Yes Facebook seemed ok at first, but the company seems to be corporate evil now. I never looked back after they locked my account. Though lately the add revenues reported by the site Vs. the actual people on the site. Seems way off, or a scam in some way to the advertisers. From banning atheist pages and keeping radical religious pages up, to banning some names and requiring people to give photo id so they can mine that also. Facebook just seems to biased and even evil in ways. Just my 2 cents

Who Really Controls What You See in Your Facebook Feed—and Why They Keep Changing It   

Who Really Controls What You See in Your Facebook Feed—and Why They Keep Changing It    | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Every time you open Facebook, one of the world’s most influential, controversial, and misunderstood algorithms springs into action. It scans and collects everything posted in the past week by each of your friends, everyone you follow, each group you belong to, and every Facebook page you’ve liked.
