It’s amazing how some days just have a theme. Today in my daily ritual of browsing my social spaces, the theme of being real, being helpful and being polite when participating in Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. kept coming up over and over again.
First, I read a great article by Jonathan Morrow on Copyblogger, (which creates the Genesis Framework that I use on my blog) called “21 Warning Signs You’re Becoming a Social Media Snob” that gives great insight and a cool self-evaluation tool to see if you have become a “Social Media Snob”. I won’t divulge my score, but I think I’m doing okay, but it’s a good reminder that I can be doing better. My favorite part of the article is the solution, which is to show empathy and caring in your social interactions online.
