Always. 6.  Own your mistakes. 7.  Be only as good as the company you keep. 8.  Engage with others.

TAKEAWAYS -  Social media is not about shouting at your customer, but about making connections and building loyalty -  Connecting with your fans in-real-time is an invaluable marketing tool -  Offering incentives, contests, and giveaways are great ways to build communities, but remember to nurture and foster growth as well -  Never forget to surprise and delight your fans, as well as reward them for their loyalty
