I origionally got on Facebook to keep up with a few far flung cousins. Then my wife added some of her co-workers and several recipe pages. I quit talking to most of my cousins, who for some stupid reason thought I wanted them to call me weekly, when we never got along that well as it was! And I just went into settings and blocked factchecker! Holy cow! There was Tommy Factchecker, Bob Factchecker, etc! Hilarious!
I don't "facebook", but I think by blocking it, it only works on what you personally, view....
Other folks are still gonna see your post blocked.
Doing that only makes you feel better... It still stops others from seeing what you really think.

I joined FB when my son joined the Marine Corps.. One way I could always communicate with him were private messages on there and here.. I got 3 warnings in 2 days last week for things I posted on friends pages that were reported by their other friends.. I've got my "friends" list down to 16 people.. Only 1 family member (my son), a couple of close local friends and the rest are Marine Corp parents or Marines that were friends of my son's and I met at one time or another.. It's the liberals reporting my post that I have the most problems with..

Facebook is handy for staying in touch with some family all over the world, some veteran related gab and some silly jokes.
It *is* a private company so they can do whatever they wish w/ regards to filtering or blocking content posted on it. I don't get too involved in online politicking at all.... never does good IMHO.
