Do You Make These Mistakes in Social Networking?

from: Internet Exposed Files

Whiles there are quite a few things you should do when it comes to social networking there are also quite a few things you shouldn't do. If you want the best possible experience and outcome then you need to learn what you should and shouldn't do along the way to make that happen. Avoid making some of these mistakes and you may find that success is at your fingertips through social networking.

Don't set yourself up for a fall.
Social networking is an ongoing process not a one step effort. If you sign up to join various social networking sites and never do anything more than make an initial post or two you will have a difficult time finding the success you desire. Instead, become part of the community and make efforts to not only get to know other people but also to allow them the opportunity to get to know you. People are much more likely to do business with someone they consider a friend, even an online friend, than a complete and total stranger.

Don't knock the hands that feed you.
Don't be insulting or have an insulting attitude towards Internet marketing or other Internet marketers—especially if you are in the same business. You never know where future joint ventures lie and some of these ventures could be the next great thing in Internet marketing. You never know if you are going to need someone's help in the future and social networks have an amazing talent for remembering every detail and slight along the way.

Don't let social networking take over your business or personal life.
You must be disciplined in order to be good with social networking. It is tempting for many to sit around all day and see what's going on with others. While it's great to make friends and become involved in other people's lives it isn't good when doing so is at the expense of your own life or livelihood.

Don't join every social networking site at once.
Try out one at a time and see how things go. This will give you an opportunity to build connections and learn a little about one before getting involved in another one. There are many that will be beneficial to join but doing so all at once only invites frustration and overload. It also gives you the opportunity to see how different one social networking site can be from the next.

Don't talk bad about people you know online or offline.
Words have a way of sticking around on the Internet and coming back to haunt you. Not only does it look completely unprofessional to bad mouth others, it can also cause problems with your physical acquaintances and careers.

By making efforts to avoid doing these things you can hold yourself to a higher standard and make a better impression, and greater profits, through your social networking social circle. Are you making a positive impression with your social networking efforts?
