1. Take a Deep Breath
Breathing is important, and depending on the topic, you may get so shocked and angry that you forget this important skill. That is not a good thing.
2. Don’t be a Troll
You’re in this section to hear other’s viewpoints and possibly state your own or agree with another’s (or at least that’s what you’re telling yourself). Plus, there are already enough trolls out there.
3. Tread Lightly
Go to the Buzzfeed comments first. They tend to be a little less intense. Bonus: you can voice whether you agree and disagree without even having to comment by clicking the heart or broken heart button.
4. Leave Comment Section if the Urge to do This Happens
Wanting to punch someone? No.
How about a wall? No.
Complained to the computer at an above average volume? No. Good.
Proceed to the Facebook comments with caution.
5. Point of No Return
Okay now you’re in some dark waters. Let’s just hope the article was about kittens or sloths. Wait Politics? Crap…
6. For the Controversial Stuff
Find someone you agree with and click like! Now you know others share your viewpoint. No need to repeat what they just said. Resist the urge to comment on every single comment you disagree with!
7. Get the Hell Out of There
Get out while you still can!
