3 Big Social Media Turn-Offs

A recent survey by SocialToaster in Baltimore reveals how you can alienate connections on your social networks.

To prevent being un-friended, avoid one of these slip ups:

  • Repetitive: 51.2 percent of respondents say that repetition and recounting the same thing over and over will cause them to unfollow someone.
  • TMI: 39 percent say that too much information — getting overly personal and oversharing — is grounds for unfollowing someone.
  • Poor grammar: 34.1 percent of respondents said that poor grammar will prompt them to stop following someone.
