It’s rather easy to be annoying – both online and offline. As they say, “haters gonna hate”, and whether you are truly being annoying or people just don’t get you, there will always be those who think you are an annoying person.
When it comes to social media, though, it is hard to deny that there are common characteristics that highlight an annoying person. Whether your answer to the title is yes or no, you might want to take a look at the following questions and figure out if you are an annoying person on social media.

It doesn’t take an expert to see that Google search no longer has the same reach that it had just a few years ago.

We’ve all faced this temptation at least once. With all the noise there is online, it is only understandable. Take a look at your Facebook feed (although I probably don’t have to say that). What’s the ratio of people complaining/showing off/being passive-aggressive/etc. to people who actually have statuses that matter to you? How about ads and posts that are purely promotional?
Then there’s Twitter. Depending on how many people you follow – and if you use lists – the chances are that you are drowning in your stream.
Your in-house writer completed a blog post and published it to the company web site. Subsequently, what did people say about it on Facebook? How many people shared the post on Twitter? Did it get more attention than the company’s previous YouTube video? These are questions involving today’s small businesses.
Given modern-day technology and platforms, businesses of all industries and sizes can navigate across digital and off-line platforms, integrating marketing channels, resulting in business success. However, not every business owner feels confident using digital channels, and a number of in-house workers are scrambling to understand an expanding set of on and offline marketing tools. Read More

In today’s society, most people don’t think twice about posting all the details of their lives to social media accounts. It’s a way to stay connected with friends and family and a way to establishing ties with new people. Usually, it’s harmless enough.
