Five Things Your Social Media Profile Is Saying About You

Five Things Your Social Media Profile Is Saying About You

Whether Snapchat, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram is your social media of choice, it’s easy to come off conceited, angry, or just plain shallow with your profile. Here’s how to stay in line.

Take time to celebrate others
The biggest keyword in social media is “social”—meaning you should always make an effort to interact, and not just post ramblings or vacation photos.

If the only way you interact with other people is to “like” when they comment on your post or to get into arguments with content you don’t agree with, you need to make more of an effort to congratulate others or offer encouragement.

There are posts that, try as you may, you cannot resist putting out your thoughts. This can however be done in a positive way!

Say what you actually mean
a good way of ensuring you’re sending the right message to your followers, friends, and fans is to be very direct about how you feel, what you think and what matters to you. It’s less likely someone will misinterpret if everything is easy to understand.

Communicate in a way that is direct, clear, and specific, since it is too easy for people to misinterpret, misunderstand, and even feel upset by things on social media. State your feelings to help decrease the chances of people assuming or guessing what you’re feeling, which frequently is incorrect.
