IN this age of technology where the use of social media has been exploding, it is no longer a tedious task to get information or the latest juicy gossip. And sharing details about your life, your kids and your achievements are as easy as the click of a button, and the more likes you get, often the more tempting it is to share more and more.
But there are certain things those on the outside could do without seeing you share on Facebook.
Yes, you guys love each other even though you may have only been together for three days; yes, he cooked you spaghetti, but hardly anyone wants to know, trust us.
Here are a few other things we don't want to see you share on Facebook.
1. For starters, no one wants to see pictures of you and your beau in bed. Those things should be confidential in a relationship. An act of commitment doesn't need to be proved by pictures in bed, even if you are shielded by the covers of your sheets. Worse is, when they are accompanied by ridiculous hashtags like #teamtogetherforver #mybaby and #lethatershate.
2. Constant status updates to warn off your matey is a no-no. Ladies, if you have to stoop that low it simply means your relationship is headed off a steep cliff if it has not already gone over. Raise your standards and move on, there are better men out there. Open your eyes.
3. Don't post photos of the wedding on the same day of the wedding. How can you find time during or immediately after your wedding to upload photos to Facebook? Is the act of changing your status from 'engaged' to 'married' so important that you have to make time on the wedding day for the updates?
4. Having an openly intimate conversation with your mate on the site is not only irritating, but very careless. Don't post a message to your partner's wall and continue to have the conversation there about how much you love each other, or about your fight last night.
5. Doing a break-up video and pasting it to her Facebook wall is beyond corny. What happened to an e-mail, a phone call or doing it in person?
6. Sharing relationship quotes from Relationship World, clogging up other people's newsfeed, and then tagging your baby, just no.
7. Don't share updates on you and your partner's current location. Yes, you may be the most loving couple on Facebook but we don't need to see that you both are out shopping for lingerie or that you've both just checked into a nudist camp.
8. Don't post screenshots of text messages. Just because you guys are having a lovely convo via text message doesn't mean we have to be involved.
9. Bragging about your significant other is like Photoshop -- you're just doing too much. We don't care. Putting the spotlight on your girlfriend or boyfriend makes everyone gag.
10. Discussing what your significant other has done wrong to you on Facebook is one thing we don't want to see going up and down our timelines and swarming our newsfeeds. When other persons know that your home is not a happy home they will bring it down.
