It seems that no one can go on vacation without telling the world about their trip on social media.

If you like to post your pictures and get likes, you know how hard it is to stand out from the crowd.

Here's how to make the most of social media when traveling:

1. Quality over Quantity

One of the best ways to use social media when traveling is to make sure that you don’t go overboard with posting every single update on every single platform that you use.

It’s probably a good idea to spread your posts out between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.2

so that the people who don’t care that you are on holiday don’t have to come home and scroll through 50 photos of you at the beach!

Only post the greatest snaps.

Don’t get sloppy!

2. Don’t Lie

You are traveling somewhere great so you don’t have to go that extra mile and effectively lie by manipulating your photos or ‘checking in’ to places that you haven’t actually visited.

If you are spending all of your time trying to make your traveling look cooler than it actually is, then you are wasting time instead of actually getting out there and experiencing the things that you are lying about!

3. Don’t Humblebrag

We all love to see other people’s holiday and travel snaps on social media;

it soothes the people watching/stalking temptation in all of us.

However, you can push our patience too far if you post ten updates a day talking about how beautiful your surroundings are and how #blessed you feel to be there.

Remember that the rest of us are still in the office at work!

4. It Doesn’t Count as Staying in Touch

You might be posting snaps of yourself on your travels every 90 minutes, but don’t think that that counts as staying in touch with your family!

You still need to make the effort to phone and text separately from the updates that you are putting on your profile page.

They may be pretty but they are not the personal time that your family will want to have with you while you are away.
