“The Ultimate Social Media Etiquette Handbook” just one of the many gems I’m discovering researching The New Community Rules.

Debra Helleren

Hi, from sunny northern California on Thursday afternoon, April 15th!   I am preparing for our next Social Media webinar with Tamar Weinberg and I am so excited by her great social media smarts that I may not go to lunch today! 

Mel and I will be interviewing Tamar this month, April 29th, 10 am PT, 1.00 pm ET.  She is the author of “The New Community Rules: Marketing On The Social Web”.  I highly recommend you buy this book.  I am half way through and have had many aha moments about Social Media.  She offers a Birds Eye view, dispelling  Social Media confusion, and creating guidlines. 

For example, on page 327 you’ll find a gem of a little book within her book:  “The Ultimate Social Media Etiquette Handbook. ”  It begins:

Social media mimics real relationships in many cases.  Would you do the following in real, face-to-face relationships?

1. Jump on the friendship bandwagon without properly introducing yourself?

2. Consistently talk about yourself and promote only yourself without regard for those around you?

3. Randomly approach a friend you barely talk to simply to ask for favors – repeatedly?

4. Introduce yourself to another person as “Pink House Gardening?”

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may need a refresher course on social media etiquette-and perhaps real-life etiquette also. 

Good stuff!

What more than just a slice of Tamar’s wisdom? Click here to register for her April 29th webinar. Bring your questions!
