Are you committing any of these social media sins?
I've been personally manning the Jaden Social Facebook and Twitter pages since starting the company in my bedroom back in November 2011. And let me say straight up, getting my hands dirty right from day 1 has been one of the most valuable and eye-opening experiences I could ask for as a business owner, musician and marketer.
In 18 months I have gone from checking in barely a couple of times a week to deal with a handful of interactions, to spending upwards of 12 hours a day monitoring and managing more than 100 interactions 7 days a week (thank you Chrome for the ability to permanently pin tabs to the browser window).
Now I would say I'm a pretty chilled out dude for the most part, but there are some things that musos do (and say) online that really make me cringe. Since I too was once a blissfully ignorant and, at times, cringe-worthy muso, I'm not going to sit here and get self-righteous about it. No, I'm going to do the next funnest (that's a real word, I swear) thing and compile a list of 7 deadly sins I feel are damaging the online efficacy of all my musician friends' content & promotion strategies on Facebook & Twitter.

Ice-T Blasts Coco Over Inappropriate Flicks With Male Fan
The bond that is Ice-T's relationship with his lady love, Coco, might have a few cracks in it. Ice is always vocal about his feelings for Coco, but pictures she took with a male fan has him questioning the relationship.
Ice took to Twitter Saturday (Dec. 8) to call his wife out.
In a classic tweet-and-delete move, the 54-year-old pegged his wife as being disrespectful for posing for photos with an aspiring rapper, AP-9. Ice explained that the guy pretended to be a friend of his, and called him a stalker, but after looking through the pics he changed his tone. 'She made me look and feel like sh-t,' he wrote.
The pics are from Coco's first weeks alone in Sin City.
Of course Coco is known to put her assets and implants on display just about anywhere, but apparently she went too far. She started out by writing 'relax' over the uproar, but realizing her wrongs, the 33-year-old also went on Twitter to apologize. 'I'm sorry baby & to everyone [sic].'
Before long Coco was littered with Twitter-hate, and allegations of infidelity. Do a few pictures mean she's cheating, or just looking for attention?

It's been 15 years since the Notorious B.I.G. was murdered in Los Angeles, and fans still want to get all the details they can regarding the still officially unsolved murder. Now, the autopsy report revealing the exact nature the late Christopher Wallace's injuries and his specific cause of death has been revealed.
TMZ has obtained the autopsy report which confirms what we already knew, that Biggie was shot four times on Wilshire Blvd. while seated in the passenger seat of Chevy Suburban. But what the report details is exactly where the 24 year-old rapper was hit and how he died.
According to the report, 3 of the shots were NOT fatal.
-- Gunshot #1 struck Wallace in the left forearm and traveled down to his wrist.
-- Gunshot #2 struck Wallace in the back, missed all vital organs, and exited through his left shoulder.
-- Gunshot #3 struck Wallace on his outer left thigh and exited through his inner left thigh.
The reports says .. after Gunshot #3 exited the thigh, 'the projectile strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration.'
The fatal bullet was Gunshot #4 ... which entered Wallace's body through his right hip and ripped its way through several vital organs ... before coming to rest in his left shoulder area.
According to the report, the bullet perforated Wallace's colon, liver, heart and the upper lobe of his left lung.
After the shooting, B.I.G. was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1:15am.
You can see an image of part of the report below.
A recent testament to B.I.G.'s is that he is on the latest cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Rest in power Christopher 'The Notorious B.I.G.' Wallace.

Seems like the rap beef is cooking in the street of Philly between Cassidy and Meek Mill. A few days ago, it was reported the two rappers would battle for $100k and it was all in good faith.Now it seems there is a little animosity and shots and darts are being fired.
Personally, I think its a publicity stunt to grow more interest for the battle. In any event, here is the twitter exchange between the two:
