It has been really interesting on the so-called social networks lately. Personally I prefer to call them business strategic networks because most people are sharing more than “I walked the dog and made dinner” comments. But what I have noticed between the myriad of tiny URL’s to view and the teleclasses and seminars being touted, is the noise of politics, race and religion.
Now I am one who respects everyone’s right to believe as they choose, my objection is when they use the social networks to push those views on others. I know there are plenty of political forums to practice that in, likely lots of religious blogs and sites seeking content, and surely there is a wealth of racially focused avenues online to practice this as well. This is a friendly professional setting and there are those that abuse that opportunity.
The point to the networks, as I see it, is to provide opportunities to connect to others, to share relevant and pertinent information, to be a resource or find a resource. It is not about your personal views on topics as controversial as politics, religion, and race. Keep it professional, make it of value.
