    I know Facebook knows everything about me. So I’m at a point where I just don’t care. I simply won’t put anything personal on Facebook… but it will find out anyway (thanks to the almighty pixel).

    Recently, I found a script on some website that you can use to systematically go through and delete everything from your Facebook Profile. Think that might be your best chance to truly dislocate from their (parasitic) ecosystem.

      I hear what you are saying P.S. We are damned if we do or damned if we don’t. I think it is important that we be aware that our actions are potentially being watched and/or recorded, but there is also the matter of living life and sharing that with friends and family—the original point of FB.

      So yes, we can go and delete stuff, but maybe we should just use a critical eye on what we post. I would be interested in seeing the website you found though.

      Thanks for weighing in.

        From the general public, I can see what you mean. From Facebook’s perspective – I don’t think it’s “potential” anymore. They’re scraping everything. They’re using algorithms to analyze language and responses. I say this not to cause fear – because I really don’t think it’s scary (I work with this stuff all day). It’s just reality at this point – if the data is there, on their own platform, of course they’re going to suck it all up.

        Also, here’s a guide to getting rid of your timeline posts ->

        You can also go a little further with addons to remove friends, groups, etc. It’s mostly for people who are serious about getting off Facebook.

        As for me, I don’t mind. I still use FB to reach an audience, and it’s a useful tool… with relatively minor drawbacks.

          Thank P.S. I am pretty much in the same boat. Plus, I handle several FB pages for clients, so I won’t be jumping off soon.

          For those who are contemplating it though, this is useful information. 🙂
