As my mom says about social networks “metel ka2ano we2ef 3ala el sate7 w 3am ysarekh la ahel el 7ara w ykhaberoun shou sar ma3o” and that’s true. Why? Keep in mind that there is no manual with strict rules about what to post online and what not, it all depends on you and your wish to keep stuff private or not. Now let’s go back to the “7ara” part. As in any neighborhood, there is the closest and friendliest neighbor and there is the most annoying neighbor; so is the case with our online list of friends, followers, and circles. Those lists contain people we know from school, university, work, the “ex”, even people we might not know personally, relatives, etc. So, technically, no one stands on the roof top of his house and shouts his news and updates, then why do we do that online?

Let’s elaborate more. Would any girl put her picture in swimsuit on the roof top of her house? elmante2 bi2oul la2. Then why does she post it on her profile, where most of the people don’t care about her activities? Or, if someone is in a relationship, would they shout and scream in their neighborhood telling everyone that they are in a relationship? also elmante2 bi2oul la2. Then why that status keeps changing or your profile, when your “friends” really don’t care?

Or let’s say you’re out with your friends and your parents call you to ask where you are, and check on you; whether you tell them or not, you turn to  your friends and complain about your parents intruding your privacy; but you check in on foursquare and don’t care about privacy.

If you had a shower, would you call all your friends and tell them? Is showering an accomplishment? Or is it something you rarely do? Then why tweet it?

But, to me, the most irritating online behavior is “tobyeed el tanajer”. “yiii shou helou festanik w lebe2lik ktir” says a girl to another, but in fact she’s so envious la daraje enou farjet el soura lal kel yalli 7awalaye w 2eletloun “bisharafkoun sheyfeen ashna3, w mfakra 7ala shi”. Layki ya “7abibte” fike mata3mele comment, mannik majboura, tsarafy ka2anik mashefti hal post w bala matetzeke. 3anjad enou “tobyeed el tanajer” ktir zeyed hal iyem, khasatan laman nkoun mna3ref enou A mesh ktir metfe2 ma3 B bel 7ayet el tabi3iye, bas byetghazalou bi ba3doun edem el jameheer.

Another irritating online behavior is the double personalities people have, i.e. online they show as someone, and in real life they are someone else. Some show as very smart when they post something online, but in real life they are not that smart. Anyway, after all they had time to google before tweeting, posting or replying. Another group of people are those who we know really well, you know their standards, their likes and dislikes; but all of those disappear when they are online. For example, and this is a real example of someone I know, someone who never curses, but brags online about watching an uncensored movie kalimetou men el zenar w nezil.

Am sure there are so many other examples/situations. Please share them.
