30+ Things You Should Never Share On Facebook

August 2, 2012 - Posted by Tolzoh
While there are plenty of things that we all enjoy seeing on Facebook, there are also a ton of things that nobody likes to see . 

If you post any of the things below, you should consider changing your Facebook habits! , or else your friends might leave noticing your updates.

These are 7 major things that we strongly recommend not to post.

Your Phone Number

Do you have any ex-girlfriends or boyfriends that you don’t want getting in touch with you? A great way to help them reconnect is by publishing your new phone number. The best way to let people know about your new phone number is to text them!

Pictures Of Feet (with or without your canvas shoes)

Oh, did you really just get a pedicure? That’s great news but does everybody really need to see your feet? Unless you are a foot model (congrats if you are!), you really should refrain from posting pictures of your feet.

Uninteresting Baby Photos

So we all know that you are having a baby and it’s great news. However, if you document your entire child’s life on Facebook you’ve gone overboard. There’s a reason they call them home videos: Leave them at home for your private collection. We all love entertaining baby videos like this one, but do we really need to see every update? Everybody loves a cute baby, but documenting every moment like the applesauce they just ate, really is unnecessary.

It’s Complicated

When you’re in high school it’s funny to say that you are in a relationship with someone else, but if you are sharing with the world that you have hit a rough patch, you aren’t doing yourself any favors. Seriously, hold off on posting that things aren’t easy for you right now. While your friends may post their sympathies in follow on comments, they really actually have pity for you. If you need support, call your friends, don’t post about it on Facebook for everybody to see!

Checking In To Common Locations

If you’re snorkeling in the great barrier reef, I’d recommend checking in on Facebook. However if you are picking up a Snickers bar at some branded pastry shop or checking into Airports, there’s really no benefit to posting about it. The best things to share on Facebook are those things that are exciting and interesting, but driving through the McDonald’s drive through is really not something your friends want to know about.

Something For Sale

There’s a reason Craigslist exists: to sell things. While you may have a used bike to sell, the odds that one of your friends wants to buy it right now is much less than someone buying it on Craigslist or another site. Seriously, if you have something to sell, go somewhere that the buyers are actually shopping!

Poorly Taken Photos

Your pet may be cute, and honestly, that’s something I enjoy seeing, but if you mess up the shot, it hurts your image. The plane you are taking off in may be exciting, but seeing the flash in the window reflection is painful for the trained eye! Frame the shot, make sure the flash is properly set, and shoot. If the photo doesn’t turn out well, take the photo again and share that to Facebook instead!

Some more updates, which I personally think you must avoid on Facebook.

  1. What chicken you are plucking or cow you’re milking on Farmville.
  2. How many you have killed on Mafia wars or where they are buried.
  3. Party photos showing you inebriated or a hand placed where it shouldn’t be.
  4. That you are having a party. You might get more guests than you counted on.
  5. Photos revealing you flirting with the bosses wife at the Annual Office Party.
  6. That you are having an affair.
  7. That you are thinking of having an affair.
  8. Complaints about your boss.
  9. That you hate your job and want to leave. You might get your wish, involuntarily. God is everywhere.
  10. Don’t share photos or an event that reveals that you were not sick that day at work.
  11. That you are upset with your girlfriend.
  12. Drama with your friends.
  13. Issues with your parents.
  14. Passwords. Unless you have more money than brains.
  15. Hints about passwords like dogs names.
  16. Images and videos of your children.
  17. Updates on Facebook after you have escaped from Jail and on the run (don’t laugh it has happened).
  18. Revealing your thoughts about a court case, when on jury duty.
  19. Financial information such as how much money you do or don’t have in your bank account.
  20. Personal Information. (can be anything)
  21. How to get more friends or followers, it already sounds like a scam.
  22. You are leaving on a holiday. (will you take us along? No, then who gives a F*#k)
  23. The dates you are away on your holiday.
  24. Your daily schedule, burglars have been known to use these little hints to their advantage.
  25. Showing you doing something stupid, not good for personal branding.
  26. Your bodily functions.
  27. Revealing extreme views on Race, Religion or politics.
  28. What you had for breakfast.
  29. Finally, If you are not comfortable about it, don’t share it.
You can add the 30th point, and even more, we are open to your comments. But do keep in mind atleast these points before updating something on Facebook.
