50 Facebook dos & don'ts
Don’t post constantly
Facebook isn't the same as Twitter, where the news feed moves with lightning speed. On Facebook, things move slower and people may get annoyed if you post every few minutes.

Video: Getting banned from Facebook
Don’t sync Spotify
Don’t type in ALL CAPS
Don’t post food photos
Do use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation
Even with 140 characters in a tweet, which oftentimes is linked to your Facebook page, using correct grammar is key! How many job postings do you see with "strong written and/or verbal communication skills" as requirements? These aren't optional anymore. Check your grammar and spelling to make sure that it's top-notch.

Don’t tell someone else's secrets.

Don’t use your maiden name
Don't publish your maiden name. Too many sites still use this as authentication.
- Robert Siciliano, McAfee's Online Security Expert
Don’t talk politics
We live in a 53-47 split country. You can speak to the choir, but you will most likely get into fights. That takes the fun away from the site.

Don’t share pillow talk
Simply choose not to share this kind of information on Facebook at all, and also ask your romantic partners early on to respect your wishes and do the same when it comes to sharing information about you. Romantic relationships can be challenging enough to navigate without these added complications.
