Rules for Social sites

Should you reject a friend on MySpace?

How do you ward off an [old flame] on Facebook?

Have no fear. Britain’s etiquette bible has come to the rescue for social networkers who are at a loss about how to behave with online decorum…

The golden rules compiled by Debrett’s are:

  1. You don’t have to make friends with people you don’t know. Think before you poke.
  2. Wait 24 hours before accepting or removing someone as a friend. The delay will help you gather your thoughts.
  3. Birthdays, engagements and weddings are not “virtual” events. Always send cards or phone friends when there is an important event.
  4. Think before posting a friend’s photo what you would feel like if it was you.
  5. Think carefully about your profile picture. Would you want it to be appearing in your local newspaper?
