Haven't logged-in to Facebook for awhile. But there are some decades old friends who I and well, she still depend on and love each other's advice. Never any romanticism, just great friends. So I sign in to tell her some tough stuff I may be going through for advice; and to see her status and maybe I could help... and I mean maybe we suck but that's not the point, the point is that my visits are moral and beloved, and one-to-one as either of any desire it. So about 6 humans/headers should be able to do a message to me. I have no idea if my own mom has a Facebook thing. No interest.

Yet this, Face Recognition/no human was there, WAITING...

Introducing Face Recognition For More Features
Hi David, we’re always working to make Facebook better, so we're adding more ways to use face recognition besides just suggesting tags. For example, face recognition technology can do things like:

• Find photos you're in but haven't been tagged
• Help protect you from strangers using your photo
• Tell people with visual impairments who's in your photo or video

You control face recognition. This setting is on, but you can turn it off any time, which applies to features we may add later.

-The Facebook Team

So on by default. Opt-out is the positive (intentional) move instead.

And, again, I sign out as much as possible but there's still a couple Facebook friends who I love. Sure I'll opt-out of this naked horrid affront of Facebook. But maybe I should even just burn all of my internet presence down to the ground.

And not to mention Google and Facebook and Amazon Billions of dollars in US government contracts.

Yeah, I'm human in ways and decades and mental problems and personal morals that few here would give a **** about. So no biography.

Other than in the past, again, as a worker (later supervisor), I was a friend to a female human and helped her mentally and financially, and she later did the same, and that is a bond to this day. Plus a lot of wacky drunk hijinks. Friday pizza and spades.

And ailing. She is, more than me. But has a wonderful daughter, who I'd met long ago. But also an amazing granddaughter now.

But struggles to get around. It's tough for me to of my best friends in high school, his dad died of an auto accident. I didn't know what to do...I avoided him. To my shame. Years later I told him that and he...welll....he heard it. Which meant my actions at that time did give him pain.

So...Facebook or not...or maybe whatever...maybe I'm just an *******......

[eta] Not that this impugns you at all or I mean it as a strawman. You're also a good person. I riffed....Sorry Bijou

Facebook is counter-productive to all my efforts to avoid the people I've lost contact with in the first place and versa vice.
