The title of this article is self explanatory, so here goes…
1. Death by PowerPoint
If you mean “death by bullet point” then say that instead.
PowerPoint is just a tool. A poor tradesman blames his tools.
2. I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn
…if we’ve never met.
LinkedIn even tells you “Invitations should only be sent to people you know personally”.
Take the hint.
3. Dear Twitter
Twitter isn’t the Batcomputer.
It’s a bunch of people, many of whom would be delighted to help you.
Try “Dear friends” or even #lazyweb – it’s cute.
4. Learning styles don’t exist
The research doesn’t say that.
It says there isn’t sufficient empirical evidence to prove whether they do or don’t exist.
What you do with that pearl of wisdom is another story.
5. If Facebook were a country
We’ve heard this 600 million times already.
How many of these so-called “users” are actually second account holders, imposters, gags, pet dogs and rubber duckies?
Regardless, yes, Facebook has millions of users.
We get it.
