Social media etiquette

Social media etiquette

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

For those of you who have been following my 2017 leap into social media, I am increasingly questioning, “What is the etiquette on here?”. I am finding LinkedIn a great resource and some of the articles are both relevant and motivating to my work. When scrolling down recent notifications, I’ll find someone has put a post looking for a graphic designer/wants a logo designed/needs help with their branding... “That’s me!” I think and add my details. Two days later I see another 50 graphic designers have had their details added too! Do I message again? What is the etiquette? Equally, I am part of a FaceBook Group which does much the same thing. I’ll see someone has asked for the details of a graphic designer and someone I know in the group has had their name put forward. Do I add mine as well, or is this extremely bad mannered/cut throat/dog eat dog?? Never wanting to offend anyone, but also wanting to put myself forward with my great portfolio, 25+ years experience, amazing testimonials etc etc what is the best way to approach these situations? I really don’t know so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks in advance, Natalie (amazing graphic designer!).

I was thinking back to my college days before Macs had taken over the world, and we used to use something called Letraset when doing layouts! You would transfer the letters, only having the one chance to get it right. A...
