Facebook is one of the most incredible websites to have ever been made, standing along side giants like Google and Yahoo and rendering other social media sites like MySpace extinct.

But much like in real life, you can definitely commit serious social faux pas on Facebook. All the behaviors that you find obnoxious in real life are usually exacerbated online.

But is it possible you've been making some Facebook mistakes?

Some of them are a little less common than you think, which is why we've created this handy guide to making sure you aren't doing anything too foolish in front of your friends on Facebook.

Here are 22 things you should avoid at all cost on Facebook.


Vaguebooking can be defined as posting vague statements to Facebook that indicate some kind of life stress or drama in order to garner attention for yourself. Not sure what I'm talking about? Here's a couple examples:

"It feels sooooo good to know who your real friends are! To all my real friends: I love you!"

"I can't believe what my ex just did. What a scumbag!"

There are few things that will give your Facebook friends a migraine faster than vaguebooking. Something else to consider is that, once seen, it can't be unseen.

So that time you got really mad at your ex for being a "scumbag" and posted about it can't be taken back if you and your ex end up getting back together. And don't be surprised when GramGram brings it up at Thanksgiving dinner.
