  • Integrity is consistency of actions, values, methods, measures and principles. Depth and breadth of a value system may also be significant factors due to their congruence with a wider range of observations. Ethics Disclaimers, honesty, fairness
  • Integrity is consistency of actions, values, methods, measures and principles. Depth and breadth of a value system may also be significant factors due to their congruence with a wider range of observations. Ethics Disclaimers, honesty, fairness
  • Thou shalt not make an idol of your blog. Take time off. Don’t get overly upset. And remember: it’s just a blog. It’s just Facebook. It’s just Twitter. It’s not the end – or beginning – of the world.
  • Don’t hide behind anonymity. Be open, honest, and transparent. It makes you trustworthy. Exceptions: teachers on Twitter, food critics, others?
  • Don’t slander other people, other bloggers Be considerate
  • What can you really get out of following 98,000 people? Do you really have 400 friends? Define what friend means to you in the context of social networking.
  • I don’t have much patience for someone who cannot take the time to type out a DM or a @reply. They are either: A) Just using twitter as a marketing tool and don’t care about anything else. B) They are extremely busy and wont be using Twitter much anyway. Social Media is built on authentic communication and relationship building. If you want to break that down…Break it down somewhere else. But I am a Marketer. I don’t have time to respond to every follower. Ok then…don’t. But know who your audience is. Take 15 minutes every morning & find out who wants to hear you speak. Find a few every day & thank them – personally!
  • If you like it, share it with others.
  • Someone’s boss could easily find a photo. If it’s a harmless photo from high school, fine. But what if it’s a not-so-harmless photo … Don’t help your friend lose a job.
  • Don’t forget PleaseRobMe.com
  • Occasionally is fine, but don’t use social media for blatant self-promotion.
  • TMI Twitter is forever. Watch what you tweet. Separate business from personal? More privacy? Lock your profile.
