What NOT to Do on Social Media:

Don't Do It, You May Zap the Buzz!

A Complete List of Things NOT to Do on Social Media:

  1.  Do NOT — Share pictures, photos or artwork that could potentially incriminate or embarrass you. We know, this one sounds like an easy one, but you would be surprised. Or maybe you wouldn’t be! The most recent example is former Representative Anthony Wiener. Whether you think you are sharing it publicly or privately, it is in the cloud forever!
  2. Do NOT — Re-share or re-post links without checking them out first on your own. When you do this, it is damaging to your reputation online; always verify before you re-post!
  3. Do NOT — Ignore comments, responses or conversations by your followers. The quickest way to lose followers or friends? By ignoring them! It is rude and disrespectful.
  4. Do NOT — Jump into the social media pool without a plan! Social media requires planning and takes time and is not to be entered into lightly
  5. Do NOT — Set it and forget it. Creating social platforms and not using them is worse than not doing it at all. Social media requires daily attention either by you, an employee or a consultant that you have hired.
  6. Do NOT  Be negative. This is another simple one; there is enough negativity in the world; we do not need it in the social media world, and in truth, we don’t want to hear it.
  7. Do NOT — Share too much personal information. Social media and social networking allow us to build business and personal relationships; provides opportunities to connect and share and learn. But, we truthfully do not want to know every personal thing going on in your life, at least not in a public format.
  8. Do NOT — Respond to comments or posts out of anger or resentment. It only takes a moment to ruin your reputation online; so, calm down and think clearly before you respond to criticism or something negative.
  9. Do NOT — Copy material and use it as your own!
  10. Do NOT — Forget, these ARE real relationships, with real people. Treat them as such.
