How to Deal with Internet Trolls
The Best Way to Cope With an Internet Troll
Respond as soon as possible to whatever complaint or negative comment a troll has, just like you would with any other negative online review. Be as professional as you can, no matter how unjust you feel their comments are. Sometimes, it’s best to admit you may be at fault to try to pacify the troll. Then, try to get the conversation offline.
Sometimes, though. those internet trolls can simply be relentless. There may come a time when it’s best to stop responding altogether. Often, internet trolls get a lot of gratification from pushing your buttons and are just looking for attention. If they still won’t give up, report them to the social media platform they’re using. Social media sites are taking internet trolls a lot more seriously these days, and will take action to get them blocked from your page.
