    Is it just me.

    Is it just me, or, is facebook, and all of those social media platforms, nothing but ignorant, toxic, narcissistic, control freak BS, that is simply not worth it on any level? All i see is people and 100000 selfies, and saying how great their lives are, and saying ignorant rubbish, and getting...

    How do you sell things on Facebook?

    I'm low on money this month and I have some extra things I thought I might be able to sell, maybe on Facebook Marketplace, but I don't know how and covid 19 isn't helping. I don't have a car so I can't just bring stuff to other people if they want it, and I know they won't come to my apartment...

    Why do autistic adults & parents of autistic kids often not get along?

    Over many months I've engaged with parents of autistic kids who have been scared by what they've seen from autistic adults on social media, and many autistics who have also been discouraged from engaging. These problems are not so noticeable on a forum like this due to the active moderation of...

    Question about group chat with friends..

    So, I'm in a group chat on FB messenger with 5 or 6 other people. The last day or two, whenever I send a meme, one participant in particular (although one other has done it once too) replies by just sending back the same meme. I'm confused, and I don't understand why they're just sending them...

    Endless "friend requests" on Facebook from Swedish women!

    Fortunately I know from a previous voluntary job not to accept random requests even if they have mutual friends, but this is getting a bit weird, been having a massive flood of "friend requests" all week from various female members, when I check their page to see exactly who they are they're...

    Idiots on Facebook who just "like" my posts instead of responding or trying to help!

    Topic. It does get rather annoying, last night I did a post asking if anyone knows the phone number for the Chinese Karaoke Restaurant in Town, as the number I looked up on Google last week doesn't work, and 2 guys just "liked" my post without even trying to help! Why bother? Unlike some...

    Using Social Media

    Hi everybody, I've been thinking about social media a lot recently and was wondering if and how you use it? Most of the people I know add people that they have just met, people that they shared a class with at school (but never spoke to), their colleagues and bosses. I'm quite a private...

    tbh: Another App to not use.

    Facebook buys app for teens to be nice Facebook bought this social media app that teenagers use to be nice to each other. I won't be downloading it because a) I'm far too old. b) I guess no one would tag me on it anyway so I would feel more isolated.

    The end of social networks and social endeavour for me

    For many years since I started on social networks, firts on hi-5 and then facebook a part of me never got fully conected to the social paradigm those sites include. I've never been a very social guy, and I'm more of a solitaire and isolated person. My therapists told me to at least stay in...

    Aspies and Social Media

    Hi, I don't do social media because I feel that it's primarily inconsequential talk that goes on it or that it's sharing very personal information with strangers. I recognize that not everyone goes about it that way, though. Having said that, how do you feel about socializing via social...
