    Sounds more like the list of things facebook wants advertisers to think they know about facebook users to sell advertising.

    This is just my opinion but I can't help but get the feeling that when FB added the option of being able to react to a post with either a Like, Love, Sad, Funny or Sad option that we are inadvertently teaching it to learn. Sort of like an AI.

    I am sure FB didn't add those options in just for the fun of it and to just 'help improve the user experience of FB'.

    But that's just an opinion.

    Good thing I rarely use FB.

    I filled out my name. That's it. I have 0 friends, I'm in like 5 groups and there's 2 posts on my wall. So FB should know that I hate it.

    That's #99.

    #100 is mental health diagnosis.

    Now change your title.

    These guys tried to sue me with C&D letters and finally made me shut down my website.

    Was the last time I ever used Facebook back then.

    That is probably exactly right!

    People are working for free for corporations. Pokemon Go is a massive distributed surveillance machine. Millions of idiots filming and recording streets and homes everywhere.

    Ffs man. I don't like the fact that you posted moobs bigger than my boobs. I'm insulted.

    Reported.

    EDIT: ...Srsly, my breasts hurt just from looking at that pic. I'm holding them protectively. That looks incredibly painful and all around unpleasant. Ugh. *shudders*
