Facebook is a prominent and controversial social web network in which there is no single ‘home’ page but viewers see different configurations of posts displayed via algorithms calculated to monetize the members.

Planeta.com would like to help friends and colleagues make the most of Facebook, particularly via pages, groups and events … and in turn, figuring it out ourselves.

If you are creating or participating in an event on the ground, check out the relevant pages on Facebook. Bonus point for making events and posts easy to embed on other websites.

Data
For current users, highly recommended is downloading one’s own Facebook data. Easy to do from the settings page: https://www.facebook.com/settings

Favorite Pages and Groups
On Facebook there is a Planeta Page and a Planeta Group. Hosting a page and a group, I see the advantages and disadvantages of each, but it’s still difficult to articulate.

(11.2018) Curiously on my laptop and Firefox, I’m not able to read Facebook comments. Comments do appear on the smartphone and tablet.

Scandal
Given the recent scandal regarding Cambridge Analytica, we are reconsidering our use of Facebook. While some call for people to delete Facebook accounts, we are decidedly on the fence, finding the social web channel a useful tool to stay in touch with friends.

This page will be updated accordingly. Your thoughts?
