    Zuckerberg hears you.
    Zuckerberg sees the ad revenue for Q1.
    Zuckerberg doesn't hear you.

    Keep up with friends and families the old fashion way, call them or look them in the eye.

    My Facebook is a work tool as a extra method of communication. I set up groups to communicate with students in various classes. I never see political crap on my feed from any friend connections. I doubt I have seen any of the Russian bot ads. All of my employers, (academic) have pages that I participate as well.

    LOL. I have a couple of those, too, one of them disappointingly rabid ... an LEO (BP) who does not even believe in due process, especially if "it's obvious they did it." Weird.

    Another thing about Facebook: It's eliminating forums like this. Some other forums I participate in that are not politics are all but gone. Everybody's going to Facebook. Is that bad, good, progress or what? Reminds me of when Walmart started out and systematically wiped out local stores. I just hope Facebook is not as ruthless as Walmart.

    O.K. I'm back on Facebook. Realized it's good for my business and I'm a wimp.

    Idea number three involved debate which sadly informed me how woeful unprepared most are for that and become pissy, I then stopped but not after thinning down that friends list quite substantially

    Idea #2 is more prevalent then most people realize! Sad...
