    Notice how there's allot more content on Facebook Watch. Not that they'll ever be s threat to You Tube but they could steal enough viewers away to be a thorn in their side just the same.

    Facebook is just not the greatest! They should make Facebook to where there's no harassment because that's something I had to deal with until I took care of it! They always talked about making Facebook safer but I still don't see it!

    If they encrypt facebook messages that really has nothing to do with the newsfeed, they are two separate things. On another note... I stopped following all of my contacts on facebook, totally recommended!

    Mr. Zucks doesn't even trust Facebook, he puts tape on his laptop camera at work. Facebook will become the next Yahoo.

    As long as I respect and follow my own rules of being a decent human being and respect others, I dont have to bother with this, i am not afraid of what I share on social media. You, Mark Zuckerberg, don't waste your time, sir, looking for irrelevant stuff. Take your wife and kids on a trip, it's much better to spend useful time with your family than to spy on other ppl's account

    Personally I never did care to participate with Facebook or any other social media. I do communicate via. e-mail to friends, family,
    business associates and general acquaintances. My personal file at it's peak had 24,600+ recipients. I have enjoyed sending and
    receiving news & notes from these special friends. We do not advertise products or services of any kind, we simply have opinions
    on a variety of topics and enjoy expressing ourselves. We seem to respect an unwritten agreement to agree to disagree occasionally.

    Not sure if the ads are not target to me is a good thing at all.. I don't want to see those irrelevant ads on my facebook. Only US people heavily worry about privacy.
