Given the prevalent use of social media among professionals, small businesses, huge corporations, and everyone in between, it still surprises me that five social media crimes are continually being committed.The funny part is that all of these crimes totally ignore the fact that social networking is social. Communicating on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter is no different than talking to someone in person, on the phone, via text, or through email; it’s just a new platform for doing so. OK, time to get up on my soapbox. In no particular order, here are the five social media crimes you need to avoid commiting: 1. Sending LinkedIn invitations without personalizing the message “I would like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn.” Great, but why? And also, please remind me where we’ve met if we’re not super good buddies. Throw in something you remember me mentioning for extra brownie points. But basically, don’t be so lazy you can’t take 30 seconds to compose a short note to me. It smacks of sloppiness. Be sure to see the original and check out the other four shocking social media crimes.
