Time to return to the corner

It’s been awhile since we stopped by the cleanest corner on the internet. Welcome to Social Media Corner. It’s time to talk about something that everyone seems to be doing these days, especially if you are under the age of 25. I’m here to help you because frankly, the majority of you need it:

So let’s say the following statement together now: YOU DON’T NEED TO POST EVERYTHING ON SOCIAL MEDIA. Do you hear that? Okay, now lets discuss. You have to watch what you are posting because there are somethings that don’t belong on there, like breaking laws or just things you don’t want your mother/grandmother to know.  A good rule of thumb for social media when posting is the rule of  “Would you want your grandma to see this?”

What’s the “Would you want your grandma to see this?” Rule?

I’m glad you asked that. This rule is pretty much a catch guard to stop you from posting things that you will regret or don’t want other people to notices. So all you would need to do is ask yourself “Would you want your grandma to see this?” Before you post that inappropriate picture, post or anything like that would make your grandma blush or just disown you. If your grandma likes those kinds of pictures, then you might want to just walk away because you might find out that your grandma has some secret past as a part-time swinger and a full-time party animal. No one wants to picture their grandma doing shots off of someone or their grandparents hooking up with someone else’s grandparents. Just walk away at that point. It’s just easier for everyone.

Another thing to remember that the stuff you post on social media, including on Snapchat, is always there. It’s extremely easy to make sure those pictures or post around forever, including after you think it’s deleted from the internet. You never know when it going to pop out at you. Of course, it’s going to be at the most inconvenient time. But you can never really get rid of the things that you post. Also, don’t post anything that you thing down the line you will regret posting. You see it all the time when it comes to celebrities, things they posted in the past are coming back and they regret posting them. You have to smart. You will mature as you get older and your views will grow or mature with you. When you look back at it, you will cringe but you want to cringe in a “I cannot believe I was like that” way and not a “omg what did I do/say/post that?”

Hopefully, this will help you make better social media life decisions. If it doesn’t, then good luck with that picture of your privates out in the open at a party because you were too shitfaced to think right.

How to look less Drunk on Social Media

party

Today is St. Patrick’s day so do you know what that means? You and your friends will be getting involved in some heavy drinking and partying like Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan has inhabited your body and took control of your soul. Luckily for you, I’m your friend, commonly known as your “sober buddy”, and I’m here to make sure you don’t look like a hot ass mess to your friends and family to the point your grandma thinks that you need to find Jesus (you probably do but drunk is not how you should be when you find him). So I’m here is to do the impossible: To make you look less drunk on your Social Media. Let’s break it down by how your day will probably go on St. Patrick’s day.

It’s noon (10 a.m. if you like to party hardy) and you and your friends have started to drink and party. You may feel the need to take selfies with your friends and your booze. Don’t do this. If you take them, post it at like 7 p.m. This will make you seem like an alcoholic. It will also cover your butt if you decided to skip work,class, or responsibilities to drink. Posting pics of you drinking is going to get your judged and mock. Also do yourself a favor and don’t tweet/post anything discussing you being or getting intoxicated. That is just asking for trouble.

Now it’s 3:00 P.M. and at this point in the day, you are drunker than Mariah Carey, and she’s a professional drunk. I would recommend putting your phone, or anything with access to the internet, in a spot where your drunk self can’t get it. I also recommend giving your drunk self a name because it will give you a person to blame if this fails. Also, don’t take any pictures of you and your friends because you’ll regret it in the long run.

The clock tolls 7:00 p.m. and you are blackout drunk, or White Girl Wasted. You are slurring your words and pretty much hitting on everything, including your roommate and your roommate’s lamp. At this point, just turn off your phone and hide it from yourself. This is like telling a cop to piss off. It’s not going to end well.

We are going to end it at 7:00 p.m. because the advice is the same. Don’t post anything while you’re drunk. The occasional selfie with a beer is fine because everyone drinks one or two, especially when they are out with friends. It’s just when you are posting pics of yourself WGW. It’s not really attractive, and it makes you seem like you have a drinking problem. It could also ruin any chances you have a job depending on the job and the employer. Like when you are drinking, make smart decisions and don’t do something you regret (like something that may appear 9 months later!)
