Does posting about the election on Facebook actually do anything? Or are you just wasting everyone’s time? Well, a website recently polled 10,000 users, and about 90% said they’ve NEVER changed their opinion because of something a friend posted.
That includes 94% of Republicans, 92% of Democrats, and 85% of Independents. But apparently that means about 10% of people HAVE. So you can keep fighting the good fight I guess?
Here are four more stats from the survey that are kind of interesting . . .
- Republicans are slightly more likely to post about politics than Democrats. 39% compared to 34%. And 26% of Independents said they’ve done it.
- Republicans are also slightly more likely to JUDGE someone for it. 61% said they judge people based on the political stuff they post, compared to 54% of Democrats, and 34% of Independents.
- Democrats are more likely to UNFRIEND you for something you post. 18% said they’ve done it, compared to 12% of Republicans, and 9% of Independents.
- Most of us agree Facebook isn’t the best place to discuss the election. Only 36% of Republicans said it’s “appropriate” to post about politics, compared to 31% of Democrats, and just 21% of Independents.
You know how when you go to someone’s house, you immediately start judging it . . . even without realizing you’re doing it? Yeah . . . everyone does that to you too.
A new survey found the average person has totally judged you and made up their mind about how you live within 26 SECONDS of entering your place. Here are 10 of the snap judgments they use to come up with their opinion . . .
- The smell.
- The amount of clutter.
- Any stains or marks on the walls.
- How nice the couch is.
- The decorations on the walls.
- Whether the way you decorated is modern or stylish.
- Piles of mail stacked up.
- Whether shoes are arranged neatly or scattered everywhere.
- Kids toys lying around.
- The amount of random dust.

26-year-old Ellanora Baidoo of Brooklyn, New York has been trying to get a divorce from her husband for YEARS. His name is Victor Blood-Dzraku. They haven’t lived together since 2011 . . . and she has no idea where he is.
And that’s been a big problem, since her lawyers can’t serve him with divorce papers if they can’t find him. Even their private investigators couldn’t track him down.
But Victor IS active on Facebook. So Ellanora went to court and asked if she could be the first person EVER to serve divorce papers over Facebook.
A judge just granted them permission last week, and they sent him the papers in a Facebook message. So far, he hasn’t responded.
The judge told them to try two more times . . . and if he STILL doesn’t acknowledge it, the divorce will be official anyway.
So we’re like two legal cases away from being able to get divorced just by switching your relationship status on Facebook.
