Groups keep people on Facebook, even when they hate Facebook. [Heather Kelly/WaPo]
@MitchWagner Uurgh. So true. I hate Facebook and everything the company does, but (here in the UK at least) Facebook groups are the way archery clubs communicate. It's entrenched.
@marramgrass not messages wrapped around an arrow?
@cn Can't speak for others, but that level of precision is totally beyond me 🎯
@marramgrass I'm coming around to the view that it's fine to use Facebook for its virtues while working for change. That work is often political.
@MitchWagner I find it a difficult environment in which to find the virtue 🙁
@marramgrass I belong to a couple of groups I like, and I love using it to keep in touch with friends and family who I otherwise don't get to see or talk to, generally because they live thousands of miles away.
@MitchWagner Sorry if I sounded dismissive. I’m glad it enables that contact for you.
I’m no Facebook snob, really. I’ve a number of old friends with whom my main contact these days is Instagram “by Facebook” messages. And others on FB Messenger.
@marramgrass I was not offended. When you're active on Facebook, you get a thick skin. :)
