GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- If you use social media, you've probably seen the political ads that can sometimes be funny or annoying. It seems to be the preferred medium for getting your message across.
"It has immediacy. When you put something out there, it reaches a certain amount of friends and family that may be following you," says WZZM Social Media expert Joseph VanHarken. "You get that instant gratification that my voice has been heard."
But, does it sway your vote one way or the other? I asked the question on WZZM 13's Facebook page.
One hundred sixteen people responded. Jerry Jarsma says, "They don't sway, they annoy. I'm tired of them. I've done my homework."
Jeni Herbert says, "Go ahead and express your opinion. It's your Facebook, but sometimes, they are so annoying."
VanHarken says you have options to deal with political posts. You can hide them or block a certain person. You can also unfriend them. But, if you want to just deal with it all at once, download a filter. There are several available on the internet.
