Tuesday Tip: Dealing With Bullies

Blog_Tuesday_Tips-compressor

Tuesday Tips is part of our Smule Inspire program. Through shared performances, tips, guest blog posts by veteran users, we hope that Smule Inspire will do just as its name implies: inspire all users in the community – to connect, collaborate, and create music together … ultimately to have the best experience possible on Smule.

Q: I usually get positive feedback on my performance, but sometimes people can say hurtful comments. How should I respond?

The number of negative comments directly correlates to the size of a growing community. Trolls go to where the people are – and sometimes those comments can hurt. Let’s be honest, in this day and age – it’s easier for people to state their opinion behind a computer screen or an app than say anything in real person. Our Smule Inspire Team talks about the best way to handle this.

I’d say this. Sometimes it’s better to say nothing at all. The negative things are said to get a reaction from you, walking away can be hard sometimes but I’ve learned it’s the best for me. Know you find joy in what you do and dust your shoulders off. Plus SMULE is mostly positive energy so people stick up for you when you least expect it.😍” — Lolosingss

Lo is absolutely right. If you ignore the negative comments they will get bored and move on to someone that will give the reaction they are looking for. Don’t let anyone dim your light!” –Shane_TV 

“People who are hurtful, i delete & block. Because this should not be in Smule. Everyone is there to have fun & yes there are people with better voices & some who don’t sing very well, but everyone has a unique voice & singing makes people usually happy or emotional. So it’s nobody’s business to judge others in a bad way!!” –Angels_Nadine

“Yes I thank them for listening and offer a friendly reminder to stay positive. Lots of those individuals just want attention and after I respond to stay positive they follow or join me, go figure!” – JeffreyAKG_TV
I agree with Lo. Not acknowledging the hurtful comments has a lot of power. Most importantly, it takes away power from the person saying hurtful things. If you do feel the need to respond, kill them with kindness! A good option would be something like “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I respect that! Thank you for taking the time to listen :)” –Annah_TV 
If you have a question you’d like to ask or even a topic you’d like to learn more about, please fill out the form on the Smule Inspire page!

Smule Spotlight: WillToy

Smule Spotlight: WillToy 

WillToy is actively on Smule where he participates in many groups such as: @SingRepublic @_FreeSoulzMusic_ @OneLoveOfficial. He started Sing! 5 months ago, and has already sung over 4,000 recordings. Now that is fun way to spend your time! 😉

Fun fact about you?

I love Sports. Other than music, basketball, baseball, and football were my other passions growing up. And that still kind of holds true to this day. Sports and music have always been what I’ve connected to the most.

Favorite performance?

This is by far the hardest part of this process. Narrowing down to only one favorite is basically impossible. That being said being able to arrange and sing Boondocks with Annah_TV and Valli_TV is a definite highlight for me. Annah has became a real friend of mine. They’re both so talented and the fact that I have the opportunity to get to do things like that will always be amazing to me.

 

What makes you excited to Sing!?

I love being able to express myself through music. I’m not a great speaker, so the opportunity to sing in front of people and express myself in that way is huge for me. Getting to sing with some of the amazing talent that is on The Sing! App will always be amazing to me. I always have wanted awesome singers to be able to sing with. Through this app, I’m able to do that literally all the time. Some of my literal best friends I have met through this app. If I never sing another note, finding my friends in My groups FSM and OneLove have been worth being on Smule. I know for certain that my friendships with some of the members in FSM are going to last a lifetime. And I’ll always be indebted to Smule for that.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?


I’d probably want to be able to be invisible. Or teleportation. If you’re passing out superpowers, can’t I just have both of those?

 

Who is your biggest influence?

Without a doubt my mother. She’s showed me love most people never get to experience my whole life. She’s been the most supportive mom that anyone could ever have. It makes me happy when I’m able to make her proud of me.

Group Directory Form

Yesterday we had our Smule Inspires suggest tips on different ways to find groups to join. This led to a great suggestion that we provide a directory where groups can list themselves so people can find you! So, we are going to do just that. If you are a leader or organizer of an active group on Smule, fill out the form below to be listed in our new groups directory!  Only the name of your group and the leader/organizer’s Smule profile will be listed.
Even if you aren’t accepting more people in your group, it’s nice to be recognized in our community!
