I find it very useful, have joined several specialist groups and have been reunited with a lot of old friends, the Messenger app is great for sending information, images and documents, also its group chat function is handy for organising events and meets. I also have a Twitter account but stopped using it, as it suffers more from keyboard warriors and trolls than Facebook, just as bad as newsgroups had become.

But the good thing about all of these forms of communication, if you don't like them it's very easy to not use them. :)

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

A breeding ground for anti-Western, anti-democracy liberal left, Trosky idiots who are unable to smell the coffee,

Twitter stock dives after Israel threatens legal action over pro-terrorism tweets

FB on the other hand is great for family and friends whom it is difficult to visit regularly
Is Twatter to be under similar scrutiny soon ?

Never having done 'social media' , are there any others out there that offer similar 'services' to mankind that should be avoided at all costs ?

So's a telephone... :-rofl2
You cannot display pictures on your average telephone, being 'in touch' is not just about talking to each other

Well sceptics........ all I will say further on the matter is that for some people, myself included, the video link function of FB is great for me my family and my friends, if it does not suit you then fine I too have joined many specialist groups and also found school friends from 50 years ago, living on the opposite side of the planet, perhaps it is just your youthful exuberance that persuades you otherwise
