Friendly Advice - Bad Communications Practice
It is generally considered bad practice to use an acronym without spelling it out on first reference. It is fine in the headline for brevity, but every communications professional I know says to always spell it out on first reference. The fact that I know BYOD means Bring Your Own Device is irrelevant if I have to think about it for a second or if I'm new to the industry and don't know the jargon. If I happen across your website as a curious outsider I shouldn't have to use context clues or search for an acronym to figure out what it means. You guys seem to do this a lot, and it would be incredibly helpful if you would just spell it out. Thanks!
