I have not always been a big social media fan, but I have to admit that Facebook is pretty great for keeping in touch with people and for finding groups of similar interests.
There are some great Facebook pages and groups that are anti-bad science. Many of these are funny and all are worth checking out
Note that some of these are closed groups, where you have to apply for membership to the group before you can post to it, and, in some cases, read all the posts.
Anti Vax Wall of Shame - The worst comments, posts and quotes from anti-vaccine activists and websites.
Australian Vaccination Network – Not to be confused with the actual Australian Vaccination Network, this is pro-vaccine. How they got to use the name, I have no idea.
Conspiracy Theorists Say the Darndest Things – Comically bad conspiracy claims from around the web.
Fundies Say the Darndest things – Comically bad quotes and posts from religious fundimentalists, mostly.
New Age Woos Say the Darndest Things -Similar comically bad quotes, these from newagers, quacks and similar.
GMOLOL - Crazy GMO claims refuted and poked fun at. Also general advocacy for good science regarding genetically engineering technology.
GMO Skepti-Forum – A place for skeptics of outlanding GMO claims (not as funny as GMOLOL)
Anti-Alternative Medicine – A group opposing and exposing quackery.
Please feel free to add recommended groups and pages in the comments!
