6. Not listening to people and using social media as a megaphone

It isn’t a platform for simply promotion, without interacting and listening to others and sharing information that is not your but may be help someone you’re connected to. If you are using Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and other social media avenues simply to shout about only your business, you are missing an invaluable opportunity to get closer to your key audiences and begin to better understand their needs.
