When posting items to a friend’s ‘wall’ or sending a ‘message’, proper English still applies. I understand that writing a quick note on Facebook may not always be a professional piece of writing but please, use proper letter casing.

Writing a ‘message’ in all lower-case letters gives the reader the impression that you did not put very much time, or effort, into the ‘message’.

Writing in all capital letters creates a few issues. 1. A block of all capital letters is very difficult to read. 2. Capital letters denote excitement or anger. 3. Over-emphasis on an entire message annoys the reader.

Receiving too many ‘messages’ is annoying. Receiving messages that strain your eyes is downright frustrating.
