Active Rain is built for community and is a wonderful place for us to network with each other . When we blog on Active Rain we make friends with other members, get to know them and it creates a sense of community.
There are community guidelines and one guideline that is important is that we should respect the community.
Whatever we post online can be read by others and will stay on the internet forever.( unless we delete it). We can post 'members only' posts but beware that sometimes people who are not supposed to read it might read it.
We should not use AR as a platform to personally attack our competitors nor should we slander them.
We should show the consumer that we are professionals and should behave in a way that will earn us and our industry respect.
I follow the golden rule in my personal life and in business. If we treat others as we would like to be treated, we will find it easy to follow the guidelines. If I do not like a comment on my post I delete it .I have done it only once. If I do not like someone else's post , I do not read it. If it is spam we can report it.
