Like I’ve said before, social networking is all about building community. Just like in the community you live in offline, the people who have credibility online are those who engage others and provide value for the community, which leads me to my final social networking etiquette tip:

Have fun and be creative — Think of ways you can share information about your article, book, writing service or yourself that are fun and make people want to follow you. Make fun videos, write fun blog posts and really put yourself out there to engage your audience. Don’t just regurgitate what you know; make it a fun experience for you and your friends, followers and readers.
