The Social Media Etiquette Handbook
Techmedia’s 2008 handbook is still relevant today, and can be applied to all new forms of social media. The bottom line is to continue to be more like Reese Witherspoon than Lindsay Lohan.
Quick Tips of What Not to Do
Lindsay Lohan: Ask for an introduction instead of randomly adding someone.
Super Lindsay Lohan: Adding a stranger and repeatedly asking for favours.
Lindsay Lohan: Mass following everyone and then discussing All About You.
Super Lindsay Lohan: Follow someone and then when that person follows you back, unfollow them. Proceed to discuss an inflated level of awesomeness.
Lindsay Lohan: Adding your entire address list to your LinkedIn profile.
Super Lindsay Lohan: Asking every addition for a recommendation.
*It is highly unlikely that LiLo would use LinkedIn, so this is a hypothetical scenario.
