You’ve noticed a huge influx of political posts on your Facebook feed over the past few months; I’m curious: How do they make you feel?
Oh my gosh, friends, Facebook for me has become a junk yard. So many great, wonderful, and smart people posting garbage that does not belong on Facebook!
I’m not afraid to be honest with you: Y’all are RUINING Facebook with your political posts.
It’s time to stop! For real.
Facebook isn’t for politics — or at least, it shouldn’t be. Politics on your personal page can potentially do more harm than good.
And if you’re marketing your business on Facebook, you NEVER want to head down this road.
You can lose friends.
Even worse? You could lose clients!
If you’re determined to spend time disagreeing over political issues online, go to a political blog or a news site and do it there!
Let’s get back to growing our businesses and commenting on that outrageous cat video.
I totally agree with you on this. Facebook is a social platform.
I disagree. There is too much at stake here. Every 4 years we elect a president and people to represent us in the house and senate, and then for four years we ignore what is going on in Washington until it’s time to repeat the process. Too much damage is being done while we are not paying attention. It has taken this last polarizing election season and this volatile administration to wake us up to this fact. Facebook, Instagram, etc have become our new place to socialize, to converse. If these political posts/discussions don’t happen here, they won’t happen at all for most of us. As long as everyone is respectful and open-minded, I see absolutely no problem with it.
In fact, I much prefer the politics over all of the advertising/buy this and your life will be perfect/you’ll get rich etc. that goes on on social media. How much damage is this “buy this and your life will be perfect” posting doing? Just a thought…
You are right. 100% I took a seminar on this topic about 5 years ago. Your FB page is your brand, your professional brand, if such applies. No on is going to be convinced to agree with my politics by a speech or article posted on my FB page, but I could lose a client or a friend if what I post is not worded just perfectly. It’s too much of a risk with little, if no, chance of changing someone’s mind to my way of thinking. If I want to change the world then I’ll do it. I’ll mentor a child, volunteer at a food bank, help my neighbor get to a doctor’s visit, donate to a cause, run for office, VOTE! There are lots of way to impact my world. Keep up the good work and congratulations!
I love fired up Natasha most of all. ;)
Yeah it’s true in India too Facebook is all covered with politics and not only covered it is also dominated by politicians
