How to leave an outstanding social media imprint i.e. comment
To help you make the most of your support, here are four things to do before clicking Submit:
- Read out loud, but in your mind: They say you should weigh your words in before you put them forward. So before hitting that enter button think if your comment is appropriate for the community -- including speakers, and your Sapiens family?
- Take a step back and EDIT: Ask yourself:
- Is this what you have to say?
- Are you saying it clearly?
- Be constructive: There is always more than one way of doing something. So ask yourself, ‘Am I being constructive enough with what I have to say? Can I elaborate further on my feedback?
- Articulation is power: Does my comment encourage a healthy discussion or is it going to put others on the defensive? Am I articulating myself well enough? Because since the dawn of the mankind the one power which has remained uninhibited is, ‘Articulation’ which one should put to use carefully.
When do we take action?
Although we support free speech, we also believe in the limits of it. We encourage healthy constructive interactions and do not support any kind of bullying and derogatory mudslinging. Here we enlist some reasons based on which your comment may get removed:
- Inappropriate usage of language: Inappropriate usage of language in any kind or degree of threat making is not appreciated. Calls to violence are never tolerated.
- Response to an inappropriate remark: Do not indulge. Report instead.
- Spamming: Unnecessary haggling and excessive posting amounts to spamming. Such comments may even get you banned from further commenting on any conversation thread.
- False claims to undermine a speakers authenticity: Don’t indulge in false information, rumors, or hearsay. If you don’t know something to be true, please don’t spread it.
A note to the community: Fake information is not suitable for an ideal community, hence we request you to go through our guidelines again and stick to only the ethical practices that fall within the bounds of our guidelines
