Do you suspect you’ve been unfriended, blocked or otherwise limited in being seen on social media because of your political views?

I don’t discuss politics or religion on any of my social media unless you count this place.

Lol. Was that what prompted your poll? They unfriended you for that? 😆

I posted the poll based upon the FB post. I wanted to know the reaction. That was early in the morning.

It wasn’t until after I arrived home from work that I found out that I was unfriended.

I thought it would be a good poll question. I was surprised to find out that I was unfriended.

Yes. I don’t even express political views on Facebook or other social media outside of SOH and I’ve had contacts block or unfriendly me because they riled themselves up during the last election.

Nope. Just unfriended because I told someone to post the price of a car for sale.

Absolutely and I've done all those things too. I had no idea what ugly people some of my friends and family were before social media.

Because it's dangerous to do so on other media where here is a safe space. Now go to your safe place.

It’s not for those reasons at all. Anything I say or do or even businesses I may mention positively or negatively can adversely affect my husband’s business so I just can’t.
