Jill Prince Kimmins Yes! My husband and I think it's rude and inappropriate to put negative political comments on facebook and we are so tired of seeing them. I was joking last night that I wish there were a way to block political comments from my facebook feed. I logged on at 6 this morning to see random comments like "Shut up [candidate's name]" in my newsfeed. There's no need for that! Thank you for this article!

Pamela Narins Not at all. FB is the modern Agora. It's a town square where people get to talk about what's on their minds. Open conversation in all its messiness. I would think we'd all be delighted that people are involved in the process. If you don't like what people are saying, discuss it with them or ignore the post. Simple.
