To post or not to post? That is the question for many modern wired women. And the answer can be tricky. Whether socializing with friends or building your professional online footprint – it all can be quite confusing.

To help you navigate the online space with more ease, Randi Zuckerberg – yes, the sister of Mark Zuckerberg – sits down with SiriusXM host/veteran journalist, Perri Peltz for an exclusive interview on the SiriusXM Leading Ladies series. Zuckerberg is not only a former marketing executive at Facebook and current CEO/founder of Zuckerberg Media, she’s also the editor-in-chief of online site Dot Complicated and a recently published author.

Her new book, Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives, is an in-depth guide to etiquette on the Internet – from unfriending with grace, to crowd sourcing, to teaching your kids the rights and wrongs of the Web, and even to those OMG moments of seeing yourself tagged in not-so-flattering pictures!

So what are some of her go-to tips? For one thing, Zuckerberg suggests keeping tech out of the bedroom and never falling victim to envy online.

“People talk about FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) a lot  – but remember, just because a friend of yours is posting a picture at a great party or great vacation, it’s not a zero sum game,” she said.

To hear her reasoning and the rest of her top tips, listen to the clip below. And tune in Saturday for more survival tips on living in a tech saturated world.
