Facebook Etiquettes(Ftiquettes!): For those who think netiquettes don’t exist

Well,well those who still believe that social media is just a virtual world and it doesn’t matter are seriously deceiving themselves. Facebook has exploded into existence and continuously evolving. These days it acts as a virtual data base of millions of people across the globe. I have seen best friends turning foe over an status update and strangers turning into soul mates! Gone are the days when you had to turn to T.V or newspapers for marketing or connecting people,now is the time of Facebook,Twitter or Instagram where marketing is just about few tweets or updates.

So,you see its not like you are free to post anything as your hiding behind your computer or fondling with your smart phone! Just like you have an image in your neighborhood similarly it creates an online image which actually reflects your entire upbringing.
So Ftiquettes are very important part of Netiquettes.You gotta learn it! Sooner you know the rules better your chances of crowning ‘The popular’ tag. So here I present all about Ftiquettes.

1) FRIENDING/UNFRIENDING
You can’t push anyone.It’s their decision. (respect it!)

2) TAGGING
Don’t tag anyone without their approval.Not everyone is cool about posting their just out of bed pictures on social media.And if anybody untags himself,don’t just tag him again (have some common sense!)

24)  LOOKING FOR LOVE

Yes, few people keep looking for love all across this virtual world and keep sending requests (sometimes the girl/guy even die laughing or by a mental breakdown by the stunts  these stupid people perform). Dudes seriously, go get a life!

Don’t be bogged down by these Ftiquettes. It’s same as applying your offline social rules to your Facebook interactions. Just use your common sense and be aware that not everyone is honest on Facebook. Use Facebook to maintain your relationships not break it.

So,Happy Facebooking!
