Caveat Do not make confidential information public. Note that a negative review or negative publicity can be viewed by everyone. Bad apple in the network can hurt image. For accounts that need frequent interaction, be ready to spend time with updates. Be prepared to adapt to major site changes. May add to “information overload.” Individuals with bogus credentials for groups that do not verify membership. For corporate social media marketing, ensure that a strategy is in place. Nothing beats face-to-face time.
