15 Minute Instagram Challenge

15 Minute Instagram Challenge

Last week I had the opportunity to be a part of a Master’s Panel for my local chapter of the Rising Tide Society.

A SOCIAL MEDIA ETIQUETTE QUESTION WAS ASKED…

A super smart friend of mine, just posted this question to her Facebook profile and tagged me (along with several other social media professionals)

[side note: the Facebook Plugin was unkind and didn’t let me embed the post, therefore, I updated this post to include a link to the original post by Tracy]

Here is the question Tracy Brown asked

It would be awesome if one or all of my Social Media friends would post a list or thoughts about Professional Social Media Etiquette. Social media evolves quicker than we can keep up.

A SOCIAL MEDIA ETIQUETTE QUESTION WAS ANSWERED…

As I was thinking about my answer, several of the tagged people took the time and gave answers. When it was my turn, I just started to type and these ‘rules’ came out! Nothing like taking an opportunity and running with it, right? >>> Blog Post <<<
