Yes, the advertisements and people "sharing" and reposting things just really got under my skin, also. I've been using Facebook since 2006 and have seen it go through many changes, and I've always coasted along with the changes, no problem. But, I just can't deal with it anymore, it no longer has a purpose in my life. I live far from my family, so I used to use it to keep connected with them, which was great. But, now it is so cluttered with junk and nonsense that it's not worth picking through all the crap to get to the stuff I really want to see. Most people who I truly care about I always was in contact with frequently outside of Facebook. I really don't feel like I miss it at all.
I don't know about making today the greatest day of my LIFE, as you can see from the photos, I have had some pretty awesome events in the last few years. Making today better than that... well.. that's a lot of pressure!! Haha! But I can make it the greatest day of the week, that's doable.
