Social networking platforms allow us to express ourselves. In just a few clicks, we get to share our likes, dislikes, experiences, and portraits to a lot of people. Also, because of how convenient we get to use these social media apps, we tend to post anything we feel like posting.
The downside on this though, we tend to post anything, even the ones that we shouldn’t be posting in the first place. Remember, what we post on the internet, stays on the internet.
With that being said, here are the 5 photos you shouldn’t post on your social networking account.
5 Photos You Shouldn’t Post on Your Social Networking Account
Here is the quick rundown of the 5 photos. For further discussion on this, scroll down for more.
- Offensive Remarks
- Someone’s Artwork
- Drunken Shots
- Candid Photos Without Subjects’ Permission
#1: Offensive Remarks
Today, everyone’s getting offended about something. Most of the time, it’s a good thing since people are becoming open to critical issues in our society. However, some are just in it for the conflicts and having that high and mighty sense of being right.
With this, refrain from posting any racist, homophobic, fatphobic, and other types of offensive content. By doing this, you won’t get any backlash from your acquaintances and followers.
#2: Someone’s Artwork
An artist takes a lot of time and effort to make a compelling piece. Stop disrespecting artists by putting up their content on your profile and even crediting yourself to the piece. Instead of uploading the artworks, share the work from the artist’s account instead.
#3: Drunken Shots
Ever had those wild and crazy party nights?
There’s nothing wrong with partying, but posting it will lead you to some trouble. Embarrassing photos such as you chugging a whole bottle of beer in one sitting could lead to a ruined professional reputation and an awkward interaction with your acquaintances.
If you want to put your security in jeopardy, go ahead and post photos of your earnings. But if you don’t want to get into any trouble, then don’t post anything that might attract scammers and criminals.
#5: Candid Photos Without Subjects’ Permission
Let’s say you’ve taken a funny photo of a friend. Before posting, actually ask the person first on messenger if he/she is comfortable with it. If the person doesn’t mind it, go ahead and share it. If they don’t want the shot, then don’t upload it. Uploading photos without even considering the subject’s feelings says a lot about your personality–and not in a good way.
