SOCIAL MEDIA IS AS PEOPLE DO…
It comes as no surprise that social media sites has changed the dynamics of inter-personal communication for better and worse. Facebook, amongst the most popular social networking sites, has successfully brought people together just as much as it has personified tearing people apart. Instagram, another form of social media which apparently deeply contributes to people’s level of self-esteem and worth has been known to bring out the absolute worst in people. I mean, there is no limit to what people will post. All for what? You guessed it…a ‘like’.
Both on and off-line, people have the freedom of speech and expression just as much as they have the luxury to respect themselves as well as others. These days, social networking sites have become an open ground for foolery, shenanigans, and extreme ratchetness. And even in moments that warrant no-nonsense, we often see condescending social habits that make you wonder, “Where they do that at?”.
5 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER POST
NO ONE needs to know your personal business except you. When you post your personal business to the social wilderness, not only does your business becomes everyone else’s it also leaves you open to unwanted comments and it warrants a gossiping trail that will follow you both on and off-line.
Negative Comments on Your Employer
Although social networking sites have made us feel “secure” with privacy settings there is a golden rule that applies in all situations, “Never bite the hand that feeds you”. It’s an embarrassing thing to get called into the “Executive” office for expressing disdain of your employer’s ill practices and unless your financially prepared to forfeit your salary as a result of “bad talking’ your employer, you should probably avoid posting anything negative about your employer AND co-workers all times.
We’re totally aware, there’s nothing like having your cake and eating it too. But if you’re in a relationship and it’s NOT open…You should definitely re-consider posting photos of you and your side-beau.
Assaulting a person’s character online is by far the most spineless crime a person can commit. If you have an issue with someone, no one needs to know just how much you think that person was a waste of one good night, and nine months of pain. Address your issues the respectable way, by either talking it out- person to person, and or moving forward with your life minus the online social attacks.
Inappropriate photos are better known as thirst traps. These would be photos that should be shared exclusively between you and the person you go to bed with at night. Although Mom may have stopped telling you what’s appropriate and what’s not. It’s important to understand…there is a time and place for everything. Unless, your posting semi-nude or plain ole’ nude pics to a dating profile or some site relative to XXX everyone is asking themselves “Why would she post THAT photo on Facebook? ” No person in their right mind is going to take you seriously on any level when posting thirst traps to social media.
WHERE THEY DO THAT AT??
While there are so many circumstances that can be applied to what NOT to post, there are a few other circumstances that deserve just as much consideration. As much as we get the Facebook “Like” button we’re kind of unsure of the intentions in it’s use.
WHY DO PEOPLE ‘LIKE’ THE MOST ALARMING POSTS ON FACEBOOK??
Nobody really likes funerals, so the fact that someone would actually “Like” it on Facebook is a little absurd.
Being terminated or laid-off has got to be one of the most challenging events to cope with especially when its unexpected. Is it really worth a “like”?
Repetitive Relationship Status Changes
For most, our relationship status can be as refreshing as it is depressing. But is a relationship status change really worthy of a “Like” when the person who posts it rotates single, engaged, and married every other month?
