It’s quite sad that we need ways to handle social media negativity. The rise in popularity and prominence of all the different social media platforms we have available to us had lead to a great number of positive things. People can now more easily connect with others who share the same interests, you can keep in touch with friends and family in more effective ways, and the process of breaking news is something that spreads much more rapidly and efficiently nowadays. However, there’s no denying that there are definitely some negative sides to the social media age. From online bullying to judgement from strangers to an overall feeling of detachment from reality, there is a long list of flaws. Here are some smart ways to handle social media negativity.

1. Don’t Feed Trolls

If you get a nasty comment from a total stranger, just ignore it. This is most likely an internet troll who is trying to get people to engage with them for fun. Don’t feed them and give them the satisfaction of starting an online argument. If you have the function, just delete the message from your profile and move on. It’s like fishing for them, so just don’t take the bait!
