The epic short and sweet guide to not pissing anyone off on social media

Almost the whole world is online. You wake up, you open your web browser and start logging on to your various social media, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, whatever.

And when you walk the planes of life online, there are haters. Haters are just there to make others’ lives miserable and put people down for no apparent reason.

It’s annoying, but that’s a sad fact in life. So please do not become one of them at all cost. You most likely have a less outreach in person (unless you love to shout) so observing proper etiquette online is more important.

Here’s a quick but epic guide.

1. Don’t be judgmental.

2. Don’t be racist.

3. Be tactful with these easy-to-use terms: “Just my 2 cents”, “This is just my opinion”, “I could be wrong, but…”, “Sorry”.

4. Don’t argue back ever. Walk away. 

5. Don’t take ANYTHING online personally.

6. Don’t address a whole race/nation/group when you are feeling upset or pissed off. 

7. Realize you can’t please everyone in life. If one idiot disagrees with you, it doesn’t mean your world is in shambles. So again, don’t argue back.

8. Troll only if it’s really funny and that the majority of people will like it.

9. If you are not sure if it’s meant to be a joke, hold back on the LOLs.

10. Don’t tweet about who pissed you off.

11. Don’t tweet thinking that you are being subtle. When you have to think you are subtle, it means it’s obvious.

12. Take a hint from the length of your dislike bar.

13. Mind your own business and just focus on your own work online!

    I should’ve read this post when you first published it. I was recently involved in a bit of an online spat and I don’t always stop to control my emotions before hitting the ‘submit’ button. That being said, I don’t think you necessarily always have to be a saint in social media. Some people use people’s emotions to further their own interests via controversy. Just remember that how you publicly act online may later come back to bite you. It all adds to people’s opinions of you.

      What happened man?

      Interesting point on people using people’s emotions to further their own interests via controversy.

      I think there are many factors towards bad behavior in social media. But as it seems, thanks to the power of the internet, people are all too ready to dish out hate online. Make it face to face and I am pretty sure it would be an entirely different story.
