More Reasons to Stop Talking About Yourself on Social Media

Last week, I shared a social media pet peeve with you: Talking about yourself too much on social media. It’s easy to want to share when great things happen to you, but if you want to keep your followers interested in what you have to say, you have to mix that up with a generous dose of talking about others.

Here’s another installment of that same message.

Remember, tooting your own should be limited to (roughly) 10-20% of your posts.

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I have a young acquaintance getting started in her career in Christian music. She asked many people to friend her on Facebook. Most of us have “unfriended” her. All she talks about is herself. Where she can be seen, heard, her latest accomplishment… it’s “all about her”. And in the Christian world that’s REALLY not as it should be. I hope she reads your blogs!
