STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Time is money. This cliché is especially true if you run a professional practice or other type of business.
In today’s world, a lot of time is spent in the online world of blogs and social media.
Social media sites are like pharmaceuticals: They need to be tested to make sure they perform as intended – and work safely.
A post on Mashable.com reminded me that the site now known as Facebook first emerged in 2004.
According to Wikipedia.org, Twitter was born in 2006, and LinkedIn was founded in 2003.
Each of these online venues is still relatively new, and their long-term influence – or side effects — on business and society will not be known until years or even decades from now.
In the mean time, there are some things business people should avoid when communicating through any social media platforms.
1) DO NOT use your business’ social-networking Website for anything other than business.
2) DO NOT allow comments or photos to be posted on your company’s social-media pages prior to being screened for unsightliness, expletives, spam or other undesirable content.
3) DO NOT post useless information.
4) DO NOT brag, over-market or state flattering falsehoods about your business, or disparage your competition.
5) DO NOT forget to integrate your social media pages into other marketing, public relations or advertising initiatives you may have.
