2017 1st Quarter Blogathon, All Things Drag, The "Hidden" Rules

Etiquette On Social Media

Everyone these days is on some format of social media. Whether it be Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, or a combination of them all, it is easy to let some etiquette slip every now and then.

If you post a risky status on a personal page, it may not seem to do any harm, however, when the risky status is posted on a characters page, it will seem like the end of the world depending on the format.

When you are on social media, there is a certain way that you want to come off as. Below I have listed the top 2 rules of etiquette when it comes to controlling your social media accounts that are related to your drag persona.

Rule 1: Mind Your Tongue (or in this case, your fingertips)

A few weeks ago, I posted a blog post title Watch Your Actions. This rule, brings back that post, and narrows it down to this specific post.

When you are on social media, the world is literally watching you. They are watching what you post, to what you like or comment on.

Think of it this way. When put into the rule of karma, what you post, will one day come back into your life. If you post something negative, make sure you are ready to get negative in return.


Rule 2: Regret is Real

This rule will coincide with the first rule that I posted. Following along the lines of karma, regretting what you post will sometimes happen.

If you post something negative, chances are, you will regret it in the future. Something negative will always host a negative feeling about you in the future. Basically, are you really willing to post that status that can potentially end your career before it starts?
