1. “Today I woke up and had Breakfast :-)”
While small daily routines may have been of interest to you, your 150+ friends may not be interested to have that come up on their feed. Chances are they had breakfast too…
2. Negative comments about work
You may have had a bad day, but unless you plan on quitting your job tomorrow, you may want to avoid posting negative comments about your boss or work online. Remember online means its out there, and its easy for it to get back to your employer (or should we say ex-employer)
3. Be cautious of “Party hard” pictures
We all like to post pictures of the good times we had, but remember Facebook is your reputation online and unless you want that to be an image of how you are portrayed, you may want to hold back those pictures of you doing body shots on spring break.
4. Countdown to your vacation
While you might be excited about your upcoming vacation and happy to brag about it online, you may want to be careful about posting that your away. Criminals look at these as opportunities to take advantage of an empty home. This came to light with sites such as robme.com which posted statuses of people who have publicly posted online that they are away from their homes.
5. Relationship dramas
We all do it. Get upset about our relationships and post all about it on facebook, but unless you plan on severing ties with that person forever, you may want to be selective in the words you use. If (when) that relationship is back to normal, you can’t take back the post that everyone has seen.
