I don't use facebook for my general life. I'm not facebook friends with my actual friends or family. Most don't even know I have an account. I own an electric car and am a member of some facebook EV (electric vehicle) groups. I'm also on some forums. I find myself using facebook less and less. I prefer to click the new posts and pick a subject rather than scrolling and scrolling. With facebook, if you're not online a lot it's easy to miss a good post. Also I find the search feature on facebook to be all but useless.
Wow, I sound like a grumpy old man.
Not saying people shouldn't use it it's just not for me.
Now get off my lawn.

Facebook's algorithm determines what you see. It's not presented by what is the latest. That's why I have to keep scrolling through stuff I've already scrolled through to get to something I want to see.
I've yet to find it, but I did find out that my sister-in-law had two cups of coffee this morning.

You are correct...FB is not for everyone. Only interested parties need apply. I did not realize I was on your lawn, as I thought this was an open forum. 😇

Snapchat would be better. Where all the kids are going these days. Your comments disappear after a short time so when I say something stupid or grumpy it will vanish shortly.

That wasn't meant as a shot at you. I was trying to make fun of myself for sounding like a cranky technophobe. Sorry if I offended you, or made you feel unwelcome. That was not my intention.
