Social Networking Etiquette Tip #6

Don’t you hate it when you’re at a party and you run it to someone that you haven’t seen in a long time — or you meet someone who you instantly click with — and find yourself in an engaging conversation, only to be interrupted by a tap on your shoulder to where you find yourself in a conversation about something mundane and boring like whether crunchy peanut butter is better than creamy? Yep, I bet, which leads me to Social Networking Etiquette Tip #6:

Don’t butt in — If you are participating in an online discussion, let other people have a chance to share their ideas and perspectives. Wait your turn and you will get your chance to share your ideas and deliver your message. And add value! Don’t be the person who disrupts the flow of the conversation by bringing up something irrelevant or something that only pertains to you.
