Check Your Links

If you are like the rest of us, you have probably posted a link on a social media site.  Everyone does it.  No big deal.  But what do you do after you post?  That is where the problem comes in.

Recently I clicked on a link that was posted by a business associate.  It was a link to an article that I had a real interest in.  After I clicked I got a message saying the link was no longer available.  How could that be?  The link was just posted a few minutes earlier.

What happened is the link was never checked.  After the business associate posted the link, she never checked to make sure it actually went through.  In this case, it did not.  Any number of things could have happened to the link, but if the associate checked it she would have known it was not there and she could have fixed the problem.

This is not the end of the world.  It is just frustrating for me to not be able to read the article I had an interest in.  It is also, in my opinion, unprofessional on the part of the person posting the link.

Take the time to check your links and make sure everything is in place.  Your clients and business associates will appreciate it.
