    The simple solution is to refrain from joining Facebook. That's what I did.
    It would be funny if all smartphones suddenly stopped working. A whole generation would be completely lost.

    Imagine all those phones sticking out of earth, in a giant circle, a thousand years from now, like stonehedge.

    One of my last FTX I led was day time land nav. I asked this one E4 if he knew where the road was to link up with 2nd. He pulled out his F-ing phone and google mapped it.

    Every site does that. Even PH.

    You can block this tracking.

    Also, once the Facebook app is on your phone it's been impossible to remove entirely, on some models. The mic and location tracking is still operating even after uninstall. (primarily iPhone6/SamsungS5 and S6 models)

    Here is some good news, maybe. Google expands controls to allow you to at least not see the ads that follow you through cookies/history.

    Many of my posts here show up on Google. That was a shock.
