Can I suggest before posting we remember two things. The first comes from some years back when a large amount of renowned artists recorded "We are the World". Bob Geldof hung a sign on the door of the recording studio which said "Leave Your Ego At The Door".
The second handy social media 'rule' could be to apply the Rotary 4 Way Test.
Of the things we think, say or do
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
I would like to add a fifth one actually:
5. Does it EFFECTIVELY DEAL with the CURRENT REALTY?
Now I know we can't all do this all the time however it may be a good checklist to consider before getting embroiled in an energy sucking on line argument and mutual flaming session.
