    That's is one feature I do like on FB, you can hide groups and people that you don't want to see all the time. There is at least one group where the moderator/admins are a little power hungry and come off as condescending or rude, even using all caps a little too often. I didn't want to leave the group, but I did hide it from my feed. I've also used the block feature for people who's comments annoy me so I don't have to see anything they write.

    I was blocking & hiding so many it just seemed insane to continue to go to the app to just be frustrated! So I repeat "Calm blue ocean" to myself and come here instead

    Same here....sometimes I go onto a facebook site to see pictures but have never and will never sign up so it is annoying when I keep getting the pop up message in the middle of the box. Love this forum no need to go anywhere else imo

    I've never been on facebook . I do know from people I work with that there seems to be a ton of drama on it. Life is too short to waste precious time getting upset about something someone said on a computer.....always remember the only people that can hurt you are people you truly love and care about. Just something I live by. Diane

    I wish there was a way to exclude threads on this forum. Some topics just aren't of interest and clutter the feed. It's not a huge technical leap to implement.

    Will the "ignore feature" work for that?

    the ignore feature only works to ignore particular forum member's postings.

    for example: if act1966 is not interested in john doe's writings........act1966 can hit ignore and ignore and never see john doe's writings.

    The one complaint that I have about the FB Groups is that often times in the comments someone will post about getting loans and other stuff which has nothing to do with Aruba or the post being commented on.

    There are some positives though. I bought my units on a FB Aruba page and have rented many units on those pages over the years.
