I have an account on Facebook. I started it when Rosebikes offered ten euros if you liked their page. I only accepted five friend requests and have unfollowed all of them. As a result I only see things on pages of specific interest which I've joined. These include woodworking sites (for inspiration, some projects on there are superb) and interest (e.g. vintage bikes). I probably only look in once a week though. Whats App is handy. Recently we had a power cut at home and I could talk my wife through what to do, a photo of the fusebox was really helpful. They both work for me.
