To that end, here are 12 types of Facebook posts you should avoid. After all, could you see yourself handing out any of this at a cocktail party?
1. Disturbing photos
Pictures of starving babies, burned dogs, and people with horrible disfigurements are in poor taste and are very upsetting to some people. We know there is usually a very good cause involved, but use some discretion.
2. Hard sales
Not everyone is in the market for expensive make-up or real estate. Share something the whole class can enjoy.
3. Guilt trips
“Make this your status for an hour or else you were a) not raised right or b) don’t care about babies with cancer” just makes people feel bad. The modern version of a chain letter doesn’t help the cause.
This is like forcing people to play charades when they hate parlor games. Ask them first if they like games and whether they will mind the hacks, spams and viruses that come with some of them.
5. Urban myths
Before posting that eating pomegranate seeds will cause your kneecaps to burst, run it through Snopes.
Don’t assume everyone shares your faith. There are places people can go for fellowship and like-minded praise and worship: actual buildings and private Facebook groups.
