Facebook asks users for nude photos in project to combat revenge porn

There have been a lot of people that are down on FB but let me give you another perspective.
I am a former military child. We moved every 2-3 years. We were ripped away from our friends and "home" every 2-3 years.
FB has been a godsend for people like me. It is an easy way to stay in touch no matter where in the world you are.
My entire graduating class of 60 all still keeps in touch with the exception of 2 people. We graduated longer ago than most people are old on this site! That in itself is amazing!
Now don't get me wrong, I know what you are saying about the dopamine stuff. I know a large family that all lives together. They all like each others photos and comment on it, yet they all live with each other, which I think is weird. I also think it is weird when people like their own photos, it makes me laugh every time.
More than anything else, I have learn some true colors of people by what they post. There has been some stuff that has truly shocked me by relatives and close friends, that I would have never known, especially during the election. I really learned who was very closed minded and who was downright crazy!

Facebook would be awesome if I was 12. Showing off my new GI Joes and Transformers. But I'm not 12...and making juvenile "adults" jealous doesn't quite do anything for me soooo it's only ATS and YouTube for me.
Both for the news and the lulz.
It's not that I'm "scared" of being tracked or watched or need privacy. I just genuinely don't care about some online persona everyone is pretending to be...That s*it ain't real.
But do what you want I won't stop you. Show pictures of whatever and get all the attention in the world...have a freaking ball. It's almost like LARPing for some. I already played online RPGs in my teen years and have grown up since.

How far we've come... and THIS I blame social media on. No one thinks any more. No one investigates. If it's not on YT or Twitter, or if it IS... then it's as far as anyone needs to go. Post it, ask about it. never actually put the effort in.
