The Unspoken Rules of Social Media

Do's, don'ts, and REALLY don'ts.

The Unspoken Rules of Social Media

Our generation is very social media driven. Some of us have picked up on the unspoken social media rules and some of us have not. For some people they use their social media as a shrine to how good they are and some of us do not post very often at all. Here are the unspoken rules of social media:

1. Do not post a 500 second long story, of all the same thing.

We all have that one friend who will post every 5 minutes of the different songs the DJ plays at a party.

2. You only need to post a picture to Instagram once maybe twice a day.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

If you want to post 2+ photos on Instagram then just make a Facebook album.

3. If you make a collage for a birthday dont use a billion tiny photos use a few big ones.

4. You do not need 5+ hashtags in one post, one or two will do just fine.

no caption needed.

5. Do not post and then delete and then post something else to Instagram. We will notice.

We notice, especially if we have already liked it!!

6. Even is your best friends post is terrible you still have to like it.

You know the post im talking about the one where the lighting is bad, her hair looks pretty bad, and he makeup is all over the place.

7. Having other people take snap chat videos of your outfit.

We dont need a video of you twirl for 10 second in an outfit.

8. Do not post 5 billion quotes on facebook, instagram, twitter, or snapchat singling one person out.

We all have that one friend that breaks up with someone and then makes everyone else pay for it. We eventually will unfollow or block you.

9. DO NOT like your own post. That is a sure way to look desperate.

Please just dont.

10. Do not over edit your photos!

We all have that one or two friends that like to over edit to where it does not even look like themselves.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
