Platform full of ludicrous people. How fake news and stupid trends are spread through the Internet. Repeated and toxic content. Such bad privacy policy. Only decent purpose is its messaging feature because of the fact everyone has it.

Hi, My name Andrew, I have been using AlternativeTo.Net for a long period of time, It served me very well and I got a lot of useful information from it, so I decided to make a review on it. As I see you are a user of this website so I would really appreciate some feedback if you don't mind, Thanks. The Website Review - https://bit.ly/2A9YvL1

We need to stop thinking this is a good service and wake up! Facebook have been using us for too long (for their own interests) and we need to find alternatives. There is a lot of good ones popping up around us, but we... the users need to be the change and take our friends with us. We need to support the creators that is trying to bring the secure alternatives to the public.

I am very disappointed with this Orwellian network.

I've left my account to rot, and will only use it when absolutely necessary, maybe to contact a long-lost relative...or something. I hope that day never comes. Well, I'm not hoping that a family member would never contact me--I'm not that heartless--but I hope they contact me through a more privacy-respecting platform.

The past and present prevalence of Facebook since 2007? is a testament to the changing perspective of our view on the Internet and anonymity as a whole. I've encountered stories of people being locked out of their Facebook account until they provide an image of their face. What happened to when we taught our kids to keep themselves private on the Internet, for fear of bad people lurking around? Now, we're actively encouraged to share everything about us, and with just a few strokes of the keyboard and a few clicks, anyone can find out a lot on just about whoever they want. It's no secret that Facebook is in the business to sell our data to advertisers.

I'll set the privacy thing aside, and move onto the next issue: censorship. Whether you agree or disagree with the idea that Facebook should censor people on its platform, the fact of the matter is that it has, it does, and it most likely will continue to. That's something to keep in mind if you ever plan on making a platform for yourself on Facebook.

Alright, now on to the actual website experience itself...

It's okay. Sometimes I remember wishing that it didn't change its interface so often. I think it hasn't changed in a while, but only time will tell when another shake-up will occur.

I don't like the fact that they shoved Messenger down the throats of mobile Facebook users, but you can read my thoughts about it on that page.

Oh, yeah. Facebook makes it really difficult to figure out how to delete your account. No, not deactivate it, DELETE it.

EDIT: How could I have forgotten the time where I was getting notifications from a page I could swear I never liked and followed? That was definitely a strange occurrence.


Well, that's about all I can think of. My final thoughts? I hope Facebook crashes and burns in the near future. The way I see it, the fact that so many people have an account demonstrates that we must change how we think about and use the internet, and quickly.

As interesting the concept of social media is, the Facebook of today is not what it used to be: privacy issues, fake news, extremism (whether Islamic or right-wing), slow response to user reports of trolling and cyberbullying … just to name a few.

This service, like Google, definitely isn't 'free'. You don't pay money, but you do pay with your information. If you use Facebook or Google, then you have no privacy, period. You're the product. Pass.

Facebook is spyware. When making a new account it requires you to snap a live photo of yourself otherwise you can't continue. This is followed by the stupid capcha verification which is far more annoying than secure. Now my wall is full fraudulent stories shared from junk sites like CollectiveEvolution.

**Facebook is a headache on mobile devices. **If I set my browsers layout to mobile I can't view my messages without downloading the FB Messenger app which completely I despise. Setting the browser layout to desktop messes up the display making it unusable.

Why is Facebook so dame SLOOOOOOW???? I have video feeds disabled so why does it take so long to load?

IKR that sucks they force you to add a picture of your face, and it takes days to verify for some people!

Whatever you think about Facebook for security, privacy, political, free speech, hate speech, advertising, and a dozen other issues, it's definitely on it's way out. Good riddance.

Facebook has violated public trust on multiple accounts. They have sold your private messages and all information about you to big companies. They continue to do this and spread false "news" throughout their website. I would highly recommend you keep away from this website and Facebooks other ip: Instagram. We did however get the JavaScript react framework thanks to Facebook.

Censors the side of news they disagree with (wrong think)

This is the worst of all. Facebook collect data on you even if you don't have an account through super cookies and like buttons you find on the web! They sell your data and most people don't even realize this and they keep feeding the beast!
