Business Collaboration Meet the Business Social Network: Etiquette
Business collaboration tools, such as Chatter, are taking companies by storm. It makes sense, these tools provide the most efficient way to increase productivity, boost morale, and create a sense of community within your organization. But how should you “act,” post, respond, and question on these platforms? If you are already engulfed in the social media phenomenon in Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, then you probably already know or have a good idea as to how you should contribute to these collaboration tools. To address this, I have created an aptly titled list provided below. The list is called Business Social Network Etiquette. I know, fancy names, right?
BUSINESS SOCIAL NETWORK ETIQUETTE
1) DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPS! Typing in ALL CAPS online represents shouting. Unless you are shouting and you want everyone online to know it and know it forever (because it does not go away), refrain from typing in all caps.
2) Do not post inflammatory comments. Trying to get a rise out of someone online is not the best way to show your professionalism.
