  13. 13. 5 Rules of Social Media 1. Listen. It's not about your organization. It's about people's relationship with you. Listen before you speak. 2. Get Involved. Social media is about conversations and building relationships. It takes effort and time. Don't just talk about yourself. Be inspiring. 3. Give up control. You can't control the conversation. If you want people to spread your message, you have to trust them. 4. Be honest. You can't spin the truth with social media. Be open, honest and authentic in everything you say and do. 5. Think long term. Don't expect immediate, easily measurable results. It takes time to build trust and make connections.
