Are you on a phone? You probably gave it permission to use your GPS/Location so it gets the information automatically. I would think that's a default setting (I'm not intimately familiar with it).

What say you?

No the world needs less social media. To many half witted retards out there commenting on crap they know nothing about, using words from someone else, pretending to be something they're not.


Get off Facebook, your life will be better for it. You don't need an alternate social smugness circle jerking circle of nobodies blowing sunshine up your ass.


Be quiet.

And here you are, posting on a form of social media. Oh the irony.

The problem they only censor Republican sites.......yet allow cop killers to speak, dog fighting pictures to post, animal torture to post, and the pictures of thugs slicing open the throat of cops.......how is this reasonable censoring?


When people have to petition for FB to remove certain accounts that post abuse, there is a problem!

Oh please, "the irony". Been waiting all day for that? Nobodies blowing sunshine up my ass on here, it's more a discussion than the usual posting of pictures of Marilyn Monroe holding a candle telling me about "having me at my worst-best" type of crap that's on Facebook.


Nothing brings an impotent narcissist to orgasm faster than detecting hypocrisy in someone.


Proud of you.

There are people who posted very racist stuff on facebook. It shocked me because I figured "okay, you have Blacks on your friends list and they might see it". There is stuff I would never post. I ended up deleting some people.

Like I said, oh the irony. Whining about social media while posting on social media. Too freakin' funny. Good job!

Why would they not make it hard for their competition???? The entire point is to make money; they're not going to just stand around and watch others take it away.

I have to 100% disagree about people changing sites. What happened with MySpace? AIM? Live journal? Xanga? ICQ? These were all major players that have since become nobodies. People will change and adapt when something better comes along. That's the key. You have to create something better than Facebook to take their users away.

I actually liked MySpace for two reasons: you could have your own song for your page & you could have background designs or photos.
