Top Dog Social Media regularly provides great infographics on subjects related to social media. I particularly liked the following infographic entitled “10 Rules for Proper Facebook Etiquette” because I frequently wonder what the proper etiquette is for different social media platforms. This is a great list, although I’m sure others might add additional suggestions.
Number 2 is “When it comes to business, stay away from politics and religion.” This is generally good advice and advice that is shared widely, but who object’s to a President’s Day sale? Or a 4th of July promotion? Businesses can venture into politics or religion if they do so carefully, with respect and in good taste. For example, a business that wishes it Jewish patrons “Happy Rosh Hashanah” or has a Christmas sale may offend a small number of people but it would be a sterile world if we never acknowledged any religious holidays.
Are there other references to politics or religion that businesses can recognize?
