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.
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.
