I searched for this and there were over 2000 threads. I looked at 5 pages and gave up.
I came off Facebook 2 years ago for 2 reasons -
1. A big family row that split us into 2 sides. It became awkward with friend requests from cousins (who were basically snooping).
2, I was fed up of increasing posts regarding where people are located in town ie checking in, maps showing the route and time that someone has walked
or cycles. The worst offenders being those that link Youtube with their Facebook account. I am not interested in every single video you watch!
Having been recently diagnosed with ME/CFS after a 11 month illness I heard that there were ME/CFS Groups on Facebook that has really good
information/advice. I made a new account with a nickname and my usual email address. I have no friends on this account and not filled in optional
information fields. Within a few days I was receiving friend suggestions. They were not random and consisted of most of my previous friends from 2
years ago. Coincidence? I think not!
The facebook groups did not contain any information that I have not read on other forums so have deleted my account again.
