Sharing on social media

When you see a photo or a quote or a post that really speaks to you so much that you feel the need to share it.

Do you research its origins, do you know the context of its originality(what was its original purpose?)

Or my friend do you just hit share without thinking about anything at all?

I am going to tell you that I too have been very guilty of this, it is too easy to hit share

But we really should be careful in what we are sharing… do our belief system, our morals align with the original poster?

I don’t know but more instances than I can count… I have a friend that shares a post only to find out after the fact the post contained foul language or information they don’t agree with.

It takes seconds to check it out

Click on the posters name to go to their wall

Here you will find information like name, age, employment information, sometimes religious affiliation and there demographics.

Scroll down their feed and see the post in which you wish to share, read it in its original context… is it something you really still want to share?

You may even want to read the comments which may tell you the post is untrue the post is made up just to get people all ralled up!!!

With a few seconds to a few minutes… yes a little longer than it takes to click share

It may educate you just enough to not share or perhaps share more.

Don’t just click share and move on.
