    It's been sick and under continuing threat for some time. Prognosis is 'in the balance'.

    What's a facebook tracking code.

    We boomers over 70 don't know these things.

    This is the link dissected - the first part is the video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ue5F57dZMU

    this part is un-necessary - &feature=share

    this part is the facebook tracking code - &fbclid=IwAR2NbcqiN-L13sYlS2DehBEUzim4wCnx36e0-ezqxcL6ByMXcJeaPs52nk4
    the fbclid is Face Book Click IDentification and tells facebook all of the many people who the op interacts with.

    this part is an unknown (to me) addon - &app=desktop - did you use a cell phone?

    and I'm a boomer - tho under 70.. 0-:



    FWIW, I try to remove all un-necessary parts of a link before I post it. Call it my public service. (-:

    Either way, don’t let democracy die.

    I don't facebook either, but I'm quite sure that Facebook still gathers as much as they can from us. Google certainly knows that we watched.
