The Ultimate Messaging Do’s And Don’ts

Is my message too long? When can I follow up? Is it offensive if I leave this never ending group chat?

In a quest to answer some of these questions, Facebook spoke to over 3,500 people across the UK, US and Australia to find out their ultimate do’s and don’ts when it comes to messaging. 

‘Block And Report’ Social Media Trolls, Say Celebrities

A group of celebrities, politicians and campaigners have made a pledge this week not to publicise online abuse, but instead to mute, block and report social media trolls. This follows the release of the #DontFeedTheTrolls report, published yesterday by new charity, Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH).

The report suggests that hate speech including homophobia, sexism, racial and religious discrimination and xenophobia is being inadvertently spread when insults, put downs or threats are quoted or shared on social media. It recommends that people don’t engage, pointing out that getting a reaction is exactly what trolls want.
