    Love how this occurred in 2019 and it is just now getting out. 32 million here in the states.

    Mark Zuckerberg is the only person with the power to cover it up.
    From the beginning, I didn't trust Facebook or Twitter, so never opened an account. Even posting a photo of your home is risky because your address can easily be found just by a photo and nothing else.

    I keep mine open only to keep up with some of the people I drove with when I worked in Iraq. And I don't check in there as often as I once did.
    I read somewhere recently that 75 % of all of the B S political posts and memes on Facebook could be traced back as having originated with one of only 12 different people. Sound unbelievable but sure wouldn't surprise me.

    Never gave them my ph # in the first place.

    I got rid of all my social media once the rona became a thing. Best decision of my life.
     
    Rocks, Isafarmboy, tommymonza and 4 others Thank this.

    I know it. It just amazes me how many people believe what they read there. Like showing a notable person with a quote that was never made.

    I hear that #### all of the time from 2 buddies of mine. They are constantly believing some crazy #### that was taken out of context, or a half truth, or just a blatant lie. It usually takes me about 30 seconds to prove then wrong, and it's ALWAYS wrong.
     
    AModelCat Thanks this.
