You might be a troll

Recently in a real estate facebook group, I ran into a troll who probably doesn’t even realize he is trolling. He is a drama addict and when there isn’t any drama around him or what he stands for he trolls for it.

What is a troll?

troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses usually for the trolls own amusement.

The easiest way to troll in a real estate Facebook group setting is to introduce a topic that always gets people riled up. Just leave it in a comment, it doesn’t have to be directly related or at all related to the topic being discussed.

Sometimes all it takes is one word like a company name or the name of an organization.

I won’t mention any names because more than anything trolls want to be noticed. For a troll, nothing is worse than being ignored.
