Facebook Advice

Here is some good advice about facebook and guidelines you should follow is you are going through rush in the Fall. I know you are getting ready to graduate and there will be parties but don't let people who are now in a soroity see these things about you

Things that you should not have on your facebook profiles/walls/names:
No inappropriate words or phrases on your facebook wall/names/picture descriptions, including but not limited to:
Slut, whore, ass, wasted, drunk, trashed, , shit, damn, bitch, etc. (or any other words that could be used to denote these words…biatch, fing, etc

No Private parts exposed No inappropriate gestures, No bras or thongs showing

Kissing:
No kissing girls on: lips, boobs, butts Boys – No inappropriate touching or grabbing


No ALCOHOL on you Don't be holding:
Party cups (red solo cups), beer cans/bottles, champagne, liquor, wine glasses, margarita glasses, martini glasses, etc.

If you look drunk or people around you do, even if you aren’t, detag or delete the picture Hope this helps you. People and furture employeer do look at these.

My advice is don't ever put anything out there you wouldn't want your parents, grandparents, pastor/minister/priest/clergyperson, future employer, future spouse or future kids to see.

I would prefer that PNMs avoid the whole Facebook/MySpace issue altogether and just make their profiles private/friends-only. Problem solved.

Sorry about all the fonts they showed up with the first I thought I had removed them on Word but I guess not
Most of this stuff came from HS PTSA

can we sticky this to the top of the forum instead of having 50M threads about this?

i agree that you should just make your facebook/myspace profile private and if you get a friend request from somebody you don't know *during rush week* then don't accept it. duh.

I think it's good advice for anyone's facebook that isn't set to private--rushees, pledges, actives...and even GDIs.

I'd even be careful with my profile set to "private" as well. Sometimes you can't trust your "friends" to leave what's on facebook--on facebook. Plus, it looks pretty hypocritical to be president or standards or something but have a facebook full of the "slut, ho, biatch" kind of stuff. What kind of a message does that send your friends or anyone else who looks up to you?

On the other hand, people should try to remember that Facebook isn't reality.

Be smart and don't make yourself look bad, but also remember that some PNMs aren't as wise as you are. They may just think it's funny to be a member of goofy groups.

I have my facebook completely hidden so that if you search for me, my name won't even come up. I recommend that PNMs do that. Also, I agree that this applies to everyone, not just PNMs- every time I see a profile of a girl where the interests are "tequila shots and smoking weed" a part of me dies on the inside. Especially when that girl has ASA all over her profile.

Seriously, if people would just read the thread that is already stickied, labeled "General Advice"...

I would advise everyone having their facebook and myspace private except for friends. Its just safer that way in this crazy stalker world.
