Man social media is full of distractions...

And seeing as how I have work to do online and on social media sometimes it is super hard not to get distracted...

Case in point...

So I wanted to work on my audience building, so I decided to reach out and hit up the friends I have made in the Internet Marketing community...

So I decided, with not much thought or consideration to be honest, to do just do a wave 👋 campaign via Messenger...

This was going to be super simple and quick, a friendly little :wave: 👋 ...

Just a hey how is it going, what’s up, checking in, hit me back when you have a moment lets chat;

All in one simple little emoji, or so I thought...

What followed next I did not expect, but very interesting to say the least.

It seems this stirred a bit of emotion in some, and not so much just the :wave: but what the :wave: means to them, or what follows the :wave:

A cold call, or a pitch from someone that is only looking to get something for nothing.

A rude intrusive invasion of their personal online space that is their messenger inbox...

WOW!

Check it out, I have a convenient little hashtag for you to see and chime in on a few of the original posts:

#WaveOrNotToWave

Or just comment here, because I am not done with this yet...

It super interesting on so many levels, not just for marketing which is my main focus...

But on the use of social media and an impact on people and the way we interact and interpret text and images on social media...

What and how people react to the 👋 emoji in their messenger inbox, to cold messaging, chatbots? ... etc ...

Is there etiquette that needs to be followed?

Or is it social media and it should be expected, as a way to connect?

Lots of questions and answers that have yet to be discovered…

Again, #WaveOrNotToWave, you tell me please let me know what you think about this :wave: emoji and how it should be used...

  • Yeah Garry, I think that a wave followed by a personal message or at least a “hey (your name), what are you up to…” is much better than JUST a wave.

    Thing is that there’s a lot of spammers out there.

    Now if it’s a friend that does it, of course…that’s not as big of a deal.

    However, if it’s someone on my friends’ list I don’t know I’d probably be skeptical at first personally.

    Just my 2 cents.

      Hey Phil, thanks for the comment…

      Yeah I think that is the general feel for the wave, if you know the person you might be annoyed a bit but it is “okay”…

      But that poor little :wave: emoji still catches a bad rap!

    Hey there Garry,

    Such a great headline you’ve got here. At first, I thought what this has to do with internet marketing.

    You are not the only one that is against that feature from Facebook, it’s really annoying.

    Cheers,

    Melos
