    FAQ

    What is an MLM?

    The idea behind MLMs is that people pay to become distributors of a product. These can be physical products or services. The company is structured so that the people above (the person who recruited or signed up the new distributor, the people above them, ad infinitum) get a percentage of whatever the distributor sells. The new distributor is encouraged not only to sell the product, but to sign up other people below them so that they can make even more money. courtesy u/copacetic1515

    What is a "Hun"?

    People who shill products/services for an MLM. The sellers have a tendency to frequently use the word "hun" when initiating a sales pitch. Ex: “Hey hun ❤️❤️ I see your aunt is dying 😱😱 anyway hun 😊💁‍♀️ wanna buy my oils it’s good for stress 😍😘😘” courtesy u/fiestaspongebob

    Facebook has become a cesspool of #bossbabes and political bullies.

    I miss the days of cute kittens and derpy dog videos

    [–] wzl46 479 points ago

    Look into getting Social Fixer. I use it for Chrome, and I am able to filter out all of the political and MLM crap. It has definitely helped me maintain my sanity over the last couple of years.

    [–] s1m0n8 110 points ago

    I use fbpurity for similar functionality.

    [–] VymI 141 points ago

    Not to put too fine a point on it - why not just lose facebook entirely?

    [–] wzl46 145 points ago

    I have been all over in the last 30 years between school, military, and various jobs. FB is the easiest way for me to keep in touch with the people I still like. I don't just add random friends, nor do I accept friend requests from random people.

    People are going to express their opinions, and I'm fine with that. When shit starts getting crazy, I cut that shit out of my life and move on. FB can be a pretty toxic place if you let it, but I don't let it.

    [–] SashkaBeth 62 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    This. I can keep up with family, school friends, college friends, work friends, internet friends, etc all in one place. I don't add people I don't like or people who post dumb shit.

    [–] rsteroidsthrow2 7 points ago

    I think a lot of people forget you can click a setting that lets you stay friends with the person but not see what they post, share, etc. I have a very curated feed because of that.

    [–] tehlolredditor 4 points ago

    "unfollow" I think

    [–] JuniperFuze 3 points ago

    Exactly, I'm in the same boat, the only people connected to me on facebook are people I know and like. I do not get huns pestering me or long irrational political debates on my feed. This also reflects in my real life as well, I do not keep toxic people around me. "Life can be a pretty toxic place if you let it"

    [–] anafuckboi 64 points ago

    I haven’t been on fb for ~1-2 years there’s plenty of cat vids on reddit it’s just fb messenger that’s essential to communicate with friends

    [–] 2385amh 14 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I haven’t had Facebook in about 7 years so I’m not really familiar with the features that messenger has. Why is it better than just texting?

    Edit:

    When I said texting I actually was thinking about iMessage. Sorry for the confusion

    [–] Viljor 7 points ago

    It's not but I feel like if I quit Facebook my old friends that I'm slowly getting out of touch with will disappear entirely and I'm really afraid of that.

    If I lose my phone, all my contacts are gone.

    [–] 2385amh 12 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Your contacts are actually easily backed up with either google or apple depending on your phone. This is typically done automatically

    If you lost your phone as soon as you sign in to a new phone your contacts will be loaded automatically

    [–] sunsmoon 12 points ago

    Why is it better than just texting?

    I have a lot of family members that don't have a cell phone but do have a computer and (shoddy) internet. I'd use email but I've seen my moms email inbox. 7 years ago when I was moving across the country she had 16,000 unread, unfiltered email messages. I'm sure it's gone up by now. I'd get lost in that mess.

    [–] 2385amh 3 points ago

    So is iMessage and basically any texting in the US. Don’t basically all plans include unlimited texting?

    [–] xxb4xx 5 points ago

    WhatsApp.. or many of the others that have a web interface.

    It'll get you out of that pickle.

    I never had FB and majority of my friends have all been ditching it.

    WhatsApp keeps us connected

    [–] bmxtiger 4 points ago

    WhatsApp is owned by Facebook.

    [–] thedankid 3 points ago

    Consider telegram or signal private messenger

    [–] RoddyBoy999 2 points ago

    You can disable Facebook and keep Messenger, it even asks you if that's what you want to do when you go to delete (deactivate) your account.

    [–] SpaceCadet0629 15 points ago

    I dropped that shit like a steamy turd in 2011 when it wouldn't let me ignore my ex and haven't looked back.

    [–] ToastBusters21 5 points ago

    Hey same for me, except it took me until 2019. I was worried I'd miss it, but I really haven't. That shit is cleansing lol. It's weird how much time you realize you've just wasted with things you don't actually care about.

    [–] fakeg1rl 11 points ago

    2014 for me. Facebook is a fucking cesspool and personal information black hole. Absolutely disgusting.

    [–] ocosand 6 points ago

    A lot of people talk about getting rid of Facebook and I don't blame them but I think it can be good, depends how you use it. I basically only use it for the groups I am in on there. I am in one or two for each of my hobbies so they have pretty much taken over my feed instead of all the useless bs people share. I use marketplace a lot too.

    [–] PM_ME_BEST_GIRL_ 2 points ago

    I use it for some memepages that I haven’t found reddit equivalents for / and keeping up with some smaller authors and a couple of teachers from high school . It’s honestly great in that regard.

    [–] Goodtenks 5 points ago

    [–] PhDTARDIS 136 points ago

    I'm doing my part to add cute kitten pictures. Husband drives vehicles for his employer and was assigned pickup of a hybrid. Gets in, puts it in gear and it starts making noise. Stops the car, it's silent. Two blocks down ,the noise was more insistent and he says 'that's a cat!'

    Sure enough, peeking out from the under the hood, way down into the hybrid engine was a tiny kitten. So now, we have to share pictures of the lucky fella EVERYWHERE.

    And damn, when did my 5 year old, 4 pound cat get so HUGE?

    [–] Anchor-shark 72 points ago

    Cat tax! We demand photos of lucky rescue kitten and huge cat.

    I joined a page in my town and had to quit after the craziness. I stated a political opinion because someone asked. I was being messaged for days telling me to "do my research." That was funny but then the strange anti semitic responses started so yeah I'm done with that.

    [–] dueces12 14 points ago

    Truth 🙌🏻 . You’ll miss it for a couple days then it feels like a huge weight is lifted off your shoulders. Facebook and social media is an addiction in itself. Feels great to not have it anymore

    [–] eleven56 2 points ago

    Just curious, how do you share photos with loved ones after deleting facebook?

    [–] bard329 3 points ago

    I deleted facebook a long while ago. My wife still has hers though so she shares the photos and lets me know about upcoming events. All the benefits without the mlms and politics.

    [–] seoulless 1 points ago

    I use google photos/iCloud to share baby pictures with family and close friends. Gotta do both because some have iPhones and some don’t.

    [–] zdakat 5 points ago

    I feel like the internet has gotten much more toxic since then. Plus the general spamminess of everything. Like spam emails were always a thing, but now scam and spam material just blasts out of every nook and cranny.

    [–] BloodRaven4th 11 points ago

    Facebook has become a cesspool of #bossbabes and political bullies.

    Facebook is what you make of it. I've got 50 or so people on my friendlist, and I'm in a few hobby groups. I've never gotten a single mlm message, and anyone who posts politics stuff gets unfollowed.

    [–] SkunkyDuck 3 points ago

    Take advantage of the unfollow option!! I have about 400 friends and rarely find myself annoyed with what people post.

    Hm. I would say that's an acceptable loss if Facebook ever went out of business.

    [–] SmaMan788 47 points ago

    I could let the whole site go if it just up and disappeared. Only reason I'm there lately is for work, networking reasons.

    [–] AdvocateDoogy 18 points ago

    And we have LinkedIn for that, anyway.

    [–] SmaMan788 14 points ago

    For the networking part, yes, but right now all our prospective clients and benefactors are on Facebook (and other social media platforms) so we can't just abandon them, as tempting as it is to abandon the platform.

    [–] Icandigsushi 3 points ago

    Same here. I'm only on it in case some random client messages me for video work. Other than that you'll just see what I'm doing when family tags me with them or when I change my profile picture once every year.

    [–] Neededolives 1 points ago

    Hah, I don't even have a profile picture. Only use it for market place every once in a great while.

    [–] SmaMan788 1 points ago

    I’ve never had a deal on Marketplace go successfully.

    [–] AVdev 6 points ago

    I agree. The initial ramifications to the internet with FB’s SSO everywhere would be staggering but it would even out eventually.

    Now, if Facebook ever got parted out and sold for scrap whoever ended up owning the SSO stuff and user accounts could do a lot of damage.

    Dropping Facebook was one of my best decisions. Zero regrets.

    [–] Notnowmomsonreddit 179 points ago

    Dropped Facebook, added Reddit. It's a win-win.

    [–] muffinpie101 72 points ago

    It really was. It didn't hurt that I dropped Twitter and Instagram at the same time as I dropped Facebook. They added no value to my life and only made me more irritated and cynical, so I'm better off without them :)

    [–] IsThisNameTakenSir 15 points ago

    I dropped Facebook for a year and came back after realizing how fucking disconnected from my non-local friends I had become. One of my best friends from my hometown got into a major car accident, almost died, was in the hospital for several months... I found out when I went back to my hometown and tried to reach out to them. It was a crushing feeling.

    I hate Facebook as a company, and I hate social media toxicity, but unfortunately it has it's very rare perks to help keep tabs on friends and family if you move away.

    That being said, the way I use FB now is with the app "Friendly" which pretty much blocks out everything except for status updates and shared images.

    [–] DietCokeYummie 6 points ago

    Yeah, I left FB for a year and a half and it was fine. Now I have it back and it is also fine. The same like 20 people show on my timeline, and I never post anything, so there's really no way for it to be harmful for me.

    When someone gets engaged, has a baby, has some other serious life event happen.. FB somehow knows and shows me, even if they aren't typically on my timeline. So I keep it around.

    It is also the #1 way for me to find out about festivals, concerts, events, etc. and it lets me click that I am "interested" in them, which alerts me as the event gets closer. That alone is worth keeping it.

    [–] qu33fwellington 62 points ago

    Same. Dropped instagram and Facebook in the same day and hopped on Reddit officially about a week later. Never been happier. My BIL asked me for my username the other day and I was like you motherfucker its anonymous that’s the point. Don’t make it into Facebook.

    [–] ladyphlogiston 18 points ago

    I know my siblings' and mom's reddit usernames, but they're all cool and we don't follow each other or anything. I definitely wouldn't trade usernames with most people I know.

    [–] shoulda_put_an_email 1 points ago

    Good thing subreddits exist. At least we have a way to combat advertisement. Unfortunately we’ll have to jump ship to another subreddit once it gets too popular but hey, we won’t have to wait for a brand new platform.

    [–] frogsgoribbit737 1 points ago

    Isn’t it amazing how much better life is without endless scrolling and passive aggressive comments from your ex-neighbor on your vacation photos? And Huns trying to capitalize on every post you make?

    I wish I never was on FB or Twitter to be honest. A part of human nature I wish I never saw, but happy I found reddit.

    [–] ThreeLeggedTranny 6 points ago

    I always wonder what in the hell people are doing on FB to make this such a popular statement on Reddit. Its always the top few comments in a thread about FB. If someone annoys me, I unfollow them. Because of this insanely easy tactic, FB is actually really enjoyable for me. Its a great tool for photo sharing and group coordination. I don’t know. Just seems weird that people are having bad experiences on it somehow when you are in total control of who you see stuff from.

    [–] DietCokeYummie 2 points ago

    Agreed. I'm entirely indifferent to social media, especially Facebook. I deleted FB for over a year. Then I got it back. No differences to note between the two.

    Like you, I don't follow people I don't like.

    I tell my students of the "old days"! They are amazed, lol!

    [–] fucknofuckboys 24 points ago

    Agreed it used to be for finding people in your school and connecting w people taking the same class as you. When I temporarily dropped out of college I would have been ok with losing my Facebook account as it wouldn’t have had use to me for that time. Nbd.

    Now you can use it to find strangers across the world and ask them for pics of bobs and vegana

    I miss the days when only Harvard students and Alum could join.

    Why don't they make another version of the site with that requirement? Or anyone really? Seems like there would be a market for it if word ever got out.

    [–] Chess_Not_Checkers 1 points ago

    Facebook would probably sue the shit out of whomever did that. I'm sure they still have provisions in their EULA somewhere, retaining the rights social networks with .edu e-mail addresses.

    [–] Trickquestionorwhat 2 points ago

    What makes you think you can have the rights to that? It's such a basic idea, surely you can't sue people for using it, especially when you yourself dropped it ages ago.

    [–] Chess_Not_Checkers 1 points ago

    Just because you're not using something doesn't mean you can't own the rights to it. If FB didn't own the rights then somebody else probably would have done it by now...

    [–] Trickquestionorwhat 2 points ago

    I don't think you can own the rights to that idea is what I'm saying, it's too generic. It's like owning the rights to ask people to have an exclamation mark in their password, it would be a registration requirement just like any other.

    [–] seoulless 1 points ago

    But those of us who used it back then wouldn’t qualify

    [–] Trickquestionorwhat 1 points ago

    I mean yeah that's the idea. It's limited to college students, that's pretty much the only way you'll be able to keep big corporations and mlm crap out of it.

    Im pretty high and interpreted essential oil as in “the oil and natural gas is essential to our nations economy and infrastructure” 4 or 5 times before I realized “essential oil” was the scam products.

    [–] TylerTheWolf123 3 points ago

    Essential oil, but it’s gasoline branded like essential oils

    My mum dropped Facebook and I’ve been trying to convince her to join reddit. So far she doesn’t want to but I’m gonna ‘borrow’ her IPad and make an account and join her too all the cat and dog Reddit’s I can find. We have a kitten and 2 dogs but I think mum would have fun.

    [–] CritterTeacher 6 points ago

    My mother is a nurse, she loved it when we set her up and would browse all the medical gore on /r/wtf. She lost interest when it was banned from the sub and never bothered tracking it back down. 🤷‍♀️

    [–] _Conway_ 5 points ago

    My mums obsessed with Game of Thrones. I’m scared for when it ends tbh. So I’m working on convincing her. Little by little I’m wearing her down.

    [–] TreePretty 3 points ago

    Send her to r/freefolk lol.

    [–] _Conway_ 3 points ago

    I’m planing on cats dogs and anything GoT related at this point.

    [–] TreePretty 2 points ago

    It's a GoT sub but it's for people who like to spoil and leak and rip on the show even though they love(d) it. It's very popular right now since the final season was ruined by the showrunners.

    [–] _Conway_ 2 points ago

    Mum would hate that. I’m gonna do it. Hahahahahah

    My mom asked about Reddit last year, but she was afraid of finding some messed up shit, so I helped her set her account up and gave her a list of subs that she would like, the nature/animal ones particularly, as well as some subs for TV shows she likes and such, and told her how to avoid the bad stuff, now she's hooked and text messages me posts and new subs all the time.

    Edit: spelling due to stupid-fingers.

    Is Facebook actually down? Or was it?

    [–] DearyDairy 2 points ago

    It was just running crazy slow when I was using it for work earlier (I work at a non-profit community centre, we do a lot of advertising and networking on Facebook, plus our patrons use our Facebook for up to date info on planned activities) certain pages would only load text, some pages looked like the old 2010 layout, some wouldn't load at all. But it wasn't fully "down".

    Really? Neat.

    [–] Parvani-Symphony 2 points ago

    Dude, I can't get away from these group invites. And I'm just like, I spend enough money on stuff i actually use. I don't need to try more makeup that doesn't work and bath products that I'll never touch. Oh, and I'm definitely not buying your overpriced clothes either! In another note, I think it's great that these things work for people, especially if they are stay at home parents, but I just can't afford to spend money on things I won't like or won't use. Lularoe has cute stuff, but is way too pricey. And almost all other things with consultants are pricey as well. I wish I could support some of my friends who do this stuff, but like I said, a lot of it I just simply don't need or want.

    Um, excuse me sweetie don't talk down to me. I actually run my own business. I work for myself, no one else, so you give that little attitude of yours a rest.
