Signs of Failure to Socialize in the Facebook

  1. Instead of using your own real picture for your profile, you use a cartoon character, a celebrity's picture, or worse still, you use a picture of nothing of any figure. What? You are so ashamed of your own face? Then why are you socializing?

  2. Instead of registering using your own real name, you use some hope-to-be funny names, like "Handsome Dude", "Still Single", etc. Does your real name sound anti-social?

  3. You post offensive political content in your status. It is fine if you want to say something good about the politicians. But when you start condemning people, including the politicians, you will get bullets to your face. Never assume everyone in your friends list share the same idea with you about the politics. Be prepared for the bullets if you are planning for political propaganda.

  4. You post offensive religious content in your status. It is fine if you want to say something good about your religion. But when you start condemning other religion, it is not missionary anymore, but a holy war. Again, never assume everyone in your friends list share the same idea with you about your religion. Again, get ready for any kind of cold war.

  5. You are so into politics or religion in your posts, but you make your Facebook ID unlisted or unsearchable. You bang people so much in your wall and in your replies, but people cannot find you to do the same to you. My advice is that, whatever mission your are on, it won't work because you are a coward.

  6. You block or un-follow from your news feed anyone posting content against your political or religious idea. You sure are a person who want people to follow only your ideas. You are always right.

  7. You signed up into Facebook as a business, like MLM. Then you start promoting your products to your friends list. Is that socializing?

  8. You signed up into Facebook as an organization, or movement, etc. Good luck. If the organization is social type, then you are okay.

  9. You keep on updating the same thing on your status, like pictures of what you are eating, the funny actions your kids or cats did, the weddings you attended, etc. Like other people really it like you do.

  10. You do only 2 things is your Facebook: LIKE the posts of others, or SHARE it without a single comment from you.

  11. The clearest sign: NO ONE comment or like your status - this happens to me a lot!!!!!

Don't take it wrongly guys. I myself do those things up there. But, you know, after I read an academic article telling that Facebook is not a social medium anymore.
