Pledge Your Facebook Responsibility

Now that the new year is in full swing, I think it’s time for people to reconsider the capricious resolutions that they made to lose weight and read more. Healthy, intelligent living is awesome, but it requires a lot of work. For slackers out there looking for something easy to be proud of, I’d like to suggest that you all pledge to use Facebook more responsibly.

What does this entail? Well, there is a little bit of work, but it’s broken into tiny fragments so it seems like nothing at all on a day-to-day basis.

The most important thing to remember is that Facebook has become host to a growing number of scams. Responsibility means that you will not pass those scams on to your friends. Instead, you will take a stand by refusing to forward ridiculous rumors. Depending on your personality, you might even choose to educate others when they’re spreading hoaxes (for some, this could mean telling your friends when they are being stupid).

How do you do this? I’ll make it easy on you. Whenever you see a post on Facebook that makes you go “oh, no!,” “oh, my!,” “sexy!,” or “what the…”, open a tab in your browser and search for information about that post. Most of the time you will learn that the thing that seemed so unbelievable is, in fact, a bunch of bull.

That’s it. That’s all you have to do to become more responsible this year. So whenever someone asks how you’re improving yourself, just point them this way and tell them that you’re taking a stand against hoaxes.
