Have you ever found yourself sitting behind the computer screen wondering why David keeps posting pictures of his ugly dog? Thinking why Matt keeps poking you, and what does that even mean? Or why Sarah tagged me in the picture that she looks great in, while I look like a bug hit me square in the eye?
Welcome my friends, to the Book of FACES!
Almost everyone you know is a Facebook user. I recently changed my settings to see all friends’ updates. While I enjoy keeping up with my Facebook pals via the click of a button…I am constantly taken aback by the blatant narcissistic and downright offensive posts. Becoming more and more annoyed I kept scrolling to see what I would find. Then, it was in that scrolling that I had a moment of enlightenment. They knew what they were doing, and it was just a joke… wasn’t it? Which brings us to our next topic, Facebook etiquette.
Tagging friends in pictures you know they look bad in. We all love when we get a good picture of our self, but what about your friends? It is bad enough you post the bad picture for the world to see, but tagging them too?
Selfies. There’s nothing worse than seeing a bathroom selfie. There are just some places a camera doesn’t belong, and in the bathroom, with you, your shirt off, isn’t one.
Liking your status. We get it, you posted it, and we will go ahead and assume you like it!
Sending game requests. In the real world people do not have time to feed their sheep, make sure to keep their farm watered, or crush candy.
Checking me into places. Not all people want the world to know where, who, what and when! I am sure that when I go to happy hour, I don’t want my boss seeing I’m at Kung Fu Saloon, playing video games, downing a beer or 10, with my coworker. Come on people its called privacy!
Don’t suffer from Facebook Jealousy. If you haven’t gotten the hint, people tend to post the best parts of their lives, like amazing 5 star vacation’s, spending time with beautiful people, sharing pictures of their new Whiteflash bling, Louboutin red soles, the pool party hosted at the HUGE house you could fit your whole family, and your family’s family in. No need for jealousy, do you think they would post their overdraft fees, bed head, burnt dinner, or their Friday night at home, alone, with their dog/grandma?
YEAH THAT’S WHAT WE THOUGHT!
Stay classy my Facebook friends @SociallySavvySEO
