Social Network sites are a part of our world, and it doesn’t look like that is going to be changing anytime soon. I’ve often heard people say things like, “Ah, I hate Facebook,there seems to be a collected IQ of about 15 on there.” Facebook, along with everything in life, has certain rules that you need to first understand in order to achieve the maximum potential of the website. The problem with the internet is that this etiquette isn’t written anywhere, so any individual can waltz on in and bugger everything up. Here arethree simple steps to follow to help Facebook become a happier place.
The hashtag feature that recently knocked on Facebook’s door had many people up in arms. This is a perfect example of a brilliant feature that has been misused to such an extent that it is seen as something only hipsters or people who struggle to count all the way to ten make use of. If you’re one of those people that find it necessary to #hashtag #every #single #word, your hashtag privileges should definitely be revoked by the internet police.
Here is how the powerful feature should be used. Say something big happened in the news and you want to find out the latest information regarding this event, you can easily search for the relating hashtag. Now the power is in your hands. You have the opportunity to share your thoughts as well as read the views of others (even if you don’t know them personally). Words like “happy”, “purple”, “bff” and “lol” do not count as appropriate tags!
Now that heading doesn’t look very professional, does it? Facebook isn’t a substitute for your diary,everything you post has the potential to be read by anyone. It is human nature to judge someone based on their language use. I’m not saying that every person needs a doctorate in English before they can post a status, all I am saying is that for your sake, and the sake of others, take a second glance at that status before clicking “post”.

If this was email, these types of posts would go directly to spam without even passing go. I hate to be the one to tell you this, but there is no doctor sitting somewhere with a sick child on his table waiting for a post to reach a certain amount of likes before beginning to operate.Unfortunately there is a very slim chance that you will be awarded a cash prize by sharing some random post. If you hope to win big by simply clicking, I think you may have mistaken Facebook for some uk mobile casino.
Follow these few easy steps and before you know it, the land of Facebook may become a more bearable place for you and everyone else. With that said, if you don’t share this article, a three headed monster named Carl will sneak through your window tonight and nibble off your toes.
