🤳🏼 Social Media

Some tips on spreading the word on social media:

  • Take a moment to update your digital security
  • Don't post unverified information.
  • Post trigger warnings before revealing images of blood and violence.
  • Think about your audience: Do your friends really want to read seven heavily-captioned posts, or do they prefer a single post summary?
  • Engage carefully with friends & family: Sometimes it's best to agree to disagree and move on for now.
  • Engage carefully (or not at all) with the trolls: Do you really need to win that argument on the internet with someone you don't know?
