In case you were curious about The Rules

Finally! ReadWriteWeb has clarified The Rules of social media (please note "The Rules" (with caps) should be spoken in a loud booming voice).

Are you ready?

Are you sure?

Okay, here they are...

"Blogging? You should be posting twice a day. No, actually that's too often; it abuses people's attention. Wait, actually that's not often enough; other people will eat your lunch. Actually, blogging's dead, so move to Twitter, where you absolutely must follow everyone who follows you, unless you absolutely mustn't, so don't, unless you do. And when they do follow you, sending them an automatic direct message will either lift you into the Twitter elite or damn you to eternal ridicule. Possibly both."

If you're still confused, here are Chris Brogan's rules (which ReadWriteWeb was nice enough to remind me of).

Okay, everybody clear now? :)
