If The Real World Was Like Facebook: A user-created photo contest created by Cracked.

Because “Facebook is full of behavior that would get you punched in the real world.”

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.

In this article some Facebook Etiquette Rules that people still forget are outlined. Please don’t forget them.

A summary of the faux pas: Pregnant cryptic private countdowns calling crazy awful colleagues instead of calling people you aren’t friends with, is application overload.

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.
