(this article was taken from my linkedin profile)
What I am about to say in this article are not and will not be pertaining to a particular group of people, nor a certain age group and so on.
Probably, more than 50% of people who are using professional social media platform such as linkedin are are misusing it. They either do not know it’s sole purpose or they just don’t care / bother to know at all.
To some, social media will be social media. That whatever it is, it is bound to socialize with others over the cyber space. Yes, this is undeniably correct. BUT! Needless to say, they all have their specific purpose that they cater to.
How many times have you encountered a personal message asking for your number or to meet up without informing you their purpose? You know what I mean so I wouldn’t elaborate on that. Now, I’m not saying I get that all the time, but every single time I get these kind of message, it does annoy me. Why? I tend to use professional platforms such as this exactly how it should be used. I do not mingle nor exchange messages unless it has a PROFESSIONAL manner, purpose and approach.
As per the reply perspective, you only have two options. One is to ignore unwanted messages or two, well you can just respond in a respective & diplomatic way.
Why practice the same? Simple
-It would show your professionalism-It creates your credibility in which nobody else will benefit from it other than yourself
My name is Cassandra, a Filipino expat living in UAE.
I'm not smart. I'm not talented. Nor am I have the potential to be a writer.
This blog site is merely a reflection of what I see in life. How I see life.
I capture magical moments in some days.
I write what I feel at some bits and pieces of life.
I write not to impress. But I write to definitely express. Nothing more, nothing less.
I write not to show the whole world that I am that smart one who always have something to say. Who has an opinion that always matter.
Frankly, I know I am just me who say what I got to say.
