My Simple Rules For Social Media

My good friends’ son recently turned 13. He was allowed to get an IG account for his birthday. My friend shared my guidelines for social media with him.

1. Be kind
2. Be useful
3. Give people the benefit of the doubt

These rules are Twitter-centric especially #3 which makes allowances for the 280-character limit in Tweets. It’s tempting to get sucked into “someone being wrong on the internet” so having a code can save you from yourself.

Dropping your phone in the toilet also works.
