Three Cardinal Sins of Social Media Writing | Courtney Ramirez, Social Media Today

Ramirez writes
[S]ocial media writing is a bit of a hybrid – part copywriting, part communication tool – so the rules aren’t hard and fast. Social media writing isn’t an exact science – but there are some clear guidelines for what to avoid. 
Here are the headings for her suggestions on what to avoid:
  • Social Media Writing Cardinal Sin #1: Doing too much sharing OR selling.
  • Social Media Writing Cardinal Sin #2: Being boring.
  • Social Media Writing Cardinal Sin #3: Working without a plan.
Ramirez gives good, useful advice, but I must add that at least sins No. 2 and 3 apply to all kinds of writing.
