There are several ways you can get de-friended from Facebook. If you are tempted to start a sentence with, “I swear, I never forward this kind of stuff, but I couldn’t pass this one up…” Don’t. Don’t finish the sentence. Go with your first inclination of not forwarding. Procrastinate, and go eat a cake donut instead. Nobody, and I mean Keep reading!
Stop humble-bragging on facebook There is a fine line between genuine self-deprication and feigned humility. If you really hated how you looked in a bikini, you wouldn’t post five selfies on Facebook wearing a swimsuit. I’m sure it really is stressful trying to figure out how to work all the gadgets in your new Lexus, but stuff it. It IS Keep reading!
Stop Facebook posting instead of living Some mundane status updates are post-worthy. When your kid tells you you’re the worst mom ever after you drop their newly purchased ice cream on the sidewalk, for instance.

My feet smell. I have gas. I laid on the couch all day yesterday. I’m still lying on the couch. Keep reading!
Whiners on Facebook First of all, let me acknowledge the hypocrisy of me complaining about complainers. I understand the risks I’m taking by calling these folks out. “Gawd.

I hate Vague-booking most of all Ever since middle-aged people who actually liked Hall & Oats made Facebook uncool by knowing about it, people have been abusing their Facebook power. With power comes responsibility. Each of us is no doubt guilty of committing a social media infraction on occasion, but that doesn’t excuse it. Social media is yet another medium Keep reading!
Have you noticed the phenomenon of people grieving on Facebook? It should come as no surprise, in so much as facebook is arguably an extension, or alternate electronic universe of real life. Although it isn’t. I am hardly one to knock how anyone else processes life or death, but I must admit I am a little perplexed sometimes by the Keep reading!
Stop posting in Facebook! Facebook spoils surprises! In addition to meeting up with my six college friends, I spent the first two days of my trip with two other friends who flew in from San Francisco to help me surprise the rest.

Why do people like common items on Facebook? Is my life enhanced because I liked potato chips on Facebook? What have lay’s potato chips really done for you during your lifetime?

Social Media: Doggonit, People like you! My sister would never have a facebook page or tweet or God forbid, blog. I understand her reticence. We all feel judged on Facebook. I understand these things can be used against you in a court of law and/or become part of your permanent record or hurt people’s feelings or alienate people who love Keep reading!
