It's getting crazy lately on Facebook. Everyone is freaking out over current events and starting mini world wars on their Facebook page. While it's totally your own page to do whatever you want, if you don't want lots of drama try out these tips.
1\\ Think Twice Before You Post
If you know that the only reaction to your status will be an uproar of opinions and you don't want to deal with it - DON'T POST! I always tell people - if you wouldn't say it in a room full of strangers, coworkers, or relatives - don't put it on social media.
2\\ Respect Opinions
Keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their opinion and if you are posting yours in a status be prepared to hear objections. You have to realize that just because someone doesn't agree with you doesn't mean you don't have other things in common and can't be friends.
3\\ Delete It
If people start posting low blows at each other it may just be time to take the post down. Seriously. If you already made the mistake of impulsively posting something iffy, just delete it.
4\\ Lighten Up
Try to make a joke and lighten the mood if you are putting up a controversial status. Try to avoid offensive humor though. Sometimes I make a joke to lighten the mood in my comments or I'll even make the statement "I don't agree or disagree with this article, I was just sharing it".
5\\ Avoid Certain Topics
The thing about religion, politics, and sports is that there is no right or wrong. Everyone gets to choose what they like or believe and everyone will think their belief is the best. So it's completely pointless to post about some of those topics if you don't want people to object. If you do post about them, sit back and get ready for the opinions.
