    Social Media Conduct: What's Your Policy?

    I posted this article on the Perissos Resources Facebook page today. This thread is an invitation to open discussion about the parameters you set for yourself when participating on social media sites. TWeb counts as one of those. Tell me which sites you use regularly, how you make decisions about what you post, what you view, and who you friend. No spam, please.

    Basically the only site other than tweb that I post to is Facebook (very rarely to google+)
    I post only to my friends, and mostly about silly stuff, the weather, politics, and such. Mostly I keep in touch with family and friends I don't see that often.

    1) I don't spew hate messages and I don't participate in them
    2) I don't gossip (well maybe a little)
    3) I try REALLY hard not to say something I'll regret later
    4) I don't say something or do something an employer could use against me
    5) I don't do anything illegal
    6) I only friend people I know or know who they are. If someone wants to be in they life I need to know they aren't dangerous. For this reason, there are some people that have been in and out of my life that I will not let on my social media sites.

    One thing I think the article should have included: "Is it true?"

    I'm gonna modify Catholicity's list for myself since it makes a good template

    1) I spew hate messages and I participate in them. I highly recommend that everyone find a web site with no manners, decorum or the least bit of humanity in its membership. It's highly cathartic.
    2) I don't gossip
    3) I TRY really hard not to say something I'll regret later. Emphasis on try.
    4) I don't say something or do something an employer could use against me
    5) I don't do anything illegal
    6) I friended a ton of people for facebook games. I'd sooner friend a stranger than someone I know in real life.

    Curious about how you reconcile 1) with 4).



    I have friends on social media from family, business, and faith arenas, some of whom I only know casually. So, I do nothing there I wouldn't do in a public setting. I say nothing there I wouldn't publicly announce. I consider social media somewhat of an accountability partner. If I have to think it through before posting it, I think everyone wins.

    Maybe #1 is part of his job.

    I want to know how he reconciles number one with claiming to be a Christian. The two just don't mesh.
