If you’ve sensed over the years that your liberal friends are “unfriending” you on Facebook, you might be right.
A new Pew Research study concludes that “consistent liberals” are the most likely ideological group in America to block or defriend someone else because they disagree with that person’s politics.
“Roughly four-in-10 consistent liberals on Facebook have blocked or defriended someone because they disagreed with something that person posted about politics,” write the authors of the study, titled “Political Polarization and Media Habits.”
It is true with me, I have had 16 liberals unfriend me since I landed on Facebook…. [ I appreciate the ones that have stuck with me, no really! I enjoy conversing with the other side]
