So I went into the Snarky Forest, today, and did not come out unscathed. I didn’t think I was being overly rude – but was called out. I also lost 6-8 followers at the same time – not sure if they coincided. I did DM the individual and apologize. I have a couple twitter friends that snark-out all the time and never get any bad responses. Well, none they care about.
I’m always completely professional on LinkeIn. I play a little on Facebook. I’m generally more professional, with a side of humor, on Twitter. I have always felt that a little sarcasm was fun. Today – someone felt hurt by my remarks. I have re-seen the light and will not be rude/sarcastic/other-than-nice on the Social front again.
What about you? Do you care what others think of you online differently than you do in person? Do you have a persona that carries over from real life to the virtual one?
