There is
no doubt that social media is a good thing.

Only when
it’s not terrible.

Check out the examples
below to learn more about the pitfalls many renowned men fall into.

Here is the example of
KitchenAid. He thought he logged into a personal account but it was his
business account.ooopps!

KitchenAid made a tasteless joke on the deceased
grandmother of U.S former president Barak Obama. During the presidential
debate, the tweet came:

“Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad!
She died 3 days b4 he became president.”

1. Don’t trust everyone
easily on social media

There are some 1.15
Billion registered users on Facebook, 500 million Twitter, 150 million of
Instagram and 70 million of Pinterest. While the number of users is not an indicator
of who is right and who’s not. But whom to trust and not to trust is not an
easy way. A lot of scammers communicate with their victims for months and try
to gain their trust. Be careful. There is no denying the fact that lost of
people get scammed on social media without their knowing of it. So easy way is
to not share your personal information with anyone you have never met in a

2.Racial slurs on social

Racial differences and
slurs are 100% wrong if that person is in your office or in your friend list on
facebook or twitter account. No doubt social media is a perfect place to share
your opinions and views but only when it does not hurt someone’s emotions and
social association.

3. Post a picture
without permission.

 Off-course there is outlaw photo theft on
social media and no credit goes to anyone for an image.

That’s obviously wrong.

If you want to share any
photo of any organization or any person, get permission first.

Tagging an embarrassing
photo is like “kick-me” stop doing this to avoid embarrassment.

4. The fake social media

A regular user may
create fake accounts and have their chat on their own way but a celebrity or a
company cannot. Chick-fil-A is unknown to it at all. The company didn’t
say against an anti-gay campaign across facebook. It was alleged that the
company set up a fake account. Naturally, the secret account didn’t remain
secret for long.

5.No-thing dies.   

In the age of social
media, everything you share, you can’t get it back. Within a minute your image
or personality be ruined. There is no ‘taking it back” even if you have deleted
it within a minute. Before you decide to post anything, ask yourself, “Do I
want this to be online forever”? If your inner says “no”, don’t hit the post.

6. Be consistent, don’t
over do it

Using Facebook is a good
thing to keep in touch with social happenings but doesn’t mean posting too much
without a balance. A recent Facebook study revealed that posting too much and
frequently would lose connection with your total audience and posting more than
once in a day would become an annoyance.

7.False statements about
a celebrity

You should avoid using
social media as a tool for revenge. You are getting clicks, no doubt but at the
same time, you are losing others trust on you.

Maybe you don’t feel
guilty in your life but may be charged under the law. And I am sure you don’t
want to end up in the wrong place.

8. Keep your political
views limited.

 Maybe you don’t like Trump or Clinton. These
are the topics that charm your dinner gossips with friends and family. But such
gossips on social media posts rarely stimulate conversation among adults. Save
your energy for games and your politics for a better purpose. Take an example
of Tim Thomas of Boston. He used Facebook as a political signboard to share his
views on the White House, much of his team’s dismay.

9. Don’t share your

 Surely you don’t want your bank account to be hacked without your knowing it. And after all your knowledge, it was hacked from your Facebook post. Never use your credit card number, or you talk about your financing. No one knows who will use it.

Over 74% adults using
social media. Its an effective tool to reach and get interaction with people.
Like Facebook was launched in 2004 and after that it grew like mushrooms. Same
is the case with Twitter, watsapp, and linkedin. Some use it for business. So
never do these silly mistakes on social media.
