Social Media: 10 Rules to Abide By

May 5, 2011

Social media has its protocol just like anything else to participate, interact and engage. I recently read a good post by Heidi Cohen, Social Media’s 10 Commandments that I thought said it pretty well. Here are some highlights:

  • Be real - Be yourself. You want to make your audience feel comfortable.
  • Know your audience - If you know who they are, you can better understand and know what focus to on.
  • It’s not about you - Talk to the bigger picture of what’s in it for the community you’re addressing.
  • Participate - If you don’t, how can you expect to engage people and build relationships?
  • Share your knowledge - Support the greater good of the community.
