Does anyone here not use Facebook and never have ?
Or, rather, should I say, to be more precise in addressing the question posed in the original post, I don't.
That is, I don't use Facebook, never have, and never plan to do so.
I do not use Facebook. Why do you ask?
I've maybe posted 5 - 7 times on it taking part in other peoples discussions over the last 7 years.
I've also never used that advertising company. Far worse than Google IMO.
I never heard this before.
Never have, never will. Not on twitter either.
I have no use for it.
Only those with something to hide don't use FB. People's lack of FB profile will be noticed by the FBI.
I have no use for it. It's a useless and intruding service.
You don't have to have something to hide to not use Facebook. I have one, but it is a giant waste of time and if it weren't for the fact that it's the easiest way to stay in touch with friends in other countries I would delete it.
Or properly policed personal and private boundaries.
Your sarcasm is terrible.
Don't say I didn't warn you...
Quite candidly, I didn't even realise that it was an attempt at sarcasm.
But, nevertheless, it is good to have that cleared up.
... but you do use it, for a specific reason, and that's my outlook on Facebook: it's a tool, that can be used selectively, and there are specific use cases where can be of some value (like you indicated above). It recently provided us with a way to easily share some photos from a reunion, get notification about a pre-sales for a concert, manage a cruise-in event (and easily distribute info, directions, get a head count, etc.).
I logged out of facebook a couple years ago and never logged back in, I do however use G+ because I can curate my feed.
I started an account at the behest of a friend moving out of state. I never had anything to post and closed it a few months later, once the friend's daughter's account got hacked and I started getting weird e-mails supposedly from her. Sure don't miss it. I feel no desire to be in anybody's business and don't want them in mine.
I don't use Facebook because I have no friends or anything exciting in my own life to share, plus it's quite cool to brag that I don't use it because people will think I'm different from the norm...
Just kidding I use it and enjoy using it as I live far from my family and it helps me stay in touch. I've also rekindled old friendships through it and very grateful for that. I censor things I don't want yo see and customise my feed to make it an enjoyable experience. There's no food photographers and whiners in my feed!!!
I left Facebook during the Scottish independance referendum. Haven't looked back
