Basic Do’s and Don’ts Via Social Media

For the majority of us who are active in social media, the many issue people have in social media are quite annoying.  So I thought I would share some common do’s and dont’s in social media.

DONT’S

Don’t share something you don’t believe in or know something about.  The whole point of social media is to share and communicate.  You can’t have a discussion with people in real life not knowing what you are talking about.  So why do it on any social media platform.

Don’t share every little aspect of your life.  Most people don’t need to know that much about you.

Don’t share every single picture of you while you were “wasted”.

Dont retweet just to retweet.

Don’t self promote too much.  Obviously is you are using social media in your business, you need to do this a little. But you don’t need to tell everyone that you are  “awesome”.  If you really are, they will know.

Absolutely do not send an auto DM to anyone.  This will cause them to quickly unfollow you.

Never, ever copy someone’s content and use it as your own.

Dont be upset if someone unfollows you. It happens.  Not everyone will like what you have to say.

DO

Say hello when someone follows you
