Social Media is a bag of tricks, between learning new recipes on Tiktok, finding the perfect Friday night outfit on Instagram or catching up on your favourite Youtuber's channel, there's always something for everyone.
It's also a great way to make new connections and broaden your personal/professional network.
Over 4 billion people use social media across the world.
With this figure increasing everyday, It's extremely important for us all to feel happy and comfortable whilst using social media.
Let's look out for each other by doing the following:
Create your own happy place - Post about things that make you happy, social media is a place to unwind, have fun and laugh until your tummy hurts.
Happiness is contagious and If we all spread enough of it at the same time, It'll create an ongoing chain reaction.
Call out negative/hateful behaviour - Let's maintain the 'happy place.'
Call out any negative/hateful behaviour, if you feel uncomfortable doing so, report the issue so that it can be looked into.
Be respectful of others online - Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, however, it's important to put yourself in the other person's shoes and consider how that opinion could make you feel.
Dealing With Online Trolls
When dealing with a social media troll, ensure that you don't feed into the trolling, block and report the account and any other accounts made with that email.
Taking Breaks Is Healthy
Enjoy your social time and don't forget that it's okay to take social media breaks when needed.
