In Part 1 of this series, I described the basic Rules of Engagement when interacting with people on Facebook. Some people generally say wassup, some people want to holla, some it’s all of the above. I wanted to give tips on how to exemplify proper social networking etiquette on that site. Now, I want to say what personally upsets me about people’s movements on Facebook and see if you feel the same way. As always, I’m goin in…and I plan to return without a scratch on me!
I have the right to not logon to Facebook and see 100000000000000000 messages from the SAME person about a party 10 weeks in advance! I have no problem with event promotion (I do it myself), but there’s certain rules of etiquette that you pseudo event planners need to understand. When you put our names on events, we usually don’t decline because you and your promoter friends flood our inbox with events, group requests, zombies, werewolves, knights, lions, tigers, AND BEARS!!!….and we can’t tell the difference. We often miss events from people whose events we actually WANT to attend! You send an event notification about a month prior and hit us WEEKLY. That’s respectable. Not everyday, 3 times a day. When facebook inboxes have the same amount of new messages as my gmail account, it’s a serious issue. I will block any and all people who facebook spam my account. You have been warned!
I have the right to browse facebook without threat or harm from electronic thugs. You know this all too well. The people who subliminally diss in status messages, wall posts, and Honesty Boxes. The dudes who post your pictures on Funny ______________ groups and don’t have sh*t to say when you confront them face to face. The people who talk tough behind the keyboard, and give bloggers like yours truly a bad name? Yup, you are a Facebook Thug. One of the CORNIEST whack kids in all the land. Real recognize real, and right about now, your picture might as well be on milk cartons because we can’t call it. I’ve always lived by the rule that you should never say on the net what you won’t say to a person’s face. The internet has been the biggest technological achievement of my generation, yet in its dynamic splendor, it’s given way to an age of salad ass nikkas and e-thugs thinking that they have an S on their chest. You were the kid in high school who no one knew and who tried to build a different image in college…but failed, lol. on behalf of the millions….(AND Millions (c) The Rock) of Facebook users, b e z, delete your account, and fall back!
These are just a couple of things that upset me about facebook. Everything else can be regulated well. I leave the rest for you to fill in? Anything about facebook or its members that get you heated? What about myspace and these other sites. SPEAK on it!
