Everyone need not apply. 4. Offer information of value. Don't talk just about your- self and your company. 5. Don't approach strang- ers and ask them to be friends with you just so you can then try to sell them on your products or services. You will quickly lose credibility and your so-called 'friends.' 6. Pick a screen name that represents you and your company well. Don't call yourself 'Loserl' unless you want to be known by that name. 7. Don't send out requests for birthdays, invitations to play games or other timewasters for those using the site. 8. Don't put anything on the Internet that you don't want your future boss, current client or potential clients to read. 9. Check out the people who want to follow you or be your friend. Your mother was right when she said that people will judge you by the company you keep. 10. If someone does not want to be your friend, accept their decision gracefully. They have the right to make that choice and you have to accept it. 11. Never post when you're overly-tired, jet lagged, intoxi- cated, angry or upset. 12. Compose your posts, updates or tweets in a word pro- cessing document so you can check grammar and spelling be- fore you send them.
