    Mainly because they've bought out competitors and have been able to diversify. For example, they also own Instagram which is quite popular right now.

    I have avoided FB. As a long time reader of Slashdot, FB's rather cavalier attitude to privacy and tracking has been discussed on /. so I avoided FB for that reason. Fiascos such as allowing politicians to spread knowing lies on FB do not make me want to bother with their sorry asses.

    Some of my hiking groups use it for organizing. I find it useful for that, and sometimes for "login with facebook". I don't believe I've ever actually made a post on my wall, though.

    I use Facebook for keeping contact with people, and occasionally various Facebook groups. I really like the Messenger app. I have not bothered with status updates and the like for almost a decade.

    I used to use Facebook. At one point I was one of those people with over 200 Facebook friends. Then I decided to purge it and brought it down to only a couple dozen; only those who I actually saw on a regular basis in real life. Then about a year and a half ago I just stopped using it completely and have not logged back into it since. I don't know why. I think I was using it merely out habit, changed my home PC and didn't bother to check/change my password and log into it.

    That made me wonder how much of my online activity is primarily due to force of habit, and I had to answer it is a lot (including posting here).

    I spend perhaps 3-4 hours daily on Facebook. That includes using the messenger app. Every now and then I do a cull of phantom friends to make room for new friends. I for one love it including participating in various groups like atheism and many others.
