With the internet in its current form, everyone has a voice, some use it positively, to impact people, some people use it to sell something, some people use it negatively, to bring others down!
Earlier, in the initial social media days, or even before that, this wasn’t the case!
When a person saw a billboard or a visual/audio show or an ad, the platform was trusted enough to trust the information too.
With social media and the uprise of people on it, there are too many voices out there!
When you seek information on the internet, you need to be self-aware of who you are, what do you seek and listen to the right person.
On a number of occasions, people are in a hurry and conclude their hunt for the information, with the first person they find and base their opinions according to a single person’s point of view too.
If you’re listening to someone, be sure of the experience they have and what their intentions are.
If you’re buying something, ensure of the brand and their approach. (especially if it’s an online service)
The key is to listen to the right people.
