10 Things Not to Share on Social Media

10 Things (You Think Would Are Obvious) Not to Share on Social Media (But People Do Anyways)

Social media is all about transparency, sharing and being your organic authentic self.


Well there are some things you should probably just keep to yourself.

Here’s 10 of them:

#1 Your phone number

There are creepy, disturbed people out there on the Internet with ill intentions and bad manners. They are called telemarketers. Don’t feed the telemarketers. Especially after midnight. Sort of like Gremlins.

#2 Pictures of your credit card

Yep. People actually do this. I know you’re proud of your new Toronto Maple Leaf’s branded VISA card, but showing it off on Instagram is like posting Identity theft porn.

#3 Pictures of any bodily function

I know where you think I’m going with this one, but I’m not. I’m talking about potty training. This is one instance where “pics or it didn’t happen” needs to not apply.

#4 This

#5 An invitation to “please rob me”

Letting the 1/6 of the human population of this planet that is on Facebook know that you’re in Mexico this week while that brand new 60” TV that you posted about last week is home all alone is an invitation to “please rob me.”

#6 Vaguebooking

“Wondering why…” Me too. Un-follow.

#7 Your password

This one should be at the top of the no-brainer pile. If your password is the name of your cat who has his own Facebook account with 1,632 friends, then you either need to change your password or your cat.

#8 Anything that happened in Vegas

This is a rule for a reason.

#9 Your Klout score or any other social media stat

You’re clearly over compensating for something, which leads to the final thing you should never share on social media…

#10 A naked selfie

If you’re a A list celebrity taking nude pictures of your self in the bathroom with your iPhone for your PR firm to leak to the media that’s fine. Otherwise, not cool.

Facebook Home is no Longer Just All About Facebook

Facebook Home in no Longer Just All About Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Flickr are All Invited…

Facebook is acknowledging that most smartphone owners want a broader view of the social-networking universe, not just a window to planet Facebook.

Starting Thursday, the company is incorporating Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Instagram content into the Facebook Home lock screen experience, marking the biggest modification since a dramatic shift in strategy that came after its once-bundled Android software package failed to move consumers.

The Home improvement, only available in the Facebook for Android beta application to start, gives application users the option to add streams of content from the third-party, image-rich social services to their smartphone lock screens. The release turns Cover Feed, a picture-centric, panning version of News Feed that replaces a smartphone’s lock screen, into a more socially aware zone where people can consume photos and posts from places other than Facebook.

Adding non-Facebook content to Home is part of the social network’s switched-up strategy to slice and dice Home into pieces — the messaging app Chat Heads, Cover Feed, and the application launcher — that consumers may actually want to add to their smartphone. After a flop of a launch, Facebook hopes Cover Feed, as a standalone, ambiently aware lock screen for visually enjoying a variety of friends’ and celebrities’ updates, will convince people to give Home a second chance.

Facebook-owned Instagram is an obvious addition to the lock screen. Tumblr, Pinterest, and Flickr, meanwhile, highlight the social network’s remodeled attitude and should appeal to people other than just Facebook enthusiasts. People can engage with the added content just as they would with Facebook content in Cover Feed, meaning they can double tab on the screen to favorite a Flickr photo or “heart” an Instagram, Tumblr, or Pinterest photo. There’s also a “view on” link included with the third-party photos and posts that, when clicked, will direct people to the site in question.

Facebook for Android beta users can turn on the additional services from the Home settings menu. Though currently in limited release, Facebook eventually plans to make the more inclusive lock screen available through its standard Android application and is already testing it in the wild, a Facebook spokesperson told CNET. The company also plans to add additional services to the lock screen but has nothing further to announce beyond the four added Thursday, the spokesperson said.

The Facebook CIA Project

The Onion – America’s Finest News Source posted this video in 2011. But with all of the recent controversy over PRISM, is it as funny as it was two years ago? Hmmmmm.
