Only use Facebook to keep in touch with your friends. Just make sure to keep everything hidden and on private. I've shot myself in the foot a few times from girls creeping on my profile and seeing things I don't want them to see.

RE: Facebook
I've got two Facebook pages. One for my friends and social proofing raising acquaintances, and one that's the "backburner". This one includes girls abroad and local that I want to keep checks on should I pop by their place on the globe. I fill it up with old acquaintances that I really don't have any connection to and random models as padding.

Why are you bumping year old threads on topics that have already been extensively covered on the forums and in Roosh's blog? Furthermore, why are you providing a puzzlingly generic description of facebook?

Haha, that's a spambot posting generic content. Probably trying to drive traffic to or increase the search ranking of the link in his profile. You're demanding answers from a robot.

RE: Facebook
I know there's been many threads on facebook but none particularly on de-facebooking yourself and how that has helped/hindered your game afterwards;
I decided I was procrastinating too much on facebook to no real end, most people on there who are my "friends" are at most occassional contacts and are of little/zero value to me and the few people on there who do mean something to me, already have my contact details anyway and know where to find me
It hasn't really aided my game in any significant way, besides many of the women I know on facebook are complete attention whores with multiple beta orbiters
And to cap it all off, there's an ex of mine there who I still have some lingering one-itis issues with, so I figured it was time to unplug from the facebook world

anyone else done the same, and if so, have you found it better/worse gamewise once you've came off facebook?

I don't friend a girl on facebook until I've fucked her.

It keeps her waiting and when you finally add her it is a CONQUEST.

Not just a number.

Always swoop before adding a girl, unless you aren't going to swoop her, but then again why add her if you aren't going to swoop her?

"The onion" is a comedy channel that seems to be a secret red pill dissident revolutionary movement in disguise.

Their latest video parody of children whose entire lives are on faceook is so accurate and realistic, it's not even funny in the normal way it should be.

I think even if you're gaming girls who would find you weird for not having an online presence, Facebook isn't strictly necessary in 2018. A lot of people are primarily on Instagram/WhatsApp.

Facebook is a jewish run organisation who buy, trade, and sell the souls of real people.

Most people on it, gave away their souls (and that of their children) for free.

This should actually be a public service announcement rather than an obscure comedy video.

RE: Facebook
I don't use FB. I'm currently travelling where some Muay Thai gyms that I want to contact regarding prices, have only FB contact details.

In the past I never had a problem setting up an account under fake names. In 2019 it's a different story....

Each time I create an account, an hour later I get locked out and have to upload a photo. Ive uploaded a photo 3 times now (of people I know) on 3 different FB accounts where each time my account gets disabled. Next it asks me to upload an ID photo if I choose to query why it was disabled.

Is there a work out in 2019 to create a fake FB account.

They use machine learning now and surprise hurdles to vet new accounts.

Do it on a completely different computer that you've never used before, from a new IP address, with a new photo, too.

TOR (and public VPN services) are considered low-quality IP addresses by Facebook and are more likely to be disabled. When I had to create new accounts, I was most successful using a residential IP (DSL, cable, etc).

RE: The Facebook thread
https://www.crossfit.com/battles/crossfi...-instagram

Crossfit slams Facebook and closes down its corporate activities on Facebook. This is a strong stand, which carries some serious weight as well. (See what I did there!).

So many conservatives complain about Facebook censorship, but it seems to have no lasting effect on their reputation. Having a large, controversial fitness company slam them for their bad practices and accuse them of catering to the junk food advertisers is an effective attack on Facebook's practices.

Quote:CrossFit is a contrarian physiological and nutrition prescription for improving fitness and health. It is contrarian because prevailing views of fitness, health, and nutrition are wrong and have unleashed a tsunami of chronic disease upon our friends, family, and communities. The voluntary CrossFit community of 15,000 affiliates and millions of individual adherents stands steadfastly and often alone against an unholy alliance of academia, government, and multinational food, beverage, and pharmaceutical companies.

CrossFit, Inc. defends relentlessly the right of its affiliates, trainers, and athletes to practice CrossFit, build voluntary CrossFit associations and businesses, and speak openly and freely about the ideas and principles that animate our views of exercise, nutrition, and health. This website—and, until recently, CrossFit’s Facebook and Instagram accounts—has long catalogued CrossFit’s tireless defense of its community against overreaching governments, malicious competitors, and corrupt academic organizations.

Recently, Facebook deleted without warning or explanation the Banting7DayMealPlan user group. The group has 1.65 million users who post testimonials and other information regarding the efficacy of a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. While the site has subsequently been reinstated (also without warning or explanation), Facebook’s action should give any serious person reason to pause, especially those of us engaged in activities contrary to prevailing opinion.

Facebook and its properties host and oversee a significant share of the marketplace of public thought. To millions of individuals and communities across the world, Facebook and its properties remain the platforms where ideas and information are exchanged. Facebook thus serves as a de facto authority over the public square, arbitrating a worldwide exchange of information as well as overseeing the security of the individuals and communities who entrust their ideas, work, and private data to this platform. This mandates a certain responsibility and assurance of good faith, transparency, and due process.

CrossFit, Inc., as a voluntary user of and contributor to this marketplace, can and must remove itself from this particular manifestation of the public square when it becomes clear that such responsibilities are betrayed or reneged upon to the detriment of our community. Common decency demands that we do so, as do our convictions regarding fitness, health, and nutrition, which sit at the heart of CrossFit’s identity and prescription. To this end, all activity on CrossFit, Inc.’s Facebook and Instagram accounts was suspended as of May 22, 2019, as CrossFit investigates the circumstances pertaining to Facebook’s deletion of the Banting7DayMealPlan and other well-known public complaints about the social-media company that may adversely impact the security and privacy of our global CrossFit community.

These publicly sourced complaints include but are not limited to the following:

1. Facebook collects and aggregates user information and shares it with state and federal authorities, as well as security organizations from other countries.

2. Facebook collaborates with government security agencies on massive citizen surveillance programs such as PRISM.

3. Facebook censors and removes user accounts based on unknown criteria and at the request of third parties including government and foreign government agencies.

4. Facebook collects, aggregates, and sells user information as a matter of business. Its business model allows governments and businesses alike to use its algorithmically conjured advertising categories as sophisticated data-mining and surveillance tools.

5. Facebook’s news feeds are censored and crafted to reflect the political leanings of Facebook’s utopian socialists while remaining vulnerable to misinformation campaigns designed to stir up violence and prejudice.

6. Facebook, as a matter of business and principle, has weak intellectual property protections and is slow to close down IP theft accounts.

7. Facebook has poor security protocols and has been subject to the largest security breaches of user data in history.

And finally,

8. Facebook is acting in the service of food and beverage industry interests by deleting the accounts of communities that have identified the corrupted nutritional science responsible for unchecked global chronic disease. In this, it follows the practices of Wikipedia and other private platforms that host public content but retain the ability to remove or silence—without the opportunity for real debate or appeal—information and perspectives outside a narrow scope of belief or thought. In this case, the approved perspective has resulted in the deaths of millions through preventable diseases. Facebook is thus complicit in the global chronic disease crisis.

For these reasons, CrossFit, Inc. has placed Facebook and its associated properties under review and will no longer support or use Facebook’s services until further notice.
