The social value of Facebook is obvious. It gives us the ability to reconnect with old friends, stay close with family that is distant, and build new relationships as we go. However, this week Pew released a study on politics and Facebook that confirmed what a lot of us already know….Facebook is a bad medium for politics.
- Typically, 73% of users “sometimes agree” or “disagree” with friends/followers political views/posts.
- 66% of users typically ignore political posts by people (most likely to keep friendships intact).
