I have a lot of friends well some more acquaintances than people I would trust my life with on Facebook and I finally had to filter out some of the folks I follow because they post things that hurt my head and heart. My political/religious/cultural leanings veer to the left and I am not sorry about that. Facebook seems to be a place where conflict happens frequently between people who normally like each other. You don’t discuss religion, politics and maybe sports with some people lest you get into a heated discussion. Sometimes you need to be challenged on what you think but other times you just want people you are like minded with. Filtering Facebook Friends can mean keeping the peace for long-term relationship preservation. Other times you just need to kick some “friends” to the curb.
