    Should you send a message over facebook when you want to resolve a problem with someone?

    I just wrote a hub about this subject with my thoughts on the subject, but I am wondering what everyone else thinks.

    You can, but make sure you know the consequences of your words and think twice about saying them

    Surely it's better to talk to someone face to face to resolve any issues you have with them?

    I think it must not be posted on facebook. Might be the person with whom you want to resolve does not like it. Second reason is- of course we will others' opinion, but this is not sure that their opinion will be right, actually they think only about in what way you have told them the story.
    So it is better to talk to your friends and kins, they can give you better advice.

    I dont think facebook is the right forum for resolving personal issues, too visible to everyone else, ergo everyone else will have an opinion and get involved and also beware the written word which can be taken out of context.  Best way to resolve a problem, pick up the phone or meet face to face.

    Yeah, i guess it would work, but using this means of communication, you must really "spill the best words you can find" in expressing your desire to settle things up with him/her.

    Facebook or email, they are the same - a form of written communication. It all depends if writing is good enough method for the problem you trying to resolve.
    In most cases face to face is much better approach as it shows your respect for other person. However, sometimes it's hard to talk, so hard that a person may never say anything. Then writing is a way forward - it's better than nothing.

    I think it all depends on the person who you have the problem with and also what type of problem. Some people may be offended that you did not take the time to talk to them in person about the problem but others may prefer to resolve an issue over Facebook. Sometimes when you sit down and think about what to write you can communicate a little bit better rather than getting caught up in the moment.

    First of all, anyone that does that is nothing more than a coward.  People use FaceBook, Twitter, MySpace (who is still on that, oh by the way) and any other social medium to do the avoidable -deal with issues.  We are who we are because of the things that we do, so to know a person that thrives on the interaction of it, you have to know that they'll use that same methodology of interaction to avoid issues that THEY may be wrong in.  Break by text; easy to do and avoids the 'why' of it all.  Argue in FaceBook inbox; easy to do because then you're not dealing with the emotions that may confront what you did to cause the issue in the first place.  The truth of matter is a lot of us are nothing but cowards and we use these "social mediums" to hide from the one thing that can change us into better people -the truth.
