(CHRISTIAN POST) — Liberals are about twice as likely as conservatives or moderates to block, unfriend or hide someone on a social networking site, such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+, according to a new study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project.

Among all social networking site users, 18 percent have taken steps to avoid or remove content from someone in their social network due to political content. Among self-described liberals, 28 percent reported taking these steps. Only 16 percent of conservatives and 14 percent of moderates have taken steps to avoid the content of users over political issues.
