Finish this sentence. It is never OK on Facebook to…
Mandy Loman speak wrongly about another person or business
Belinda Facciol Spam your customers!
Rebecca Spath Reveal confidences. This site is more public that we will ever know.
Gina Iannotti Edmond Post notes/comments that contain derogatory commentary regarding former members of your company – if you don’t know both sides of the story (and even if you do), keep those comments private. Your reputation winds up getting hurt more than your former colleagues. .
Jenny Dammann Complain about the direct-selling company you work for. ON their fan page. 🙂
Jodi Truscott Post inappropriate/racy/offensive photos. Even as a joke.
Marbella Walberg Spata point out other peoples errors! We are all human and learn from our mistakes… 😉
Brenda Burich swear
Gina Iannotti Edmond @Marbella–thanks for not calling me out on my double period above 🙂
Marbella Walberg Spata @Gina NO WORRIES…we are here to have fun and learn from each other! 😉
Kelly Green Post lewd or pornographic images! Just got one today, so annoying!
Jennifer Williams Talk hot issues – no politics, abortion, same sex marriage, etc
Andrea Wooten Thompson Make product claims such as results u will receive by using one product vs another
Christy Busbey, Thirty-One Gifts Consultant
Talk badly about your customers. I once posted I was frustrated that someone who asked me to call was very rude to me because she answered her cell phone in an inappropriate place. Obviously I was not aware of her situation. I was upset and posted to my facebook that “if someone is not in a situation where they can’t answer their phone they shouldn’t, I was getting tired of getting yelled at by people who told me to call” My business coach (who is on my facebook) caught my post and told me I could have lost valuable customers because of this comment. It was a harsh reality
Noora Kragenbrink Post anything you wouldn’t want printed on the cover of the New York Times.
Betsy Bullock Kohan post your personal shopping site web address on your company’s page
Kristen Boyd Goodman Jenny Dammann took mine 🙂 but also do not take your friend’s “friends” and send them emails and invites about YOUR business without them knowing.
Amber Smith, A Muse Studio Consultant say things you wouldn’t say to someone in person.
Don’t make tons of requests for help on Farmville or whatever game you’re playing. One sorta business builder is constantly on Farmville and also sharing her rantings and ravings about politics, the president, politicians, public policy, etc. Obviously her business is not part of her priorities, plus she is offending a lot of people. Those things should be shared only personally and offline with those who share your beliefs, not on Facebook.
Amen, Rae and Leigh!
complain or wine about your children, friends and family…. and especially talk about your relgiuos beliefs assuming; everyone out there is with the same belief.
So very true Pola!
Amber said my biggest – post your sales link on my page (even though I don’t sell, if you do it to me, you’ll do it to others and that’s just rude).
Inviting me to everything under the sun, regardless of where the event is versus where I live.
Posting “chain letter” posts on my wall. Ugh, I hate those things…and I won’t re-post them, regardless if I’ll go to hell or all my friends think I don’t love them. 😛
LOL! Completely agree with you on all of these Leigh! 🙂
Become a continual, running commercial. I heard recently that a good split is 80% usable content to 20% sales pitches. You should be offering your friends or fans valuable information (and, no, “Get ______ for $___” is not valuable content).
Exactly Rae! Wise words!
