New learning! Just when I thought it was safe to enter the water.
Giving credit to others for their work is something taught automatically in university. Indeed, they specify what referencing system to use. As someone with a research background, it shouldn’t surprise me therefore, there are are guidelines for referencing others work on the internet.
So here is a link to Corey Eridon’s blogpost, “How Not to Steal People’s Content on the Web”
It provides clear guidelines for crediting others work. It covers;
- blog posts
- social media
- guest blogger and ghost writers
- images and visual content
Is this the best post or even correct in what he is saying? I don’t know, however I have to start somewhere and so this is the basis for my ‘rules of crediting’ until I learn differently.
