1. Tagging party pictures
This goes back to your image. You are creating it. Do you really want prospective clients and employers to see you partying? Do you want them to see you upside-down in front of a keg of beer, dressed like a pirate?
2. Inappropriate pictures
We already know that you can’t get 1,000 Facebook friends based on personality alone… but take those XXX pictures somewhere else. Like Myspace.
If your status updates look like this ☞ [*&^%$#@#$%^&*(*&^%$#$%^&] you probably shouldn’t be posting it. Plus, it kind of looks like you fell asleep on top of the computer keyboard while stalking your friends’ profiles at 3 AM.
Where do I begin… Don’t begin a DEFCON 5 fight with your friends on Facebook. Or your family on Facebook. Or start hurling out insults to a complete stranger. Actually, don’t start fights with anyone.
I can’t believe that I even have to mention this one, but especially to those who like to kick it up a notch and post pictures while breaking the law, this one’s for you! Don’t post pictures of your dog smoking out of a bong or pictures of your sleeping baby with a gun on her lap. And please, no aerial shots of your coffee table that looks as if Walgreens pharmacy moved in and set up shop in your living room. All you need to remember are two words.
You should restrain from airing your whoa is me campaign on your wall for all the world to see; you are not a Kardashian… Right? To quote the Mafia: Omertà. If you must tell the world all about your 51/50 style life, at least send us a message of where and when so that we have an adequate amount of time to grab some Milk-duds and popcorn.
