Any of you guys in “Buy Nothing” groups on Facebook?

I am in one for my town and it’s actually pretty great, especially for kids toys and kid stuff in general.

My one pet peeve is the “requests” some people make. Extremely tacky when someone is like “anyone got an old IPad you aren’t using?”

Facebook is good. Just set it so you don’t see the posts of idiots who can’t stop talking about politics.

I get a mixture of funny posts, vacations, food, people’s kids, buzzfeed style articles, stuff for sale (or free) and info/news related to some groups I am in (hobbies, sports teams, town news, etc).

Yeah, it's basically a place where I keep up with my friends/family and where we occassionally post pictures of where/what we're doing. It's a glorified photo album to stay in touch. Kid is a volleyball tournament? Post a picture. Family vacation? Post a picture. At a concert? Post a picture. Find a funny picture of a friend from years past? Post it on Facebook.

It's not informative. It's not political (I unfollow anyone who is overly religious or political). Our pages are private, so the world can't see our boring ass posts. But most of all, it's harmless. Nothing too serious and just a way to see what people are doing now that we've all gotten busy and not as close as we'd like to be.
