You may remember my recent case study on bad social media manners. Well, here is another one for you.
Earlier this week, as I was checking my daily Google Alerts emails, I noticed a title that looked strangely similar to the one I had used for one of my recent social media articles on Examiner.com.
I clicked the link and found out that a blogger had actually copied and pasted this article verbatim on his blog. No source was quoted. He had just included the signature I add at the bottom of each of my articles.
My first reaction was to leave a comment under the stolen content. I explained to the blogger that he could only quote an extract and would have to link to the rest of the story on Examiner.com.
Here is what happened in screenshots. Click each picture to see it in full size in a new tab.
