Social media why is it important
The story of the girl and the way she reacted to a negative comment on Instagram is one of the case studies presented in BrandImage International Institute's session on social media etiquette. Lee explained that social media conduct is now being offered as part of a two-day etiquette course for children and youngsters, which has been around since 2018. "The idea to dedicate part of our etiquette course towards social media started through a series of discussions with our corporate clients and parents. Some of our corporate clients asked us to look into this because they are dealing with younger employees whom they feel can benefit from some lessons on social media etiquette," Lee explained. She added that parents have raised concerns that their child's employability in the future may be affected due to having a negative social media presence.

Pro-Trump online personalities got together at what the White House billed as a gathering of "digital leaders" where invitees expect to discuss what they say is censorship on social media platforms.

Messages, including user names, will be examined for comments, metadata, location and hometown identifiers.
