What do you feel about the popular authors who put their entire feelings on social medias, like Instagram? I don’t talk about EVERY popular authors don’t get me wrong.
Sometimes I do understand that readers (Not from Episode Community) can be rude to them, but is it really a good thing to bash and hate the readers on Instagram and throw your feelings in public? Is it really professional to make stories (On Instagram) and act like some teenagers who’s feelings is hurt?
I feel like these popular authors are kind of unprofessional. Some of them do Episode as a living job and should treat their reader like a customer. You know when you have a business even if the customer is dumb, he’s always right at the end of the day. This sentence is so wrong but if you work in the customer service area , you will understand that you have no choice to respect the customer if you want to make money in your business.
Some of them are even a parent , a mom and this is so immature from them…
Welcome to the life on internet when you expose your work/life in a large public…
Just want to know your opinion No hate !
Ok yall, I just want to make it clear, because I didn’t know that I would have so many responses for this topic and I feel like I wasn’t clear enough and I hurt some of you. I wasn’t trying to be rude of something, please don’t feel like I attact you, it’s just my personal opinion as a futur entrepreneur. I feel like some of you see me as a monster or someone who’s not human. I do know what hate is and what it is to deal with that. Sorry, I admit that I did not express myself very well. (Sorry english isn’t my first language also).
Being professional doesn’t mean that you can’t have feelings or you have to shut your mouth. Im not saying that authors should always smile and forgive everyone, I just personally think that there is a way to handle criticism professionally. And I am not talking about the situations where you get death wishes or something very bad like that, but I am talking about the little situations where you get criticism. Like many said, there is a difference between hate and criticism and If you can’t take criticism, then Episode is not for you. When I’m following authors on IG, it’s because I want to have update of their story. I don’t want to see any negative or toxic behavior, seriously. By doing these Ig stories, you are just feeding the drama and this is what the teenager trolls want.
I used the term popular, because some of these author do Episode as a living job and I am talking about them. Episode is a life job for them, they have to be professional. This is the reality of the business world, I am sorry but this is the adult money business market in 2019. I just think that when you can’t take criticism and you are too emotional, it’s kind of unprofessional. This is why I talked about the customer is always right thing, because I considered that readers are like the customer of popular author. (It wasn’t a good example, I shouldn’t have use this term tho).
But like, at the moment, a lot of you guys are hating Episode, because of their new guideline, the crossover rule thing and yall talking about them like they are coward of something. But they are still being professional and they take criticisms. They do not hate on us and make story on IG, and this is what I think a business should do, this is called Public relations. I am sorry, but dealing with criticism is a deal to take when you are working for a large audience. Being sassy and a drama queen for little things is just unprofessional.
I don’t say that popular author owe their readers something and they should bow to them, but I’m saying that if 1 person have to move on and let the person win the argument, it’s definitely the author. It’s pointless taking a screen shot and spilling your tea on your IG story for little things. (Again, I am not talking about the bad situations where you get very disrespectful comments, but the situations where it’s little things).
But yeah like the title said, this is my unpopular opinion so please don’t take it too serioulsy, because I don’t want to make any drama (I dont want to see drama in IG stories and here too ) .
At the end of the day we all have different opinions and this is why our world is a messed up place with all the Political issues and war. Im not looking for likes by doing this topic, but just want to know if some of you share this unpopular opinion with me! So I love you all and don’t take everything too much in a negative way. Peace, yolo, love yourself , enjoy life , eat a lot
