Social media – it’s so good for a number of reasons. Keeping up with family and friends, following news of the day, even promotion of a product. I love to blog and I love to follow facebook. Lately though, it’s constantly been a source of headache and frustration and hurt (not for me but for others). I could go on and on, but I’ll keep it simple. This is what I posted on facebook just now…
What say you? Agree or disagree. But please, I don’t want to hear about your political views. 🙂
*Edited (9/6/12) to add: I ended up deleting this post this morning. It was long and rambling and I felt that it may have been misunderstood. My facebook is mine and yours is yours. If you choose to use yours to talk politics, that’s your choice. I don’t have to agree with you and I certainly don’t hate those whose view I don’t agree with. This is what makes this country great. We can hold different views and we can vote for whichever candidate we want. We are Americans and we are free! Yay!
My husband and I have different political views. We still can (and do) talk politics…without arguing. We respect each others’ views and don’t try to change them. We have often voted for different candidates for president.
The status above was all about the lack of respect, bullying, and just plain mean spiritedness that I’ve seen. And am tired of seeing. I am not giving up facebook completely, but am stepping way back from my time spent there (which was too much anyhow!).
