Social Network No-No! Just a quick vent and word of advice for those that use social communities like FaceBook or LinkedIn. No-No's that will get you instantly blocked / Ignored / reported for spam / etc.: 1. Do NOT add people to a group without asking them first. 2. Do NOT tag people in a photo advertisement just to get it on their timeline. 3. Do NOT tag people in your advertisement post just to get it on their timeline. 4. Do NOT send random private messages to people you don't know trying to sell / promote stuff. 5. Do NOT send random "Like my page" invites to people you don't know. 6. Do NOT reply in other peoples article / update comments with your latest promotion. 7. Do NOT post unrelated self promotions in groups that have nothing to do with the topic you posted. 8. Do NOT add strangers as friends you don't know or at least have friends in common with. If they haven't ever heard of you, chances are they don't want to be a friend. The above is a very fast way to tarnish your reputation and get blocked / reported for spam. Use social networks wisely. A solid reputation can take years to build and only a few minutes to destroy. once destroyed, it can sometimes be impossible or take twice as many years to get it back.
