How To Avoid Being Misinterpreted Online

Use this checklist before you post anything online.

  1. Be clear in what you say. Simplicity is good.
  2. Use simple words—never use a long word when a shorter one will do.
  3. Ask yourself if an average 12-year-old would understand it.
  4. Add images and graphics if they make your point clearer.
  5. Use short sentences, and keep paragraphs to four sentences or fewer.
  6. Read it out loud to yourself and see how it sounds.
  7. Ask a colleague if it makes sense before you post it.
