#1: Always Use The Right Tone

How do you use the right tone when creating social content in text, for updates, tweets, posts and comments? Simple.

Tone is usually best communicated through your level of formality, your diction and point of view. For example:

Formality: Colloquial language works best online, and is the use of relaxed, informal spoken language translated into words. Write as you speak, just like this!
