Social media is still relatively new, so of course we all make mistakes, but just for Halloween fun I’ve pulled together some of the worst, and amazingly common, horrible behaviours that will have you wanting to hide under your duvet!
The number one horror must be that pesky Twitter auto DM that people set up for new followers rather than just taking a minute to say hello and talk to them. Worst still are the ones that tell you to go and like their Facebook page! And even worse than that…. you can’t DM them back with a stroppy message – because they DM’d you, but never followed you back!!
Even more horrifying than having no photo at all on a LinkedIn profile is …..Using a Selfie as a LinkedIn profile picture. Aaaarrrrggghhh.
Not replying to people’s questions, complaints and comments. Blood curdling I know, but yes, it still happens – A LOT.
Those Facebook people that post on your page “I’ve Liked your page so Like mine back”. Bullying people is exactly how social media works – NOT.
Endorsing people on LinkedIn that you have never, ever spoken to in your whole darn life!
I could go on, but I’d hate to be responsible for your nightmares tonight.
Luckily there are ways to protect ourselves if all this horror gets too much, with the hide/ block/ unfollow/ unlike options on all the platforms. So beware.
