At Pragmatic, we’re often asked for basic advice on how to use social media – the dos and do nots and a basic list of things to watch out for.

Over the weekend, I stumbled across this: “Navigating the Social Network” (link to the PDF) – produced by the US Air Force as a guide for their personnel when interacting with social media, something they’re having to do more and more often.

Whilst you’ll (probably) definitely want to skip parts like ‘Social Media for Airmen and their families’ and ignore the constant references to OpSec (operational security), there are well thought-out and clearly-communicated dos and do nots, considerations and guides to common social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr.

Pragmatic consider this a great starting point and reference guide for anyone that wants to know more about how to use social media.
