Have you ever wondered who to add as a friend on Facebook? What your status should be? What pictures you should upload? Who you should talk to? Well, you have come to the right place; Here you will get all the information you need on how to develop some Facebook etiquette.
The first thing you should know is who you are adding as a friend on Facebook. Some people don’t really care and add whoever they get a friend request from. But there are others who restrict themselves to the people they know in real life and that is how it should be. You shouldn’t be adding people you don’t know because they could just be stalkers. Also, don’t feel the urge to compete with others in terms of how many friends you have added on Facebook, because it’s your life and you should always know who you are adding. In summary, know who you are adding so you don’t get stalked.
The second point is to be careful about what you are updating your status to. You shouldn’t just be sitting on Facebook all day and telling the whole world things like what you just ate, when you’re going to take a shower, when you’re leaving the house, and what the weather is outside because it gets irritating. So before you update your status, think twice before doing it.
The third tip is don’t upload every single picture of yourself. Nobody wants to see 50 pictures of you holding a camera and standing in your washroom making funny faces, because it is pointless. All we need are a few pictures of you to see who you are and that is it. Don’t overdo it and make it look like you have nothing else to do. Keep the pictures at a minimum if you have the need to upload them.
The fourth thing is don’t poke anyone if you’re not in elementary school, because no one does it anymore.
The fifth and final issue is starting a fight with a friend or breaking up with someone over Facebook. You absolutely shouldn’t do this. This just makes it look like you are too scared to confront the person and don’t have to confidence to tell the individual face to face what your issue is with them.
There are many rules that you should follow on Facebook, but these five points will make your experience and everyone’s time on Facebook better.
