My FB account gets posts about trips to shows, nice dinners, family vacations — the usual dreck. It lets my wife (who monitors my account more than I do but declines to get her own) keep up with relatives, old friends, and church family. When I accidentally posted something political on FB (because I missed that “linking” accounts actually meant “random stuff of yours will be posted to FB with no warning or reminder”) I got jumped by trolls within the hour. And oh look, they’re all family! <DELETE> But now we’re back to puppies and rainbows, and the death eaters don’t bother me.
