The Ten Commandments of Social Media

Looking for some guidlines with what to post, what not to post? How often to post? Or even what to think about BEFORE you post?

We locked our interns in the conference room for exactly one hour and challenged them with coming up with the Ten Commandments of Social Media. Here's what they came up with. Do you agree? Disagree? Felt they missed something? We'd love to hear what you think.

Tune in next week when our Interns tackle a specific question for Car Dealers. Strategies and tips for starting conversations, gaining fans, generating interactions.
