Bad Bullet Points

In a PowerPoint presentation, reducing paragraphs to bullet points helps your audience follow the presentation more easily. But "reducing paragraphs to bullet points" doesn't mean sticking bullet-point icons in front of paragraphs.

As a rule of thumb, if you have to resize your text to 12- or 10-point type to get it to fit, you have too much text. This presentation on social media is a great example of bullet points gone bad. The text is tiny, the bullet points are longer than ten words each, and at least one of them is a full-fledged paragraph.
