How To Follow The Social Networking Rules


This is the web. There are no rules, right?


A social networking tool I use is Launch Pad because it focuses on those here in Eastern Washington.

Recently, I published 2 business related videos as well as a couple of blog articles on my page within their system only to have them removed faster than I could blink.

Before you think them unkind, it is important to understand that they have their standards and processes that they want people to follow. I found out that videos designed to directly appeal to business opportunities simply do not fall within the requirements of their social networking rules.

I have one of two options at this point.
1. File their website under "C" and move on to other opportunities.
2. Choose to design my material in a way that is acceptable for them.

There will be time where option 1 makes more sense than option 2 within your own business building endeavors. However, given that is based within the territory of the demographics for this social networking platform, following their rules makes a great deal of business sense for me.

Therefore, as you work with new social networking systems, make sure to follow their social networking rules or run the risk of being cut off at the pass.
