Feisty Friday and today I’m sharing what I consider a cardinal sin of asking questions in a group setting. Asking basics that you could easily Google doesn’t cast you in the best light, so ask Google first, then your community, next.
Items Discussed in this Episode:
- Going to a community to ask a google-answerable question time after time is a waste of time (and makes you look bad).
- To be a good citizen of an online community, you need to make sure your question is helpful to others, not just all about you.
- If you use Google to teach yourself how to do something and don’t just have surface knowledge, you can just use that for your clients in the future.
- “Google first, community second!”
