Like SMS text…? You can’t text their phone number?
Because my phone thinks the numbers are US numbers. It ignores the country code or the + in the beginning. So if i try to text the number it goes to someone in the US or not delivered. The countries I tried to text like this was Denmark and Estonia.

NPR actually had a story on WhatsApp this afternoon. Had no clue it was so prolific and it’s use was so wide spread. Ignore me folks, just an entitled westerner here lol.

I left fakebook over a year, maybe two by now, ago & honestly felt like my life got a little better.
It seemed as if this big negative force suddenly just vanished and was no longer hanging over me.
Yeah, I know... Cool starry bra.

ceasing use of social media especially facebook has proven to improve peoples's mood. any competent therapist would suggest to a patient that they stop using it, if the patient's mood was in question whatsoever

Facebook is cancer. It was OK early on but got old real quick once everyone and their mom joined. It's difficult to completely quit though because some friends and family insist on using it to communicate but surely the majority of "users" are inactive at this point.

I use IG to jerk off once in a while.

IG is porn for 12 year olds too dumb to look at actual porn.

I only started using it like 2 years ago to follow some musicians and artists I like or to find new music/art…but yeah. IG, like all other social media is cancer. Posts occasionally has some utility and depth but it’s all an artificial, fake veneer over rampant consumerism and monetization.

Yet, I still use it. Fuck me.

FB has been a difficult one for me to drop - as people shy away from forums (which tend to have better knowledge) and move to FB “groups” which still have some of that knowledge, but are fucking awful to search and build a community.

Too bad Twitter wasn’t down. I’m not sure how anyone uses that cesspool.

It's been about a year since I used Facebook. The first day or two I dropped it, it felt weird to not pick the phone up to get that dopamine drip, but I revisited it about a month later, scrolled, and it just felt gross seeing all the nonsense people post. I don't think people even care about the things they post, why should I?

The only reason I have a facebook account nowadays is for Quest 2... and the novelty of that thing wore off pretty quick considering how enamored I was with it when I first got it. I'd not have an account today if it weren't for it.

Pretty suspicious how the outage coincided with the FB "whistleblower" calling for more government regulation and censorship while echoing US imperialist talking points...

Mark has a reputation for hiding his evidence, whether it’s by not using notebooks anymore to store ideas (where is he storing his ideas now, or in who?), and deleting his chats from a chat history, leading to chats where people look like they are on long rants by themselves.

so if this was an attempt to wipe all evidence related to the 1/6 insurrection, and potential ties to major sponsors (ATT, for example),

I wouldn’t be surprised in the least. It’s par for the course.
