Why Can’t We All Just Get Along

I don’t understand why people attack each other in social media. On twitter, I have seen people lash out at others because of how a post was formatted or because of an experience at a business. If you have an online relationship with someone/business, and you have an issue, send a direct message rather than flaming them in the public arena. You can even take this a step further, if you don’t have anything nice to say – don’t say anything at all.

In response to the people who post negative posts, for the most part I say to ignore them. Move on and focus on the positive posts. Online, as well as in the off line community, there are people who have nothing positive to say about anything. They are not happy unless they are telling other how bad they are. One of the hardest lessons I have learned is to ignore the knuckle-heads and surround myself with positive people.

When you feel like posting a negative post. Do as the commercial suggests, “Give it a ponder”. If you can set the post in a preview state, do so until you can take some time away from it.
