If you have the irresistible urge to open your heart or just vent frustration on Facebook, you must be prepared to comply with the new rules.
The coming new standards will not tolerate inappropriate content and such scribble will be promptly deleted. Indeed, in serious cases the unlucky or actually stupid user may be banned, as the ultimate punishment.
Given the recent wave of terrorism by extremist organizations and their reported use of the social media, especially Facebook, the restrictions are understandable.
Limitations will be imposed on other aspects of what is allowed and what will be frowned upon on Facebook.
It will be prohibited the publishing of material reeking with explicit sexual content in the shape of video, photo or any other form.
Actually, the Internet is already saturated with sites offering smut for almost every taste. At least that's what we read and hear by the gurus of the media. And they have the expertise in digging for "truth" and reliable data. At least that's what they are telling us.
For the average patron of Facebook, and they are the majority, the new rules will mean very little. There are no restrictions planned for describing mundane everyday tidbits, writing about visiting aunt Josephine and the strange habits of a lonely goldfish swimming in a bowl the size of a smaller cabbage.
So, if you must, if you have nothing better to do, go and keep busy with Facebook. Sooner or later there will be something more interesting to watch on CBC, or participating in a Easter egg hunt in your local community park.
