10 HABITS THAT MAKE EVERYONE HATE YOU ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
1. Always selling.
One of the worst sins is posting only when you have something to promote. It’s cheesy and it’s spammy. Social media is a conversation. No one wants to have a conversation Read more ... with a door-to-door salesman.
2. Sending automated messages to new followers.
You may think sending a direct message to a new Twitter follower is a great idea, but experts advise to tread lightly. Thanking new connections and welcoming them into your community is the right sentiment and can lead to the beginning of terrific relationships. But auto direct messages on Twitter are generic, and lack any personal information.
Even if the only connections you have are your 10 closest friends, status updates and tweets are less private than you think. If you’ve forgotten who all your friends are, then definitely save the details of last night’s hookup for a carefully chosen few.
4. Not thanking people.
If someone answers a question, or shares your content with an enlightening comment, then acknowledge them. Ignoring them is much like disregarding someone who holds a door for you. It’s bad karma.
5. Reposting too much.
Sending the same link 10 times in two hours may marginally increase the chance people click on your post. But if people stop following you because of your digital clutter, then you don’t come out ahead.
6. Sharing chain letters and urban legends.
Anything that puts unwanted social pressure on people to take action is a bad idea. Likewise, before you share something shocking, do a quick Google search to find out if it’s on Snopes, the urban legends website.
Think of posts such as: "I guess I know now who my real friends are." Vaguebooking is designed to get the comments and usually something that’s just drama between friends.
8. Hijacking the bandwagon.
If you’re interested in contributing to a trending hashtag on Twitter, by all means read and post along. But sometimes people just look at the list and think: "It’s trending! I should use it." But don’t just hop on.
9. Lacking decorum.
If you feel the need to insult a whole class of people, swear like a sailor, or post a political screed, ask yourself if you’d do it in front of 100 assembled coworkers, or in front of all your relatives at the Thanksgiving table. If you would, fine. But you probably wouldn’t.
10. Bad English.
Posting. Periods. After. Every. Word. Or going over the top with ALL CAPS!!!!! On social media—as well as in more traditional communications channels—your choice of language can emphasize a point. You don’t need extra help with punctuation.
