Many people are very nice and make the social networking experience enjoyable. However, the same may not be said of all Internet users. As a professional, there are at least seven annoying types that you may want to learn to deal with or simply avoid…
“OMG!!!” “I LVE DORITOS!” “CALL RIGHT NOW!!!! LISTEN TO THE DOPE INDEPENDENT ARTISST! WE GOIN HARD!!!!” “WHAT????” Yes, the world is very noisy. We need more “noise.” We need people to scream their updates on Twitter or Facebook. Otherwise we will not notice them. In fact, ALL CAPS make you look angry and obnoxious. And uneducated if you do not pay attention to your typos.
Every time someone enjoys an ounce of success, haters pop out of nowhere. They always try to put us down; they always find an excuse to criticize everything we do; and, most importantly, they are able to predict the exact time when we will fail. What they do not realize is that they actually help us excel!
Users are usually very easy to spot with their smooth-tongued poetry. You become a “brother” or a “sister” within seconds of a first-time conversation. And if you do not pay attention, they will quickly talk you into helping them with whatever problem they have — freebie anyone? However, when bartering time has come, they suddenly forget their promises and disappear.
Spammers keep sending unrequested messages to people. No matter what language you use and how many times you explain that they should stop, they always “miss that part” of your message. Until you finally decide to click ‘block’ or ‘report’.
Twitter is rife with robots these days. The only human part about them is the women with deep cleavages in the profile pictures. Following them back would be a dire mistake, as your account will be flooded with hundreds of similar followers within hours…
Some people know everything — even better than the rest of the world. They often make general (and dangerous) statements about things of which they are not cognizant at all. And forget about your 10 or 20 years of experience in your field. They will teach you how do your job correctly while claiming that, “You will thank me later for the tips! ;-)”
The ill-mannered have issues with words and phrases as simple as “hi,” “nice to meet you” or “thank you.” They curse a lot, barely interact with others — unless they need help — or get publicly feisty if you do not agree with them.
