Dear Rad Tattoo Getter,

Please wait until the gel, puss, blood, scrapes and scabs are gone before posting your macho tattoo pictures. Those of us who are afraid of needles might find them interesting if you can wait until that point.

Thanks,

Everyone

This is a true story. This actually happened to a friend of a friend.

When using a public computer, make sure you log out of Facebook before you leave. When you are on a Mac, make sure you actually ‘quit’ the application, don’t just close the internet browser. If this hit my Facebook ‘wall’ my grandma would be mortified to say the least.

If there is a baby in your Facebook ‘profile photo’, I will assume it is your baby. All of your ‘friends’ will too. We might stalk you for a few minutes to verify the facts and find out how pregnant you got.

My friend Kelly’s Gmail status: “Thank you, Facebook & TFLN for helping me see exactly how horrible 75% of the people in this country are at spelling.” She went on to say, “I am so irritated. I just want to say COME ON PEOPLE YOU WENT TO COLLEGE. Your vs. You’re is an elementary school distinction.”

This is one of my biggest pet peeves. Don’t get me wrong, I am not perfect when it comes to grammar, punctuation and spelling. That said, there are many things that people could catch if they just took 15 seconds to review what they have written. People have stopped taking the time to do this.

Below I am going to list a few common mistakes, after reading this post, please don’t make them.

  • Your vs. You’re
  • There vs. They’re vs. Their
  • To vs. Too vs. Two
  • It’s vs. Its
  • Neither/Nor vs. Either/Or

Pete Cashmore caught my attention on Mashable today with this article. The article describes the situation of “A Canadian woman [who] claims she lost her health benefits after her insurance company used her Facebook pictures as evidence that she was no longer depressed.”

I guess the key takeaways here are: 1. Facebook holds up in court, 2. Chippendales can pull a person out of depression.

The ‘reconnect’ feature recently added to Facebook (near the ‘friend suggestion’ on the ‘home page’) has received mixed reviews. However, I think this guy has the best take I’ve heard. I hadn’t realized the planning that the Facebook crew put into this brilliant new feature.

For the record, it is bad Facebook Etiquette to publicly bash people who Facebook ‘suggests’ you ‘friend’ or ‘reconnect with’. Enough said.


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.
