Before You Hit Send

“It’s hard to take someone seriously when they leave you a note saying, ‘Your ugly.’ My ugly what? The idiot didn’t even know the difference between your and you’re.” ― Cara Lynn Shultz, Spellcaster

Social media has enhanced communication in some ways and diluted it in others. If I were a superhero, I’d wear a cape made of dictionary pages and run around with a magic red pen correcting the Facebook posts and Tweets of those too quick to hit the enter/send buttons.

Even if your friends don’t judge you by the way you communicate, customers, clients and superiors DO. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be careful.

If you notice an error after you hit send, give it a beat and then decide if it’s worth following up. Sometimes the answer is yes.
