Social media is all the rage. All the cool kids are using it; at least, that's what the cool kids on the internet are telling us. The number of businesses on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and YouTube is mind-boggling, but the real question is how many of them are using the tools wisely?
Today's post is written specifically for those responsible for managing a Group on Facebook. Facebook Groups don't get as much buzz as Facebook Profiles (soon to be known as Timelines) and Facebook Pages. Still, there are many wonderful uses for Groups. I belong to many, including some business, community or family related. Serving as an Admin of a Facebook Group can be incredibly easy or a huge time commitment, depending on the size of the group and how closely the group's content is moderated.
The email I received from Gina had a very simple subject line: "Hello." The body of the email was also simple, just a link without any other text. Ugh; spam. I knew immediately what had happened. Somewhere, she had clicked on a malicious link and all of her contacts received the same email.
To my friends who have received the bossy emails from me lately, I'm sorry. I tried to be nice when I told you to change your password right away and delete all the posts you'd sent to your friends. I know you didn't like hearing about this. I'm sorry, but I've got to say, it's not me, it's you.
