10 Things You’re Doing Wrong On Social Media

In this lovely world of social media where our entire lives are on display, it can be really hard to remember real-life etiquette. Just because we’re living permanently connected to the interwebs doesn’t mean social cues fly out the window. I feel like everyone thinks the internet is this magical land where there’s no order. It doesn’t work that way, you guys!

Behind the silly usernames, memes and selfies, there are still rules that apply, just like in the real world. And you should be following them because your social media profiles reflect a lot about you whether it’s to your peers, parents or future employers.

Here are 10 things you’re doing wrong on social media:

    Oh my god, thank you so much for mentioning some of these! The using your Facebook as a diary, the hashtags, and the spelling/grammar are my biggest Facebook pet peeves. I especially hated it when people used hashtags on Facebook before they actually did anything! It was like… no… stop. This is not Twitter or Tumblr. Oh, and the poking. I HATE the poking. I always ignore all the ones I get and I HATE that Facebook doesn’t let you disable it. It should be treated just like any other app, and you should be able to turn it off if you don’t want it.
