I will not get into arguments with random people on facebook

I will not get into arguments with random people on facebook…I will not get into arguments with random people on facebook…I will not get into arguments with random people on facebook…I will not get into arguments with random people on facebook..

It is tempting though.  You see someone post something and you feel you could shine a light on the topic and help them see the other side of the debate.   You see most of their friends agreeing with them and you think “Wow, I could enlighten a whole group of people.” Just walk away.  Don’t even for one second think it will work!  People do not want to be enlightened or have new information shared with them.  They do not want to get into a lively debate.  They probably don’t like you that much, and they certainly don’t like you showing up with your message of disagreement.  Especially not in front of their friends.  

So what can do you do to shine a light on the other side of the topic?  Find an article and post the link to your wall.  There.  Less conflict, less imposing and now your friends can come along and like your post, if they do so agree.  🙂
