How should you deal with toxic people online? Here’s how.
Let’s be honest; have you ever met toxic people online? Have you been trolled on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, or TikTok? Chances are, you have! The online space is more polarized than before. We do not have gray spaces. If you don’t agree with someone or someone doesn’t agree with you, they’re right, and you’re wrong.
In this episode, I share three actionable tips that will make dealing with trolls easier. These tips are easy yet functional. When you are trolled, always take time to try to understand that person’s behavior and why it triggers you. Doing so will give you a moment of self-reflection to see what you can improve on.
The first thing to do when trolled is to thank the toxic person. Truth be told, as much as we hate what they did, they have a different perspective on the conversation. Thank them for taking the time to give their point of view. You may also consider engaging them to understand where they are coming from.
The second thing is to ignore them: Depending on how the conversation goes and the magnitude of their toxicity. You can choose to ignore them. Just let them be.
The third thing you can do is block them: I know people can be cruel out here. If you feel like their toxicity is too much on you, always use the block option available on all social media platforms. If you are on a social media group like Facebook or LinkedIn, you can block them from the community, and if you do not have the rights, feel free to reach out to the moderator. Also, you can report them to the social platform.
