Are Facebook attacks going the way of the dinosaur?
Like many people, I Facebook a LOT. LOL I have quite a few friends/family in state and out of state online that I keep up with through this medium. I have read, and embarrassingly been a part of, a few Facebook “debates” in the past. But, lately I have seen less and less of this way of arguing a point and more posts where people just have a discussion about two opposing views. What if Facebook were a place that people could go to read others thought and opinions . . .with an open mind? A place where people could go for a free flow of ideas? A place where civil discourse was apparent and people talked and listened to each other. Let me repeat that last part. Where people listened to each other. A place where we felt comfortable posting our opinion without angry retort but instead receive a calm rebuttal.To be honest I think it’s actually getting better. This old worn out way of battling each other is starting to feel so antiquated. I have seen less of it lately. Maybe it’s dying out? Maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part. What’s your take on this?
