Thursday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told the New York Times that the social network will revamp its news feed to emphasize “meaningful interaction” between friends and family. As a result, the news feed will significantly decrease the number of posts you’ll see from news outlets such as Motherboard.

:yeahthat: I don't look at any of the "news" posts or other stuff. It's a great way to keep in contact with far-reaching family.

U.N. investigators cite Facebook role in Myanmar crisis
Reuters, by Tom Miles, March 12, 2018

More than 650,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar’s Rakhine state into Bangladesh since insurgent attacks sparked a security crackdown last August. Many have provided harrowing testimonies of executions and rapes by Myanmar security forces.

Marzuki Darusman, chairman of the U.N. Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar, told reporters that social media had played a “determining role” in Myanmar.

“It has ... substantively contributed to the level of acrimony and dissension and conflict, if you will, within the public. Hate speech is certainly of course a part of that. As far as the Myanmar situation is concerned, social media is Facebook, and Facebook is social media,” he said.

U.N. Myanmar investigator Yanghee Lee said Facebook was a huge part of public, civil and private life, and the government used it to disseminate information to the public.

I don't like the new Google news headlines format either. It is all NY Times and CNN garbage headlines. And formatted for smart phones, not computers. Seems to be the trend.

I had Facebook for 10 hours many years ago, and I was deluged by people I didn't want to talk to from Chicago. I had to get rid of it. People are literally dying to locate me

I don't use FB, but I think it may have peaked. Usage going down, other alternatives grabbing share.

I still use email to stay in contact with friends. Low tech, lol
