After the deliberations about deactivating facebook, I spent an hour yesterday trying to organise my newsfeed to get rid of the people I didn't want etc. Today all the same rubbish is coming up like it hasn't saved any of my changes and I've just had another horrible abused animal picture that's knocked me sick
Had enough, am doing it! Will see if anyone even notices

I did this as I also didn't like the images that was popping up. The one that made me decided that was it was a really sick image of a baby. Shocking.

Horrible, horrible, horrible. Had enough of it. I'm back to work on monday so won't have time to go on anyway but it's really been getting me down recently and I'm doing a little experiment to see if I even miss it or anyone notices I'm not there!

Could you just cull those who have been posting the sick images?

It's weird DS as it seems to be friends of friends and they appear on my feed? I'm not sure any of my friends would 'share' or 'like' them but they seem to appear, as well as loads of sponsored links and adverts? Otherwise I would've culled them straight away. I spent ages trying to hide and block friends that just annoyed me but when I logged in today t seemed none of it had saved so I was cross
To be honest I don't really get anything out of it, everyone I actually want or need to be in touch with I am anyway so I doubt I'll be missed and I'll spend less time winding myself up!
I hate fb for those bullish*t stories, 99% aren't real or relevant and they get on my nerves! I just block/delete people that continue to post things like that.

I see E, that's silly that you can see friends of friends stuff. That's true McS, those things and the memes that people keep posting are so annoying.

Sounds like you are doing the right thing for you, those images sound awful. I get lots of annoying adverts and 'shared pictures' from random sites, which do my head in but nothing horrible.
I deactivated when we were doing the IVF as it was really starting to hurt logging on to yet another blimmin' scan picture or announcement, or a million baby photos and it did me so much good - I also had loads of time on my hands ha ha! When I came back I culled about 100 people - like those I knew from school but weren't in touch with etc. I would have got rid of more but a lot I had to keep due to them being cousins or in laws etc. Ideally, I'd only like about 20 friends, the people I know well IRL. However because they're not annoying FB status type people, there would never be anything on my newsfeed I guess

Well Lamby no one's missed me so far! And I'm thinking it was getting really unhealthy how much time I was wasting on it and how it was making me feel. My real friends can make the effort to contact me properly, who knows it might reignite my social life!
