The De-Tagging Dilemma. Facebook Ettiquette

Written by Gary

Facebook like whoa.

We have all had our share of embarrassing Facebook photos. I can only speak for myself but I am constantly bombarded by the dilemma of de-tagging. Especially when someone comments on your grammar or the third nipple that you only just realized you had after it becomes public. If you de-tag a photo after a bunch of people saw it you are admitting defeat.

I say: Let our Facebook profiles be as true to life as we are. If we have an ugly day–let it be immortalized for all to see. People like to pretend their Facebook profiles are meant to sell a dream version of who they are. Since we aren’t close to most of our Facebook friends we can create a perfect version of ourselves. We can pretend that every night we are going out snapping photos with all of our pretty friends in exotic locales. The truth is we are sitting home alone drinking boxed wine watching re-runs of Felicity and crying.

I say own it. Lets stop de-tagging and show the world all of our sides whether good, ugly, or just down right disturbing.
