“The Dangers of Being Too Political on Social Media” ~ Can We Talk? Or At Least Think.

The following thoughts were provoked by an article published by a person in my Google Plus circles, MikeAllton. He's a social media consultant and was given the opportunity to publish his content at MarketingProfs.com which he titled: “The Dangers of Being Too Political on Social Media”.


Let's face facts people. Social media is here to stay. 

I might also add: 

  • Social media is no different from Mars Hill, except that the reach of the debate and the discussions is worldwide, and you don't have to be deemed “one of the great minds” in order to add your two cents into the babbling cauldron.
😉



I love a spirited discussion and debate. Especially with my husband. Who usually always wins because he tires me out. It's not that he persuades me. I just run out of wind.

Regards friends in my social networks, I am careful to choose who to discuss really in-depth serious matters with, whether it be politics, religion or other really “tough stuff”. But if I am deeply concerned about an adverse impact of a decision, friend or no friend, I think it would wrong for me to not say anything and I feel compelled to be willing to sacrifice my “comfort zone” for the greater good. Even if I run the risk of losing a friend (or get yelled at by a total stranger who doesn't know me at all).

Some matters are worth taking the risk of losing a friend. 
But you have to decide that.

Some matters are worth taking the risk of losing your job. 
But you have to decide that.

Would you rather not say anything just to remain friends, only years later to have that “adverse impact” of a political decision manifest itself and then speak up? Only to have your friend look at you and ask: “Why didn't you say something then??! I thought I was your friend!” 

Would you rather choose to keep a job only to find that, in reality, you relinquished your freedom?

 I think of whether it would be “dangerous”  to NOT express myself.

(As  insignificant as my thoughts are to the grand scheme of things and the survival of the human race.) ☺
