Social media fandom means you will likely be recognized even while running basic errands. If you look like you just rolled out of bed, be prepared for someone to take a picture and post it online. Just roll with it. "You stepped out of the house looking like a hot mess, so you were probably ready to deal with the consequences. If anything, this is a chance to show people you aren't so different than the rest of them," says Mohammad Hosseini. It is an opportunity to relate to your followers.

It will also be an opportunity for the trolls to come out. There is a straightforward rule to always follow for this section of the online population: never feed the trolls. If you do, the interaction will never stop. Mohammad Hosseini stresses, "Let's be honest, some people have too much time on their hands, and they will be the nastiest individuals to deal with. So, don't allow them to do this."

You are also putting yourself out there for a lot of unsavory individuals to notice. If you get an obscene or threatening post, block the person but save the post. This way, if they whine about it online, fire back and say, "Yep, I blocked him/her, and here is why." Case Closed. Mohammad Hosseini also has to deal with a lot of would-be Sugar Daddies and even Sugar Mamas. These invitations should not even warrant a response.

Mohammad Hosseini sums it up by advising people to be prepared for almost any type of interaction. And know your platforms as some allow for adult content that can open doors for exciting communication. In this case, make sure certain filters are turned on so you don't have to see something you rather wouldn't.
