Interesting phrase - social media Tourette Syndrome - but there's alot of it out there.
Social media Tourettes is, in essence, saying the wrong thing at the wrong time on the wrong social media platform.
A few examples I've witnessed recently include:
* Barrages of selling-based, non-permission-centred postings on Facebook Wall areas.
* Automatic inclusions on Twitter lists, again, without permission being gained first.
Remember this: social media is not the place to indiscriminately sell, harrass, or aggressively bombard contacts and potential connections with spam or selling. Seems like such an obvious point to make, but the broadcasters just don't get it.
Social media Tourettes is easy to spot, and if you're exhibiting it - stop and consider the impact on a short, medium and long-term basis for your online reputation.
And ask yourself one simple question: are you afraid of relationship-based marketing?
The power of word-of-mouth referrals and genuine connection-based business is so powerful yet simple.
The sellers and spammers are, of course, masters in social media tourettes. But we can spot it a mile off. It looks cheap and tacky.
Embrace genuine, real, engaged, and authentic connections on social media platforms. Give knowledge, advice and assistance.
Then watch the return come, over time - without you even realising it.
Or, remain stuck in social media Tourettes, and battle on.
