But now I'm imagining women signing up for this service and discovering that male friends or acquaintances had taken upskirt photos of them.

Which is doubly creepy, because aside from revealing that about men they know, it would mean that FB could recognize them even in an upskirt photo.

Facebook tips, want to report an obvious troll? Don't bother with all of this community standard stuff, conserva-troll will get the a-ok from FB. Instead inform them that they aren't using their real name and thus the marketing data collected on them is worth less. Action will be taken!

Maybe you could try disabling the malware if it can't be uninstalled.

Uninstalled it and installed an alternative that doesn't try to assert itself like that.

Now, my phone keeps changing my default messaging app to the inbuilt Samsung messaging app. Maybe I have to send Chomp SMS to an assertiveness training class or two.

Has Facebook changed the way you see "most recent stories"? This morning, if I navigate away from FB and come back, it shows me one or two things (presumably, just those posts that have been made since I left), then tells me, "You'll have more stories in News Feed if you add more friends." WTF!? Just give me all of my feed, in chronological order! How fucking hard can it be?! They must be trying to drive everyone to "Top Stories" out of frustration, to maximize their own revenues. Shit, I'd pay $5/mo for FB if it got rid of the ads and let me see what my friends are posting without this hassle.

FB must be watching. NOW my feed is back . . .

ETA: spoke too soon. Got maybe 10 posts, and then this:

"Welcome to Facebook

Get started by adding friends. You'll see their videos, photos and posts here."

I am not seeing that. On Android or on web. Clearly you've been targeted for some kind of A/B testing. (You're B in case that wasn't clear. Possibly even B-.)

I hate Facebook's idea of an auto-curated feed. I'd rather have a scrollable chronological feed, rather than their idea of what they deem important.

That's hits the nail on the head. Facebook is essentially an army of rusty crowbars having their way with their merchandise. After all, they have to serve their customers.

Oh, it's just a selection from the collected posts of Mark Zuckerberg, 2020 presidential candidate.
