I really don’t know what the term means, but I do know this. It is a mistake to have your friends using all of the same social media that you do. I’ve offended someone on one of them, but I can’t go to the other social media to vent because they are on it as well. Fortunately, they are not here. I should probably apologize, but what I posted wasn’t that bad… in the grand scheme of things.

I recently posted on Facebook about it’s fine grain control of what your FB friends see and what you see. I hide most people from my status feed, because for the most part I don’t know them or haven’t had that much contact with them online. I’ve also created groups that only certain people can see what I post.  If I post something a little off color, I don’t want my father-in-law seeing it. Although I mostly group people into ultraconservative, conservative, and normal. I’ll occasionally make political posts to the conservative group. Normal sees everything.

I know that I’ve offended my conservative friends from time to time (and deliberately so). What I don’t understand is why they either don’t unfriend on Facebook me and maintain contact via email or hide me from their feed.  I’ve even explained in so many words how they can control what they see and who sees what they post.
