I can confirm that this is totally a thing and I also recommend NEVER back-stalking yourself (as in going to your most recently tagged photo and hitting the left arrow). It's horrifying.


It is quite possibly the most cringe-worthy thing imaginable. I've never called it back-stalking before, but that's definitely a new term I plan on employing haha. I ended up just clicking "hide from timeline" on like 100 pics. Idk if that actually hides it from your photos when people look through, though. Untagging/hiding photos is confusing. I was trying to figure out how to hide all photos and I couldn't


Speaking of cringe worthy things doing on fb, I once posted on a guy who was running for office in my hometowns page for ppl not to vote for him Bc he was a convicted sex offender in the 70s. I subsequently got a call from his wife yelling at me.

Well...was it true?
If yes, I love you.
If no, let's just married.

Preptest 65

LR (-5); BR (-3)
LG (-7); BR (-2)
RC (-5);
LR (-5); BR (-3)

Total - 164 without Blind Review; 170 with Blind Review

I'm so close to where I want to be scoring, I can taste it. I am having some issues with finishing LG on time, thus resulting in having to guess on 7 questions :x ! I definitely need to drill timed sections of games. My RC is improving, although I had to guess on 3 questions due to time constraints. Overall, I am happy with my progress, however, I think this last month is going to be the ultimate measure.

Just finished PT 66. Will post results later today after BR. I thought the LG and LR weren't too bad but really felt lost in RC. Some of the content were fairly dense for given the time constraint and had to 50/50 guess on a lot.

It's hard to quantify someone else's progress, however, RC is known as the hardest section to improve upon. I would suggest simply reading the passages, not answering the questions, but after reading, write down the main idea, the support, author's opinion, and the structure of the passage. This would obviously help when you start answering questions, it becomes innate.

This is a ridiculous waste of a valuable resource: time. I would rather deactivate it and go on for maybe 5 minutes during a FB lapse, versus spending hours unfollowing every friend on my list. What's the point of even having a Facebook at that point?


On the contrary, it is just the opposite; it took me ~45 minutes to unfollow everyone and (apart from private messages and posting on others' walls), I haven't used Facebook in the past year. That strikes me as a decent investment.

And as I mentioned, the point is that you can still receive private messages, maintain your public profile and post on others' walls.


Ya probably had less than 100 friends. NO THX.


It took maybe 3-5 seconds per unfollow because you don't have to navigate to each individual profile but rather just pull up the master list of all your friends and work on there. Maybe it took an hour, idk. Even if it takes five hours (it doesn't; not even close even for 1k+ friends) as someone suggested, it would still save an enormous amount of time over the course of several months/years.

I find willpower to be a finite resource. At the end of a long day, I would find myself mindlessly browsing Facebook for half an hour or more. Unfollowing everything/everyone took only a bit longer than that and makes it so that I don't waste time in that way and instead spend my time more productively while losing out on nothing. I posted a little-known solution to a problem many have; if you don't care for it then fine but your condescension makes you sound insufferable.

I really wish there was a clear cut solution to RC. My current RC section score ranges 17-20 as well depending on the content.

I understand shitposting or whatever, but not exclusively. And even if that is the only thing you're going to do in a thread that should exist for support and solidarity, at least make it funny.
