Social Media Etiquette

Using social media is the norm of modern day society. It is an online identity of who we are as a person and some tend to show more online than others for better or for worse. It is very important to be cautious of what you share on social media because it can easily ruin your reputation at work or even your social life in general. There are countless cases of people using offensive language on social media causing a stir amongst friends, family, colleagues, and even strangers who discover it through media outlets and online sharing. Celebrities cause the biggest stirs from what they show on social media because it tends to viral faster; sharing controversial or just morally unacceptable posts.

Below I will share examples of celebrities who have ruined their repetition through social media:

Singer Azealia Banks hit the spotlight in 2011 with her hit song called “212”. Ever since she has had troubles making the top 100 Billboard charts. She mostly makes headlines for social media beef and from releasing offensive views on Twitter, which she is now banned from for sending racial slurs to ex-One Direction artist Zayn Malik. After apoligizing several times for her mistakes, Azealia seems to never learn her leason because she still makes headlines weekly due to her language.

2. Donald Trump
