Don’t say anything that hurts somebody’s sentiment

Your Facebook page is being followed by friends, family members and the stakeholders of your business (including customers). Therefore, you must not post something on Facebook that hurts their sentiment in any way. Offending these people will have a negative impact on your online reputation.

Don’t make any online argument

If you are dissatisfied with any post or comment made by a customer, don’t ever commit the mistake of arguing with him or her online. This shows your indifference and arrogance towards the customer’s reaction and will mar your reputation within a second. Remember, whatever you argue, it is being viewed by the public and hence will create a negative impression about you instantly.

Politeness is key to winning and creating trust

Your polite behavior will always create a positive feeling in the mind of your stakeholders. A polite conversation signifies that you are sensitive about your customers’ feelings.

Always remember that whatever takes place online remains online courtesy the Google server. So, you must be cautious about posting comments and status updates on your business.
