Tamar Weinberg at Techpedia has posted an Ultimate Handbook to the etiquette of interactions on a number of social media sites. Here?s part of Weinberg?s description of the Handbook:
Would you do the following within real face-to-face relationships?
- Jump on the friendship bandwagon without properly introducing yourself?
- Consistently talk about yourself and promote only yourself without regard for those around you?
- Randomly approach a friend you barely talk to and simply ask for favors ? repeatedly?
- Introduce yourself to another person as ?Pink House Gardening??
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may need a refresher course on social media etiquette--and perhaps real-life etiquette also. Here are some egregious sins that you must not perform on social media sites. Avoid these violations and learn how to manage and maintain online relationships on a variety of popular social media sites.
At the very
list least, this list of dos and don'ts is a great discussion piece for those interested in the evolving norms of online environments.
