Are you a reckless poker? Do you invite everyone to everything? Are you guilty of over-commenting? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might just be issued a social media citation.
Here are some major social media faux pas’ that I’ve encountered a lot over the last few months.
Now, we’re talking about over-sharing, over-commenting, over-posting, over-Tweeting, over-anything really.
Or, perhaps you’ve been on the receiving end of one too many unwanted virtual gifts? Annoying? Yes, if you aren’t guilty of participating in annoying games such as Cafe Restaurant yourself (but preparing dishes can be oh so much fun!).
Obviously, we’re also referring to excessive poking? Getting one poke every so often reminds us that friends, family and the occasional weirdo is thinking about us, but to inundate someone with a barrage of pokes is kind of creepy.
The moral of the story is: poke with caution. Yes, think before you poke. Better safe than sorry, right?
We know that you think you’re fabulous? Heck, we might agree with you, but we don’t need to be reminded of this on an hourly basis.
Case in point: we don’t care about your ‘OMG, you seriously told all your Facebook friends about this yawner status’ update. Just because you care doesn’t mean we should. Show some restraint!
Is that profile picture of you in a speedo flexing your six-pack really necessary? There’s a lot to be said about leaving something to the imagination.
Also, do us all a favour and spread out some of those self-congratulatory posts and self-indulgent quizzes. Sometimes less is more.
Sometimes we are physically pained by your lack of cultural sensitivity, tagging unflattering photos of us and your use of excessive vulgarity.
You’re the party-pooper. Really, you’ve ruined the experience for the rest of us! So don’t acted shocked at any resulting defriending(s) and/or unfollowing(s) after such a ghastly foul-up.
Don’t fret, find solace in the fact that most of us have probably been guilty of one or more of these social media citations at one point or another. You’re not alone.
Care to add to this list? What indiscretions are you or your peeps guilty of in the world of social media?
