SOUND OFF: How Political Should You Get With Facebook Friends?
As the Nov. 6 election nears, political discussion is getting heated. How much do you share of your political opinions with your Facebook friends?
Maybe you're a die-hard Democrat, and you think Joe Biden wiped the floor with Paul Ryan in the vice presidential debate Thursday.
Or maybe you're a staunch Republican, you believe Paul Ryan was on top of his game.
Do you share these opinions with your Facebook friends?
The article is informed by data from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project.
The study found that 18 percent of Facebook users have blocked, unfriended, or hidden a friend because of political differences or a distaste for the sheer volume of the friends’ political posts.
Where do you stand on sharing your political or personal beliefs on Facebook? Have you argued with a friend because of this? How much is too much? Or, do you think that all political debate is healthy? Tell us in the comments.
