‘Leave cyber mucking to itself’

No, I think Couns. Bob Masse and Gordy Robson have it right and are not active on their Facebook pages

Re: Social media not always so social (The News, Jan. 15).

They say a healthy living axiom of our modern age is ‘never read the comments section.’

That can be extended to some Facebook groups and internet forums, especially the political ones, which often degenerate to self-indulgence and venting.

It is good for municipal politicians to engage with the public, but their time is valuable and there are more constructive ways to engage.

No, I think Couns. Bob Masse and Gordy Robson have it right and are not active on their Facebook pages.

I understand its power as a tool for dialogue, but that merit is completely dependent on its users and I would suggest abandoning the good intentions and leaving the cyber muck to itself.
