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.
