Don’t be a Social Media Jerk

Here is some really great advice on social media/networking by Christian authorMark Sayers. Though the article is directed mostly at Christian leaders it is certainly applicable to others as well. I confess to having violated most of these “tips” and will sincerely try and do better. I hope that if you have any tendency toward self-promotion this list will be useful to you too.  Incidentally, in his book Facing Leviathan: Leadership, Influence, and Creating in a Cultural Storm, Sayers wrote: “When leaders die to pushing their own agendas and realize that leadership is the act of dying to self, those around them are profoundly transformed. Selfless leadership opens a space for God to flow into.” This “pushing our own agenda,” is precisely where we can go astray in our use of social media and Sayer’s “tips” can help us make room in the lives of others for God’s holy presence.   RMF
