I write this post knowing that I will seem hypocritical. I am going to tell you that it is crucial to keep your profile up-to-date, the irony comes into play when you look at the break between this post and my last Facebook Etiquette post. My bad blog etiquette aside, it is important to remain consistent with your Facebook presence.

I realize that not everyone visits Facebook multiple times per day, but it is important to respond to ‘wall posts, ‘messages’, and ‘invites’  in a timely fashion. If you do not respond to a ‘wall post’ with a ‘comment’ or a return ‘wall post’, it is considered rude. Often times messages do not require a response but when a message does, it is important to respond quickly. Responding to ‘event invites’ is always appreciated by the event organizers.

Updating your ‘status’ on a consistent basis is a great way of keeping your friends up-to-date on your life happenings. Today on Facebook, it is more common for one to ‘comment’ on a ‘status update’ rather than create an original ‘wall post’.

Checking Facebook often will also help you to keep up on who has a birthday coming up.
