10 Things Facebook Is Neither the Time Nor The Place For

You can now take down your patama post, colonoscopy report, and chia seed breakfast shot, thanks very much.

1. Drunk party photos. Quick, delete them now! Trust, your next job is at stake.

2. Declarations that you're doing absolutely nothing interesting. "Chillin' on the sofa with my bbz." OH MY GOD, HAS ANYONE EVER DONE THAT BEFORE?!

3. Small-talk. "What time are you coming over tonight?" = texting territory.

4. Bitching about your work colleagues/boss. Always awkward when you realize that private account of yours wasn't so private after being laid off.

5. Medical exam results. Anything kept confidential in a hospital should not be paraded on social media, thankyouverymuch. 

6. Passive aggressiveness. "It really pisses me off when people you thought were your friends are completely two-faced and stab you in the back. You know who you are." You may as well have tagged them in the bloody thing now, just give it up and text them.

7. Whether or not you went to the gym tonight. Let's face it. Your 300+ friends are your friends (or at least your vague acquaintances). They're not your personal trainers. So they probably don't care how many miles you ran on the treadmill this evening.

8. Healthy food snaps. You're unlikely to post a picture of your chicken nuggets and large fries, right? So stop making the rest of us feel bad for not being able to afford a diet full of chia seeds, quinoa, and kale. CHEERS.

9. Updates on the weather. Honestly, you don't need to tell everyone on your Facebook friend list that it's sweltering hot outside. They're probably already sweating buckets right now.

10. Fishing for compliments. You don't need to wait for people to validate you. Just #LikeYourself!

But don't worry. There are still a load of things Facebook IS the time and place for. Namely:

- Humble brags about your generally great life.
- The occasional #hugot
- Instagram pictures of brunch.
- Anything #kilig.
- Regularly stalking people you no longer associate with in real life.
