Have you been loyally posting your brand photos on all of your social media platforms, and just aren’t getting the loyal turnout you’ve been expecting? Do you want to expand your online visibility and can’t figure out what you are doing wrong?
Maybe it’s because you have been ignoring some comments on Facebook, or not crediting users with a “hat tip” when sharing content on Google+. Do your tweets run all the way to 140 characters, leaving no room for others to include your username in a retweet? That’s another no-no. Basic etiquette principles apply to all social networks, and every platform comes with a unique set of rules.
Just because you have dutifully created a Facebook page, a Twitter account, an Instagram, doesn’t mean your job is done. If you want your business to grow, you are going to need to learn how to reach people across platforms. This infographic is a handy guide to social media etiquette for each of the main platforms.
