    Default What Do You Think Of This Facebook Petition?

    https://www.change.org/p/facebook-no...d-via-facebook

    A quick message to hunters. PLEASE READ.
    This is not an anti hunting petition. You have a legal right to hunt. What this petition is trying to achieve, is to have facebook acknowledge that certain images are not suitable for social media. This includes glorifying hunting by posing for smiling photos with 'trophies'.
    I understand / get some peoples feelings about "trophy" hunting, and I have my own as well. But all things being equal, if what they are doing is legal, ethical (which is different for everyone) then we don't really have room to judge what they post.

    As for the ramblings about "we are forced to see on our wall, feeds"

    Do you not know the people you have on your facebook? who they are, what they are about, what they like to do? If you have friends / co-workers / etc that you know hunt, good chance, their going to post a picture that may not be to your liking.

    What can you do to prevent that? don't "follow them" they can still be your friend on facebook, but don't subscribe to their page, don't turn on notifications for them, etc. Then it won't populate on your wall. We shouldn't be banned from posting things on our wall, because others don't know how to work theirs.

    I got into it with a co worker two years ago over bear hunting pictures / trail cam pictures I posted.

    Basically he said

    "So if I understand this correctly, you set out food, setup a camera, watch what times the bears come, give them more food, sit in hiding and ambush them, real sportsman like of you"

    I removed the comment shortly after, and he rebutted with "so much for freedom of speech"

    As to which I replied.

    "My facebook wall, is like a wall in my home, I can hang any type of artwork I see fit on there, so long as it's legal. If anyone should come into my home, and see something hanging on my wall they don't like, they can simply walk back out the door, and never return. I don't force people to come into my house, you come on your own terms, and you can leave on them as well"

    I know I'm not alone in sharing on social media the results whether they be successful or not of a good days hunt, whether it be twitter, facebook, my blog, here, or instagram.

    But does anyone not post, simply for these reasons?

    I have absolutely no problem with someone posting pictures of their hunt. I just limit my postings to hunting groups, etc.

    I wish they would outlaw "selfies" on Facebook!

    Hahahahahahha, selectively choosing what to sensor. Hypocrites at their finest - want freedom of expression and speech but only if it meets their expectations. This is why I don't waste my time on Social Media outside of OOD.

    There's some things we do because we should and other things we do because we can. The trick is to know the difference. It matters not whether we have our "rights" to post what we want,but,along with those "rights",we also have responsibilties to represent our outdoor/hunting lifestyle in a positive light. With the vast disconnect between society and the way our food is gathered and prepared,it would be wise of us not to allow anything to those know-nothing morons as ammo to use against us. Facebook is an abomination at the best of times. That's why I don't have a Facebook website.
    Society needs to stop bending to the will of the delusional.

    A bit misguided me thinks. If I pose with a trophy = bad. If I pose with a doe or a squirrel = ? . Any way I like the way you handled that guy who confronted you TR. That was a classy response.

    I don't think the Facebook poster meant "trophy" in the same context as we hunters do. I think it was just meaning posting any dead animal pictures...Trophy hunting to some means huge horns or beards or whatever. To me, anything I take is a trophy !

    First question would be is it valid? Haft the stuff being shared is false.

    Second why shouldn't they be allowed to have a say in what people post?

    I don't own it, I can tell them how I feel, but it is their site.

    Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening.

    So much b#$%hing and moaning about what folks post on FB. I couldn't really care less about any of it.

    However, i do understand that there could be "friends" who really like following me and the exploits of my nutso family... but don't want to see pics of the game i take.

    Facebook could implement a photo classification system where i could tag my pics as "Hunting" and they'd be blanked out "spoiler" style for folks who don't enjoy looking at that stuff.
