How To Destroy Your Influence Through Social Media

Social media is a great tool, one that I love dearly. Who doesn’t, right?

It’s great to be able to catch up with old high school friends on Facebook. It’s great to see the constant flow of information on Twitter. It’s even great to see all of the amazing pictures people share on Pinterest.

While there’s a good side to social media, there’s also a dark side many people get caught up in.

The Dark Side Of Social Media

By using social media in the wrong way, you can begin to destroy your influence. Amazingly, many people forget that social media is a very public form of communication.

Your employers can see what you post on social media. Your employees can see what you post on social media. Your friends and family can see what you post on social media.

Why Michael Hyatt Was Wrong (And Right) In Disabling Blog Comments

A major influence in my becoming a blogger was Michael Hyatt. His blog on leadership mentored me as I grew in my role as a leader.

Eventually, I took on the role as one of his community leaders. As such, I helped moderate and respond to comments.

That’s why it was such a shock to see his blog post announcing he was disabling comments on his blog.


One of the things I LOVED about Michael’s blog was the fact we had direct access to him. Not only were we able to read his thoughts, we were able to discuss what he shared directly with him.

He’d take the time to read through the blog comments, eventually turning part of this over to his community leaders, and respond to those who commented. It was mind-blowing.
