Do's and Do not's to Writing the Perfect Facebook Status - Cool Statuses
Staring at that blank status area of your Facebook can be a stressful feeling. You want to update your status and let your friends know how you are feeling, but you don’t want to type something that makes you appear foolish or strange. Here is a list of some simple dos and don’ts for writing a good Facebook status.
- · Do share important things that are going on in your life. Did you just get a promotion? Is your bowling team making the playoffs? Is your daughter getting married? Keeping up with important news is why most people bother to read Facebook status updates anyway.
- · Do post a motivational quote or statement. You want your friends to feel UP when they are reading your Facebook.
- · Do post a good clean joke or pun. Everyone likes a good laugh!
- · Do post a funny picture or a music video from Youtube, you can share some of your personality by posting videos or pictures.
- · Don’t post EVERY detail of your life. Your friends don’t need to know that you went to the grocery store and bought green beans.
- · Don’t give graphic medical details. Your friends may care about your overall health, but they don’t want to hear every detail of your colonoscopy.
- · Don’t post snarky comments that are intended to make one certain person feel bad. Not only is that rude, the comment could make someone else feel like you are talking about them and cause more bad feelings.
- · Don’t post gossip. It can only hurt someone in the long run. Make sure it is okay with someone before you post information about them on Facebook.
- · Don’t post depressing musical lyrics and poetry. They will just make people wonder what is going on with you, and make them uncomfortable.
- · Don’t profess love for someone if you don’t know how they feel in return. This is a sure way to experience disappointment in a very public manner.
- · Don’t post Facebook statuses drunk. EVER!
Hopefully these tips will help you to write the perfect Facebook status that shares your feelings, without risking hurting someone else or opening yourself up to problems.
