7 Things You Should Avoid Doing On Facebook

I am not really a Facebook fan before. I just created the account two years ago because I need to get in touch with someone. Then visiting it from time to time to check if that person is online.

But, Lo and Behold! Most of my spare time are now spent on Facebook. Take note, I don’t play any game on Facebook, though I have some accounts on Farmville, Restaurant City, FishVille, PetVille and the like. I just registered to these games due to invites. Anyway, on Facebook, I promote my products, my sites and do some important announcements.

Then I just read from an online article that there are things that should be avoided doing on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Friendster and other Social Networking Sites as these can jeopardize my security, as well as my family’s.

Here are the 7 Things You Should Avoid Doing On Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Friendster and other Social Networking Sites

1. Using a Weak Password
2. Leaving Your Full Birth Date in Your Profile
3. Overlooking Useful Privacy Controls
4. Posting Your Child’s Name in a Caption
5. Mentioning That You’ll Be Away From Home
6. Letting Search Engines Find You
7. Permitting Youngsters to Use Facebook Unsupervised

In addition, there are also things you shouldn’t reveal, Tweet and Post These on Twitter and Facebook. They are listed below:

1. Your Birth Date and Place
2. Vacation Plans
3. Home Address
4. Confessions
5. Password Clues
6. Risky Behaviors

Hmmm…Now I have to think twice before I post something on Facebook and Tweet something on my Twitter account…
