7 Facebook Don’ts That People Do Anyway

Many of you need to wear a string around your finger to remind you of the don'ts on Facebook.

Facebook can bring you hours of news, resourceful information and laughs galore. There are those of you however, who need to wear a string around your finger to remind you of the don’ts on the popular social networking site. Just because you’re given a forum in which to express yourself doesn’t mean you have to abuse the power. Can I get an “Amen?”

Just like everything else, there are some rules and regulations that you’ll need to follow while you’re on Facebook, take a look-see:

Don’t Forget To Post A Profile Picture Of Yourself

So even your chin has tripled over the years, or you might be in dire need of a few kegs of botox, or you’ve morphed into a Ma or Pa Kettle toothless lookalike, no matter what’s the excuse you’ll need to pick a pic, get it airbrushed, then download it onto your Facebook page pronto. By not putting up a profile pic of yourself you’re automatically deemed a ‘fright’ by default!

Don’t Nag

I’m sure you’ll get a few boo-hoos from a handful of friends when you ask them to support your trichotillomania cause. But please know, that for the most part, people don’t want you flooding their inboxes with ’causes.’ Understand, far too many people are just indifferent and your trying to rekindle some facet of empathy is a ‘lost cause!’

Don’t Be A Promiscuous Friender

In other words, don’t be a Facebook whore! Just picture yourself getting a ‘friend’ request from someone who you don’t, or barely know. How many times have you pinched your nose, closed your eyes, winced, then hit that ‘allow’ button to let that unwelcomed person into your arena of friends? Horrible feeling, isn’t it? So why inflict that kind of pain and discomfort on someone else! Besides, why would you want a gaggle of intruders hogging up your news feed?

Don’t Invite Folks To An Event If They’re Out-Of-Towners

Why would you bother to send out invites for folks to see you toot your horn at the local dive on the very same day of the gig, if they live in Alaska and you live in Vermont?

Don’t Post Anything That You’ll Live To Regret

Totally avoid posting pictures or status updates that will live in infamy. Words to live by…if you can’t write something with a Sharpie then don’t write it, the same concept applies to Facebook.
