I have been in company where embarrassing photo’s have been taken of friends. Despite their present ‘euphoric’ state after generous amounts of alcohol, people still manage to say – “don’t you dare tag me!”
I find it really amusing when my friends bring up facebook during a night out. I mean, a few years ago we may have been classified as computer geeks, but these days if you're not online, you're considered to be a possible social misfit.
Let’s face it, if you’re on facebook, there is at least one photo that you either hate or are embarrassed by. And it was most likely uploaded by friends! But – it’s ok, because the whole point of being part of a social networking site like facebook is that YOU control who sees your personal details and those embarrassing photo’s!
Everyone has at one point or another received a “friend request” from someone you either
a) don’t know
b) don’t like
... And it’s perfectly fine to hit the “ignore” button. They’ll never know you’ve rejected them. And you have every right in doing so.
But what happens when the friend request is from your mum or dad?!
Don’t get me wrong – I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with the folks having their own facebook account, but do they really want to see what their precious baby was doing on Friday or Saturday night while hitting the town with the boys / girls?!
I highly doubt it…
