I got off FB a year ago, wrote Zuck a real old time letter, sent via snail mail, said he was helping divide the nation, and my joy over seeing pictures of my grandkids was outweighed by my disgust of seeing hateful posts, so I got off.  I sign in on Sat. AM, see the new pics of my grandkids, report a couple of posts I spot, then sign off for the week.  I'm very happy to see corporate america stand up for the truth and civility.

My swing trades typically last a couple of weeks to a couple of months and I focus on SPY.  During the Corona virus bear market I use more sector funds to avoid the bad spots in the SPY such as energy, hotels, and the airlines.

A simpler solutions would be 

- you be able to delete posts

- you be able to turn off posts

- block posters from your account

 

You should also have the option not to read or follow other's accounts.

I could unfollow a few peeps but they are friends from high school.  They "share" propaganda that they don't create, it was created in 2016 by the Internet Research Agency in Russia specifically to divide the American public.  I don't want to unfollow my friends, I want FB to clean up their site.  If they can keep porn off the site, they can keep propaganda off the site.  Ban politics if necessary like they ban porn and violence.  I don't help the nation by unfollowing my friends.  I help the nation by encouraging FB to do the right thing.  It is not the simpler solution, it is the better solution.

Porn is objective - nudity; propaganda is subjective.

 

"I don't help the nation by unfollowing my friends"

Yes you do; no one following them, they are yelling into a void.  By following them, you are encouraging them because they think you are listening and they have an audience.
