What percentage of people on your friends list

have either different political views or different religious views than you do? How close does that match up to the friends you have in the real world?

  • A few have the same views. But the majority I do not know. The group I am most active in (who are the majority of my friends list )don't ever discuss politics. We all get along great, we all care for each other, we do not talk politics, it helps stop drama.

  • Unless we are in groups together then I have no idea how they fall along those lines. It's about the same as real life.

  • i'd say its about a 60/40 split, in both worlds...60% align politically with myself.

  • Off the top of my head probably 40%ish have different political/religious beliefs than I do. Pretty similar to real life.

  • I don't have a big load of friends on my list, but the majoriy of them believe in God, I'm just not sure what religion they are.

  • Oh and I only have 1 so-called friend in real life that's Catholic like me. No one else believes in God..weird huh?

  • Seeing as I spend most of my time in the politics section, the majority of my CM friends are closely aligned with my views. As for real-life, I'd say about 60% of my friends share my views....the other 40% consist mainly of the teachers I work with, and I KNOW better than to discuss politics in THAT environment! LOL

  • Roughly 35%.

  • Religious? No idea. I don't normally talk religion with people. It's something private between themselves and their family.

  • Gosh, I'm not sure. I'd say at least 45% share my belief system or something close to it. Political ideas? No clue. I have a ton of friends.
