In The Comments

Do you ever wonder about people who write out long essays in posts about the most innocent things? Think about how much time these folks spend coming up with responses that seem to be disrespectful and angry.

It seems Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where this happens most. One could do a demographic analysis and come up with conclusions that can affirm a profile of people who seem to do this sort of thing the most.

It’s amazing what they say and makes you wonder if it’s from a place of fear or facts. Don’t dive into the comments, if you do it might leave one sad and bewildered.

  1. I’ll admit to being that person -even on here. However, I’ve gotten rid of posts where I’ve attacked people without a good reason. I’ve deleted my instagram and Facebook for those reasons. I’m pretty sure I’ve deleted Twitter too, but I’ve never really used it to begin with.

    I try to keep my rants on a piece of paper and just throw it away when I’m done with it. I don’t think I’ve completely shifted to this, but I’m getting better at it.

  2. I find comments on news stories here in the UK can be utterly disgusting, filled with hate and disrespect and it’s painful to read them. As is the case with social media and the like, such comments are from small minds and people who really need better things to do with their lives.x

  3. It’s one of the reasons I stopped using Facebook almost four years ago. There are so many mean people, and it gets more on Instagram as well, which is why I use it less and less. I think mostly kids or young adults do that who are having too much time, feel bored, need attention, are mad at themselves but cannot express their anger in a different way or think it’s funny to be mean as they think no one knows who they are. I focus on the nice people on social media. I found many friends on Twitter on Instagram over the years, and I feel grateful that I have them in my life.
