Hi. I’m Marla. Gimme a Minute. No really, I’m only going to take a minute of your time.
This is the third of four segments about Facebook etiquette. I want to talk to you about Facebook Posting Etiquette. I have already admitted I am a Facebook addict. Who better than I to point out what is rude and what is polite when it comes to Facebook posting? No one. So let’s get to it.
Posting is the act of commenting on a Facebook Friend’s wall, on a photo, or in response to their status update. Your comment can be seen by any friend of yours, and any friend of your friend. It would be in your best interest to not use this feature to invite friends for intimate dinners or parties, unless you have a big house and lots of serving plates.
It also means you need to be diplomatic in the substance of your comment. Don’t say something hurtful or insulting to another person. They might happen upon it and read it. Here is a completely hypothetical example. If I, or your friend, posted a photo of themselves with someone else, don’t remark in a posted comment for all the world to see, about how the other person looks like they had a nose job since you last saw them 25 years ago. Or something like that. Those comments are better saved for private messages. Mindy.
I’m Marla. Thanks for listening. See ya!
