The end of the year is a time for reflection. A time to think about self-improvement, and how to the learn from the mistakes you have made over the past twelve months.
This extends to social media as well. And boy, did 2016 feature a lot of mistakes; from fake news to terrible memes, we're all guilty of at least one social media faux pas.
Did you post any of these this year? If so, you might want to think about your online conduct.
