What's up guys! This has been my busiest week for the month and even if I'm dead tired, I'm thankful for all the opportunities. I hope this week has been amazing for you.
I got a question from Marina today and she asked a very relevant question; I'm sure you've noticed that social media's been really toxic lately because of these trolls, organic and paid, and here are some of my tips on how to deal with them.
How do you deal with online trolls without looking like a troll yourself?
Thanks for this! I assume you've experienced some trolling lately, hence the question. Sorry about this, some people just have no better stuff to do!
As someone who's experienced and still experience trolling, here are some ways I deal with them trolls.
1. SAY YOUR PIECE AND WALK AWAY
A lot of people would say to just don't mind the trolls, but they can get on your nerves and pose a threat to an ideal, healthy environment so I say sometimes, you just need to put them in their place. Say your piece - say it loud and proud, don't leave any stones unturned, and walk away. If trolls promote unhealthy discussion, your goal is to bring it back to a healthy level.
2. DON'T STOOP TO THEIR LEVEL
To shut down trolls, converse with them in a civil manner. Trolling will just feed the negativity and trust me, they won't stop. The goal is to make them stop so talk to them professionally and walk away!
Some trolls just won't stop. Times like this, you have to press the report button.
Trolls can get really nasty, vulgar, and hateful. They have no place in a healthy environment so delete them - don't forget to take a screenshot!
That's all and have a wonderful Friday!
How about you guys? How do you deal with online trolls and trolling?
