First off...stop fighting on social media. It's not worth it. If you see something that is upsetting you ask yourself, is it worth it to get into this? Most of the time the answer will be no, it's not. But if you do, here some tips.

1.  Ask yourself..."Why am I commenting on this?"  Odds are you're not going to change that person's mind.

2.  Don't say hateful things.  Instead, try to say something witty or clever. it gives you time to ask yourself why you're even commenting at all.

3. Think about the time and effort you're putting into leaving a comment in the first place. Just think of all the things you could be doing instead. Plus, you might say something you regret and then you're left to think about that all day.

4. It's okay to not have the last word. Say what you need to say and move on. I've seen so many social media fights where the people involved always seem the need to get the last word in. You don't need to.
