I get it, there are a lot of new people that have moved to Bozeman, and social media can be a good resource for information. Here's the thing. A lot of the questions that people ask on social media can be answered if people simply took the time to look up the information.

Fairy Lake is often a topic of conversation on social media. People are always asking about road conditions and whether or not the road to Fairy Lake is still closed due to a recent logging project. If you did a simple Google search, you would know that the road reopened on July 30.

Whatever happened to simply jumping in your car, and going for a drive to find out how road conditions are for yourself? After all, we do live in Montana, a state that is ripe with places to explore.

Much of the information regarding recreational opportunities in the Bozeman area can be found on the Custer Gallatin National Forest website.

To clarify, I'm not talking about all social media users in Bozeman asking dumb questions, but SOME of them definitely do.

I probably shouldn't let it get to me, but the number of dumb questions that people ask on Facebook and other social media sites really gets under my skin.

I feel like a lot of people have become lazy and too reliant on social media, and it kind of makes me sad. I feel like many have lost their sense of adventure and willingness to find answers to questions on their own.

People often ask the same questions over and over again, and quite frankly, it's pretty annoying. Questions about Fairy Lake have become so frequent that Facebook users have turned it into a drinking game.

I try to keep my thoughts to myself, but I know I'm not the only person that thinks people ask a lot of dumb questions on social media. If this offends you, then you might be a part of the problem.
