Facebook is a social network where you connect with your friends, family and communities to share photos, videos, and stories. The first version of Facebook was created by Mark Zuckerberg in his Harvard dorm room on February 4th, 2004. It was initially limited to Harvard students but then it gradually expanded to other schools. It managed to expand and destroy everything that was on the internet such as MySpace or internet forums, now it has over 2 and half billion users. Although many younger people prefer other social networks such as TikTok and have left Facebook to their parents and grandparents. Therefore Facebook and Instagram are now trying to reconquer younger people with a series of strategies.

If you are one of those people who are still on Facebook avoid to make the following mistakes though. Firstly, only publish restricting access to your friends, do not post to your friends of friends. Especially if one day you might look for a job or you plan to become famous. Anyone can see your post, and if you’re not careful, it could be read by the person you’re complaining about. That’s why publicly complaining about your boss or co-workers is not recommended behaviour.

Don’t use Facebook as your own soapbox, engage with other people’s post, it is like a party  where you are there to mix with others and you can’t expect everyone to listen to you and then walk away. Which is basically what you are doing if you post without ever reading or commenting other people’s posts. Although it’s aonline, there are real people out there, and you should always behave like you do in real life.

Be careful who you befriend. Facebook phishing works like this: A young person sends you a friend request. Then they start sending you chat messages one by one, using the pretext of getting to know each other better. Eventually, they’ll give you a link to continue the chat. That link will lead you to a phishing website. This is the most common of all data theft traps on the web. To avoid getting into trouble first ask if this social media contact is reliable, then invite them to your circles first, and after that interact with them on different levels if they are really trustworthy

And please don’t like your own posts, ever.
