Social Media Etiquette For Business: 20 Dos And Don'ts
By J. Mattern/
"Whenever I hear the word “etiquette”
visions of stuffy old charm schools play in my head. I don’t believe you have to (or even should) be nice to everyone all the time just because you want everyone to like you. It’s okay to dislike people, disagree with people, and share honest opinions as long as you can back them up. I’m also not a big believer in wearing a peachy little persona all the time just because other people tell you that you should.
I’m going to throw a buzzword at you, but one I think really matters — authenticity. I’d rather someone truly be themselves when I meet them in the social media space as opposed to watching them putting on a show.

tools. So don’t do those things to others.
If you want to avoid coming across as a complete jackass, getting yourself banned, or just being blacklisted by your network, here are 20 tips for social media etiquette you might want to keep in mind."Read it here: http://www.dirjournal.com/articles/social-media-etiquette-20-dos-and-donts-to-avoid-looking-like-an-ass/
