Does anyone else have facebook friends that just don't seem to give a shit? There isn't a comment about it on my update page and hasn't been all weekend. Needless to say, I'm disappointed.

The only facebook friends I have who care are ones who I've met through LJ. My irl friends haven't said a word.

Don't you know, international affairs are only worth following when they're ~*~trendy~*~

I don't even bother updating my Facebook once I'm not at school. No one cares about politics anyway.

That's because most don't know the political history of Iran or any other details about the coutnry. They don't want to sound ignorant because they haven't been following the news.

I'm not a big Facebooker, but most of my FB friends are my family, and they're all pretty politically active and do care, so...

Then again, I've only had a FB for a month and got it because my mom got one and was so proud of how hip she was and got sad when she searched for me to friend me and couldn't find me, so I mostly made it to make her happy that I could be her FB friend. LOL, my mom is so cute.

God, yes. I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one that gave a shit.
Thank god for ontd_p.

I haven't mentioned it on Facebook, but mostly because I don't generally use it as a political forum.

Yep right here. It's really quite depressing.

Most of my Facebook friends are my rl friends from Finland so idk, for me it feels like even less people care about it because the news are hardly talking about it anyway.

ETA: Not that Facebook is that important anyway but generally, too.

Why would you expect stuff on facebook? I don't know, I haven't used facebook for like a year since it's gone to shit, but when I did I never posted political stuff.

That would be me. Also, work doesn't give a shit. And Mom ignored my question when I emailed her this morning.

I guess it really is up to me/us, isn't it?

None of my friends on FB give a shit. It's downright depressing. They'll flip out when their own rights are infringed upon, but other people? Who fucking cares. I'm going to keep updating anyway~

My friends don't really seem to care or know about anything. It doesn't help that the news around here is all "Obama on healthcare" and "remember the floods last year?"

at the bank yesterday, there was a tv on with the news playing. it showed people protesting in iran (but it didn't have any sound), so my mom looks at it, turns to me and is like "what's that about?"

... that's about as close as i came to a facebook person asking me about it lol. and in my mother's defense she doesn't watch the news/have access to ontd_political like i do~
