Social Collaboration Tip: Don’t hijack another post
While it may seem like a silly statement to say, I see it all the time. Just because it’s easier to ask another question or you think it relates to the topic at hand, don’t start another conversation in an existing entry. It makes it confusing to follow along with the original topic and causes people to abandon the question. When you have several subtopics going on, the original idea gets taken over and is never fully discussed.
Instead, start a new topic for you idea, question or thought. If relevant to the other topic, simply place a link to your new topic in the original discussion. This way, all ideas will get the full attention they deserve.
