For the record, I don’t have a Facebook account. It’s not that I’m too cool for it, it’s simply that I’m a relatively private person and I happen to keep in touch with all the people I actually want to keep in touch with. I see no need to let hundreds of people know what I’m doing for happy hour, which band I saw this weekend, or what I thought of Obama’s speech to students across America. That said, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Facebook. I think it’s a brilliant idea and networking vehicle – it simply isn’t for me.
Sometimes, though, Facebook can get people in a lot of trouble. When you change your “status” and advertise to the world what you’re thinking, you may rub some people the wrong way. And when you do, it’s often hilarious for the rest of us. After the jump, take a look at 10 of the most awkward moments in Facebook history.
