......Face Book, it was getting boring and time consuming, alot of my contacts are'nt posting as much especially family, so we'll all have to rely on email or the telephone/mobile more:))

I didn't think you could delete once in their claws always in their claws. I only found option to deactivate. :-S

Luckily enough I do not have a lots of 'friends' on FB and those I have are like me, we still phone one another.

But we all find FB great for sharing our old photos etc.,

It is possible to totally delete the account but quite complicated

Morning AnnG:)

l did too but they are'nt putting photo's on much now, son and d i l don't like adding pics of the children,although they know l had added some, same with daughter and relations abroad.....it was brill for all of that.

l did get fed up with 2 contacts, all l got was how poorly they felt (again) and silly jokes and photo's of a friend who has alzheimers, awful photo's to be honest, if she knew she was being shown to the world like that, she would be so hurt:((

Shame but there you go:((

Mostly my contacts don't put photos on as I don't either, I would never put photos of Grandchildren on there although the older ones put photos of themselves on sometimes.

I do see some posts that to me are not interesting or boring but I skip over those. You can always hide people so you don't receive their posts, or are you talking personal messages? Most of my 'friends' are family or GR/exGR.

I don't use FB on a regular basis but have I been contacted a number of times by people I had lost contact with. I was contacted last year by my second cousin asking me to go to her wedding. It was so nice that this delightful young woman had thought about me, we now keep in touch. <3

A couple of years ago I found a friend on FB who I used to work with 45+ years ago and had lost contact with. We are now in regular contact with eachother and met up last year.

I occasionally put photos of my 2 grandchildren on. Is this unwise, even though I have all my settings to 'friends only', do you think?
