Never delete the link to where it was reblogged from - that's considered very rude, and people on Tumblr get very annoyed by this.

If you are over the age of 17, you get one selfie every other week. That's it. Under 17, you're still subject to Teen Rules, which basically means you're insufferable to the rest of the internet world and therefore exempt. Go nuts, teens. But if you're an adult, you get 2 a month.
"Like" the status, but don't commentComment "congrats!"Do not Like or comment and change your settings to hide all future activity from that person
Do nothing but hide all activity
You don't want to have to deal with the 8 months of their wedding planning and wedding photos. Do yourself a big favor and save your own sanity. You can remove all future updates from that person without actually unfriending.
Only to coworkers, but never to your bossTo people you work with, if there's an urgent matterTo friends when you need to confirm dinner plans
Only to coworkers but never your boss
Ok, maybe MAYBE if it's super duper urgent, but really in that case you should just walk into your boss's office and use your mouth-speaking-hole. There's a weird power dynamic with the "Important" flag in Outlook that you cannot mess with.
Flirting with your crushIronically annoying your friendsIt is never acceptable to Poke
Ironically with your friends!
What's creepier than a Facebook Poke? Nothing! Your buddies will be weirded out and vaguely amused. Poking your crush will definitely come off as crazed and stalker-ish.
When you want them to notice something funny you're postingWhen you want them to see your band's flyer you just postedWhen you are thanking them for coming to your birthday party
Tagging someone in a flyer or promotion
Ugh! That's the worst. If you want to invite someone to your event or have them notice someone, just use the normal channels. Don't be annoying.
Yes, if it was a really good tweetNo, never
It's braggy and weird.
Email that person separately explaining your mistake, then resend email to the whole groupResend the message to the whole group without mentioning your mistakeResend the message to the whole group and add in a line about "oops I didn't reply-all this first time"Any of the above
Any of the above
This one is a real doozy. We're used to being petrified of the accidentally reply-all, but doing the opposite can be just as weird. Any of these methods work. Namaste.
No, neverSometimes, only if it's a good friendYes, if it's someone who works at your company
Only surprise gchat your good pals
Otherwise it's weird! And don't chat for work stuff (except with people who work IN your office)

Next business day, end of day
Give 'em some time, and if you have to nudge again, nudge gently. Gentle nudges.
Definitely not. That's insane.Yes, they are publicly announcing their location, thereby implying an open inviteYes, but only if it's a good friend AND it's at a bar (not a party) and you should text them first
Yes, but text first
This might be controversial, but I think it's reasonable that in some cases, you should feel free to meet up with your friend. It's gotta be case by case. Don't be a creep.
Tweet directy to the airline asking for helpTweet with a period before the airline's username so that all your friends can see your complaintSubtweet the airline by complaining without using their username
Call their customer service phone number first, and then, and ONLY THEN may you tweet directly to them
No one wants to see you tweet about your customer service problems. If you can't get help any other way, you may tweet directly to the company, but only in a polite way.
Do nothing, a response is not neededEmail the sender back to say thank youCall your mom
Call your mom
She's the only one who could possibly be sending you this, so give her a call.
Read his posts, but don't ever engagePwn the heck out of him with your awesome debating skillsUnfollow his updates
Read his posts, but don't engage
Pop that popcorn and watch his buddies go nuts arguing with him. This Facebook's best free entertainment.
Yes, but only if the account has been inactive for 6 monthsNo, it's rude to unfollow real life people. Just suck it upGo ahead and unfollow. Life's too short.
Only if their account is inactive
Sorry. You can't unfollow people you know in real life just because they're annoying. You CAN unfollow if their account is inactive and you're trying to prune off some dead accounts.
For some reason, the imperative to reply promptly to all Snapchats is an undisputed rule of the internet. I know, it's a little annoying, but the Teens have spoken. This is the rule for this service.
Quiz: Are Your Internet Manners Up To Snuff?
Pretty good. You're
Good god! Your manners are terrible! Try being nice a little. And remember: the internet is just like real life (ew) sometimes you have to put up with annoying people.
Congrats! You're a good citizen of the Internet. You probably spend way too much time on here and your real life manners may suffer, but at least you act cool on Facebook.
