10 common social media mistakes

Paige Henson of Macon.com, shares the 10 common social media mistakes that individuals and companies make when creating–and maintaining a social media presence. The list, as Henson describes, is “wincingly bad” but we think its a friendly reminder for the social media pros to stay on top of their game.

  1. Posting a page and then walking away from it.
  2. Setting up a social media site if you’re paranoid.
  3. Spamming others with a constant stream of promo messages.
  4. Joining a social media network if you don’t understand how it works.
  5. Assuming social media networking can replace traditional advertising and public relations.
  6. Having a presence on every social network platform you come across.
  7. Expecting to realize direct sales.
  8. Thinking others will flock to you.
  9. Don’t think because it’s cost-free it isn’t expensive.
  10. Don’t assume it’s a ‘necessary evil.’

Any others that you’d add to the list?
