The most overused words on social media

Reading through my twitter feed, I suddenly became aware of the repetitious status updates. I am ashamed to admit I’m guilty of it myself! What are these words….?

They are ‘lovely’and ‘great’ along the lines of:

“Had a lovely afternoon doing XYZ”

“Thanks for a lovely XYZ”

“What a great start to the day”

“Had a great meeting with … “

    While there is no substitute for a professional photographer, sometimes you just need to get a shot of an event, activity or completed project, perhaps for social media or your newsletter.
