(1)ANYTHING THAT YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR MINDABOUT
Before you post ask yourself the following
Would I be willing to show these pictures on the
front page of vanguard newspaper?
Am I being too degrading?
What would my future or current employer think
about this post?
Do I currently owe money? (No better way to find a
person who has dipped out on their bills by seeing
their facebook status!).
Do I understand what “web cache” means?
A folder full of Web pages in the user’s computer
that is maintained by the Web browser for a period
of time. If the local, cached page has not been
updated on the Web, it is retrieved immediately by
the browser, saving download time.
We know you want to show off your life but do us
all a favor and leave the following details OUT of
Your sex life (OR PROBABLY LACK OF…)
When you are planning to have children
The overbearing make-out pictures
When your last menstrual cycle was?
How big or small “anything” is
Bowel movements…”Why do I have to keep
mentioning this one ?? Any guesses?”
Your ridiculously long store purchases…. ??
ALONG WITH THE fake PRICE??!
Anything that should remain underneath your
Ummm….your relationship “intimate” details…
Many relationships fail because people do not
understand to keep certain things between TWO
NEVER DO THE FOLLOWING!
Post pictures of the actual funeral
Post pictures of the currently deceased member on
Ask yourself how are you honoring someone by
posting images of them in a coffin so the entire
world can view it.
Having an open casket funeral is fine for those who
agree with it. Sharing those intimate photos…ARE
Would you rather someone post a picture of you as
the person you were, or in a coffin?
To honor you currently deceased loved one, find a
picture that reveals who they were when they were
alive. The last picture people see is the most
DO IT TO HONOR THEM….
(4)YOUR CHILD’S PICTURE….WITH THEIR NAME
This is a child safety issue. Everyone is guilty of
wanting to show off their family members, but
doing this with your children is just NOT SAFE!
There are predators everywhere who will not only
know what your child looks like, but their name,
age, location and EVERYTHING YOU POST ABOUT
Most predators are people you know or someone
you have seen before.
The average person has facebook friends they
never speak to, but they continue to post their
child’s entire life history…EVERYWHERE!
Just because you are posting pictures for your
only your facebook friend to see, does not mean
they have privacy settings similar to yours.
Children are very gullible. All it takes is for an
individual to come up to your child, call them by
name and gain their trust by telling them
EVERYTHING YOU POSTED!
Remember me? You are so cute! All grown up!
Wait…you don’t remember me, do you?
Well, I can never forget a pretty face like yours.
You mother Helen and I work together. She talks
about you all the time. I know you love fudge and
your favorite color is yellow! How about you jump
in my truck for a bit! Your mom says it’s okay,
She sent me here because she was going to be
running a bit late. Don’t Worry……..”
FOR CHILD SAFETY TIPS
Start personalizing who you send your child’s
It is easier to track down who you have given your
pictures to, if you minimize.
Never post your child’s name, age, date of birth,
and where they attend school.
Talk to your kids about strangers….everybody is
NOT your friend and NOT their friend.
Put your child’s safety above your ego!
We live in Nigeria, so we should be able to say
whatever we want!!! Right??”
You are allowed to post and say whatever you
desire, but always remember that someone is
watching what you post.
There is an appropriate time and place for
everything; posting highly degrading material may
sabotage you in the long run. If you start posting
signs about how much you hate fat, ugly, stupid,
black, white, Asian…etc…there is a 100% chance
that those messages will fall in the wrong hands.
Vital relationships can be severed by posting
degrading material. We all come to the point in our
lives where we need help. There is no quicker way
to burn bridges than to post hate statements about
the characteristics of other people.
CONSTANT NEGATIVE STATEMENTS ONLY HURT
(6)CONSTANTLY CHANGING YOUR RELATIONSHIP
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT HOW OTHER PEOPLE VIEW
JUST REMEMBER….PERCEPTION IS REALITY
“I am not really sure if this is wrong, it just makes
you appear HIGHLY unstable, or a liar,
whatever comes first….”
“Do not allow what you consider good to be
spoken of as evil
(7)UPDATING YOUR LOCATION EVERY SECOND
“Why does everyone need to know your every
bowel movement ??
REFER TO NUMBER 08
( WHEN YOU ARE GOING ON VACATION!
Everyone is excited when they go on a beautiful
vacation, however, I would always refrain letting all
of your Facebook friends know exactly when you
are going and returning.
People steal….mostly someone you know.
If you choose to brag about your whereabouts,
only tell a few during the time of the vacation.
AFTER you return, you can brag all day long!
PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
(9)HEAVY USE OF PROFANITY!
Whether you like it or not, in this country there is a
reason why we call certain words “bad.”
Today, saying these words is no longer the
problem….writing them is!!!
Because these “potty” words have a bad stigma
attached to them, IT A BAD IDEA TO POST THESE
Bad language also includes using hate words,
slander or victimizing other people.
“Perception is reality. If you ever want a career or
a chance of respectable relationship…”
“Yes, you can say whatever you want, but
understand for every behaviour their are
“If your purpose is too bad mouth someone else,
you are only bad mouthing yourself…keep it
STOP WRITING DIRTY WORDS!!!!!
“Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps
himself out of trouble
(10)PICTURES OF YOU PARTYING HARD, SMOKING
AND INDECENT DRESSING
Everyone wants to enjoy life. But in today’s
internet world, anything you post could last a
lifetime. Many people find these photos highly
entertaining and they are….until you realize they
will continue to resurface FOR THE REST OF YOUR
Your so-called friends are probably busy copy,
pasting those and sharing them with other people.
They are not laughing with you, they are laughing
If you are using pictures like this for attention, this
is the wrong way to go!
Any associate who does this to you, IS NOT YOUR
These photos are downloaded worldwide and posted on websites for the enjoyment of many people.
Try to take down as many obscene photos as possible and move on…
IF YOU SEE A FRIEND WITH CRAZY POSTS:
Do not laugh, this is not funny!
Do not share!
Encourage your friend to TAKE THE PICTURE
You are not being a true friend if you are
participating in permanently humiliating another
What if someone did that to you?
And if you are using this as a revenge tactic…
What goes around comes around!”
Displaying another person’s humiliating moment
that could potentially destroy their career or
relationship, just makes you a weak person!
Revenge is never sweet and it will NOT make you
feel better in the end.
Strong people never do things to hurt another
person purposely and if they do…the never kick
someone who is already knocked down, they wait
