Wildest Posts From the Depths of Facebook (March 19, 2023)

It’s hard to believe nowadays, but there was a time when we weren’t confronted with the dumb opinions and embarrassing foibles of just about everyone we know 24/7. That’s not the case in the present, and one of the places that was key in foisting this change on us was Facebook.
