Posting on FaceBook

Recommended Posts

I know that there are HPCers who are active on Twitter under other handles (When they arent being suspended) but does anyone post HPC type articles and opinions on FB as themselves.

I do and in doing so discovered a mate of mine is a very active Australian HPCer. There is a parallel Australian community just like this. He is very vocal about it on FaceBook and is well known for it being his thing in his circle of friends.

Anyway I always knew it was largely viewed as conspiracy theory type stuff. I feel it is resented by those who have bought, but strangely resented by those priced out. The priced out appear to aspire to one day fill their boots too and resent the fact it may end before they get the chance. They do not realise or probably even care that they will at least be able to buy their own home.

Anyway as s*ht starts to get a bit real, I am feeling that I will get a backlash from those who own if it happens, as if I somehow want it out of spite or jealousy. They are completely unaware of the wider fall out of an overheated property market and why a HPC would be a positive thing. 

What are your experiences with this?

Hpc is unpopular with the masses, even though it would benefit millions of uk residents. 

Only my commie/corbynite friends understand this ans support the idea of a hpc, but, if they had the cash, would probably fill their boots with btl!! Typical socialism really

Couldn't give a ##££ what the btlers/rampers/idiots/selfish ccccs think to be honest.

 

One thing I learned in life is you can choose your friends. If you don't like someone and they arr your supposed friend by way of longevity, you really don't have to put up with them.

 

I know plenty people who think this party will never end I also kbow plenty who see it for what it is. I keep quiet on both fronts now...no one wants to hear it. The facts are...prices only go up...they really can't see the process behind it and why/how we are where we are.

 

I've distanced myself from the btlers I knew and don't speak much to the smug people from London who are now in eye watering levels of debt.

 

Best keep quiet in polite company and even quieter when it does go belly up, that's my advice...and buy a bloody great big house debt free just to annoy them.

 

So long as you know you are right is all that counts.

 

Plus if you are a gobs##te you end up being suspended from no end of stuff.

 

I did start a Facebook page, got attacked very quickly...not so much on twitter tho. Odd 

The time to be shouting out has passed I think. Everyone knows its a bubble.it's time to sit back and watch and try to protect any wealth you have as best u can.

 

Good luck and an interesting post.

No I don't do it all the time. And keep it pretty mainstream.

Thats why I dont do it too often and keep it mainstream. Done my fair share of this face to face and its paaaiiinful.

I never get any resentful comments on FB. Just an eerie silence.

I don't have a personal Facebook or twitter account so people don't really have to listen to me ranting on.

These U.S. companies are worth billions just because if the volumes of people whobuse them...effectively the people are their asset...do you remember them giving out shares to the account holders at IPO time?

 

People really are stupid

I rarely comment on my FB acquaintances as they are mainly former classmates, colleagues who I rarely keep in touch with otherwise.

Happy to share my HPC opinion with my friends/colleagues who I see daily.

Do not congratulate with 25 years of debt slavery when my FB friends post picture of new keys.

Laughed but did not say anything when my college friends posted their sob story about trying to evict a problem tenant through courts.

I find the opposite is true. One of the left wing people I vaguely know wrote a post railing against S24 (calling it landlord tax), saying it was the tories crushing the little guy! I can't do political arguments on Facebook for work reasons, but sent him a PM explaining why it was a good thing. Turns out he was saving a deposit to buy his first house, so was massively in his interest. So utterly thick and had of thinking. Now posting simplistic stuff about Tories and Corbyn.

I had a similar thing on twitter. A leftie that I follow ranting about the landlord tax. I had to explain how it would bring down prices, remove the tax breaks that landlords get over OOs and how it would help him as a 25 year old living at home with mum and dad buy his own home. In his mind the landlord tax meant rents going up and him having to pay more rent all his life. Thankfully he listened.

As for Facebook, I've ranted about house prices for years. A few of my friends like the statuses from time to time. A cousin doesn't like my rants as it reminds her she has "lost" money on a new build house she bought. And one friend often tells me if I "spent less time renting I could have earned the money to buy a house", little does he know I have enough to buy a house. I just don't want to at current prices. A few of my friends think I'm some poor person with no money because of my ranting - can't wait to invite them all to a house warming and brag about my lack of mortgage :D

I'm certainly know as the person who rants about property prices by my friends. One even apologised to me for buying a house recently! Wished him luck and said he had to do what he felt was best.

This rang a chord. And although I am from the dark side I absolutely explain F2F to those who are interested why S24 is the most precise and inspired taxation I have seen. It makes my plans change....I will lose money as house prices ebb away then fall.....but S24 is like a piece of art and to me is  perfect response to help many people struggling to buy. Genuinely yet to find anyone who thinks its a bad thing  

And like you my apologetic friend knew he just over paid for his first home....but I definitely did not judge (his choice and his money) and I just apologised for the homes I already hoard. 

(I don't justify my position and am on HPC because 118 sent me here). 

Not sure if I have seen any rampers or Hpcers on Facebook. Just pictures of my mates food on his meal out....or an old school friend stating an emotion in the hope someone will ask her if they are ok ??

Facebook is suffering from people becoming more publicly neutral. Fewer people are commenting, liking and sharing posts. What's happening now is someone posts something public and the debate is taken offline or to a closed forum such as what's app. Too many arguments are started over so and so's FB post that now a days it's safer to post nothing

Suffering?  Facebook is great for sharing photos (check privacy settings etc) with friends, saying I like the weather, here is a funny video etc.  It is not a great place to debate politics, the way the comments work doesn't help.

I have noticed from facebook that people's views are often very incoherent e.g. someone who is anti immigration, even blames the rise in his wife's pension age on immigration which is 100% untrue* - votes green (I have lots of other examples).  Also 1% of my friends believe 9/11 was an inside job.

The decision was because they had to equalize the age and didn't want to let men retire earlier.

Have you noticed a decline in the under 35s posting on facebook? Sure they are browsing but not engaging with the content. 

https://www.forbes.com/sites/paularmstrongtech/2017/02/14/facebook-users-posted-a-third-less-content-in-2016-than-in-2015/#403aff19776d

Users are engaging less on Facebook: User engagement was lower than 2015 levels - a 15.14% drop in engagements per post.

Basic engagement dropped: Likes, Comments, and Shares saw large decreases in 2016, 7.87% Likes per post, 37.47% less Comments per post, and 27.8% drop in Shares per post.

For example BBQ at the weekend, group photo taken by a guest who uploaded it to FB and two of the other guests grumbled about it.
