Infographic: Over half of online teens share personal information with strangers | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
One of the scariest things as a parent is to understand how to prepare my kids for their digital future. It is beyond anything that I experienced growing up.
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

The other day, I was discussing with someone the dangers of using social media without rules. Since Millennials are the only generation that did not have to go through their formative years without a computer, teaching them the basics is now vital.

 

Jim Dougherty shares a great infographic on his blog. It is full of eye-opening stats on Facebook usage. For example, do you know that 55% of teens have given out personal information to someone they don’t know?

“You’re Creeping Me Out!” The Dark Side of Social Networking

“You’re Creeping Me Out!” The Dark Side of Social Networking | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
Social media is great for making new friends, but it also attracts the creeps.
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

From generic introductory messages to favors, social networking is becoming the field where lack of professionalism abounds.

 

It’s time we started talking about it!

 

“[B]efore you send that friend request or ask for a “shout out,” think about how you’d feel if the tables were turned. If you’d be creeped out or annoyed, chances are I will be too.”

 

An excellent article by Kerry O’Shea Gorgone.

12 communication basics everyone should know | Articles | Home | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
You know that saying about not getting a second chance to make a good first impression when you meet someone?

 

Well, when you’re communicating with someone, especially if it’s electronically or by phone, you get even less slack—particularly when it’s for work. That’s when lost opportunities can have bottom-line consequences.

 

If you want the prospect to open your email, the client to return your call, or the journalist to read your pitch, you’ve got to communicate impeccably.

 

Here are some of my favorite basics:

21 Freelancing Social Media Faux Pas | FreelanceFolder | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

You’ve heard how wonderful a tool social media is for freelancers. For little to no cost and a minimal time commitment you can find exposure for your freelancing business that used to be beyond the reach of most solo professionals.

Top 25 Social Media Pet Peeves Resumebear Online Resume

Top 25 Social Media Pet Peeves Resumebear Online Resume | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

What is your social media pet peeve? Mine is people who just post quotes all day long, thinking they are being inspirational. What’s yours?

 

The number and variety of responses I got was amazing, so I thought I’d digest them into categories. The value, here, is to help each of us understand what irritates other people in the realm of social media. Not that we have to please everyone, but if there are a lot of folks who are irritated by a specific behavior (ahem…auto-direct messages on Twitter), we might think twice about engaging in that behavior via our personal or business social media channels.

 

So…here they are! 25 social media pet peeves contributed by the readers of SocMedSean.

Twitter, Facebook, and Airtime Are Waging War Against The Internet’s Stupidity | TechCrunch

Twitter, Facebook, and Airtime Are Waging War Against The Internet’s Stupidity | TechCrunch | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

The Web is overrun with dumb hashtags, chart-topping fart apps, and guys just waiting to show you their d*cks. But with this week’s launch of Twitter’s Tailored Trends, Facebook’s App Center, and Airtime’s safety net, some tech companies are fighting back.

 

If you can’t get people to act smarter, at least you can hide their idiocy, and that’s what each of these products does. But can we make the Internet smarter and safer with without whitewashing away differing opinions and locking ourselves in an echochamber?

Where’s the ‘dislike’ button for social-media bragging? | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

Question: Why do people feel the need to use social media to constantly brag about their lives? I can’t tell you how many pictures of bouquets and dinners and chocolates popped up on my Facebook feed around Valentine’s Day — on top of the already daily descriptions of "perfect boyfriends" and pictures of vacations in real time. When did people stop living life and start just trying to prove to others that they are doing so?

13 Ways to Create a Cringeworthy Social Media Presence

13 Ways to Create a Cringeworthy Social Media Presence | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
This week, a new free social media tool called Klouchebag hit the web. If you haven't played around with it already, it's a tool that tells you how ... uh ... annoying you are on Twitter. Yeah, we'll just go with "annoying" for the sake of this blog post. But it got me thinking: social media can be chock full of valuable content, but it's often buried among the mundane and useless social media updates, or hidden behind poorly constructed social media profiles. And this makes a marketer's job mighty hard.

 

So this post is going to outline all of the worst offenders we've seen in social media. If none of these apply to you, congratulations! Use these as entertainment over your lunch break. Otherwise, consider these cautionary tales to help protect your own social media strategy.
