Talking Politics on Social Media
It has just been reported that Facebook is saying that it has detected a concerted effort to influence the mid-term elections via inauthentic accounts on its social media platform.
I have generally wondered this all along, but am now really wondering: who the hell is influenced by political posts on FB or, for that matter, this site? Perhaps I am susceptible to being influenced on a subconscious level, but I don't think so and I know for sure that I am not affected on a conscious level.
Do any of you see a politically oriented social media post and say to yourself, "dang, that person is right, I wasn't thinking this way, but in light of the information I just got from that post on FB [or The Lodge] I am going to vote for so and so." ?
