In einem Blogbeitrag von LinkedIn bin ich über eine 12 Punkte Checkliste für die Einhaltung der Social Media Etiquette gestolpert. Der Autor des Blogbeitrages, Ilya Polzin, schreibt zurecht: I love social media. I can connect with others and quickly find out what they’re doing.

I love social media. I can connect with others and quickly find out what they’re doing. But when I learned some people are now finding out about the death of friends via Facebook, I began to despise the impersonal nature of these online social tools.
The truth is, there’s simply a lack of etiquette many people possess when using social media. I recently had a discussion with Lisa Filpi Goeckler, who has a new social media endeavor with ON Food, a startup in Beverly Hills that partners with fitness professionals and real people offering all-in-one food solutions. Lisa shared a few stories with me, the first occurring a few months ago when she found out about her good friend and co-worker’s death on Facebook.
After seeing a mournful Facebook update from a friend, Goeckler was able to use Facebook to confirm her friend had died of a major heart attack. “I was not keen on the way I found out about the death,” she said. “It seemed so impersonal.”
A few months later, Goeckler found out–also through social media–that a relative of hers had breast cancer. Finding this out via social media–not a phone call–was a disconnected and impersonal way to ﬁnd out such serious news, she says.
These stories made me reconsider how we use social media. These two incidences were huge life events that may not have been properly handled by being blasted through Facebook posts.
Social media is valuable, but we should teach etiquette to guide people on the best ways to use it.
Er hat aus diesem Grund eine aus 12 Fragen bestehende Checkliste erstellt, die vor dem Publizieren von Inhalten auf Social Media Kanälen durchgespielt werden sollte.
Ich habe die 12 Punkte sinngemäss übersetzt.
Wer hat weitere Punkte und kann die Checkliste ergänzen?
