American Express does a good job in spreading the word about social media, so the open forum link is well worthwhile in maintaining and checking things out. I came across an article “5 Often-Forgotten Social Media Etiquette Rules” which I think is valuable, if not certainly a great reminder of etiquette social media style.
Here are the big five as noted by Jean Aw.
One point I completely found out of line, “By now, most of us are pretty practiced at living online”. If Jean was speaking to 30 year olds I’d agree, but I’d suggest that the 40 plus group has a long way to go. I’d suggest that over 50% are NOT engaged with either facebook or twitter, a scary thought for sure.
As I noted, follow Dale Carnegies rules “How to win friends & influence people” and you’ll be a leader online and offline.
