    I try and avoid, but you can find old girlfriends from high school easily...
    I was all excited yesterday because it said I had two new notifications.
    And I thought someone had written me... When I clicked on it, the
    notification was that two people (friends of friends of friends I don't
    know) had "liked" some post of someone's.

    I joined at the behest of friends in the UK. What a bloody nuisance! Every
    time someone farted I received a notification.
    So, I quit the bloody thing but inspite of this, I still get a weekly e-mail
    from them!
    You are wise to avoid it!
    Graham

    *******************

    Turn OFF "notifications". (They don't make it easy.) I gave up on FB
    practically the minute I signed up. When you deactivate the account, unless
    you turned off all notifications you'll continue to get email every time
    someone posts something. I signed up out of curiosity. Suddenly I had all
    these "friend" requests from people I don't know. They happen to know
    someone I know or some such nonsense, so by extension I should want them to
    be my "friends", too. I don't know who you are so no, I'm not going to
    "friend" you.

    This whole "follow every minute of someone's day" mentality bugs me. Do I
    Tweet? Nope. Even if I still had a smartphone, I wouldn't be snapping a
    picture of the muffin I bought at The Berry Café and tweet to the world
    "Excellent!" Seriously, who gives a rats ass?

    As did I! A friend asked me to join, which I did. I lasted about one week
    and said 'no more!'

    I didn't actually turn anything off, I got requests for a while and then it
    just stopped. This was a few years ago so maybe that it the reason. My
    children and grandchildren still try to persuade me to go back on. No
    chance!

    I turned off notifications - they didn't make it easy, but I eventually
    figured it out. Now, I look at FB when I want to, and am not bothered by
    constant emails.

    I think FB is going down. No doubt, things change. Who would guess that
    Microsoft would look like the little guy and that Apple would be the
    biggest corporation in history and that Linux would be the most popular
    OS in the world?

    My sister is addicted to Farmville, as was the ex. She told me to try it for
    5 minutes. After 10, I said: I don't like this. Then she starts clicking on
    things for me. Planting corn, etc. After 15 minutes, I got up walked away.
    Then she sat down and started planting all kinds of crap, with my account.
    (Then she could send me and herself "prizes")

    I was at my sister's house and walked in her room while she was on
    Farmville. She says, without looking up: This is so much work! Her face
    glued to the VDU.

    I have a Linux cert, but never really understood the hoopla. Or how to use
    it. I tried.

    I hope FB goes down.... though crap floats to the top... actually, not
    always. I don't think that saying is true.

    That's all there is to it. I'm sure older people hated the phone in
    the beginning too. Croaky voice, bony finger in the air: "They call me
    about every little thing!".

    As an "older" person, I'll bet "John John" doesn't remember a world without
    cell phones. LOL Used to be you had an operator to connect your phone
    calls. She was probably listening in on the call if you lived in a small
    town or village (yes, they called them villages in Ohio, US). The house
    had only one telephone and no one was allowed to use it for more than 10
    minutes at a time. Oh, and it was a phone with a cord... attached to socket
    in the wall. Imagine that, "John John". <G>

    Please spare me the newfangled "social media". As to the original subject,
    yes, turn off notifications before deactivating the account. I think there
    is even a way to *delete* your FB account. But they don't make that easy to
    find.
