I'm actually quite interested in what people have voted and why.

I love seeing the "I've voted" posts. Everyone should vote.

HildurOdegard Thu 23-Jun-16 18:44:33

I vote for you. Sick of the whining.

Calm down dear, turn off Facebook and have a nice cup of tea

I'm interested in people's reasoning. We're making important choices. I value the debate.

I came of FB for 10 days after suffering early referendumitis. It was great.

Just went back on today to post a link to #keithsmum jokes. grin

I agree Broken. It is important and I'm enjoying reading thoughtful arguments. I find Facebook better than telly. There are some very informed arguments. On telly it's just bickering and soundbites designed for the lowest common denominator.

Out of interest, what type of content would you like to see on Facebook? Because to me this is so much better than most of the things people normally post - it actually matters!

Theimpossiblegirl Thu 23-Jun-16 18:51:31

It's important. I'm glad to see people are voting. You don't have to read the essays.

KateLivesInEngland Thu 23-Jun-16 18:53:57

No, I'm with you Op.
I know what I think and I don't need justification or abuse from the world and his wife. I will be very glad when it's no longer the number one topic of conversation.

Better than pictures of someone's dinner or 'I've lost 0.001 lbs this week' posts?

I think the only positive of the Eu Ref is the amount of folk exercising their democratic right and duty by voting smile

LadyCallandraDaviot Thu 23-Jun-16 19:19:19

I do think everyone should vote, so the fb check-ins saying 'I've voted' are great, but I'm not sure about the long essays either

I hear you! I have been reading them all day " off to vote" " well I voted in/out & an essay of why they voted that way"

I really don't care how anybody voted I will hear the results tomorrow, we live in a democracy and I'm not going to argue on Facebook with somebody that voted opposite to me. People have the right to vote however they see fit.

I'm off FB just now for this reason amongst others. It's not as bad this time around as it was up here in the 2014 referendum. I was anxious, in tears, couldn't sleep. I feel the anxiety is spread over the country this time and I'm not so bothered. Interested to see that a lot of the worries/issues/frustrations of this referendum are what we were dealing with then and no one else have a toss

OrangesandLemonsNow Thu 23-Jun-16 19:28:21

If you are on twitter have a look at #dogsatpollingstations.

Might give you a laugh grin

ohgoshIdontknow Thu 23-Jun-16 19:34:35

Totally agree with you OP.

It's fucking me right off too

Daisy I love all the politics chat today but I do know what you mean. By the end of the Scottish indyref if I so much caught sight or sound of one more earnest essay entitled 'my journey to Yes' I think I'd have chewed my own eyeballs out.

YABU if you don't want to read people's reasons then don't! No need for the anger. Some people do care what others think
