  1. Can anything be done with the cussing used on Facebook? I am possibly deleting Facebook, which is my connection with my family.

  2. I’m afraid there is not much you can do besides requesting individuals to tone down their language (tactfully of course). The other option would be to “unfriend” the specific offenders. If it is just a few people who are cussing, it might be worth deleting these people so you don’t have to listen to them any more. Or at least view their comments.

    Otherwise, you’re stuck with the friends you have made on Facebook!
