1. thou shalt not post thy mundane activities
Just because you’re having a normal day doesn’t mean everyone else wants to hear about it. No one wants to read about what you had for breakfast, what you’re doing for lunch or what you’re doing every minute of the day. If it’s not interesting, don’t post it.

2. thou shalt not post thou art in a relationship
If you’re in a relationship, chances are you’re not going to post every single detail about it on Facebook. You’re also not going to post pictures of every single thing you do together. A little mystery is good. Keep some things to yourself.

3. thou shalt not post photos of thou art in a fight
If you’re in a fight with your significant other, chances are you don’t want to post about it on Facebook. Not only is it a private matter, but it can also be used against you in the future. Keep it off Facebook.

4. thou shalt not post photos of thou art drinking
If you’re going to post photos of yourself drinking, make sure you’re not doing anything that could potentially get you in trouble. No one wants to see pictures of you passed out or doing something stupid. Just use common sense.

5. thou shalt not post photos of thou art naked
This should be common sense, but you’d be surprised how many people post naked photos of themselves on Facebook. Don’t do it. It’s inappropriate and it will likely get you kicked off of Facebook.

6. thou shalt not post photos of thou art in a compromising situation
If you’re in a situation where you could potentially be harmed, don’t take pictures of it and post it on Facebook. This includes things like skydiving, bungee jumping, etc. Just use common sense.

7. thou shalt not post photos of thou art in a fight
Again, this is a private matter that should not be shared on Facebook. Not only is it a private matter, but it can also be used against you in the future. Keep it off Facebook.

8. thou shalt not post photos of thou art drinking
See rule #4.

9. thou shalt not post photos of thou art naked
See rule #5.

10. thou shalt not post photos of thou art in a compromising situation
See rule #6.
