For many years, I’ve been busy spreading the message for people to follow appropriate rules of netiquette on social networking sites, via email, and on their mobile phones. If you picked up a copy of the recent USA WEEKEND magazine, my advice is featured on page 8 in the issue with Jon Hamm on the cover.
For those who missed it, the story is called Social media rules for grown-ups: From Facebook to Twitter – and beyond – be wise and can be found online.
To sum it up, here are 3 simple rules to keep you both netiquette and social media friendly:
- Less is more
- Keep boundaries
- Use common sense
Many thanks to Andrea Bartz for featuring The Rules of Netiquette in her story. Full story on USA WEEKEND.
