I'm pretty private on Facebook. It's probably because I keep mostly to my family, my close friends and my work buddies. Well, and because I'm an Atheist. I suppose I am pretty vocal in my politics and beliefs against religion as well. My question is, Do you want to be FB friends with people on this site? Are you a private person or more open to it. I consider Agnostic.com and Facebook two different worlds and hardly use FB since I found this site. But I also believe there are a lot of people it would be cool to follow.
I use FB a LOT but I find nobody's views on religion or politics are ever changed by a FB post. I use my social media in a very social way. If it is political and I wouldn't stick a bread fork in someone's eye over it, it won't show up on personal newsfeed. I prefer to devote my political energy to local races and donations to help candidates who are in my wheelhouse get elected or stay elected.
Here you can say God sucks and no one will loose their minds. If you say such thing on Facebook then you will get verbally slaughter..... now, the ironic side of events, you can say silly things on Facebook like calling hot a girl and no one would care and here, some people would loose their minds....let alone discussing politics which has become a new religion where the hatred keeps picking up by the day. Long story short, different forums and similar situations can happen either way
Since I've been here, i also use fb less & prefer to follow my new friends here. I have friends & fam on fb, but I've only invited a few to join here. Quite frankly because I have a general disdain for mainstream hyped-up, distracting tardery. The bigots, trolls, ghetto mentality types don't interest me at all.
I agree with your two different worlds analogy. For me, Facebook has degraded into a unending barrage of stories revealing the atrocities Trump and his trumpsters are imposing on what should be (but clearly is not) a rational populous. My ratio of Agnostic to Facebook time is more then ten to one. I think there is a "follow" option for this site. I have no desire to waste additional time "following" someone on Facebook
Lol One of my face book friends pointed me to this site. She is very vocal, scathing in her religious comments. She’s also very vocal about trans issues. So yes, I’d absolutely be FB friends with people on this site. That said I rarely post anything about myself. I respond to other people’s posts.
Oh my goodness. Brand new to the site and I know I found where I have always beed. ly I never new this existed. I know now where I will be most the time. Face book fuck book find a slut book ruin your life book. I know fb is for old friends and . and bitching, and posting food you ate. But you can actually have write and listen to intelligent conversation here. It's like I died and went to internet "heaven" LMAO.
I’m on Facebook a lot,in fact I found this site through an ad in my newsfeed. i’m not religious so thought it would be interesting to join. I live in the UK so feel I’m probably in a minority on this site and I get the impression it’s more of a big thing to say you are an atheist in the US especially in certain parts than it is here. The main difference between this site and facebook is with Facebook 99% of friends are people I know but on here I don’t know anyone so it’s a good way to make new friends. My posts here have been much more sensible than they can be on Facebook where my weird sense of humour ,sorry humor, can get out of hand.
