Sometimes you don’t have good cell service to complete a call but your spotty service can send a ‘status update’. In this case, a status update assisted in saving lives. This proves that people do care about and read status updates. Disclaimer, when possible, calling 911 is a better idea than updating your Facebook ‘status’.
On family road trips chaos always ensued. Do you remember the “I’m not touching you” game? Let me refresh your memory, without actually making physical contact, one sibling makes a poking motion as close to another sibling as possible. If you’re on the receiving end, this game is annoying. This game is the live version of Facebook ‘poking’.
Facebook ‘poking’ is a strange phenomenon. The biggest issue with poking is that different people perceive it to mean different things, including but not limited to: joking, flirting or just saying hello. Personally, I would prefer for one to just make an actual joke, actually flirt (preferably in person) or actually say hello. This would avoid the drama of debating if I am going to ‘poke back’ or ‘remove’ the poke.
Also, if someone has a restraining order against you, I wouldn’t poke that person. Need a reason? Read this article.
People are always in a hurry and they want information quickly. Sites that provide a quick laugh are on the rise. Sites that achieve this goal are: FML (F##k My Life), Fail, MLIA (My Life Is Average), TFLN (Texts From Last Night) & AFP (Awkward Family Photos). Lamebook has joined this group of quickies to point out the faux pas people commit on the Facebook.
I suggest you visit the Lamebook the next time you get annoyed with poor Facebook Etiquette, it will make you feel better to know that you’re not the only one left with common sense.
Social Media is not a fad. This video has the facts to prove it.
If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. Do not make rude ‘comments’ on Facebook. It isolates people, hurts feelings and ruins fun.
What do I mean by rude comments? Here is the scenario: If you ‘comment on a ‘photo’, a ‘note’ or an individual’s ‘post’, even if you are ‘tagged’, you relinquish your right to make negative comments. Examples include but are not limited to: “I’m sorry you (referring to others involved in the posting) had to witness this”, “You are blowing up my inbox”, “Take it to a wall”. You get the point.
At any given time one can ‘untag’, delete their ‘comment’ or ‘unlike’. While I personally think doing any of those three things is unsportsmanlike, it is bad etiquette to make a rude comment.
