Looking Back: Griffin's "Academic Netiquette" (Feb 2013- What are the major social/legal/professional stakes with sharing online?)

In response to the FGS that examines "the major social/legal/professional stakes with sharing online," Hollis Griffin shared some Dos and Don'ts about "Academic Netiquette." One really interesting suggestion under the "Do not..." section warns against "overvalu[ing] connectivity": "Activity on Twitter, Facebook, or in the blogosphere does not map neatly onto scholarly gravitas. If anything, online activity might suggest the opposite. The frequency of one’s internet postings says little about the quality and rigor of ideas presented therein."

Three years later, what are your thoughts about this or the other netiquette suggestions in the post?
