Mickie Kennedy says in this article that, “You’re responsible for creating an environment where readers are comfortable sharing their thoughts and interacting.” That even includes those pesky negative comments about our writing we just love to hate, but by keeping them, it shows we are willing to view and consider all other’s thoughts and opinions on our work- which is a good thing. So, as the year slowly comes to an end and most of us prepare to graduate, many of us are deleting old accounts, cleaning up pictures on our social sites, and trying to hide any lingering and questionable material out there in social-media-world. Well, as you do this, I suggest you take a look at this article and read for yourself what types of comments you want to keep and delete off your online accounts. In summary of the article, the three types are:
- Personal Attacks– its okay if someone states an opposing view, but you don’t really need the whole world knowing that they called you a “bleepity bleep bleeper” (use your #$@!&? imagination lol).
- Vulgar and Offensive Remarks– even if its just an inside joke or a flirtation remark from that new guy in class- get rid of it! Last thing you need is to be judged based off completely irrelevant information!
- Spam– if you walk into a friends messy house, its usually an instant turn-off. The same applies when you invite people to come read your blog or add you on a social network, and your applications, quizzes and advertisements demand more of their attention that the actual work you put into your site. Clean up after yourself- this ain’t cha Momma’s house!
