The 10 Commandments of Facebook for Teens
- Thou shall use Facebook as if God sees everything you do. He already does.
- Thou shall not connect with random strangers. The world is a dangerous place, and not everyone is who they say they are.
- Thou shall not spend more time on Facebook than with actual people. Nothing can replace friendships in real life.
- Thou shall not use God’s name in vain, even in abbreviated form. You might be thinking “oh my goodness”, but no one else reads OMG that way.
- Thou shall use Facebook to build up and not tear down. See Ephesians 4:29.
- Thou shall not create fake profiles to live a double-life. That’s just dumb.
- Thou shall not go selfie-crazy. We all know you took 20 pics before you posted the one that made you look “just right”.
- Thou shall not be ashamed of Jesus. No, you don’t have to be annoying about it (like for Jesus, ignore for Satan…share in 3 seconds and God will bless you today!), but you can’t hide your light, either.
- Thou shall not post vague rants. (I can’t believe you did this to me…It’s nice to know who your true friends are.) We all know you are just looking for attention.
- Thou shall remember that people see what you post, like, and comment on. The internet is already full of garbage. Don’t contribute to it.
- Thou shall not ask people to rate you or like if they’d date you. Pretty darn sure no wedding speech will ever begin with “I knew he was the one when he liked my post back in 2014”. Seriously. It makes you look desperate, it makes them look lame.
Wise up my friends, and don’t live like the rest of the world.
