Facebook has become one of the most popular social media networks these days. There are other social networking sites but the popularity of Facebook seems to rise with every passing day. In short, there is no competitor to Mr. Zuckerberg’s Facebook.
These days, many users get engaged into heavy verbal fights over Facebook. Such sort of bitter fights can be harmful for the user’s personal as well as professional dignity. There can be thundering word-storms as a result of such fights. This will affect the community severely. To be very honest, online fights are simply a waste of time and energy. What it does is nothing but creating a bad image of the person involved in such useless verbal fights. It can threat and damage delicate relationships.
Let’s take a look at some of the best ways to avoid fights over Facebook and stay out from such controversial situations:
1. Never take Facebook too seriously
Sound amazing but it is very true. Facebook can well be a reflection of your own status; still, remember it’s not your real life. It’s just a social network to interact with friends and family members. Always try to think less about the disturbing discussions carried out on Facebook. Try to be indifferent towards some troublesome people you meet over Facebook. Simply pay less attention to what people are discussing or saying over this online media, especially those that don’t cater to your taste or seem disturbing to you. There are obviously a certain category of cynics who spend long hours on Facebook homepage and try hard to criticize some specific status update. These are other stupid behaviors to highlight, too.
2. Be very careful when replying to chat
In real world, fights happen face to face. There are also ample chances of avoiding conflicts. But over the internet, things can get seriously critical with a small twist or some minor turns. Here in Facebook, communication takes place through text transcription. Since there is no way to tell the tongue and the tone, one needs to be very careful while replying to chats. Think carefully before replying to any of the chat messages. Before hitting the ENTER button, think not once but twice or thrice regarding the type of reply you are trying to input into the chat box. Be very careful with the language. Please, don’t use foul words and try to be a bit more on the polite side.
3. Get bowed out before bowing in
Funny but true to every sense! One of the most irritating behaviors of Facebook users is Tagging. Although Tagging is quite beneficial at times, but it can have negative effects when carried out without permission from the person of whom someone is tagging. It is one of the best sources to spread spams and irritating images. When someone tags you, simply untag yourself from the post. Never panic or be abusive towards that person. It only results in igniting the fire more. So, it is better for you to bow out even before bowing in.
There are enough worries and troubles to face in everyday life. Now, if Facebook again becomes a source of another trouble, then life will become even more difficult. Facebook is simply for fun and entertainment; there is no need to introduce it into the complicated jargon of life. Play safe and enjoy socializing without involving into any fights. Happy Socializing!
