MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA Passions ran high Sunday night as CNN and other news outlets reported the not guilty Zimmerman verdict. Tweets and Facebook status updates were filled with posts ranging from cries of vengeance to jubilant shouts of joy. Strong opinions were prevalent and as a result more people hit the unfriend and block buttons in any day in Facebooks history. Said Zuckerberg, Everybody had something to say about Sundays verdict. Charges of racism were thrown around at everyone.

That’s a satire piece, I was reading about it earlier.
Are you sure it’s satire? I’ve seen a lot of fighting on both!!
Face Book also changed its privacy configuration once again.
Thanks to the new Graphic app, any person in Facebook anywhere in the world can see our photos, our likes and our comments.
Unfortunately we cannot change this configuration because Facebook has made it like this.
So, to get around that,
Members will need to post the following on their wall:
Please, place your cursor over “my photo” that appears in this box (without clicking) and a window will open.
Now move the cursor to the word Friends, again without clicking and then click on Settings. Uncheck Life Events and Comments and Like.
This way my activity with my family and friends will no longer be made public. Now, copy and paste this text on your own wall (do not share it!).
That’s a hoax.
Where do you find "my photo"? I don't see it anywhere on my fb page.
My question is how does one completely delete Facebook? My computer became infected on Facebook and I want off permanently.
FB does not reside on your pc. You can disable your account but the data will remain on their servers for ever. I would think removing one pic at a time would be effective.
As far as your pc go to the options - security tab in your browser and delete all cookies and history related to FB. I would bet you would have to delete ALL your history and cookies to truly remove it from your browser.
That is a hoax. If your friends do that, then they can’t see what YOU post because they have taken you out of their newsfeed.
Look under accounts
There are two options, deactivate which means it still exist but anyone contacting you via facebook will get a message that your account has been deactivated.
Second is to delete. It is complicated but they do give you the option. Warning. It takes 14 days to become official. If you sign in before the 14 day are up, the account is put back into service (I think this is to keep your friends from hacking into your account and deleting it)
I recently deactivated my account (after removing all my notes, photos and comments). I have not decided if I am going to make it permanent or not.
I will admit I missed it for a day or two but now not so much.
I unfriended someone, and I rarely if ever do that. She posted some extremely inane comment about Juror B27.
I have enjoyed her as a work friend, but her comment was over the top. I’m starting to realize I don’t want to be associated with these people as “friends.”
She is a person who immigrated here from Etresia as a child. She was nice to work with, but chooses to identify more as a black and as an Etresian. I don’t understand why anyone wants to come here, live their life here, ....yet be so despondant when the country doesn’t run their way.
Wish they’d just all go “home” if they don’t consider this their home. Because just camping out here to me seems more like stealing than anything else.
Wasn’t the verdict announced Saturday night? Does anyone edit these stories?
Well, true or not, this verdict and the trial that preceded it has exposed a lot of morons in the US.
My wife unfriended four people Sunday.
With all the changes that continually occur on facebook, I will leave a post up for maybe one day, then go back and delete it.same for pictures, my timeline is very short.
Are you sure?
Did you mean Eritria?
Etresia sounds like a medical condition.
It says at the top of the page that they made it up.
Where’s this “Etresia”?
“It says at the top of the page that they made it up.”
See my tagline.
I have seen the fighting going on. I really wonder.
I usually won’t unfriend someone over politics unless that person stoops to using vulgariities. People were using vile language to describe their dislike for Rommey and Palin a lot. Don’t want that stuff showing up on my timeline.
Positive. When your friends do what you describe, they will no longer see YOUR activity in their newsfeed. That's what that setting is for. It has nothing to do with who else can see it, for sure that friend can no longer see it without going to your timeline. This is also on Snopes as a hoax.
I actually have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. At times, I just want to delete my account and never venture there again. Other aspects I find useful. As a sailor in the Navy, I move around a lot and FB is a good way for old friends to keep in touch. I also, surprisingly, use it for work. People check their FB more than their email and nobody checks their work email on weekends. When I'm at sea and need something from a co-worker back on the beach, the quickest way to get a response is to send them a FB message.
What I really need to do is nuke my friends list down to only true friends and family members and certain co-workers. This would make FB a lot more tolerable.
I found some people will write things on Facebook that they would never say face to face.
I had been slowly defriending “friends” when they decided to use their Facebook account to share their political views.
Which I would have ignored but those on the left that preach tolerant are very intolerant of those that do not agree with them.
It finally got easier to just take my ball and go home.
I did something even better...I got the fuck off of FB.
You are on the cutting edge. It is possible that Facebook has peaked and you are just one of the leaders leaving it behind.
Lol,...well, I sure feel better getting rid of what was a time-wasting, bad habit. Attention whores “friending”,”unfriending”...”like-ing”..all bullshit.
LOL ...it IS a medical condition ...I obviously have been doing way too much studying! (in a medical field and studying now for a huge board exam). . .
That would be Atresia. Quit browsing FR and hit those books.
Good luck on your board exam.
