Why Can’t We Keep Social Media Fun?

Chances are, the last time you checked your Facebook feed, you saw a bunch of angry posts about today’s issues, politics and just overall frustrating topics. To be completely honest, nobody cares about your tangent about how much you hate Trump or North Carolina.

I’m not saying we should ignore issues, or be ignorant to them. But do you really think ranting on Facebook makes a difference? We’re living in a society where people think standing for an issue is screaming your opinion on Facebook and unfriending anyone who disagrees with you. This is modern society. It’s either what you believe, or the other idea is blasphemy and wrong.

All I want on my newsfeed is funny memes, updates worth reading from friends, and cat pictures. Not, TRUMP SAID THIS! THIS PERSON CANCELED HIS GIG IN NC.

I don’t care, and hopefully, nobody else does. Politics is a shitty topic and will divide people no matter what. So please stop spreading anger and frustration. We all know life sucks and things are getting worse. Rants on Facebook won’t stop that, neither will signing a petition, except, oh, you don’t sign petitions anymore. In today’s world, you type your name and click a button. Way to stand up for what you believe.

Why can’t we keep our newsfeeds happy and fun? The world sucks, why does Facebook have to as well?
