    Unless you're living in a computer-less time warp, you've probably been guilty of using e-mail to send a message you didn't want to deliver in person. The thing is, though, words still matter as much online as they do in real time—and they stick around longer. When possible, avoid using social media as an easy out when you're facing a tough conversation or want to spout off an annoyance.

Don Tennant makes no secret of the fact that he has very little patience for online incivility. Mean-spirited, attack-oriented reader comments, especially when they’re posted anonymously, are a particular peeve. His sense of humor remains intact, however, so he's OK with the fact that more than once, he's been chided by some readers as being something of a “Miss Manners” when he address the incivility issue.

In fact, he's such a good sport that he's willing to don his Miss Manners bonnet to share some great netiquette advice from Barry Libert, author of the book, “Social Nation: How to Harness the Power of Social Media to Attract Customers, Motivate Employees, and Grow Your Business.” So here are eight tips from Libert to help you build an online presence that won’t come back to haunt you.
