I wonder if by editing my Facebook friends I am simply editing my
life to only have to deal with the things that I find palatable. That seems so sheltered.
I was thinking this over lunch as I forced myself to read some of the posts that gave me the irrits.
I decided I was right to go with the edited life. For me FB is a place to share things with my family and friends and not the place for political stands.
I have no problem with the views so expressed. Everyone has the right to their own position and it doesn’t have to match mine.
And of course I don’t have to read it.
But these things compel me in a morbid sort of fascination.
Can’t I just use FB to talk about Christmas elves and see selfies of drunk friends and family members?
