Find out what @Facebook thinks you are politically:
They had me down as "very conservative" which is right on the money and downright creepy because I don't post about politics on Facebook.

My wife, who is very conservative, is pegged as "Very Liberal" which is hilarious. She thinks it might be because she is friends with a lot of very liberal Californians where we live and her co-workers are very liberal, too.
If you have a FB account, what does FB say about you?
Back in the early 1960s my Grandpa was on the local USDA farm committee. A secretary showed him the office manager had Rs and Ds on the folders. They fired the manager.
What is this “FB” of which you speak?
You are a commodity to be bought and sold.

Ah, a “WPBC” huh? I’m surprised the black SUVs haven’t shown up at your door yet.
My leaning is not difficult for anyone of limited skills to discern. Republican Central Committee membership might reveal itself from time to time. Then there is my attendance at the nominating convention as a Trump-pledged alternate delegate. I also from time to time post or comment on cat videos.
NO. THEY CAN’T. Not with me anyway *LOL*.
I checked. They don’t even have a “politics” entry for me. You know why?
Because I’m on Facebook SOLELY because of an art interest that I discuss and participate in. Not politics.
For a year and a half I hit the “don’t show me posts like this” next to every single political post popping up from my FB friends. After awhile, they stopped showing them.
I have also NEVER posted anything political in 3 years (before then I wasn’t on FB).
So I’m a cipher to old Zuck. And - I LIKE it that way!!!
I’m tagged as a Liberal, haven’t really done much to hide my affiliation on facebook or the web in general other than I don’t open my mouth to blurt things out without thinking as much as the average lib.
>> They had me down as “very conservative” which is right on the money and downright creepy because I don’t post about politics on Facebook.
That’s probably why they had you marked as very conservative. The liberals feel free to spew their politics. Some conservatives share politics, but many self-censor.
Also your profile probably indicated that you were employed. ;-)
They certainly know where I live. Alexa ratted me out.
We don’t have the “R” and “D” problem here in Silicon Valley any more. All the “R”s are either underground or fired. No need for an office manager to keep the tally.
If you/others think its only facebook that knows this stuff, you’d be quite surprised. Just about every major retailer knows. PS sounds like your wife is more liberal than she lets you know.
Odd, because my wife and I are like that, too (except we haven’t clicked the “don’t show me posts like this”). We are apolitical on FB. How could they label me “conservative” because I like landscape and bird photography? They got me write, but 180 degrees off on my wife. I guess it all balances out.
Interesting you don’t even rate a “Politics” category.
They have me listed as conservative.
Mines “very conservative”
I only have 3 friends, My daughter and a buddy, both of whom I accidentally “friended”
I’d guess it’s because I get the Free Republic FB feed.

Also listed as very conservative, and I don’t do politics on FB at all.
