Justin also has some good advice for how to “be a good hang” online and make friends. I know more than a few people who could use that advice to be a little less awkward online. (i.e. Compliment people’s work, not their appearance, um yes!)

Check it out at the link below, but if I was going to give my own take on that idea, is that for my own social media I usually try and consider what I have to offer the people who choose to follow me. I have this blog, obviously. I can share some other, useful, information, and even a laugh or two mixed in.

Now, I’ve left a few jobs over the years, including some that were remote, which I think is a new challenge for a lot of places right now. Most of the time, the departing employee is not exactly top of mind for the organization. You’ve got work to do, and they are no longer part of the plan.
