Everyone just wants to belong, right? In the online aspect of our lives, Facebook offers us that virtual sense of belonging. Studies claim that Facebook meets two basic social needs: (1) the need to belong and (2) the need for self-presentation. Self-esteem and self-worth are associated closely with the first basic social need, to belong.
Everyone has a reason to use Facebook and no one need to be taught how to manage it. But there are a few things that you should avoid posting about on Facebook, just to stay on the safe side.
Here are a few things that you should avoid doing on facebook:
1.Posts that may turn out to be offensive
This may be unintentional but there can be consequences however minor it may appear to be. Even a good joke from your part may not be interpreted as such by everyone. While it might seem funny at the time, and could get a few laughs from the friends you’re out on the town with, it’s not worth the risk of offending family members, friends, or even that boss that you forgot you friended. This is unavoidable at times but it can be reduced to a reasonable extent
2.Posting other people’s news
When you post things that happen to other people may it be a close friend or a relative make sure they are good with it. Better said posting other people’s news must be avoided, your best friend’s engagement, a cousin’s pregnancy, or your little brother’s acceptance to the college of his dreams, don’t be the first to announce other people’s big news on Facebook. They may be waiting for an appropriate time to post it or may have their reasons for not announcing it publically, so avoid taking control of someone’s news.
