Social media is fast becoming one of the most popular form of communication. The following are sensible and common sense suggestions to make your online presence as trouble free as possible.
1. Ensure that whatever you send makes sense and cannot be misconstrued. Remember, communication involves transmitting meaning.
2. Avoid sending or forwarding messages with racist, sexist or any other offensive content or language.
3. Furthermore, do not post, send or forward anything you may regret in the future. If you do not agree with a comment on social media, ignore it, rather than posting abusive words against the writer. The watchword is ‘think first’ before posting any item or even sending an email.
