How To Handle Negative People on Facebook
We’ve all had this moment. You get a few minutes to yourself, and you wonder what’s going on in the world. Whether you’re standing in line at the post office or you’re kicking off your shoes and settling down at home after a long day, you reach for your device and hop onto Facebook.
You’re probably looking for a quick laugh, notification that friends have reacted to your posts, or an update about a situation in the news.
But when you scroll through your Facebook feed you see posts from people that make you roll your eyes. Instead of feeling connected and informed, you feel annoyed and bothered.
Maybe it’s a family member who is always venting about her personal life.
Maybe it’s a friend who pushes your political buttons. Or perhaps it’s someone who seems obsessed with making sure everything in her life seems perfect. We all have people on our friend's list whose posts leave us feeling cynical.
It ‘d be good only to have people on your friend's list whose posts you wanted to see and who you want to stay connected.
But sometimes, it’s just not worth the drama that you could face down the road if the people whose posts bother you are people you will connect with at times in real life.
Just like real life, sometimes you are forced to get along with people that you don’t want to deal with: co-workers, family members, or people in your social circle that you’re not that close with.
It’s just part of life, and sometimes learning to adjust to people we clash with ends up being a positive learning experience.
Fortunately, Facebook makes it a little easier for us to control our social experience than real life does. Did you know that you can hide posts from people you don’t want to see?
That’s right! You don’t have to unfriend them to stop seeing their posts in your feed.
