Are you part of the problem or part of the solution ?

Has anyone of you considered what it means to put a “positive” or “negative” emoji on a post or comment? I opened my FB account in Oct 2008 and have never looked it up until now. The text below outlines what FB does to individuals who make posts that get positive or negative emoji.  It appears to me that FB will  THROTTLE the sharing of the post to others and/or maybe THROTTLE the sharing of the owner’s entire FB page. Apparently when someone posts an emoji .. all FB is doing is creating a profile for/on you as to what FB shares with you and others – particularly those who get a certain number of NEGATIVE emojis. Most of the things I post/share on FB is from my blog. My goal has always been to educate and motivate those within the community. A lot of what I share, those in the community may not like – but – it is what others are saying about those in the community. The community needs to be aware of what “enemies” of the community are saying about the community and/or actions that are done or plan on being done against the community.  The majority of the FB pages that are orientated toward the pain community are “closed” or “private” and there are probably several thousand FB pages. I often see multiple times in my notifications when someone has made the same post on multiple FB pages.  Those in closed/private groups many very well throttle some posts made on the FB page because of FB’s policies on negative emojis.  Others can do what they want with their FB pages, but I see my personal choices as deleting negative emoji  on my comments, just stop sharing my blog posts to other FB pages. I own the domain that my blog is on and there is no censorship there – other than my own. Everything that I post, starts out on my blog and everything that I post on a internet site that belongs to me.. IS SHAREABLE… if I share something on a FB page that is closed/private… you have to click on the post and go back to my blog in order to share it. There is 12 or so links at the bottom of each post as to where the post can be easily shared.  How many of us had our parents tell us that if you can’t say something nice about someone… don’t say anything at all… this seems to apply here? 

What does it mean to “Like” something on Facebook?

Clicking Like below a post on Facebook is a way to let people know that you enjoy it without leaving a comment. Just like a comment, anyone who can see the post can see that you liked it.
For example, if you click Like below a friend’s video:
People who can see the video will be able to see that you liked it.
The person who posted the video will get a notification that you liked it.
When you like something, this lets us know to show you other content that we think you’d also like to see.

Is there a way to dislike something?

You can react to a post or comment (example: ) to express a specific response to something. Reactions include Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Sad and Angry.
Posts that receive a lot of Angry reactions tend to be a factor in negative experiences on Facebook. We use Angry reactions to evaluate and rank content in Feed and reduce those negative experiences. For example, if we see that a post has a lot of Angry reactions, this may affect whether the post will be shown to other people.

Other ways to dislike something

You can hide, snooze or unfollow a post or report something that you dislike. This lets us know that you don’t want to see similar posts in the future.

  1. You always have post very good information and it most certainly will help somebody in someway or another. If I don’t reply I am probably tired and in pain and just self absorbed in my petty thoughts.
