Social Media DOs & (Please) DON’Ts

Social Media DOs & (Please) DON'Ts
Just saying “social media” out loud makes me cringe. It’s completely devoid of the heart and personality that make #posting and #sharing so great to begin with. But as we grow into media-savvy fans, brands, or both, we begin to understand why that robotic step back makes sense. Social media isn’t just a way to shout about feelings, it’s also a useful tool and it needs to be treated like one.

When cooking, there’s the recipe, and then there’s the stuff you figure out on your own. Though I can’t really cook, I can post like it’s my job (and sometimes it is). Here’s what I’ve learned. –ADAMJK
