But I can see its draw backs too. For one thing, most of my friends on Facebook share similar views of the world that I do. It is like you are in a Facebook bubble. None of my friends on Facebook are Nazis or known sex offenders. Why? Because I don't know anyone who fits these categories or if I did, I would quickly drop them as friends. Reading my Facebook feed, almost everyone is a nice, kind of progressive person, anti war, anti gun, pro refugee, pro immigrant, pro diversity, who is not too judgmental- just like me. Oh sure my Facebook friends and I might disagree about a few things, but in general you would say that my Facebook friends and I are generally in synch. But there are Nazis on Facebook as well. Their news feed on Facebook is full of vitriol and hate. Their Facebook friends would support their ideals. And rarely does my world touch theirs. Facebook is flawed if we want to see where public opinion stands because the news we see is from the viewpoint of our own circle.
