Hiding Facebook contacts
These days social networks have become an outlet for political diatribes. Every person giving their opinion, most in a particularly aggressive way. And this was making my Facebook experience a real pain. Luckily I discovered a button that "hides" all the comments and updates from annoying people. And I basically 'hid" 90% of my contacts.
When I visit a social network, I want to see what's going on in that person's life. Maybe share a joke or a curious articles. But I don't care about what you think about the government, the governor, the president. I just don't
So now when I go into Facebook, it's a wonderful experience. It's an escape from the world, not a reinforcement of all that is bad in it.
