Is Facebook Ruining Your Friendships? | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Lisa Cowell's curator insight, August 22, 2014 9:43 PM

"When Facebooking at home alone, it can feel like you're having a private exchange. It's easy to forget that other people are in on the conversation."

 

The article almost doubles as a troubleshooting guide, with suggestions from an 'online reputation management expert' for avoiding or mollifying potentially awkward or relationship-damaging situations (particularly with our 'offline' loved ones we connect with online) on account of seemingly innocent social media activity.

 

Most of us have inadvertently 'been there, done that' already, but the real-life examples or hypothetical situations presented will certainly allow one to think twice before making a flippant comment on a loved one's Facebook post.
