    As the title states, I'm curious to hear if you guys/gals still use a personal Facebook account.

    I know I sound like a pretentious hipster douche when I say this, but I haven't touched my personal Facebook account in like 4 years. Not that I'm hiding from anything, but for me, it was just full of shit that I had zero fucks for. I really only had people from high school and early years of college added as friends, and for whatever reason I just give zero fuc- I give less than zero fuc- I give negative fucks about their shit.
    I got my peoples that I rock with, I don't need social media to help me keep up with my people.

    At the same time, I don't blame people for using FB either. I was pretty attached at one point and still use social media accounts for marketing purposes, so I still get my dose of social media every once in a while.

    Anyway, I'm just curious to see how others treat social media, especially those that know that FB are just using you for your info

    PS sorry for the pre-teen rant, and Happy New Years everyone!

    Yes, I use it pass some time when bored. Following some funny pages to get daily dose of humor.

    However it has been more than 2 years since I uploaded any image.

    Yes, but I upload shit rarely (like 1 photo on my wall for 2 years :D )
    Then funny thing is that I'm into IG authority profile making, but never created a personal IG acc.
    Exactly, same here. Most of my friends actually don't have facebook accounts at all, only whatsapp.

    I had also 3 fake profiles, but they all now asks for verification. All of them have 3k+ friends and it asks to recognize these friends in the picture. Impossible. :D

    Just for the chat these days. I think something changed a couple of years ago that made the feed all fucked up.

    i use it for one group chat and to check up on a few car groups since they tend to sell parts there.

    with the growth of facebook alot of car forums have pretty much moved to facebook, since its easier for other enthusiasts to find the group. but do i upload photos and make statues? fuck no and i dont look and my crappy ad filled feed

    I only really use my personal account now because I have several clients on there who insist on chatting with me through Messenger. If they left Facebook, I would leave as well.

    Other than that, I share images every now and then about any plants I'm growing or work I'm doing to my car, but that's just to keep people from deleting me.

    Years ago, I actually shared updates on my business, but my "friends & family" didn't care for it much; if it's not college, relationships, "real work", or stupid memes, they don't want to see it.
