The most overused words on social media

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 … “

My challenge to you is to use them every time you are about to type one of those boring words. Have I missed any? Let me know!

  • A new way to manage social media posts A new way to manage social media posts

    I am currently trialling a new social media tool that enables you to schedule posts across the various different platforms. There are of course several tools such as Hootsuite which already do that, but what I like about this one is it’s attractive and user-friendly visual appeal. You can also schedule posts ready for approval […]
