Social media has become an integral part of society. It alerts us of any emergency situations, breaking news and even the hottest celebrity gossip. It’s a great platform to get things out into the world fast. With that being said, it’s so important to be mindful of what and how you put information out on social media.
- Be mindful. If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t type it
Common sense, people! This one is a no brainer! Do not attack or post negative things. This can cause major backlash and let’s be real, no one needs that kind of negativity in their lives. This is why it’s important to think before posting . If a particular post or comment upsets you, take time to cool down, collect your thoughts, and to carefully craft a respectful response. Yes, a kind one.
- Be authentic
BE YOURSELF. Don’t try to fabricate an elaborate lifestyle or story. It’s so easy to lose touch when dealing with the world of social media. Your followers, readers or users will appreciate your authentic self. This will also build up your online reputation and your trust worthiness.
- Be safe.
Don’t post your location or personal details. It’s asking for trouble. I’ve got Kim Kardashian in mind while typing out this advice! DON’T post your current location if it can put you in jeopardy! Kardashian was robbed at gun point, because her robbers knew where she was, based on her social media posts. Posting that you are away on vacation is asking to be robbed! Especially if you have hundreds of ‘friends’ online.
