View Diary: Are Kossacks, or Lurkers, in charge in THAT way? (228 comments)

  •  Many reasons. (10+ / 0-)

    As can readily be seen in the comments of any diary with "Facebook" in the title, a large proportion of the community looks down its nose at the sheeple who use Facebook (you can tell by my tone that their critiques annoy me -- but it's clear that there are a lot of them).

    Also, many folks have personal or professional incentives not to parade their ideology in front of their friends, family, work associates, etc.

    To me, a share is an unqualified endorsement of the content -- so I don't share something unless I think that contains sufficient original content to add real value to the conversation, its facts are accurate, and its logic is cogent. Many diaries fall short of that, primarily because the most common recc'd diary is a link to offsite original content, sprinkled with a touch of commentary and just enough block quotes not to run afoul of fair use. I'd rather just link to the original source.

    Anyhow, there are a lot of reasons.  

    Hope you fall on your burger and fries.
