Had a lot of fun friends.
A lot of family all over the planet is on there.
Was in a few health support groups and become known as the go-to guy to research things about which people wondered. Was one of the moderator staff in one group and on one page. I owned a group.
A number of model train, miniatures game, kite, model rocket, outfits are on there. NASA, with several pages for specific installations, such as Wallops Island, which announces when live video of launches will be. Same for ESA and Ariane. Model Railroad Craftsman magazine is on there. Garden Railways is on there.
True, social media does have some legitimate criticisms against it; however, when you find the right people in the right places, some very good information can be learned and shared.
But, over last weekend, it hit the 'enough is enough' level.
Deactivated account for several days, then the other day started the Delete process. Don't log in for a few days and then account vanishes in to the aether. Supposedly.

Update: A Facebook representative responded to say that this "ask" feature has been rolled out in waves to users since January, though when asked pointedly whether this was in the form of the obvious "ask" button that is now live across the site, or previously reported functionality buried in users' profiles, the representative was unable to clarify. Our additional questions about how "private" response data would be handled, and why Facebook made the change, remained unanswered.
Bold by me.

That clinched the deal, Adios Mark Z., sir, I'm gone.
Will miss the people, some dear friends were made. From all over the planet. But I am done with the platform. Done.
