Sometimes people go nuts on Twitter (see Rockson Tan vs YPAP Leader) or Facebook (The Facebook Douche Bag by the Oatmeal).
We laugh hearty har-har at them, but it bugs me that we can’t get along with each other even in a virtual world.
But social media is quite like real life. We “meet”, we “talk”, we share stories and content, all things that we do when we’re with real-life friends. Like all things in real life, social media is about how you say things and how you “act” in the community.
- “Please” and “Thank Yous” are always appreciated
- Show patience and kindness to newbies
They might not know what they are doing. Just take it that they’re naive.
- Don’t diss the community that you’re in
Would you diss your host in real life?
- Treat people like you’d want to be treated
Would you want to be told that you’re worthless, stupid or a waste of space? Probably not.
Essentially it boils down to – give respect to others, and you’ll be given respect. Do check out my 6 Don’ts in Social Media post for things that you shouldn’t do in any social media network.
