Facebook Etiquette for Grown-ups - 10 things you should know...

You learn something new everyday. I learnt 10 new things about Facebook recently.

Here's a list of Facebook Do's and Don'ts from a teenager's perspective.

  1. Never 'like' your own status updates
  2. Don't 'like' everything on everybody's page. Be selective.
  3. Don't comment on every picture on someone's album. Comment on a few only. 
  4. Don't feel compelled to respond to every comment in your album / on your wall. 
  5. Never comment immediately after someone has commented on your wall / picture. Wait at least 10 minutes, so it looks like you have a life! 
  6. Never comment or 'like' anything on your child's page. It is a privilege for you to be her friend on Facebook. Don't blow it! 
  7. If you happen to be a friend with your teenager's friend (not encouraged, but it happens sometimes), never 'like' or comment on the friend's page. 
  8. If you have less than 50 friends on Facebook, then you don't need Facebook to keep up with them. Stick to emails / telephone calls / letters or postcards instead. That's likely going to be easier for you to manage. 
  9. Don't be caught on Facebook all the time! 
  10. Never be on Facebook on your birthday, Friday night or Saturday night. It shows that you don't have a social life!  
Yay or Nay - what do you think?

  1. I really don't have a social life, but I'm also too old to care!
