I’m wondering what the mid-term election results will do to my social media participation. After the presidential results I ran and hid for a couple of months to get away from all the negative energy people were constantly venting (even though I agreed with their POV). At least for me negative energy is counterproductive to driving change, serves to drive further polarization, as well as hurting (my) personal well-being. I avoid it in real life and social media is no exception. I don’t know if the community on MB and the tools in the apps well be effective in managing this or not (e.g. mute doesn’t work right IMO). Time will tell but I am a bit hopeful.
