Facebook Really Wants You to Come Back
Facebook, which has more than 2 billion people logging in monthly, has never failed to grow its user base. To beat investors’ expectations consistently on user numbers, it’s just as important for the company to retain people like Gorantala as it is to recruit new members. People who are logging into Facebook less often—but aren’t fully disconnected—are noticing more and more frequent prompts to come back, sometimes multiple times a day, via emails or text messages reminding them what they’re missing out on, according to screenshots and reports from users around the world. Gorantala, who eased off his Facebook usage because of privacy concerns, said his security prompt comes “whenever I don’t log in for a few days.”

Even with regular users, Facebook has become thirstier for posts. The social network’s reminder boxes at the top of the news feed, which often show memories or anniversaries of ...

Like anything else, FB can and will be abused. We often see people advertising very trivial events in their lives, as if it's a sort of public diary in the vein of Samuel Pepys, or worse, posting theological nonsense one dares not criticize, at least if one wants to remain "friends."

In America at least, finding a friend you can disagree with while still remaining on speaking terms is difficult indeed.

We subscribe to it primarily to find out what's going on with relatives, but one has to sift through a lot of "noise."

I've had a long love/hate relationship with Facebook and have found that the only way I can use it is to limit my time and interchanges with others while on it. At first I hated the invasion of privacy, then they tightened that up, so I was satisfied. Then they messed with my newsfeed and manipulated my feelings... So, I unfollowed people, pages and left groups. Now I find little prompts popping up asking me stupid questions. Right now I'm keeping my account open to contact family members and friends. I think as Christians we need to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves as we navigate social media and frankly, live in this world.

I was making a general statement about FB users, not about anyone in particular, including you.
I am not on Facebook myself but I have family that are and I hear the stuff that happen's. Believe me, not to much stuff goes on there that is good. I have seen family members fight, Christians talk behind backs, mother's glued to it instead of taking care of their children, ect.
I am glad it's working out for you, Mr. Unprofitable, but for most of the world, IT'S A TRAP!!

Again, I was making a general statement, and was for sure not addressing you.

As for the 24/7 thing, have you ever seen/heard of some people who like literally spend all day telling people what they are doing?
Obviously not everyone does this but it is a good majority.
Also, I will try saying this nicely, please get your head out the sand and be aware!

What ever happened to writing letters and talking face to to face with real people!!
Except "everybody" is not on your friends list. This is no different than friends and family getting together and catching up on how things are going.

For instance one of the people on my list is a missionary family in Pau Pau New Guinea, so their post are a day or more old, but we obviously can't have face to face time and letters would be a very ineffective way to communicate.

If your getting nothing but gossip on your Facebook feeds, you need new friends.

Nobody is up 24/7 posting on Facebook and I haven't seen anyone telling what they do with all their minutes during the day.

Simple solution to what the article is about, just stop notifications coming from Facebook to your phone. It is a battery drain anyway.

Facebook has a monetary incentive to get people spend lots of time on their website. Standard business procedure.

If you don't like Facebook fine, their are many reasons to have issues with the site. I think you should avoid blanket statements about those who use it.
