    Default wdyt about people posting the f and c word on fb?

    so what do you think about people posting f*** and c*** on facebook.

    Do you hate it?
    Dont care?
    Do you post those words on fb?

    personally i hate it. i have 3 cousins on fb who constantly use those words and it bugs me. especially when they put something like...

    the next person who f***s me over or uses me i wont be so nice. or

    your a f****** c*** dog and your gonna die.

    stuff like that. i dont mind if people swear on fb or whatevs but its just the context in which they use it.

    Don't like it. I usually delete person of they were just an acquaintance or old school mate. If good friend I will right a comment and mention the language offensive to them in person.

    I don't like anyone being aggressive on FB, but don't mind cussing when it's not in an aggressive context.

    I've used F*** once in the past year, in a political status for shock value. It was an awesome status. I have a greater written vocab than being limited to such simple language.

    If you don't like it, hide their statuses or delete them.

    Because they aren't in primary school and are adults AND it's their Facebook - I couldn't care less.

    I think people get a little bit precious about the 'f word' to be honest.

    I swear all the time on Facebook.
    I swear all the time irl too.
    My updates are usually light hearted though, not an aggressive nature

    I'm on both sides. While I agree with the fact that it's their FB and they can use it however they choose, if it's a non-stop usage of swearwords then I'll hide their statuses or unfriend them.

    Swear words are much better when used once it a blue moon to make an impact. If people stop being so precious about the F word then it won't be many years before someone will be posting "people get a little bit precious about the C word". Sadly both of these words are used more often than I'd like in our household thanks to my husband's employment in the construction industry. *sigh*

    Doesn't bother me unless it's constant and mixed in with bad/phonetic spelling and poor grammar

    My Facebook usually has a few swear words and LOADS of funny pics with swearing in them.

    If anyone on my FB has a problem with it, they can delete me.

    Vile.

    Luckily I don't know many people who do it, and those that do tend to be the ones who don't use punctuation/ use textspeak, so I hide them pretty quickly
