There are widely accepted social media ethics like transparency and anonymity. However, there are also ethical concerns about social networking sites, like privacy, ethics of identity and community, and most importantly, democracy and freedom of speech. India has drafted new rules for social media, which mandate appointment of India-based compliance officers, disclosing first originator of any mischievous message and removal of offensive or illegal content within 36 hours of being notified. Then, there are network-specific etiquettes which users of a particular platform must keep in mind. On Twitter, one shouldn't buy followers; it is also important to not stuff a tweet with keywords. On Facebook, one shouldn't like their own posts or ask for comments and shares. On LinkedIn, one shouldn't ignore the more professional tone of the network. On Instagram, one shouldn't 'overgram' - nobody likes a feed filled with one user. We decode the importance of social media etiquettes and assess the rationale behind the locked Congress Twitter accounts.
