6 Things Which You Shouldn't Do On Facebook

I dont need to explain why i am writing this post. Finally i thought, its time i write a post :-) Here are the top 10 things one shouldn't do on Facebook :-

1. Adding people you don't even know
It's one thing to add an old friend and then never speak to them. It's another to add anyone whose name you kind of vaguely sort of recognize. It's like that old man in the pub who slaps everyone on the back as if they were old pals, when in actual fact he has no friends, largely because of this habit.
2. Accepting friend invitations from people you don't know
It's one thing to complain about irritating people adding you on Facebook, but if you accept those invites, you've only got yourself to blame. If you scan through your Facebook friends list, you'll doubtless find a handful of people in there you barely know. It's a horrible realisation - like when you suddenly realize your hand is resting on a knob of someone else's chewing gum underneath a desk.
3 Inviting people for joining Game or polls
If people don't want to play game, why to force him/her? Allow some time to share only when the recipient agrees to play the game or sends out message to sent invitations.

4. Use Facebook mail instead of proper email
Are you silly? Why would one use FB mail rather than other mail clients?

5. Write on a wall instead of communicating privately
The driving force behind the success of Facebook is 'Unwanted Status'. Come on, for god sake, Facebook is not for writing smileys, greeting people on their wall, its much beyond that. Does it make sense when others are watching what people are doing? Status messages like "i am confused.." "I am delighted.." " i need peace"...certainly, Facebook is not for this type of status messages.Saying hello,hi..come on, this is not SMS pathway :-)

6. Update Facebook profile when you're supposedly ill
How many times have we seen it? Someone calls in sick in the morning and then updates their Facebook profile minute-by-minute throughout the day, documenting a day of ice cream, chips, video games and jumping on the bed.Seems like some storyline of illness movie.
