Do typos drive you nuts?
With action-fast social media and the clicking of small plastic pieces on today’s mobile devices, typos abound. They’re going to happen, but is that important? Well, that depends on the people you’re asking. Generally speaking, in my opinion:
Editorial types—definite “yes”
Accountants—probably important to many, but clearly not to an overwhelming majority Sales types—definite “no”
Inc. Magazine recently had a piece on this very subject. This snippet from the article speaks volumes, especially for those of us who run spell-check on every device we own:
Leaders need to communicate with clarity and authority, regardless of politics, industry or keyboard size. Sloppy communication skills dilute your message, and, at worst, seriously diminish your credibility.
Those three words: diminish your credibility. Right on…or making a mountain out of a mole hill? What do you think? Leave your comments here or write to email@example.com. Maybe we’ll have a “Find the Typos” contest…
