5 Simple Social Media Lessons (That You Learned In School) [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social media? What’s that all about?

Well, when you really think about, it isn’t half as complicated as many of us (ahem) like to make out. In fact, here’s the big reveal: you already know how to do it.

Essentially, it’s all about applying the basics. The everyday things you learned way, way back that helped get you ahead in your “real” life. You know, the things you learned back in school.

For example:

1. Play nice
2. Be yourself
3. Pay attention
4. Ask for help
5. Have fun

You’ve very likely mastered these five simple things in your offline world, so why not just port them over to your social media presence on Twitter and Facebook? Check the infographic below from Uberflip for a little more detail. And remember: social media doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, I’d argue something has gone horribly wrong if it is.
