  14. 24. Social Networking Etiquette aka How to Not Be Creepy • Not everyone wants to make new friends. – Only contact someone online that you have met in person (however briefly). • People want to maintain friendships with people they rarely see. – Expect for people to find you. • Half of users visit their network at least once a day. Most visit at least weekly. – Keep up with expectations of a fast response. – Don’t delay on friend or connection requests.
