I wiped my data and deleted my Facebook account long ago,.
When I found that FB was "reading" your posts and private messages, logging your likes and dislikes and using that information to decide what kind of fraudulent news to send you in order to throw a US election, I didn't want to be an accessory to that crime.
I don't care if it was for the candidate I liked or the candidate I didn't like, using fraud to throw an election is just wrong. Note: I didn't say "Fake News" - if done with an intention like that, it's fraud, so call it fraud.
I did a search and PC Mag showed me how to delete my data first. I do not want the sale of my information to support someone using it for criminal activity.
At first I missed FB, but after a few weeks, I realized life is better without it.

I didn't miss it instantly, it was a relief!!! FWIW, I created a fake email account and used that to sign in with a fake name.
No phone number and I never use my phone for an internet connection in any case.
Google and Apple are no better than Fakebook, if anyting they are sneakier.
Running a cheap Tracfone, I make calls and texts and that is it. I have a Garmin if I need to find a location.
Yes, I am Neanderthal...
