So now I watch as friends who are deleting their facebook, twitter, social media profiles. They think the hate is just to much. You stop to see what your kids, grandkids, or old friend from high school is doing.
Within minutes you are involved in an argument about Donald Trump, the wall, Taxes, Human rights etc. You start fighting over what “facts” are. You are sure you are right, and what they are saying is wrong. Because you read one of your friends posts you now see it all.
This month its all about what Donald is doing wrong, last year it was all about what Obama was doing wrong.
So the newest way they figure is lets “delete” our facebook profile. Lets get off social media and get back to “real life”. If I do this I will stop hearing the hate..
Well I think maybe I should warn you…
Warning: this is another great idea that the traditional media wants you to do. To put them back in control of the information you see.
Both our current president, and former president used social media to connect to you. Both were able to reach you with their message. Imagine a world where certain people were in control of the information you receive.
Would you alway receive the truth?
Would you like a world where someone else controls what you see and hear?
Over the past few years getting notice on social media of something happening is much better. And now with “live-streaming” in the mainstream, more and more im getting a “live feed” from someone I know, or someone that I trust because someone I knew introduced them to me.
So think about this before you delete all your social media, and relay on what the media tells you about what is going on. They are in the game for what gets ratings, not always the truth…
Instead think about cleaning up your social feeds. Start with getting rid of the people who only see things their own way. You can tell them by how they fight over what they claim to be “the facts”, they are a willing to fight and most of the time its just for fighting sake..
If you have an opinion turn it into a blog, share your beliefs on a blog page and turn it into a place where you can gain some subscribers, and possible control your own online media space.
