IMO, FB would do better to offer a paid subscription service sans ads,

I wouldn't. AdblockPlus is free and works well.
I would because FB's algorithms for displaying posts are defective. Like
Google's, they over-value current read history.
FB is nowhere near as good as usenet.
For interest groups. yes, except that every now and then a Usenet group
is messed up by trolls or by flooders.
Perhaps I'd feel differently if I
didn't have to jump through hoops to view FB videos with firefox (Chrome
has no problems) and
??? No problems with FF on Win8.1 Pro/64.
if I could see ALL the posts I've chosen to see on
a timely (or "at all") basis.
That's precisely what I would pay for. All control at my end. You can't
control any ad-supported service. Blocking ads isn't the same as control.
If FB won't provide that service, maybe somebody else is smart enough to
