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.

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.

Has Facebook communication changed for the worse? This blogger has a few thoughts.

I agree with a couple of these statements. It is pretty strange that one cannot view their most recent ‘status update’ on the ‘home’ page,  I had never realized that. I do feel that more, and different, people comment on my ‘status updates’. Since the most recent changes people still made old fashioned, more personal, posts on my ‘wall’ and I miss that.

A couple of the issues this blogger was having have been remedied. There are a lot of filtering options for the ‘newsfeed’, which I appreciate. The column on the right side has more consistent updates that contain an entertaining variety of highlights.

Facebook is a social networking site that was created in 2004. The original version of Facebook was very basic, one ‘friend’ could accidentally delete your entire ‘wall’ (yes, I’m still a little salty, Evelyn). Originally only college students were allowed to create a Facebook page and now anyone over the age of 13 can create a page. Facebook has evolved into a place for networking, rekindling and marketing.

Etiquette, as sited on Wikipedia, “is a code of behavior that influences expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group.” It is clear that many Facebook users lack Facebook Etiquette and we need to put an end to these annoying antics.

It is my hope that after reading this blog (and referring it to your ‘friends’) your ‘wall’, ‘home page’ and ‘inbox’ will be less cluttered and you will be Facebook stress-free.
