Social network etiquettes

Why are you shaking your behind on social media? Putting up videos of you (or anyone else) on youtube or instagram is stupid. Stop bothering your head on why decent men are on your lane. Being a lady would suit you. Remove such videos. You can have fun with your friends but you shouldn't have it on film, at all. Haven't you left from others' scandals. Wait till you want to contest an election or have a big opportunity/position open before you.

Please spell correctly. You're a graduate and you write "pretty" as "pwetty" or "Hardeyfunkeh" instead of "Adefunke." If I were employing, I would go on social networks and see what kind of updates, photos and videos posted by the potentials. It gives me an insight into your person.

You don't have to have a job before you carry yourself respectably and professionally. Why is your profile name Baddest babe ever liveth or Davido's bitch. You come across as not just thirsty but as severely dehydrated.

Don't be rude. No tweet fights. Thank you.

No flirting. No talking about sex, with random people, on the internet. Stop gushing about boys. I know the brothers are fine but refuse to be thirsty. There is a difference between "Michael Ealy is so cute" and "Michael Ealy shirtless is so yummy", "So many things I can do to you Boris Kodjo."

If you put out your business on facebook, please do not be offended when people mind your business for you. You sure did invite them. Eat it, drink it but don't post it. Stop the fad of posting photos of your "expensive" meals. It is none of our business. If we talk, you'll say we're not minding our business. I see people posting their location on facebook and instagram. I don't think you should put your business out like that.

It's not avenue for you to brag or show off your possessions. Why are you showing us your new wristwatch, car or bag. It's hermes so what? That's rather shabby. Ladies don't brag or show off. Quick example: Genevieve Nnaji posts a photo of herself in denim, chiffon blouse, pandora hat, simple jewelry and a nice pair of boots and captions it "Have a great day lovers." The love of my life, Linda Ikeji may put up a nice photo and caption it "Funmi hair, Rolex watch, Versace camisole, Armani blazer, Carolina Herrera skirt and Christian Louboutin shoes." I think Linda's caption is very unnecessary and Genevieve's look may even be more expensive than her's. Big people are allergic to noise, they can't shout. "Ti esu eni ba ta, a maa fowo bo je ni." Enjoy the fruits of your hardwork but with sense.

You take one nice photo and you tag the world. It's really not nice flooding my notifications with likes and comments from your photo. Kindly untag me now. Thanks.

Stop pretending to be CNN, TMZ and LIB. Don't flood our TL with news, we know where to find them if we want too.

Don't portray yourself to be who you're not. Don't be intimidated by people on there. Shine your eyes,  most of the "lives" on there are unreal.

Thou shalt not be a bully.

Thanks for reading beautiful one. Let's get talking, please do follow me on twitter @tara_bauer and on instagram @tarabauer_

Which are you more concerned about, reality or social networks?

Different strokes for different folks they say. I see some of these things on social media and move past it, some other people might like that they do what they do, while some of us don't. I do not advise or speak foul of people who do. But for people who act all rugged, bitchy, classless or what have you, I have no words. My two cents.

Ok.... i'm not a fan of flaunting material things on social networks but that seems to b d trend these days. What happened to d old ways of just taking a good pix & posting it without silly #s. We don't wanna know if it's Givenchy, hublot, rolex, we can see so let us be the judge cos many times those stuffs u flaunt are FAKES.
