It is really good when people are comfortable to listen to the opinions shared by their friends and colleagues on social media.
- There is trust.
- There is open dialogue.
- There is an open platform to allow others to explain their positions.
- There is understanding that this thing is supposed to be social.
- There is no judgement.
- There is patience.
It would really be lovely if Facebook would encourage these values all the time. It would be even nicer if the opinions shared would be a two-way street and the situation wouldn’t escalate to negativity, frustration, anger or sadness. These platforms are called social for a reason. Let’s keep it that way.
