with a fake name. I use it to “like” local businesses and restaurants so that I know about events, specials etc. I do not post anything personal or share photos of myself or my kid etc. I don’t have any FB “friends” as a result. I have a FB page for our family business too. I absolutely hate it but we get a crap ton of free advertising through it that translates into sales. I do not allow any political opinions on the page or entertain FB messenger propaganda that comes our way. Anybody that tries that gets an earful from me. I’ve never understood the FB fascination...it seems bizarre to want to post personal information about my life.
