Stumbling from one post to the other, I can’t help but feel a little bit guilty for invading his personal social media space. But hey! Nobody ever wrote the proper ethics of how social media should be utilized.
Honestly, I cringe a little seeing facebook and twitter posts from his age. Although this may not come directly from his friends, but tagged and shared photos seem a little inappropriate for me. But before going deeper into that issue, let me discuss some social media do’s and don’ts we are not really aware of.
5 Social Media Do’s and don’ts you might want to consider
1. Do keep your private angst, well, private
We are just here eating popcorn while you and your boyfriend fight over your petty issues. If someone has took advantage of your sweet personality, or you feel a little bit aghast with your boss, please do resist that tempt to tweet rant or any passive-aggressive “You know who you are” status. Why, most of the time, it will get you in trouble.
2. Don’t overshare
Those new watch, the expensive restaurant you went, or maybe that “branded” bag you got from your boyfriend, hey, we are watching. There was an incident where a friend was robbed because of flaunting too much stuff on facebook. She tagged herself on foursquare and some crazy people just took the guts to get money out of her. Horrible, but this may be true. So before you share those little luxuries you have, you might want to think twice.
3. Do post about personal hobbies
You’ll never know who shares the fun with your personal hobby. A friend of mine often shares article on bike safety. He uses his social media to help enhance and inform his friends of a very healthy lifestyle he aims to have. This in return encourages people to take interest in the beauty of biking. A playlist would also be nice. Music is a universal language, and who knows, somebody speaks the same words like you do.

4. Don’t engage in social media fight
This is common these days. You would normally see the clash between two opposing sides when it comes to politics, gender fluidity and current events. I don’t really get it why someone would push their opinions on other people. Does it even make the world a little bit better? C’mon guys, why don’t we promote unity and love instead?
5. Do interact with professionals, influencers and friends
Not only that this can be a great avenue to expand your ideas and knowledge on a certain topic, interacting with various people also boost your creativity, outlook and network.
A recent study has showed that Some of the many benefits of ongoing social interaction are:
· A feeling of acceptance
· The possibility for friendship
· An increase in self-esteem
· A chance to have fun
And so ladies and gentlemen, I have spoken. My brother might know what I have been up to with his social media accounts, he might block me or worse, delete me from his life. But that won’t stop me from telling him what he needs to know.
Because of this, Globe Telecom, being a purveyor of digital lifestyle, came out with the #makeITsafePH cybersecurity and cyberwellness campaign to educate consumers about online threats and what they can do to avoid becoming a victim. The campaign also teaches the public proper online etiquette so that they would not become a source of such deplorable behavior.
