How to deal with a post-election social media meltdown
People who have been affected by social media disasters may find it difficult to keep their personal and professional lives separate.
In the wake of the election, that means avoiding social media altogether, or, at least, avoiding sharing the content that might trigger a post, according to experts.
The most popular post-electoral posts, as defined by social network sites, have been posted over the past several days.
The posts include personal information, and the posts can be highly personal.
Social media platforms are starting to offer tips and guidance on how to keep a calm and productive online life, as they do for real life.
The advice may include staying on top of what your social media is doing and managing what you do not share, according a post by the Pew Research Center.
The post recommends using an “unrestricted” mode that is not blocked, to prevent others from sharing.
If you do choose to share content that is too personal, you should consider blocking all but the most targeted posts, said Dr. Michael L. Cohen, the director of the Pew Center.
