Facebook is a great tool for keeping in touch with family and friends or promoting your business. Unfortunately, some people use Facebook for all the wrong reasons. Here are 5 things that you should never share on Facebook.
You and your significant other are fighting over some petty nonsense. Going back and forth online posting your intimate details of the fight you had last night is really unnecessary. Please just keep it behind closed doors where it belongs. No one wants or needs to know the nasty details.
The people who have the time to brag on Facebook about having the "best boyfriend in the world" are probably thisclose to breaking up. If you cannot see that you are making a huge fool of yourself by bragging about your relationship that your close friends know is a joke, you should be spending your time looking for a good therapist not trying to convince the world of your wonderful life.
Pushing Your Religious or Political Views
"Press like if Jesus is your Savior". Why? Is it really your business? If I don't are you going to unfriend me? Many people do not go on Facebook to push their religion or their political views. This is one thing about Facebook that becomes very annoying. I respect anyone who has strong feelings about their personal religious values and political ties but I do not need to share mine by pressing "like". Again, this feels like junior high behavior.
Many parents use Facebook and it is their personal right to not have to explain subject matter to their children that is mature in nature. If you are into bondage (for example) and decide to post pictures of it, many people who do not share your "passion" will delete you because they do not want to look at disturbing images that you post.
Minding Your Own Business
The way that Facebook works, often there are comments made by friends of friends and these are people you do not know. Avoid the urge to comment about something off-hand that they say, you do not know if it is just their "odd" sense of humor or they are just a mean-spirited jerk. Don't engage in commenting when it could lead to a verbal war that you won't win. Control your fingers!
Facebook is a valuable way to stay connected but if you abuse it, you will find your friends list shrink. Consider what annoys you and try to think how your status updates may annoy others. Honorable mention (and almost forgotten) posting or tagging your friends in unflattering pictures is wrong!!! Please think twice before engaging in this kind of behavior. Take other peoples feelings into consideration.
Good points. I've gotten into debates about separation of church and state or supporting the military on Facebook. Later I've wondered what I thought I was doing. Obviously no one is going to change their opinion after such a flurry of comments.
