What is Troll?

Definition and meaning of Troll:

A troll is someone who posts inflammatory, derogatory, or offensive comments on social media to provoke strong emotional responses.

While trolls may have various motivations, they usually enjoy causing disruption and chaos.

Anyone who has spent time on social media has likely encountered a troll at one point or another.

They can be frustrating and disruptive to many users. So the best way to deal with trolls is to ignore them. As engaging with them will only give them the attention they crave.

It’s important to remember that not everyone who disagrees with you is a troll. It’s okay to have disagreements without descending into name-calling and personal attacks.
