Dumb Things You Shouldn't Do On Facebook Or Anywhere Else

Everyone does something stupid from time to time, unfortunately if you happen to post it on facebook or anywhere else on the internet its going to follow you around for a very long time to come. Because once something is out there on the web you can pretty much forget about it ever disappearing.

Something that a lot of people don't seem to realize is the fact that more and more employers and prospective employers are checking out their employees face book pages, to get an idea of just what their employees are up to on their free time.

This article is about just a few of some of the silly things that people do on facebook. Like posting inappropriate pictures, posting while drunk, gossiping about co-workers and even logging in while committing a crime.

Silly Things People Do On Facebook

1. Posting Nude Pictures:
I bet this is something actress Vanessa Hudgens wished she'd learned before sending some nude photos' of herself to a boy a few years ago. And after all of these years it's still coming back to bite her. Because about once a year or so somebody will release one or two more of the embarrassing pictures.

2. Post About How Much You Hate Your Boss Or Job:
This one has caused a lot of people to lose their jobs, and could even leave you open to a lawsuit. Like for instance the school teacher who called her students germ bags and their parents arrogant snobs. Or the nurse who put up some of her patients X-rays and then proceeded to back fun of them.

3. Posting Party Pictures:
Your party pictures depending on how bad they look can also get you fired or even cause you to lose that promotion to a more professional looking coworker who knows better than to put personal photos up on the internet.

4. Logging In On Facebook While Committing A Crime:
Did you hear about the guy who in the midst of committing a home robbery stopped to check on his facebook page using his victims computer? Unfortunately for him he also forgot to logout afterwards.

5. Posting On Your Wall While Drunk:
I'm sure that a lot of people can relate to this one, but it's always best to stay off facebook while drunk. While it may make for some funny reading for some people, that profanity laced rant against the President will only come back to haunt you later once you've managed to sober up.

It's unfortunate that this should be all be common sense.

I wonder if Google+ circles can mix this up a bit? Sharing your 'Party Pictures' (which seems reasonalbe compared to some others) with just your circle friends would keep it away from your colleagues.

That's a good question, but I really don't know, it does sound possible though.

I tell my husband all the time to think before he posts on facebook. Even if you have good common sense in the heat of the moment can get the best of you.
