Social Media Hijacking ~May I Vent Just a Bit?
I can almost bet that most of you reading this have had a post on social media hijacked in the comments feed. In fact, it often happens here in the blogging world! You've placed a post on your own social media feed and BAM! Someone decides to place a ranting comment that begins a WORD WAR in your feed!
Now, I do enjoy hearing various opinions, however, what is happening now is much more than a friendly volley of hyperbole. These individuals have an agenda and that is to create dissension! Their aim is to inject as much of their leanings into your feed and will wrangle with your personal contacts and their comments.
This is what took place last week. I was watching the Presidential State of the Union Address and put up a post about the touching stories that were being presented. There was absolutely NOTHING in that post that was partisan in any form or fashion. A simple, "You guys, these stories have turned me into a big ole crying mess!"
Shortly thereafter, a few folks decided to comment with their own, political agendas and dissertations! I mean really? This post was about the touching stories of real humans and heroes.
I finally commented to these people, "Hey there! This is my personal post! Take your dissertation to your own page. With all due respect!"
Hijacking someone else's post simply to enrage and cram your leanings down our throats is nonsensical. Your opinions are yours so keep them out of my personal feed. Remember, this is called "social" media. A place to socialize not start a political word war!
Thank you - that is all! Live today as if it were your last! LIV2DAY!
