Alli, Your Friendly Social Media InterventionistAlli Worthington
It’s true, the Internet is full of bad manners. Internet abuse, be it purposeful, spamming, or unintentional obnoxiousness, is rampant. There is no official guidebook, of course, and just like life, everyone uses it a different way.
But come on, we are lying if we say “To each his own. I don’t mind.”
Certain behavior gets under our skin. It makes us twitchy. It makes us go send private messages that ‘so and so is at it again’. WHAT? I KNOW YOU DO IT!
How do I know? Because y’all tell me. When I ask on Twitter for examples I get 90% of my replies via DM.Even when I tease the DMer’s, they still do it…
So it’s official; I’m bringing Social Media Interventions to MomCrunch. I’ll be discussing bad behavior, outing new and ingenious (or just annoying) ways to abuse the Internet, and sharing your feedback.
Get ready for some cheese. I made a trailer…
I always wanted to be a secret agent. I just never knew it would involve the Internet. Now, back to Internet Abuse feedback.
Here are some of my favorite replies-
And this is just the beginning. Why is this important to know? Because you don’t want to be THAT GIRL. You know that girl, the one that annoys everyone when she should be building her business or developing great content? Yeah, her. Knowledge is power, Ladies.
So join the cause to stop Internet Abuse with me.
Keep sending the replies and direct messages on Twitter, notes on Facebook and comments here. I can’t be everywhere, I need lookouts. Remember, only you can stop Internet Abuse.
