Social Media Users Worn Out, Stressed Out by Political Content (Report

Posted by @DanHinmon, Oct 28, 2016

In case any of you have considered weighing in on politics on your hospital social media in these final days before the election, Pew Research has some advice for you: DON’T DO IT!

According to a recent survey:

39 percent of respondents have blocked or unfriended other social media users or changed settings in order to see fewer posts from them over politics—31 percent changed settings and 27 percent blocked or unfriended other users. 60 percent of those who resorted to those steps said it was due to political content that they found offensive.
