    Unlike you, I read a post that simply asks a question as part of normal conversation and do not assume it's arguing.
    The question remains, why would you think and treat FB any different to your phone insofar as only bringing it out when you're in the mood. But never mind, I really don't need you to answer, it was merely conversational and not important at all.

    It says on the Net that between 66% and 45% of people get their news from social media like facebook. I don't believe that is even close. Nobody is that stupid. I'd say maybe 1%. We, however can figure it out right here. Does anyone on Teakdoor get their news primarily (majority of the time and content) from Facebook? Speak up. I am willing to bet no one. A good example of fake news is saying people get their news from Facebook.

    Yeah, because a straw poll of an insignificant back water Thai expat forum is going to be conclusive and statistically valid...

    ^ Source?

    It says on the Net ...



    The "Net" says a lot. Sometimes the "Net" says the opposite of the "Net".

    But anyway, the "Net" told me a few minutes ago that "As of August 2017, two-thirds (67%) of Americans report that they get at least some of their news on social media"

    and ... in 2016, "Two-thirds of Facebook users (66%) get news on the site".

    So, somewhat different to what you posted. But by all means post your sources if they show differently.

    Personally, FB for me is just a way to keep in touch (by message). I never post. and, judging by the 'live-my-boring-life-through-FB-as-if-anyone-cares' posts of a lot of those on there, maybe they should stop posting too!

    Hasn't it degenerated into shameless self promotion from people who think they can sing,, fake concerns based on friends posts, endless challenges to be 'one of only 2% who will re-post- something... and we know who you are', self-created drama purely for attention, and now endless adverts for something you just must have..... its becoming harder to find anything other than what I have just described, largely because real friends stuff, parties, celebrations, wedding pix and details don't in themselves generate any income. Did i also read now that FB is arbitrarily deciding which posts from your 'list' are actually displayed?

    If it wasn't for the fact that all the photo-club sites I am a member of keep sending me an endless supply of 'tasteful portraits' to 'review' I probably wouldn't use it at all...!

    So maybe I'm not correct but no one I know gets news of import from Facebook. Social stories and stories about cats. So what medium really is a primary news source for the largest number of Americans? We can find an answer to that in a different Pew Research report, this one from June, titled, "The Modern News Consumer." It compares the percentage of U.S. adults who "often" get news from various platforms. By this metric, television remains the dominant medium by a significant margin, at 57 percent. A distant second is "online," at 38 percent. This combines the 18 percent who get news often from social media with an overlapping 28 percent who get it often from "news websites/apps." Third on the list is radio at 25 percent, followed by print newspapers at 20 percent.

    So really it's 18% and not 40 or 50 or 60% and I would think that 18% is cat news.

    How many people really get their news from Facebook?

    Yep, it's all that. But it's more and we can choose to ignore what we are not interested in. I get posts that my son makes, not with me in mind, but all his friends and family. I like seeing that and can respond or not. I also get posts from friends (perhaps bored housewife-types?) that repeat the BS "only 2 % can answer this" or "Type amen if you agree..."...piffle that is easily ignored and scrolled past. Just as on this forum: scroll past it if it doesn't interest you, jump in with opinions or snide comments if it does.

    I read that, and upon reflection it seems that it may be true...bizarre when you consider what FB was created for.

    It's good for staying in contact with the friends I have around the world and work, but that's about it. Prefer to use Skype for family stuff and got them on Wechat before I started making directions to China. Work wise, I don't mind adding parents and colleagues-98% of them are very respectful and professional about not bothering me outside of work. That said, I am happy to answer any questions outside of work to either parents of kids or coworkers- it's never taken more than 5 mins and keeps things harmonious- that's priceless 555

    Facebook share price drop wipes $US119 billion from company's value; Mark Zuckerberg's net worth
    falls by $US15 billion


    Facebook has lost $US119 billion in value overnight. It is among the biggest single-day falls in US stock market history.
    The 19 per cent loss is the social media giant's worst trading day since it went public in 2012.
    As a consequence, the personal fortune of Facebook's chief executive Mark Zuckerberg fell by about $US15 billion.


    The drop in Mr Zuckerburg's net worth is roughly equal to the wealth of the world's 81st-richest person currently Japanese businessman
    Takemitsu Takizaki, according to Forbes real-time data.

    It occurred after Facebook executives predicted the company would face years of lower profit margins, while reporting its quarterly results yesterday.


    Facebook's second-quarter results were the first sign that a new European privacy law and a string of privacy scandals involving Cambridge Analytica
    and other app developers were hitting the company's business.


    The company also warned that the toll would not be offset by revenue growth from emerging markets and the company's Instagram app, which has
    been less affected by privacy concerns.

    Some analysts said Facebook's issues would not be easily resolved.


    "Unlike Netflix, whose quarterly shortfall we saw as temporary, here we see an evolution of the story, albeit a portion of which we expected,"
    BMO Capital Markets analysts Daniel Salmon said.


    Others, however, saw a silver lining in Facebook's emphasis on more engaging content and its promotion of stories on its News Feed, which
    would support revenue over the longer term.

    Our fingerprints never fade from the lives we touch
