Facebook Do's and Don't

Facebook has been around long enough that you should know what is cool to post and not to post. But some of us are still making tsome of these mistakes: According to the experts, here are a few things we should and should not be doing on Facebook!


Don’t post constantly -

Don’t sync Spotify - Unless you want your friends to see that you've been listening to Adam Lambert, don’t sync Spotify to your Facebook.

Don’t type in ALL CAPS - This is yelling online.

Do use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation -

Don’t talk politics - We live in a 53-47 split country. You can speak to the choir, but you will most likely get into fights. That takes the fun away from the site.


Don’t get caught in a lie - Don't tell someone on Facebook that you cannot go to a party, event or night out that they are having, only to go out with another group or person that uses the check-in feature on Facebook and tags you. You're caught!

Farmville will get you de-friended -

Don't upload and store risqué photos -

Don’t ‘Vague-book’ - This is where people leave incomplete statuses that simply beg for attention and questions from friends to find out what's happening. Examples: "Life is so hard sometimes..."

Don't post things about your children's teachers - It finds its way right back to the teacher.

Do think: What would a judge think? - Facebook posts are being used as evidence all of the time. So you should never say anything on Facebook that you wouldn't be happy discussing in front of a judge.

Don’t announce a death - Do not announce family tragedies or death before all of the immediate members are aware.

Don’t post photos of other people’s kids - Never post a picture of someone else's child without the parent's permission.

Don’t post boredom updates - One word answers are very seldom witty. Telling us you're tired, bored, sleepy, awake or excited is never going to set the world alight and just looks like you're trying to remind people you're still alive.

Don’t post song lyrics - I get it. You think you’re feeling exactly what Morrissey felt when he wrote “There Is A Light
That Never Goes Out,” but in fact, you’ve just had a bit too much to drink and you’re feeling a tad melancholy. Not. The. Same.
