It was revealed many false posts were seen by millions of FB users and passed on without checking their accuracy.

FB chairman would not say if these posts influenced the election, I say it did. Each person on FB has several hundred ‘Friends’, multiply that by millions of users and think about it.

I was amazed at the number of FB users who I thought had more sense who passed on this false information without checking our the source or accuracy. I spent hours checking their posts and getting back to them with the facts. By then it was too late, they had been shared by thousands.

Finally I had enough of the stupidity and closed my account. Feeling better, have more time for myself. I can spend more time on my blog, something I have neglected since being on FB.
