Consumer News: Nearly half of social media users are tired of seeing political posts

PhotoAre you already tired of seeing political posts and tirades on your social media feed? If so, you’re certainly not alone. 

A recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center shows that 46 percent of social media users are “worn out” by online political posts and discussions. That marks an increase of 9 percent since the researchers asked that question before the 2016 presidential election. 

While the next election is still well over a year away, many social media users are already exhausted with the political content they’re seeing online. A much smaller percentage (15 percent) say they’re actually enjoying the political coverage they see on social media. Approximately 40 percent of respondents said they had no strong feelings one way or the other.

Among the two major parties, Republicans were more likely than Democrats to say they were worn out by online political posts (51 percent vs. 43 percent).

One of the primary reasons that social media users feel fatigued may have to do with the general negativity that they ascribe to political posts. Over two-thirds of survey respondents say they feel frustrated with talking to people online that they don’t agree with politically.
