What are your "Social Media" Pet Peeves?
What are your "Social Media" Pet Peeves? It's a simple question with numerous remarks. I recently asked this question on Twitter to find the overall un-scientific sentiment of the user(s) I follow. I want to learn to use Twitter in a proper etiquette because it's always changing as more people utilize these tools. I for one make mistakes frequently on "Social Media" so learning to improve is always a good thing. Twitter can be used anyway you want. If you want to tweet about your cat all day, that is fine. If you want to engage in dialogue about being a social media guru that's fine too. The jest of this post is that everyone uses "social media" differently. Some use it for expression, some use it for attention or even business purposes. We are all different. Social Media is new to most people and continues to evolve so have restraint and understanding when using these tools.
Enjoy the Social tools and find a balance that fits you. Customize and mold the use of your social channels to fit you and your life. It's also important to listen to the conversations to better understand what makes people act the way they do. You start to create a mental profile of a person you follow and this is why listening is important. Taking that online persona and social cues and extending a meeting in real life completes the cycle of being social which is probably the most important value to "Social Media" for me. On that note, here is a compilation of "Social Media" Pet Peeves from my Twitter Stream that I thought you might like or help you understand the nuances of "Social Media". These tweets are a mix of funny and serious observations. Enjoy and continue to add value to your Twitter streams. To find more Pet Peeves just follow #Petpeeves hashtag.
@The_Jmoney by far the biggest #PetPeeve is disregarding RSVPs to FB Events. It takes 2 seconds to click maybe at worst.
@beachrockinc People who are overly emo that whine all the time and share way too much information #PetPeeves
@swaych the term "tweeple"
@stilez honestly? Ppl who 'pitch' or 'network' rather than "connect". Sick of the same SM tips RT'd 1000x & no valuable dialogue.
@beachrockinc Also when people overuse the RT button everytime they get mentioned or just b/c they are trying to get more followers
@E_freeds My biggest #PetPeeve is when I put my phone back in my pocket then people respond to my tweets #PetPeeve
