Perhaps it will help me find myself again after downloading my own Facebook data? 😆
via Facebook https://ift.tt/2JFkV7u Our tech columnist Brian Chen: "When I downloaded a copy of my Facebook data last week, I didn’t expect to see much. My profile is sparse, I rarely post anything on the site, and I seldom click on ads. (I’m what some call a Facebook 'lurker.') But when I opened my file, it was like opening Pandora’s box."

The woman’s comments make me feel like a fraud. I’m doing such a great job with her? Me? Are you sure?
