Mind your manners on social networks

Do we still need to be talking about minding our manners on social networks? It appears so.

I am a member of quite a few Facebook groups. I also know many bloggers that have very active Facebook pages that require input from people essentially unknown to one another. Moderating these groups can be a full time job. In these groups people often ask for and offer advice. And we have come to expect that people can be pretty protective of their beliefs and their decision making. The choices they make will be vehemently defended to people they have no other connection with except for their joint decision to ‘like’ a particular page or join a particular group.

Sometimes these groups work great. Sometimes they offer enormous support to those that are struggling. Sometimes they give advice, offer alternative options or opinions and people in return get help, motivation, inspiration or just a virtual hug.
