In the 21st century having a social media account has become deeply ingrained in our society; the old way of networking via who you knew or who knew you is no longer in play. Today a large portion of personal and professional networking is done via social media. With that being said the old way of networking had unwritten rules of engagement which basically were that you did not embarrass yourself or anyone within your network. This study will gauge the need for student awareness in the professional best practices of social media interactive communication. The study is aimed at examining social media use in undergraduate students examining the types of interactions they engage in and what type of social media citizens (good, bad or ugly!) they are; investigating whether or not it is time for universities to add professional social media best practices to the curriculum.
