You’re no longer in high school. The things you post to your social media matter. Shape up your accounts to reflect the person you are and the person you want to be.
1. Check, double check, triple check your post

Learn from DiGiorno’s mistake. Don’t assume you know what anything is about without checking first.
2. Provide value

Tweet news stories, share Facebook articles, tweet events going on around campus.
3. Not your therapist

Leave personal issues outside of the social media world.
4. Resume worthy

Don’t always post what’s on your mind. Future employers will see it.
5. No stealing

Just like in the classroom, no plagiarizing. Give credit where it’s due.
i.e. If you’re going to post a photo from Starbucks’ Instagram, be sure to use appropriate tagging and hashtags.
6. Nobody likes a negative Nancy

Don’t bring others down with negativity. Keep it positive like #MotivationalMonday
7. Grandma Test
If it’s not something you’d share with grandma, you might want to rethink that.

Don’t say it online if you wouldn’t say it in person.
9. Positive self promotion

Showing you’re involved is always a good thing.

Following business professionals isn’t enough. Actively engage in conversations.
