An expert says social media websites like Facebook can hurt and help “campaign hangover.”
"Campaign hangover" is the experience of winning, and messages that are gloating about the win can annoy those happy and unhappy with the election results.
People generally feel like their online posts are anonymous since there is no face-to-face contact so they tend to forget the important communication skills of conflict resolution and empathy.
This has led to friends either blocking each other’s posts or even unfriending others that have opposing views.
*** But the websites also help people get over the hangover by posting their thoughts.
