Are you worried you may be a social media over-sharer? Unsure what is appropriate for the internet and what you should keep to yourself? Well don't worry, ya boy Mrs. Manners is here with a crash course on social media etiquette. Here's a few tips.
Miserable + Mundane = Bad
|Cool story, bro.|
From the mundane, to the overly dramatic...
|@ somebody, mami.|
I was older than 12 when social media was invented, so I've never understood calling somebody out online without tagging them. It seems like the most childish thing you could do. Also, it's super pointless. You realize the people you're sub-tweeting about can see your posts, right? Plus everyone else who follows you is gonna be like "whoa, this person is really boring and passive-aggressive. I like them less than I did before reading this." Instead of being passive-aggressive, try being aggressive-aggressive and using that @ symbol instead. Fun for everyone involved!

See! Look at the engagement numbers. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERS, PEOPLE!
Chill with the personal rants.
Yo. I shouldn't even have to explain why this is a bad idea. If you're thinking about posting something like this, please don't. There are hotlines you can call instead.
PS: People who comment "what's wrong buddy?" or "it's gonna be okay" are only making it worse. You know how they say not to feed the raccoons at Algonquin Park because they'll just come back looking for more food? Commenting on someone's social media meltdown does same thing with their shitty behaviour. Try calling the cops on them instead.
Which brings me to my next point...
Why are you trying to finesse drugs?

In social media class, we learned you shouldn't post something unless you would want your grandma or boss to see it. I can't think of a single person who would want their grandma to know they purchase illegal narcotic stimulants, so why do I see people posting "who's got the coke hookup?" on FACEBOOK! Remember what I said earlier about everyone you know being the FBI in the van outside? Well, the actual FBI can monitor your social media too, so chill with the drug talk, hombres.
That's all the bad social media etiquette I can think of for now. If you have anything else, leave it in the comments below.
