Six Unwritten Rules Of The Internet - Must Read.

There are in fact unwritten rules guiding internet usage that you probably didn’t know about.......

Rule 1:

If I’m Not In Your Picture, Don’t Tag Me

Too many internet users disregard this rule to the ire of those who have to deal with being tagged on pictures they have no idea about or are completely uninterested in. If you think about it, it’s really unfair to carelessly tag people in pictures. If you’re absolutely eager for the person to see a picture, simply mention the person in the comments. The ‘@’ feature was created to serve this very purpose.

Rule 2:

Don’t Argue With Trolls

It’s a waste of time and it’s much like arguing with a brick wall – useless and frustrating. Just ignore them and move on. Let them have their 1 or 2 minutes of fame and be forgotten like the irrelevant features of the internet that they are.

Rule 3:
Anything You Write Can and Will Be Used Against You or Turned Into Something Else

The second part is very likely, especially on social media. Your words are very likely going to be misunderstood by one or two people and turned around into something entirely different from what you could have even fathomed. You just have to keep that in mind and try to prepare for it when you post words on social media. In addition, avoid writing carelessly on social media about people or organizations. Write what you mean and mean what you write because the internet is a public place and anyone can call you out on your BS. Be wise.

Rule 4:

No Real Limits Apply Here

On the internet, people can say anything about anyone in anyway. Some people go as far as commenting on very uncomfortable and awkward aspects of their lives and the lives of others. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone comes out with an ‘nkan be’ tale of their experience in this world, and then you start to hear stories of how a person was romanced by a goat into sexual intimacy. There are absolutely no limits here, so prepare yourself. Get ready to see any and everything.

Rule 5:

If You Lose a Social Media Debate, Just Take the L

It’s as simple as that. Be mature about it and respectfully entertain the other person’s winning argument. Don’t get mad or feel humiliated. That’s just unnecessary. No one knows everything, so just accept it as a lesson that you can actually learn from. Cursing the person or blocking the person for winning an argument is inappropriate and just makes you look silly.

Rule 6:

If a Person Posts Something Sad About Themselves on Their Timeline, Don’t Hit Like It

Imagine posting about a losing a job, a beloved relative or a significant other, and a person hits like on the post. It seems like the person is relishing the misery of the other person. Please be wise and don’t like posts carelessly. Comment where you should and if you have nothing to say, just move on.

  1. Rule number 1 can be really annoying sometimes. Someone will take a'tundaful'selfie and tag over a hundred people. Like wth.

    Number 2,3? Aha! It's seen here on a daily.

    Number 6? SMH.

    Well done Damilola.

    1. They forgot to mention ' Do not post pics of others on social media without their permission '. Even if you are in the picture with the person, always ask for permission before posting online. I fell out with a friend of mine over this...i warned her several times but she is obsessed with social media and feels the need to post every damn thing. So annoying

    2. Hmmm I practically avoid to take pic with people like that

    3. Rule number 1 n 6 annoys me most.

  2. My two major rules...Zero social media account and zero pictures of me on the internet. My friends know, if it's got me in it, don't post. If you must,crop me out of it.

    MISS Jacobs.

    1. As a celebrity that you are friend nobody cares to know who you are on social media..

    2. Very wise decision. Some ppl just imagine that everybody shares their passion for publicity.

  3. There are certainly more rules than these few.

    1. Ehn, sebi this o d is unwritten. Maybe those ones are written.

    2. Write your own. Sigh*

  4. Replies
    1. There is a name for people like you.

      But it's Thursday, amma keep my peace.

    2. Hahahahahaha Anonymous orubebe walahi u no well at all

  5. No 1 happens all the time... They will just tag u and 95 other people to achieve 300 likes...taking selfie in the bathroom and be claiming I was with can be annoying sha
    2,3,4 hmmm
    No 6 is the most annoying part of what people do on social media!
    Someone will post about losing their relatives and some fools will still hit the like button as if it's a good news

  6. Exactly. Don't tag me in a pix if I'm not in it or in a post.

    And I hate when someone comes to my page to post trash, straight blocking.

  7. I feel Facebook should have a dislike button. They do right, maybe a button acknowledging this is sad news P

  8. Trolls shd be given their credit, abeg. The problem with ppl is that they hate to hear the bitter truth. Understandably, the positive posts they get from their small niche of admirers is part of the tonic that helps them get by. Unfortunately for them, others have to tell them up front, the views of a much larger and diverse world; and what better place to do so than on their pages. Often enough, it's actually the troll that's their real friend. It's not everybody that gives two about fame.
