Do you ever post your political views on Facebook? Do you tweet them? Have you ever changed your opinion of a friend based on a political comment they posted on Facebook or Twitter?
The folks at market research firm Lab42 surveyed 500 social media users on politics and published an extensive infographic. Below is a piece of that infographic that focuses on posting and tweeting political comments. Approximately 51% of those surveyed have posted political messages on their Facebook walls and 36% have changed their opinions of friends based on political comments they posted on Facebook or Twitter.
If you’re looking for a job, refrain from posting or tweeting political comments.
