do you ever say mean things on facebook to get rid of frustrations?

I have a habit of going on facebook when someone frustrates me. I usually put up a status ranting about how much I hate people like this and that.. without mentioning the names. For some reason this makes me feel better, but I know people will judge me for saying mean things. I'm just wondering, do you ever do this or is it just me?

No! Never on FB. That's what anonymous blogs are for. Anything like that on FB always comes back at you in a bad way. It is there FOREVER too!

I usually just delete it if I regret making a post. But you are right, everyone sees it and remembers it if it's a very rude statement. Still I don't get satisfaction from talking on anonymous blogs. It just doesn't reach people as effectively.

sometimes, when the "Someone" does not show his/her face and make you feel bad indirectly.

Yes, that makes it impossible to approach them directly, right? I mean, if they talk behind your back, what can you do but talk behind theirs?

To tell the truth, rants on Facebook are dangerous, despite the fact that the only people who will ever read them are your friends. But Facebook has a flaw in which no only are your immediate friends able to see your rants but their other friends and other friends as well, that is if they make a remark, reply, like or dislike your comment. It will eventually appear to someone who knows who you are talking about. I don't know why it has to be like that. And another thing, just to get the juices started... What about blogs? Can't anyone anymore rant in blogs?

But no one reads blogs as much as facebook. I think it's a flaw in the system that people look at facebook comments like they're dangerous. Bosses shouldn't be allowed to fire people for what they say on it because it's not much different from what people say in daily life. Society is just stupid that way. They're okay with having things said behind your back but they're not okay with it being slightly more public. They say in america we have a freedom of speech, but facebook shows that the freedom is not existent.

No, I don't air out my frustrations in public/ facebook/ blogs. Instead, I air it out on my personal journal. I find that putting my frustrations in my status attracts a lot of unwanted attention. :)

Oh but if you are angry about a PARTICULAR someone,you'd better mind your words and don't let them know you are talking about he/she.Just use some vague words.

Actually I think it's a good habit.When you are very furious with something,it's better to creat an outlet for your negative emotion.It's good for your health you know. I do that all the time actually.And I always feel much better after that and I never care about what other people will think about me.I'm what I am.My good friends already know I have a bad temper,and I'm not going to pretend like I'm a gentle soft person. Just don't go overboard and say something TOO inflammatory.

I never put a status in my facebook wall account that involves my mood or perhaps whenever I am irritated with someone. I don't try to make it sound as if I want someone to realize that he/she is the one I am mentioning even without mentioning the name. I post it to their wall whenever I don't like something that they are doing which involves me especially when it is online. I prefer for it to be more direct. I find it cowardly of myself if I won't say it to their face. let them know about it and let others be ware of their behavior. Happy mylotting!

I'm sure there are other people like you. As for me though, I try not to say anything mean, especially in a public manner like posting on facebook. Because even if you don't say names, with enough questioning and analysis, people who know you and that person will eventually figure it out. And when that happens, it will bring a certain degree of shame to that person, and that in turn can only lead to bad things...

Well, to be honest I just don't say mean things on facebook for everyone to see because that's immature and childish. I don't want others in my business especially if there's something going on between me and the other person.

Hi. sashakiddo. Yes, I have done this a few times, all at one time before. I only made a few posts that was pointed towards all of my haters in this world. I told them what I thought and felt about them. I let them know that they are not hurting me, but they are hurting themselves. I only did this because some of the females that were on Facebook were acting like they were too good to be my friend or talk to me. They have always acted like this in school too. Now, that I have put this out, I no longer bother with posting anything else. I did not mention any names because people probably thought that I was just talking about haters in general.

No..I never do. There are people that are on the friend's list who I wouldn't really want to know my very personal feelings or business. I guess I have always been very choosy as to who I vent my frustrations too. There are very few people that I vent to.

No. I think it will make people thing u are negative. If u feel bad go out and shout. I normally go to temples and do pradakshan so that I forget my worries and get out of frustration.
