- I don’t do politics on my personal Facebook page. I believe in “Make Facebook Fun Again.” I post recipes, memes, quotes, and other funny things that make me smile and laugh. Most of my Facebook followers I have met in real life and I enjoy the idea that something I post might make them smile or laugh.
- When I do post political things, it goes on my blog’s Facebook page, My Domestic Church Notebook, or Twitter. People who sign up for those do so because they like the content and very few of them are family or close friends. This helps to keep the peace.
- I don’t follow my politically minded friends on Facebook. However, I do pop in to wish them a happy birthday. I thank sharing good wishes on a birthday are very important.
- At family get-togethers and dinners with friends, I avoid political discussions like the plague. If such discussions are unavoidable, I find it wisest to listen and maybe ask a few genuine questions via the Socratic method for amateurs.
