  5. 5. Make others feel comfortable.  NEVER USE ALL CAPS!  It makes people feel like you’re shouting at them.  No stalkers allowed.  Liking, re-tweeting, or re-pinning everything someone posts can be annoying and may feel intrusive to the other person.
  6. 6. Acknowledge others.  Reply, like, re-tweet or pin.  If someone sends you something, mentions you in a post, or tags you in a positive way, acknowledge it.  Don’t just walk away.  Remember – when interacting with someone, you are in a conversation with them. If you were together, would you just leave?
  7. 7. Never speak badly of others.  What you post online stays online!  It only takes someone else a few seconds to share your post or re-tweet your tweet.  Passive aggressive posts are good for no one.  The person you’re targeting may miss it entirely.  The person you’re not targeting may take it personally.  And the person who doesn’t get it will just fill in the blanks – and that’s bad news for
  8. 8. Nice-mannered people succeed.  Social media can have an impact on your reputation - personally & professionally.  It only takes someone else a few seconds to share your post. People will remember, and they will talk.  Would you say it in person?  If you wouldn’t say it to their face, you shouldn’t say it online.  In fact, you have to be even nicer online – subtle nuances of communication (tone, inflection, facial expressions) are missed.
  9. 9. Etiquette principles are respect, consideration & honesty.  Respect yourself first.  Nobody wants to hear you berating yourself. Some will feel bad; others will think you’re fishing for compliments.  Be considerate of others.  Avoid excessive posting.  Limit the use of hashtags.  Always ask for permission before posting pictures of others.  Be honest – but please don’t overshare.  What is private should remain private.
  10. 10. Respect other people.  Please don’t swear.  MYM (Mind Your Manners) & WYW (Watch Your Words)  Online networks may be more diverse than the community in which you live and work.  Be sensitive to other points of view & situations.  If you participate in a debate, be prepared to disagree respectfully & let it go when necessary.
