Believe it or not the rules differ with business and personal texting. Here are a few nuggets to remember when it comes to texting for business: Ask for permission before you begin texting someone you have never texted before. Avoid texting people who don't text you.

And now, with the explosion of social media tools like Facebook, blogs and Twitter, it’s easier than ever to provide friends and followers with captivating content—even if it’s not your own.
