    Make sure that you use sRGB and that you leave the colour profile embedded. Recommend your friends / customers to use a browser or image viewer that deserves the name and displays images according the embedded data. AFAIK, Firefox and Safari do the job. Internet Explorer fails here completely, Google Chrome has other purposes anyway.

    Important is to export into sRGB after editing. Edit in whatever you like (sRGB, Adobe RGB ..), that's not the issue. Read about monitor calibration and colour spaces - all well discussed here in this section. First make sure that your images are what you want them to be, which requires a calibrated workflow. Otherwise no point editing any colours. Second is to upload in sRGB since that is the colour space of the Internet. If your customers want to make any reasonable judgment from what they see on their screen then I guess they know about colour management.

    Second this. Probably a hardware calibration is needed. Changing monitor settings may not be adequate.
