Ever get that WTF face when checking out Facebook or Google Plus like in today’s cartoon? I do. It is annoying as hell on Facebook because those are my “friends” I am commenting on their posts so it isn’t like I can dump them without hurt feelings. Though usually on FB it is isolated and not consistent among the same friend.
But it seems to be worse on Google Plus as you don’t have to be friends with someone to follow their posts (as they don’t necessarily have to follow you back). There are plenty of people that I follow on Google Plus who don’t follow me back but I have two rules that I look for to continue following them.
1. Be present. Broadcasters who post but never respond to comments on their post are not worth my time. And I don’t think you have to respond to every comment, but a chosen few shows that you actually read the comment. And speaking of reading the comments….
2. I try to always plus every comment on my posts as a way to say thank you for leaving the comment and acknowledge you took the time to write. That is unless it is a douche/troll comment and then I ignore it. That being said there seem to be some people who will post and plus every comment but a few. To me that says you only want to engage with certain people. Just recently uncircled someone who has on three occasions ignored my relevant non douchey comment while plussing every other comment consistently. I get the hint!!
What other moments on the web cause you to have the WTF face??
