I recently changed my banner image on Facebook to say something that is universally true of almost everyone I know: I need a vacation. At the time, I thought it was funny, but honest. But before I knew it, the concerned emails and messages started to pour in.
These two tips from some very successful bloggers are a good start:
"Comments follow you. Because social media feels like a place where people can just be themselves and say things off the cuff, people often say things they wouldn't typically say in public." "Consider the tone. Humble-bragging, outright bragging, constant complaining and endless rhetorical questions never go over well with readers."
How far is too far to you? Have you ever had an instance where something was horribly misunderstood when intentions were innocent?
