Is it really that hard to stop using them?

I haven't used FB in many years, and YT I use once in a blue moon to watch certain documentaries

I have never used FB and the only videos on YT are documentaries which I download and view as my leisure.
If this shit keeps up, I am NOT coming back to this planet.

The only thing I use FB for is to get pics of my grandkids and updates about relatives who have croaked. I have very few things favorited or followed on there. Just some family and old friends that live several states away.

I do some music videos, documentaries, and the occasional political opinion video on YT. Total average usage equals maybe 4 hours total a week. Mostly documentaries. There are months were I don't even load a YT vid of any sort.

Haven't seen too many ads on either. uBlock browser app. It really does clear the clutter away.

FB is deleted. I only get really weird youtube when I clear my history. Then it presents the mindless pablum which is most popularly consumed. After it learns me again (I do not sign in, or subscribe to channels) I get documentaries and diy's.

It is a non issue for me, I know how to use a search function. Sometimes it bums me out if I watch too many giant ship wave vids, and see a tsunami vid. Quick search on dogs barking, show it to my pup, and I can fix the bummer.(I Love that my dog watches vids.)

As an example, I was listening to a speech by Reagan and all of sudden it was interrupted by an ad to vote for Joe Donnelly. Joe Donnelly was the incumbent senator for Indiana who lost to Braun. I'm sure the Donnelly ad was not going out to everyone listening to that speech, just people in my area. That told me youtube knows my exact location and who was running for senator in Indiana. Donnelly is a democrat. I found two more ads for him while on youtube and none for Braun who is the republican who won. Election fuckery on the part of youtube.

They know where you are, people, and have proved it.

Just recently YT put in more adds in their videos. For example a 12 min video used to have 1 or maybe 2 at most. now its like every 4 min they hav an add come up. Ham

Your choice, your choice
Peace or annihilation"

I’ve been using youtube for many years now, and I noticed odd patterns in suggested videos during the past year.

I don’t know how the algorithms work, that suggest videos for me, but I literally feel like it’s trying to manipulate my emotions. The suggestions also change depending on the time of

It’s a bit hard to explain, but I’ll try:

As an example, if I’m in a good mood and listening to music, I get suggested things that piss me off and try to ruin my mood, mostly political / environment

This usually happens in the evening when I try to relax and get my mind off all the crap.

The same pattern I notice on Facebook, it ”wants” to make me happy or angry, by filtering posts.

I sometimes think, why is everything so negative today on FB, but when I dig deeper, it’s just my feed, many other friends have posted positive things.

Has anyone else had similar experiences?

FB was created by the CIA. I have never used it. In-Q-Tel funded FB development and retain the ability to search it at will.
FB is censored. You can't tell real truth there, but that I mean any truth about the USA govt and Intelligence agencies breaking laws every day and spying on every one.

In-Q-Tel also funded Google for the same types of concessions.

FB and Google are CIA NSA entities and always have been. Google owns YT.
YT is censored.

Never support censorship. Censorship is the tool of fascists.
