On one of my lunch breaks this week I was scanning through Facebook, and I came across a very helpful blog by Anne R Allen here.
Overall I found the blog very useful, and it reaffirmed several points for me.
One of the points, in particular, had me shouting out “Yes! Thank you!” spraying sandwich crumbs into my keyboard and getting some odd looks from my co-workers (you’d think they’d be used to me by now).
That point was about the Direct Message (DM) feature on social media platforms, such as Twitter or Facebook. Anne explains that:-
“Direct messages are personal. Get to know somebody in regular tweets or comments on their posts before you cosy up to them with a DM.”
I agree very much.
