Social Media Sites are About Socializing

I heard a report the other day about a “secret” party that was posted on the social media site Facebook by a high school girl.  Her parents were away at a wedding for the weekend and within a few hours, the party got out of hand.  A group of people showed up, uninvited and completely trashed the place.  They threw the parents collection of Samurai swords all over the house and left some of them stuck in the walls.  A playhouse was smashed and thrown into the garden, the tv remote was microwaved and bubble bath was poured into the television. In the next few days, the gang of destroyers bragged about what they had done on their Facebook pages and were brought in for questioning.

Of course teens do silly things and I sure had my fair share of parentally void parties, but hello, don’t people get the whole point of social media sites.  It is about sharing, and when you share with one person, you share with their friends, and then friends of their friends and so on.  In fact, check out Claudia’s post about how the friend effect can keep the fire burning for outreach through social media.  This is what makes social media sites so great.  Here are some other funny, caught by Facebook stories…

The Do’s of Social Media

The Don’ts of Social Media

Indeed we could learn a few life lessons from the caught on Facebook community and remember that common sense in the digital age goes a long way when conducting ourselves on social media sites and in the social media community.
