Facebook Ethics is a major branch of philosophy, encompassing right conduct and good life over the electronic medium Facebook. The guiding principle of Facebook ethics is that of exercising sound judgement and morality when establishing relationships, networking, or simply keeping in touch with old friends.
Examples of breaching Facebook ethics include:
- Posting inappropriate pictures of either yourself or friends engaged in raucous behavior, binge drinking, or doing illegal drugs.
- Posting nasty comments about ex boyfriends new girlfriends at an attempt to invoke jealousy, cause pain, insult the other party
- Incessantly posting on people's walls thereby shielding other people's comments and creating a monopoly on said person's wall
- Discussing insensitive topics that could be read by other people- examples include religion, politics, and racism/sexism
- Tagging friends in pictures that are less than flattering.
