    I want to quit Facebook so badly, but I NEED to use WhatsApp. Family, friends, work even. All informal and semi-formal chats go through WhatsApp where I live.

        Right. I’m still used to the parent company being named Facebook.

        I have no Facebook, I want no Facebook. When I got my now job a few years back they said “we couldn’t find you on Facebook.” That’s right, you can’t.

        And yes I get left out of that communication stream, but absolutely don’t care. Like, not even a little bit.

        I’m waiting it out. Already my kids see it as “boomer shit”.

      I hate Facebook. Marketplace is unfortunately the only place a lot of stuff is listed, even though it also sucks. I said I wanted stuff within 85 miles, why are you showing me stuff that’s 400 miles away??? Craigslist is genuinely a better experience (via the mobile app) these days, but no one uses it.

        I guess I’m at least lucky that marketplace isn’t used here primarily.

        I just use Craigslist anyway and accept that I’m missing out on selection.

          Often I do too, but I’m in a mid-sized city so sometimes it isn’t an option if I want to find a deal on something.

          I only set up notifications on Craigslist’s app though.

        This.

        I buy and sell heaps of stuff on Facebook.

        We have young kids. It must have saved us thousands buying everything second hand and flipping it later.

      I haven’t viewed the actual Facebook app/feed in probably 7 or 8 years, but I have a Facebook for messenger. There are just too many people that rely on it as a sole form of communication, I was just getting left out of shit.

      I don’t really see the problem though, do you not have the self control not to browse?

        I do, luckily. But I’d rather not use any Meta apps.
