Give Credit Where Credit Is Due
Give credit where credit is due.
Maybe some people forget to give credit where credit is due, or maybe they just don't care…I don't know. It's a pet peeve of mine.
I see so many people putting quotes up on social media, and never giving credit to the original author. It bugs me.
People that aren't familiar with the quote automatically think that the person who's sharing it is the original author.
That's just wrong, because when they start sharing it, if they do what should be done, they end up citing the incorrect author.
There's enough false information out on the internet as it is…let's put a stop to this shall we?
So many things are shared through different social media sites so it's very important to keep things true…so always make sure to give credit where credit is due.
I'm even seeing professional marketers share quotes without citing the original author, and that really bugs me.
