A rather silly poll considering facebook is the NSA of social media. Of course
people are being careful what they say there. We have been warned about people
who have expressed opinions, and paid the price. Are they trying to
tell us that comments on articles are irrelevant to promote their agenda, which
many may object to on internet comment sections? It's a fair question.
These days, your employer can fire you for expressing your opinion. Even worse,
hiring can be affected by your posts. The hirer does not have to say what they
found 'offensive', or even tell you they used it in the decision. So
indirectly, we have a chilling effect on the First Amendment by this situation.
