If that is aimed at me you couldn't be more wrong
I use adblock on everything
.I see no ads
Of course crap appears on my FB feed even if I report and block it but it's no different so seeing billboards when driving.It doesn't influence what I buy so I have no problem with it.Ditto Twitter/Instagram.
Why is everyone so hung up on social media and especially Facebook being the devils child?
1.Switch on your laptop/PC/Tablet...it's being monitored/tracked/stored
2.Switch on your mobile phone....monitored/tracked/stored
3.Use your Bank/Credit card....monitored/tracked/stored
4.Car have inbuilt Satnav?.....monitored/tracked/stored
Basically if you're alive you are
being watched but hey let's just blame Facebook
Reminds me of a in-joke on Bikeradar Forums.Anything wrong in the World....blame Wiggle.
