    I have closed my LinkedIn account, since I have no need to connect with the people instrumental to my previous work. It was just giving me unsolicited offers. Now I am weighing the benefits of Facebook. I thought I would post who I was, but what I need to post is what everyone else wants me to be. It is another opportunity for malware, and a huge inconvenience every time someone tries to check into my account. (I have their IP address and their street address). What good is it?

    Most of the screaming nutters can not be reasoned with (like most liberals and socialists). I indulge in the guilty pleasure of goading them. They remind me of puffer fish, puff up real good and the little mouths are furiously working to try and spit out a coherent sentence

    I am a proud hunter but I'm selective who I share my photos with- just like I'm selective about who I share other vacation/personal photos with. What i spend my personal time doing is private.

    Even though I'm part of the "younger generation," I don't participate in all the social media stuff. I see most facebook posts that people make as a sad attempt to gain self- validation from the masses.

    I think it's important to be smart about what you post- know your audience. If I'm working for a boss that doesn't like hunting or guns or whatever, I'm probably not going to highlight my interest in them with that person. No need to risk a career over a difference of opinion.

    I don't belong to any social media groups and have no plans to ever do so. I also don't care who sees my Trophy Pictures including my Ultra Liberal Children and their More Ultra Liberal offsprings. Anybody who wants to debate me on hunting will have to do it Face to Face instead of hiding behind their Computer

    Most people on facebook are just a bunch of far left or right political nut cases. They are kind of like the medium bore rifle people. They take up a lot of press but most people buy a 270 or 30-06. Not much need for either.:p :Cigar::A Stirring:

    For me, ironically it is the opposite. No one in my immediate circle are hunters and most are antis; I would never have seen such pics from my friends and family. However, seeing trophy pictures on the internet sparked a deep longing desire inside of myself to also go out to try and experience hunting. Had it no been for social media and hunting pictures being posted, I would never have discovered my passion and become a hunter myself.

    Social media can be a hassle. Facebook can be what you want it to be. Just only add the “friends” you really want and are interested in, lock the account where only friends can see and comment on your posts. It can be good for keeping up with old friends that is mostly what I use it for. Nowadays everyone just reposts stuff and doesn’t take the time to write their own thoughts. That is my beef lately.
    As for hunting pics I think we should all attempt to take more artistic non traditional trophy photos. It’s just the sensible thing to do.

    I agree. Post it. If they don't like it, so be it. U could hand out hundred dollar bills on the street corner and someone would complain about it. But on here, let me add, I'm on a lot of hunting sites and this has to be by far the best group of people.
