Not only does it let you connect with friends, but also keeps the humour factor up and going for curious onlookers. Most Facebook users inadvertently witness a lot of messaging and wall post mistakes and can vouch for the fact that people can get pretty stupid when it comes to posting online. Here are some hilarious examples:
1. Spelling Mistakes
One can understand your enthusiasm in expressing yourself, but spelling mistakes are unacceptable in every sense of the word. The hilarity ensues when friends try to post the rectified statements as comments. One can come across examples like “live like you were dieing” or “If i tld u whts on my mind id hv 2 kill u.” As if suffering the torments of Life isn’t enough, now one has to endure such tortures on cyberspace, as well.
2. Status Mistakes
Some people really should not use Facebook, mostly because their silly status updates put mankind to shame. The stupidity ranges from silly proclamations of failed love, to angsty announcements of the unfairness of life. People need to realise that even though Facebook gives you the liberty to personalise your content, every emotion need not be conveyed at all times. Freedom of speech does not account for wasting precious cyberspace with personal rants on insignificant subjects. Choose your status updates wisely!
3. Add Friends Wisely
The funniest thing to happen to a person would be to get caught badmouthing their bosses on a virtual platform. If you feel that you cannot control your urges to express how you feel about your superiors, then at least refrain from including them in your list of friends. This way, you’d be saving yourself from a lot of embarrassment. This holds true for your family as well. If you feel that your posted content might offend familial feelings, make appropriate privacy settings to stay safe from apprehension.
4. Too Many Photos
The most annoying thing to encounter on your news feed is the flurry of unnecessary pictures that one keeps posting or tagging. One can sympathise with your need to share your experiences with the world, but every experience need not be shared. Sometimes sharing your photos can land you in compromising situations with bosses or the family. So, you need to be very careful of what you upload on Facebook.
5. Relationship Updates
The tendency to update your relationship status every minute, along with graphic information of your personal life, is an uncomfortable prospect for your friends. You need to keep your tales of intimacy out of the public domain. Not only will this preserve your relationship, but will also help maintain your reputation.
Abstaining from making these mistakes will be a boon for any Facebook user. While such posts do well to entertain us, they are unacceptable in many ways. If people exercise some caution over what they disclose on Facebook, they will be saving themselves from losing face.
