I have lost Face with FaceBook by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz
 
Around 2 months ago I closed 2 FaceBook accounts and still have 2 others active. The problem is with all these privacy breaches that have been going on with FaceBook I am very disappointed. Also July 14th FaceBook has a (NEW) privacy policy that the network just wants you to click agree on, and I'm sure without having the time to read it and or understand it's contents.
 
So that being said I will no longer be logging into my 2 FaceBook accounts after July 7th because I do not want to be a part of this type of network that robs me of my personal information, data collecting, etc.
 
If you want to find me then Google Robert Swetz, Vegas Bob and or Robert Vegas Bob Swetz there is plenty of information and other networks to find me.
I will be blogging on Blogger.com which in owned by Google and of course the ActiveRain network.
I have been with the ActiveRain network as long as FaceBook and AR doesn't collect all this personal data like FB. And with a smaller group of friends and associates it's more personal, etc. With very few posts post about politics, news, etc the ActiveRain network is a great place to be.
 
To find me there Google Vegas Bob - ActiveRain
 
Not logging into FaceBook is going to be very hard and I am sure I will go through some type of withdrawals but most 90% of my life was lived without FaceBook ... I will be fine ;o)

I love it when someone stands behind their convictions, Bob! I'm less concerned about invasion of privacy, as I mostly do posts to my business page and don't do very much personal stuff on my personal page... I use that mostly to keep track of old friends, family, and clients.

It isn't all about the privacy update but if you go through the back door of privacy setting you will see tracking by FB, log ins from all devices, make, model, time and some very strange stuff. Also every like, comment, etc, friends, followers of friends is all documented. When you go to messenger FB has been know to get through the back door of your smart phone, pulling photos from your phone, contact numbers and more.

I have been working in the heart of Silicon Valley and you have no clue as to the information these tech companies are pulling from our smart phones. I have worked on commercial building projects and they track everyone's phone and information inside them ;o(

Bob, think many have gotten off Facebook, as so many have been hacked.   Then again, too many share too much also.

The only way I would keep working my accounts at FaceBook if Mark Zuckerberg hired me to work for the FB network ;o)

Kudos to you Bob! I have really backed off of FB. I wish people happy birthday and get on occasionally to see what people are up to but don't want to give it access to my phones photos. It should only access what I want it to access, right?!

Facebook is indeed becoming worse and worse as the days progress and their commercial about saying they are going back to how it used to be seems to be a lie.  I am on the edge of leaving it too, as I don't even get to see the posts from my friends.  Their only solution for it seems to be selecting 25 people that you want to see first, but I have way more than 25 people in which I am interested in seeing their posts.

As long as you are still here on ActiveRain, that's all I need.  I still belong to Facebook, but I primarly stay there because I have a great business site going.

Hello Nina,

I can understand you keeping your blogging platform mostly about business but it's not just that, FaceBook is like big brother and if you've seen the movie 1984 by Orson Welles you will know what I'm taking about ;o/

I hear you loud and clear.  I didn't trust FB right from the start when they began messing with my content pretending to be me - I wouldn't miss them if they imploded.

Good afternoon Vegas Bob - not a big fan either.  I find there are too many rants there.

Facebook has gotten very heated with discussions there and I have never seen much value in the place.

I don't want to eliminate FB completely - we get quite a bit of business there - but I have cut down my time on FB significantly.
