pleasant. It's almost like putting yourself on a butcher's block for everyone to go "Chop chop chop". Granted it's good for the grandmother living across the country to see grandkids and family stuff like that but there are some pretty sketchy territories that Facebook involves and I'm glad that I deactivated my account because I learned the hard way that all is not kosher on the other side of the screen. I like my life private and the feeling of being less exposed.
Facebook will only be a "violation" if you let it.
I keep my Facebook as silly and meaningless as possible. I post mainly stuff about movies, music (and links to my Hubpages, of course), or simply quotes/musings that are meant to be funny...I'm very careful and post nothing on there that can be used against me. (i.e. no "selfies," no political rants, complaints about my job, smack talking about other people, etc. etc.)
Aha! Good one, Melissa. You've said it well and yes, it is a violation of sanity and privacy if one isn't careful. For example: teenagers (and some older of course) leaving permanent digital footprints with cursing, threatening and raving in the internecine war of boy-girl relationships which are also open for all to see .
Thank you and it's very true. Facebook is very much a horse and pony show that flatters your ego like butter, but only if you're savvy with the technology.
Even with the savvy there's no100% protection. It's the wild, wild, west and that's alright for an open and free net imho. Thanks, Melissa.
I agree with FatFreddysCat - you control what you post, so it's up to you whether or not it violates anything. For example, I rarely post pictures and I absolutely refuse to discuss politics because I find the attitudes people have about differing opinions to be very upsetting to my "sanity", therefore I scroll by really fast if someone even mentions serious debate. To me, Facebook is all in good fun. That means games and silly pics (not revealing or sexual ones) and staying in touch with family.
Facebook is good for nothing really, & is certainly not socially interacting..I mean come on socially interacting whilst sat on your sofa, when you could actually be talking to them or visiting them..Facebook logs everything you've ever posted etc, & is just another way for big brother (the government) to keep track of you, & build their data base about each & everyone of us....Google reads your e-mails, & the government spies on you..Anyway just look at what people on facebook want to talk about, nothing important as it's just one more of the governments distractions..They keep you all sat at home whilst they read what your talking about etc, & hardly anyone nowadays actually "socially interacts" anymore..Facebook & the T.V & the News/Newspapers & Celebrity Worshiping is all in the same boat for me.
