I have deactivated my Facebook. I don’t miss it at all. If people want to reach me, they have my number or they can send me an email. I never gave the rat my email. I used a separate one for Facebook and Instagram because of all the spam and I never even look at that account anymore. I think that social media is due for some intervention and strict regulations. It can’t continue as a free for all for scamming criminals.For the time being, I'm not on Facebook and I doubt I will participate with it in the future.
I'm sure the complete damage of uncontrolled social networking on Facebook is unreported, undocumented, and certainly not studied. It's really scary what exploitable social media sites are allowing to happen. So, I'll be doing my own research and continue to find resources. I've found several U.S. major media sites reporting on fraud/scam on Facebook this year. It's been an issue, especially during the Cambridge Analytica political disaster. To me, it's not if Facebook has to change, it's just WHEN.
