SOCIAL MEDIA REMINDER
Boosters may not initiate or “accept” friend requests of prospects on Facebook, but they can “follow” recruits on Twitter. Boosters should never post on a recruit’s “wall,” reply to a “tweet,” send them any kind of direct message, or take any other action that would constitute contacting any recruit.
