The anonymity of social media can cause heated and sometimes cruel personal arguments, while a more thoughtful exchange could have occurred face-to-face. How do we deal with those virtual conversations in a productive way online without creating hurt feelings or even worse consequences? One misworded comment or post on any social media outlet can create long term real-world consequences for those involved.
Combative online conversations can happen because we are surrounded online by those who agree with us, as our online community generally reflects our views. We then erroneously believe that the majority of the population must agree with us, because our view is constantly reinforced in the things we see online from our like-minded virtual community. A divergent opinion popping up can be shocking, and can cause a harsher reaction online than it would face-to-face.
How do we avoid these combative situations and how do we make sure we see opinions other than ones we agree with online? A mind exposed to differing opinions expands - both in the real and virtual world. Join us as we explore these topics and discover some tools to help navigate conflict on social media.
