digital marketing netiquette

Social media has no ‘undo’ button and although most social media users are very forgiving of typical newbie problems — we’ve all been there — poor manners/social skills will get you blocked, un-friended or worse in record time.

Dictionary.com defines ‘social’ as:

  1. pertaining to, devoted to, or characterized by friendly companionship or relations: a social club.
  2. seeking or enjoying the companionship of others; friendly; sociable; gregarious.

Social means friendly, and friendly means showing kindness, or doing onto others as you’d have them do to you. Poor social skills didn’t work in kindergarten, and it doesn’t work in business, so why is it that so many people just don’t get it and/or take the time?
