Originally provided by business2community.com, the infographic below offers 36 helpful rules to ensure that you’re properly using social media. For example, one of the first suggestions offered by this display is: “Don’t try to be clever; be clever.”

If you’re trying to grow your client base, as well as entertain the ones you already have, then the content you post on your various sites needs to be both informative and engaging—no one wants to be bored when they visit your page.

Another important rule that is showcased by this infographic: “Update your page or delete it.” Pretty simple, right?
