Facebook is currently awash with an ocean of political posts. Some are honest views of admiration, many are criticisms of the running candidates, some are sponsored candidacy messages and a lot of them are propaganda to push up or bring down one candidate or another. But one this is common with all of them — they’re all emotionally charged statements that spark even more emotional discussion.
It just underlies a strange facet of social media — we like to share our thoughts and minds, but venues like Facebook where we want everything to bright and sunny can suddenly turn into a war zone when we post about things that are very close to our hearts, and those of others. Your friends who you thought were peaceful, supportive faces suddenly transform into bloodthirsty savages out to make you eat your every word.
It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Veems is an excellent alternative as a platform for freedom of expression and just airing your honest opinions. One way Veems lets you do this is by posting secretly and anonymously with the Secret SMS feature.
