    Default Facebook is going down the toilet

    Lost count of the number of people I've snoozed or unfollowed since the Christmas break. Not all for the same reason either.....
    • Old people who insist on posting every spam thing doing the rounds
    • Women now posting nothing but baby pics. I followed you for your cleavage pics, wench!
    • Liverpool fans. Tedious at best.
    • Political experts from a council estate, so wise that they're stuck in their slum dwelling.
    • Extremists of the left and right, both unable to change their ways but thinking they can change others


    Sadly I need Facebook to stay in touch with family and other friends as well as a couple of sports groups. There must be easier ways.

    Set up a WhatsApp group just for your family members - that's what my Mrs has done and I stay the hell away from it!

    Never joined. Always sounded totally naff to me.

    However, it's a godsend for employers, Police, HMRC, DWP Fraud Office etc.

    I gave up about 2 years or so ago. Vastly reduced my use of WhatsApp and Instagram too.

    I can't say I miss FB at all.

    Actually lost some friends because of it as they felt I was being selfish...
