AVOIDING SOCIAL MEDIA CONFLICTS IS A SKILL: THIS IS HOW TO LEARN

 

 

Fighting on the pages of social media can be very embarrassing as you get to wash your dirty linen in public. This is how to avoid such embarrassing situations:

  1. Use the block button: This is an effective way of avoiding conflict before it gets started. When you notice that someone is about to drag you in the mud of social media, be the bigger person by using the block button.

  2. Think about the situation before responding: If you really want to respond to an offensive post, make sure you think about your answers and the boomerang effect it will have on social media.

  3. Take it offline: Who says you have to drag someone online especially if you have a personal relationship with the person? Take it offline, give the person a call or schedule a meeting so that you can avoid a lot of embarrassment.

  4. Apologize sincerely if you are in the wrong. “Sorry” solves a lot of things, it is indeed a magic word.

  5. Avoid controversial issues such as religion: Some topics are better left unsaid especially in a world where high regard is placed on opinions of other people.
