ohmygod. I'm shocked and sickened by the sight and the sounds. I can't get it out of my mind.

My grandson looks at my page sometimes. ohmygod. I'm still in shock.
I typically don't "unfriend" people because of what they post. I just hide their posts from my newsfeed if I don't like them. But something like that would mean automatic unfriending. It amazes me the kinds of things people think are okay to share.

That friend would be removed from my news feed.

I did. I really can't believe he posted something so horrible and without any warnings.

I don't particularly want to share photos or sayings that go along with other people's personal crusades. For some reason seeing these makes me uncomfortable.

That really has to be the worst example of bad facebook posts on the thread. I usually just hide annoying people from my newsfeed, but I would unfriend that person immediately. I wonder how many people did.

This is way beyond annoying. This is downright sick!

people who want to be experts on life after they find a job. They forgot they were unemployed for months.

Now I was unemployed for a year but don't go FB preaching about what someone should do to better their life

I can only speak for myself but I find the impact that Facebook is having on our culture and our society at large both fascinating and deeply concerning. I used to have an account. I get why people like it. I got rid of it though because of my observations and concerns. I ultimately think that it causes more harm to relationships and human interaction, then good.

Why more harm to relationships?
