So I’m trying to sign up for a Facebook account again (stricly not going use it for anything except trading of old computer crap and Magic cards); and it’s a horror show.

They require a phone number (can sort of work around with a messaging service) but also they require a photo of your face that they do their creepy AI stuff on to “check if it’s really you”.

I’m in “manual review” for the “security of our community” now. What the fuck even.

Needless to say, I have their trackers blocked on everything. I guess being a conscious consumer makes you suspicious.

@mkb for these specific things there’s way better Facebook groups unfortunately
