Lately this issue has been becoming more common as there are people who write terrible things about others and who gossip about others spreading rumors and spreading out bad messages about someone. It is really not nice to do so. You never know the person you talk bad about will eventually find out about it. What goes around comes around as they say. It is very important to be careful what you write and spread around about others. I believe those people who gossip about people to you, will gossip to others about you. Gossiping about others is not a great trait to develop. It is a form of bullying. I have seen so much of this happen online and on facebook, twitter, and other social networking sites and I am not liking it at all. Whatever happened to being kind and respectful to each other?
Did you know that even after deleting messages and terrible posts never goes away? You may think your terrible message about somebody is gone forever, but your completely wrong. It stays on the internet forever or up to 7 years in the Internet database. Anything posted, anything that you do is documented. Haven’t you ever googled or searched on search engines and come across old websites and other websites and you see a screenshot or cached file on the side? Well, those are the things that stay and it never goes away and if you have written something terrible, it will be documented. So be careful how you use the internet and be careful what you write. The Internet can be a dangerous place and it can be used against you. So just beware of what you write and post.
When it comes to posting pictures or anything, it is very important to first ask people if you can post pictures up of them or something. You wouldn’t like it if a person just posts your pictures without your permission now would you? It is always good to ask. You have the right to refuse your picture being posted even on facebook or whatever social site. Before you post something think twice about it. Is it a good thing? Is it something necessary? Sometimes what you do, can be misinterpreted and misused in a terrible way and people will not like it and may think differently than you will about something. Another thing is to never point fingers on anybody and make others uncomfortable. If you are going to write something, do it in a general statement, and do it in a way where it will not offend people. Proper etiquette is a must on the internet as its shared by billions of people around the world and anybody can come across what you do post.
The internet is a great place to be and there is so much you can learn online and so much you can do, but be mindful and careful how you utilize the internet and how you portray yourself. It is very important.
Have fun and communicate online, but if you have a problem with a person and if you have an issue with them, take it up with them, don’t share and put them on the spot for everyone to read and see. Its not nice. If you have a problem, take it up with them privately. It is that simple.
