Facebook Do’s

  • Do use a real picture in your Facebook profile and similarly use a real name, place and address while starting. This will help us to connect to our friends and family very easily. Also make sure you add details like School and college, this will let you find many lost friends on Facebook.
  • Do check each friend request carefully after visiting their profile. It is not necessary that they may be using their original pictures so try to find them from their profile also. Fake profiles is nothing new on Facebook and if you wish to create a safe Facebook profile, make sure to check new friend request carefully.
  • Do use privacy settings while building up photo albums. As there may be such snaps which you do not want to share publicly. Their it will be better to apply privacy settings and limit it to your circle only.
  • Do tag the photos after uploading to your FB profile. After doing this your friends will be aware about their snaps and secondly it will strengthen your bonding with friends.
  • Do be tolerant when you receive unknown friend requests or you may not recognizing him/her. It is not the time to waste on them so it will be better if you will hit ignore option.

    Great post on the dos and the don’t on Facebook. It is quite easy to get too emotional charge up and post sensitive remarks,only to regret later and its too late. One of the thing that I like to point up to my kids are that with great power comes great responsibility. One must think twice before posting on Facebook wall.
    Another problem with Facebook is that one can control privacy and restrictions of posts for friends but beyond that, there is no guarantee that friends security setting might be lacking so beyond your own account, any posts or information that gets into friends wall might become public.
    Last but not least, I don’t quite agree that we should put REAL name and contacts on the Facebook profile. I think we SHOULD not do so because of the various cyber crimes and dangers associated with online social media platforms.

    Mr.Stargaterich in my opinion everything in this world have its good and bad both effects and i also agreed to your reply as after publishing the real name and contact we may be a victim of cyber crime on the other side it will be easy for our friends to search us…
