As an avid social media user, for both work and play, I’ll be the first to admit that I have developed social media management pet peeves over time. My pet peeves range from typos in Facebook posts, to broken hashtags on Twitter, to the ever popular using social platforms as a diary.
From the days of Xanga and MySpace to the current front runners, Facebook and Twitter, over sharing has been a constant problem in my opinion. Facebook users, for some unknown reason, commonly feel inclined to let their Facebook friends know when they’re working out, running errands, tired, hungry and so on.
Maybe my soapbox has developed because I work day in and day out on social media management for a digital social media agency, or maybe it is a natural reaction to the non sense that clutters my personal newsfeed and timeline 24/7.
With all of this being said, it brings me to my main, overarching message for you all: please think before you share.
Whether you’re sharing content from your brand’s page or you’re sharing information on your personal profile- think. From the company you work for, to the brand you are the voice of, to you as a person, the things you say and do in the social world will have an effect on something or someone.
