My wife runs her business solely via Facebook. Never had a bad comment or uninformed comment.

On the other hand the sector I work in has a variety of Facebook groups which attract comments bordering on the obscene.

It's usually interest-based pages and groups that attracted the worst of the worst.

If Kelvin went back 10-ish years across here and a couple of other forums, there could be some interesting cases, stories, and outcomes

The truth is, I've been as critical of Fabian as anybody, but I wouldn't say he has been "trolled" like the Mustang, or like Roland Dane.

It is, after all a fair question of just where Fabian has been while his teammate has been stealing all the glory.

If you bank the cheque that comes with a job that involves a little bit of fame, whatever the size of the pond, you have to take the good with the bad. So my message to Fabs: suck it up princess.

I really like the way Garth Tander engages on social media - he has his detractors but he comes across as very honest and the social media reaction to his dumping recently was informative.

Mr Tander isn't afraid to call people out when they're having a shot at him.

But you've got to have the runs on the board...

there's no shame in using those facilities. or just using your public profiles to post, nobody forces him to read his comments or those on team or series accounts.
I often wonder why those who say they are subject to internet bullying simply do not turn it off and lead a normal life. When are people going to learn that there is a growing problem of "professional" trolls who just want to wind people up because they get a kick out of it. The off switch fixes that properly.

Social media can work both ways.

Both good and bad

But generally the Bad outweighs the good as most keyboard warriers would never say to someones face what they say online about them.
