You need attention on media but very positive one. Nobody likes painting and ugly and hate oriented picture in front of the social media audience. Almost the entire world has access to social media platforms where everyone has freedom to erupt and share their opinions no matter how toxic they are.
You just can’t stop them. We see daily on Facebook, You Tube, Twitter and Instagram that how an issue is made a target of criticism, sarcasm and torture making the confidence of individual involved all drained out. Ultimately, it is important to stay out of the claws of social media..
In this guide, we will give you an outline of major precautions which you must consider before you forget what negative social media attention can do to you.
- Avoid irrelevant talks:It is very straight and simple rule, don’t poke your nose into others’ business. Only comment and post about relevant and not-too-harsh topics. Keep the atmosphere light and easy. You must not consider others silent. If you can use your keypad they can do it too. Don’t give them a reason to bash you. I won’t stop you from going in the path of condemning and raising voice against issues which must not exist. But coming up with random comment only to show your active role on the platform can put you in trouble. Stay away from
religious and political matters as that would rather put you in an endless debate.

- Face the negative feedback: Since social media is all about posting and commenting some unpleasant moments are surely part of it. First, as I mentioned before, don’t poke your nose into others matters. And even if you have and get a bashing for being an intruder then don’t back off. If you leave and run away this makes your position weak. You have certainly no margin about being careless with the audience. Deleting a comment will make you appear a coward. It
is better to stand still and do the rapid fire answering than staying silent and welcoming a negative attention. This might give your competitors a chance to use it against you.
- Post authentic content: According to Roger from Ed Cal Media Agency: “Here is where you get caught most of the times. Post content which you are sure about. Do the research and finalize the content before posting. Your content circulates among thousands of followers. Thus, it is necessary for you to not post ‘assumed’ material but very clear and well searched information. The audience will not spare you if you post or make a comment about something very sensitive and that too in a very wrong manner. First, delicately design and trim the content.
Go through it multiple times. Double (in fact, triple) checking is essential. After you are fully satisfied post it. Remember your post will be seen by numerous people thus, deleting it will not lessen the burden in case something goes wrong.”
- Play smart: It is vital for you to gain attention across media but not negative one. Therefore,you must be familiar with your audience. You can dig for the ratios of followers. You should have
a clear idea that what your audience wants to see. Majority is authority, but not in this case. You have to post something that can win hearts of majority. As far as minority is concerned, you need to take care of them as well. Otherwise you will lose a small but significant chunk of your
You can’t stop social media but definitely, social media can stop you way before than your starting point
