What You Should Never Post on Facebook

How much you hate your job

If you’re unhappy with your current job, it’s important to remember that venting online about your situation won’t do anything to improve it. In fact, posting negative comments about your job on Facebook (or any other social media platform) can actually make things worse.

First and foremost, complaining about your job on Facebook can damage your professional reputation. Even if you’re not using your real name or identifying information, it’s still possible for people to figure out who you are and where you work. And once that information gets out there, it’s hard to take back.

Additionally, posting negative comments about your job on Facebook can make you a target for retaliation from your employer. If they happen to see what you’ve written, they could decide to take disciplinary action against you – even if what you said wasn’t entirely true. So before you hit the “post” button, ask yourself whether it’s really worth the risk.

Finally, keep in mind that airing your grievances on social media is unlikely to result in any positive changes at your workplace. If anything, it will probably just make things more difficult for everyone involved. So instead of venting online, try talking to a trusted friend or family member about what’s going on – they might be able to offer some helpful advice or support.

Embarrassing pictures of other people

Regarding posting pictures of other people on Facebook, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, always ask for permission before posting any photos of someone else, especially if those photos could be considered embarrassing. If you don’t have permission and you post the photo anyway, the person in the photo may be able to report it and have it removed.

Additionally, try to avoid posting photos that could embarrass or humiliate someone else. This includes pictures that are unflattering, make fun of someone’s physical appearance, or show someone in a compromising or negative light. Remember that what may seem harmless to you could be hurtful to someone else, so it’s always best err on the side of caution.

If you do choose to post a photo of someone else on Facebook, make sure to include a caption that is respectful and positive. This will help ensure that the photo is seen in the best light possible and doesn’t end up offending anyone who views it.

Your birth year

There are a few different ways that someone could use your birth year to figure out who you are. For example, they could use it to find your profile on other social media sites, or they could use it to look up your public records.

Even if you trust the person who you’re sharing your birth year with, it’s still best to keep this information private. You never know who they might inadvertently share it with, and once it’s out there, it can be very difficult to get rid of.

So if you value your privacy, don’t post your birth year on Facebook (or anywhere else online). It’s just not worth the risk.

Strong political or religious opinions

If you do feel the need to share your political or religious views on Facebook, it is important to do so in a respectful and civil manner. Avoid attacking or belittling those who hold different opinions, and try to refrain from getting into heated arguments that could ruin relationships. Remember that not everyone will agree with you, but that doesn’t mean they’re bad people – it’s just a sign of healthy debate!

Curse words

You should not post curse words on Facebook. First, because it is a public site and there are many people of different ages who use it, including children. Second, because it shows a lack of respect for others and can be considered offensive. Finally, because it can reflect poorly on you and your business if you are associated with cursing.

Other people’s big news

If you’re not the one making the announcement, it’s generally considered poor form to post someone else’s big news on Facebook. This is especially true if the news is of a personal nature, like an engagement, pregnancy, or diagnosis. Not only is it a major breach of privacy, but it can also come across as insensitive or even rude. So unless you’re absolutely positive that the person in question wants their news plastered all over social media, it’s best to err on the side of caution and keep quiet.

Posts intended to make others envious

Whether you’re trying to make your ex jealous or simply bragging about your fabulous life, posts intended to make others envious are a major Facebook faux pas. Not only are they annoying, but they can also make people feel bad about themselves. If you want to show off your great life, do it in person or at least limit your boasting to a couple of close friends.
