Bridey Heing in an article for XOJane:
I also didn’t take very seriously the norm of not addressing things like racism and sexism on a friend’s feed because, to me, it was always shocking when someone I enjoy spending time with was suddenly bigoted.
Bridey's story is all too common. Like all social networks, Facebook will reach a critical mass and collapse upon itself. Just like Friendster and just like MySpace. There is nothing new under the sun.
Bullying is real and it's a behavior that eventually ruins everything it touches. I honestly hope more people find the will and strength to drop off of Facebook. Something I've wanted to do myself for about 2 years now.
