I have given up using Facebook until June 1st because I have grown tired of the whiny, condescending tone of many people who either choose to kiss each others butt, speak in vague ways, or make comments that stir up controversy.
I call the type of comments I see lately on Facebook FDR – Facebook Displays of Regression.
If you or are your staff do any of the following, you probably are committing FDR’s
– Making comments about how you are mad at “someone”, but not mentioning the person by name, therefore arising suspicion in everyone.
– Making claims that you were wronged by “someone” you have done business with, but not being clear on who exactly of the many people you do business with has done you wrong, therefore arising suspicion in everyone you have done business with.
– Complaining about some government official, business, or other entity in a public forum without any basis or claim, just to participate in the complaint.
– Giving credit where credit isn’t do to pander and panhandle as a sycophant to get the supposed support of someone who you think has good connections
If you want to do serious business on the internet, I suggest you avoid FDR’s entirely, or risk being looked at as someone who is just a perennial malcontent.
