How is Your FB Etiquette?
There is no official guide to Facebook etiquette. As a public platform that allows people to connect, users should always be sensitive. Yet, many go overboard,pick fights online, while some spook others.
Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO advises, “The social strength of Facebook makes it a fun medium to share conversations with friends. It is best to keep the fun aspect of this platform. As in any interaction, what countsis using one’s common sense, while being mindful that what you post can always be taken against you.” She shares the following tips:
1. Don’t be an addict. Steer clear of FB while working.
2. Think of your personal and professional reputation and those of others whenever posting messages and pictures. Think twice and ask yourself about the reaction these can elicit.
3. Do not overdo it. Posting every single activity can be annoying.
4. Don’t flaunt your possessions.
5. Share meaningful insights.
6. Don’t vent about work. News has a way of reaching those who you want to leave out of the equation.
7. Acknowledge posts and answer questions.Respond as well to those wholike your postings. When someone remains cold to you, it feels like facing a blank wall. This breeds indifference.
8. Do not engage in friend poaching, seeking those you do not know. You will come across as wanting to sell something or stalking. Conversely, do not accommodate people you do not know.
9. Send personal and sensitive messages privately.
10. Do not send chain e-mails that demand reposting on pain of dire consequences.
“Best of all, have a real life where you can take time out to meet and hug your friends,” adds Viesca
