Social Media Positivity Week

I solemnly swear I am up to only good…

A lot of people are saying that we are entering a dark time in our world. At Happy Melly, we believe there’s still hope. And while social media has made that world smaller and more interconnected than ever, social networking has fractured our networks too, so often plagued with negativity. Instead of focusing on FOMO* let’s make YOLO** a priority.

For just one week, why not just be positive? Sign our pledge below as part of your public commitment to a week of social media negativity abstinence and see if it makes other parts of your world positive too!

What do we mean? Of course not posting anything negative, but also:

  • not sharing anyone else’s negativity
  • not liking or reacting at all (even with a sad face) to someone else’s negativity
  • searching for the positive if something negative occurs (and think about sharing that bright side!)
  • no passive aggressiveness or backhanded compliments
  • no ‘sad’ or ‘angry’ reactions or emojis on anyone’s posts
  • no self-deprecating either! try to stop yourself from thinking negative thoughts about yourself in response to what you see online
  • this includes all social networks, public, private and professional

And it’s not just individuals but whole companies are joining our experiment too! Does your whole team want to commit? Contact us at info-at-happymelly-dot-com to get involved and your logo showing your commitment!

Join us in positivity!

Want to learn more about the effect of communication on company culture? Read these:

*FOMO stands for ‘fear of missing out’. The anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening someone else, usually felt by looking at your friend’s super cool vacation pics on Facebook or Instagram.

**YOLO stands for ‘you only live once’, and is the social networking revamp of ‘carpe diem’.
