Disclaimer: I feel the need to rant. That being said...climbing onto my soapbox to rant.
When it comes to Social Media, if you find you’re friending and unfriending people, following and unfollowing people all the time based on someone’s thoughts and ideas, you just don’t get it.
You aren’t expected to like everyone’s views, but you are expected to accept them. It’s not that you don’t have a right to limit what you can hear, it’s that rights aren’t the point – you aren’t being a reasonable, tolerant, open person – all social media values – if you block out everything you don’t agree with.
People are people, with different tastes, opinions, likes and dislikes. When people post things you don’t agree with to their walls, and it shows up in your newsfeed, accept it. If you can’t, you really don’t belong in social media at all – delete your account and go where only people like you are.
Stepping down and taking a bow. I feel so much better now.

YouTube can also be considered as social media and the comments sections there are pretty much a free for all with no moderation whatsoever, which is the way it should be if we are to live in an uncensored society.
I posted a negative comment about PewDePie on his 10 billion views video which resulted in me being called a nigga, a faggot, a motherf*cker and numerous other suggestions related to my mother´s anatomy and my sexual orientation.
Hilarious doesn't quite cover it.
