A dear friend of mine recently joined the SL Facebook trend. She was shocked and dismayed at some of the hate speech that was filling her timeline. Naturally, I told her to delete these people, cuz that’s what I do. However, this got me thinking about how I hear various people complaining about what they see on their timelines. Do they not know how to Facebook or are they so afraid of missing out that they subject themselves to a constant flow of toxicity?
Let me just say, this is how I Facebook, there’s not wrong or right way, I suppose. Yet, if you follow a few simple guidelines, you can enjoy you social media so much more! First and foremost, don’t add just anyone…make sure you have a lot of friends in common. Odds are better for everyone this way. Secondly, unfollow people that get on your nerves, but you don’t want to unfriend. I mean, if they are posting tons of baby pictures or planning a wedding, etc, I’m likely to unfollow them or snooze them for 30 days, cuz I don’t care about that stuff. Nor do I want to see all that. Block can also be your friend, but I save that for extreme circumstances.
So, really, you have more control over your timeline than you think. Keep the funny, positive people and unfollow the whiney, bitchy ones. I mean its all about how you choose to feed your timeline.
