Whether you are using your smartphone at a party or have just arrived at home – at one point you will most likely find yourself drunk and stumbling around on the inter-webs. Here are some mistakes to avoid when taking the party to the internet.
Boundless typos – You could call me a grammar nazi. Tweets, status updates, blog posts and IM conversations full of drunken typos frustrate me to no end. Keep the slurring to your voice and not the internet.
Announcing to the internet that you are drunk – It’s a big giveaway that a party sucks when everyone is on their phones broadcasting how drunk they are. Believe me, your grammar mikstakes r prooof enouhg.
Random spamming - Drunk surfing is at its lowest point when it involves sloppily over-commenting on Facebook, blogs and Twitter. This includes responding to tweets that don’t warrant a response, liking every status update in your timeline or mentioning a celebrity in a dozen tweets hoping for a response. HINT: It won’t happen. PR staff sleeps, too.
Over-sharing – Drinking causes people to say a lot of things that they don’t mean which can be dangerous when mixed with the internet. It’s public, permanent and frankly the internet doesn’t forget things like: “I don’t care if he is bad for me, I want my ex back – I’m so alone.”
Demanding video chats – Demanding your boss to have a video chat at 3 AM isn’t a great idea even though it may seem like one at the time.
If you must surf the web hammered, stick to ChatRoulette. It’s the one place on the internet where you need not worry about embarrassing yourself. Just watch out for the penises. And the Jonas Brothers.
