Well, here’s a term to consider when posting to social media. The humble brag. Everyone has at least one social media friend who posts fabulous events or gorgeous photos crouched in humility.
Have you see the posed, professional photo of a friend’s kids in matching white oxford shirts (remember TV’s Modern Family portrait episode?). The photo may show up online with the comment “Feeling bless…” or “It took a lot of work…” What are they really saying? Probably something like “Look at my great kids.” So why not just say that?!
Social media provides little space and time to present a message, so be succinct. Avoid the humble brag. Be real. Own your bragging rights when it’s real and you’ll be perceived as more authentic in any social media format.
