Etiquette On Poking On Facebook


There was an interesting article on Reuters (London) where they mentioned some noteworthy guidelines…..

Mark Watt-Jones, head of development and innovation at Orange, said “Whether you are checking your Facebook profile or posting photos of friends on MySpace at work, these guidelines will ensure you never lose old friends or make unwanted new ones.”

The golden rules compiled by Debrett’s with Orange are:

1. You don’t have to make friends with people you don’t know. Think before you poke.

2. Wait 24 hours before accepting or removing someone as a friend. The delay will help you gather your thoughts.

3. Birthdays, engagements and weddings are not “virtual” events. Always send cards or phone friends when there is an important event.

4. Think before posting a friend’s photo what you would feel like if it was you.

5. Think carefully about your profile picture. Would you want it to be appearing in your local newspaper?
