Social media has taken an important place in our lives, but did you know that just as there are rules for every aspect of life, there are also rules for using social media.
Zahra Al-Najjar, an expert on social media usage, says that whether it is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or anyone else, there are some rules of their use which, if followed, do not cause problems.
Beware of consumers
First of all, remember that just as you are using social media platforms, so are millions of people around the world using them, including people who come to the Internet with bad intentions. There should be no prey.
They may have specific goals, the most dangerous of which is to spread hatred. So you need to keep in mind that the person on your friend list does not necessarily have to be the same person as their profile. That whole account can be fake, so be careful.
Think before you share personal information
Social media is not real life, there can be a lot of things that don’t look like that. Not all people on social media are your best friends with whom you can share your personal affairs, there are people who can take advantage of them.
Beware of fake accounts
There are a lot of fake accounts on social media, if inappropriate content is being shared from an account then there is an option to report it on the same platform, report it yourself and share it with friends, on this platform ‘S management reviews this account and closes it if it is found to be fake.
Nowadays, if someone has something to say, the full link is copied and sent, which when clicked, you go directly to this website or post, etc., and since some sites have a record of cookies. Your account name goes where it can be used later.
Similarly, some links contain viruses, which as soon as you click on them enter your phone, computer, or laptop which can damage the files while hackers also take advantage of such clicks.
Most people create an account on social media but do not bother to go to the setting, although it is very important to set them in terms of their personality and work.
This includes the option of who can access your profile, who can comment, and to whom the post will go. If you haven’t already, go to Settings today.
Don’t share too much
No need to share and post photos 24 hours a day, just two or four posts a day is enough if it is interesting and informative. If you continue to share things without any special occasion without any reason, your followers may get bored and may even follow them.
Most of the posts are exaggerated which may make people think that you are doing this for a specific purpose, it may change their opinion about you.
The humorous aspect
Whether it’s a post or a comment on a post, adopt a light-hearted style that has a humorous aspect, people enjoy it. However, there should be serious comments on very serious posts such as illness or death.
Take care of the feelings of others
If there is a grammar or any other mistake in someone’s post, it would be better to mention it in a private message instead of making it feel less practical by mentioning it in general comments, so that he will feel that you are not making fun of his lack of knowledge. ۔
Pictures of others
Never post pictures of people or friends without their permission. If you have a friend who has a birthday or is coming and you want to tame him, you can put a picture of cake or something else.
Don’t ask for likes
Of course, you should post on social media but you should not ask them to like or share but leave the matter to your online friends to like if they like it, as well as follow up from other people. Don’t even insist on asking.
