  7. 7. • don’t comment on blogs using pseudonyms or as anonymous user, try to give an identity to your online contributions. • don’t use blog comments for link building It’s useless, as most blog comments are nofollow, and it’s still perceived as spam. • don’t use content from other blogs or site without giving source attribution. It could be a copyright violation and, even in case of creative commons, it’s still a good practice to attribute and link to the source. inspiration: blog user etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  8. 8. • don’t ask bloggers for link exchange, there are more natural ways to build link popularity in the blogosphere. • don’t use a blog to crusade against somebody. even if this is your goal, it’s always better to have a blog in favor of the opposite you want to fight, rather than having a blog with a negative approach on a topic or person. • don’t forget the ethical code of bloggers (bloggers’ code of conduct). inspiration: blog user etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  9. 9. inspiration: social networks’ etiquette • online conversations replicate real life conversations, and must be considered real. • there is no conversation without listening. conversation is a two way process. • online conversations are not “all about me”, and must focus on community values. Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  10. 10. inspiration: social networks’ etiquette • in real life, would you follow somebody and claim to be his/her friend without a proper introduction? • would you constantly talk about yourself and your business? • would you introduce yourself as “john75” or “quality events”? Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  11. 11. inspiration: facebook manners http://bit.ly/fb-manners Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  12. 12. • don’t ask for friendship if you represent a business. it sounds weird. • don’t add friends without a proper introduction or a welcome message. always say who you are and why / which topics you would like to discuss with new friends. • don’t abuse apps invitations – both for business apps and even worst with zombies / farms. this is spam. • don’t abuse group invitations. if your friends think your event is worth, they’ll come. if they don’t answer, don’t bomb them with reminders. inspiration: facebook etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  13. 13. • don’t use a user profile picture with brands or commercial info. FB is a network for real people, not a catalogue of classified ads. • don’t be a virtual user. besides of being against FB TOS and ground to lose the account, users are always diffident when interacting with avatars with fake / business names. • don’t publish private conversations on users’ wall making them public. this is against the privacy. use direct messages instead. inspiration: facebook etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  14. 14. • don’t tag friends in embarrassing photos or videos. this could impact their privacy. • don’t post unnecessary comments on personal pictures that users upload, such as family pictures. • don’t make it a drama if an user removes a comment or tag you posted. • don’t use facebook to create a professional network, facebook is for personal connections. for business networking try other sites like linkedin or xing instead. inspiration: facebook etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  15. 15. • don’t unfollow somebody without having had an exchange of tweets. don’t unfollow users because they unfollwed you. • don’t do “mass-following” just to make your profile numbers bigger. • don’t use the twitter stream for self- promotion. twitter is a conversational channel, not a ads broadcasting one. • don’t use twitter just to stream your RSS feeds. tweeps don’t like to follow automated profiles. • don’t use your twitter friend list for commercial spam via direct messages. inspiration: twitter etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  16. 16. • don’t use twitter to communicate directly with other users. Use direct messages or email instead. • don’t abuse @references just to be visible on somebody else’s feed. • don’t use twitter for personal rants and revenge. not well accepted by the community, you’ll lose reputation. • don’t leave your twitter profile anonymous. twitter is a relational channel, users want to know who you are. picture and profile info are a must. • don’t abuse #hashtags and trending topics to start off-topic conversations. inspiration: twitter etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  17. 17. • don’t use yahoo! answers for commercial communication. you could be reported for abuse by users, or get banned by the Y!A editorial team. • don’t use answers to provide commercial information. the risks of getting reported by users are higher. • don’t criticize other users for their answers, neither on your questions nor on other users’. even if other users’ answers are not correct, go your expert way and offer a detailed problem solving answer, complete with reference links. inspiration: yahoo!answers etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  18. 18. • don’t fight with other users and do not accept provocations. if in your answer you want to include a feedback to another user who is attacking you, think before posting, and express your disagreement in a kind and professional way. • don’t send personal messages with commercial communications. you will be immediately reported as spam. • don’t forget that yahoo! answers is a community of experts and e-fluencers. your only goal here should be being the top expert of your field/business/brand always offering knowledge and concrete support in terms of problem solution. inspiration: yahoo!answers etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  19. 19. • don’t repeatedly ask other users to watch your videos. youtube users love to discover their own video, or to search for their favorite topics. • don’t customize your youtube channel with interactive elements. youtube is not myspace, and it’s interactive enough. • don’t post off-topics video in response to successful ones. • don’t abuse of comments, don’t post polemic comments, and avoid commercial off-topic links. inspiration: youtube etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  20. 20. digg, stumbleUpon, sphinn, mixx... • don’t ask to vote always only your news. social news communities support knowledge sharing, not commercial broadcasting. • don’t ask other users to digg your articles with direct messages. start a public conversation about the topic instead, and get some relevant content ready that users will love to share. • don’t post always the same article. this is considered to be spam. inspiration: social news etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  21. 21. • don’t post articles that are off-topic to the news portal. if a moderator says that you are off-topic, apologize and don’t insist on publishing the same content, or you will be banned. • don’t use comments for link building. • don’t attack other users if they bury your news. this is generally not against you, but to point out the fact that the content is commercial, spam or off- topic. sometimes bury is used as a sign of disagreement on your content. take it for what it is and don’t start a drama about it. try to avoid it anyway by submitting good content. inspiration: social news etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  22. 22. • don’t integrate all your feeds on friendfeed, each conversation belongs to its original network. • don’t automate your friendfeed profile. FF is an online service but also a professional community. direct inputs on FF have more value than those imported via RSS. • don’t use friendfeed if you are already using other feeds aggregators such as ping.fm / hellotxt, or you will ping-pong spamming all of your networks with duplicate content. inspiration: friendfeed etiquette (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  23. 23. • don’t invite all your friends every time you discover a new social network, and most definitely not by submitting your email address and inviting everybody you ever exchanged an email with. try to understand how the new site and its community works first, then invite just the friends who you think would fit. • don’t start relational and editorial activities on social networks before reviewing the site’s terms and conditions, and its community guidelines. etiquette: all social sites (dont’s) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  24. 24. • stop marketing. • start engaging. inspiration: UNmarketing social media networks are meant for networking Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  25. 25. last tips: about tones and consequences • every time you post online you leave a digital signature. it won’t always be possible to cancel, modify or rectify your posts. • bad content will be online forever, will get indexed by search engines, and will affect your online brand reputation. • think how you content could be received before publishing it. put logic before emotions when facing situations you could repent later. Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
  26. 26. last tips: about tones and consequences • being aggressive and arrogant don’t work in the real life, even less on the web. • while in the real life one could always apologize, online you can have an account revoked or banned in a matter of seconds. • try to be always kind and professional in online conversations. fun is good too. be nice and enjoy what you are doing, the conversation, the experience and the business on social networks will be better. • don’t be stupid! =) Massimo Burgio, Global Search Interactive @ www.globalsearchinteractive.net More presentations available at www.slideshare.net/massimoburgio
