“Call-Out Cards” For Online Boundary-Pushers

Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 8.47.42 AMHave you ever seen a social media post that you thought was offensive, mean, or just not cool?

Have you ever been bombarded with text messages and felt pressured to text back in split-seconds?

Have you ever been stumped about how to respond to these and other online boundary violations?—It’s hard to respond to someone who is abusing your online space, or someone else’s!

ThatsNotCool.com is a public-service organization that is designed to educate people using online spaces about how to respect boundaries.

Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 8.47.33 AMThey’ve put together a collection of “call-out cards” that you can post as replies. There are images that you can send if someone is calling you, texting you, or emailing you too much, and if someone is violating your social-media boundaries—for example, posting private or false information about you on your timeline or others’.

Which of these “call out cards” might you use, and which might you not? And why? Let us know in the comments!
