Can you relate to this amusing look at people who 'quit Facebook?'

Awkward and all too familiar — we couldn't help but laugh when College Humor offered up this comical bit of truth.

  • Facebook, Twitter, Instagram — they're supposed to be fun places to interact with friends or acquaintances. Well ... socially. Social media should be mostly for fun and networking. Some people, however, take things a little too seriously.

  • Would you behave at a party the way you behave on Facebook? This humorous display shows a man very publicly announcing his exit from "the party" (aka Facebook) — not a simple goodbye but a loud trumpet followed by a neverending diatribe as to why he is too good to be at the party.

  • However, his true friends can still find him at a "better party" across the street (another social media outlet far superior to Facebook).

  • Meanwhile, other partygoers are hardly paying any attention to this grand exit.

  • Seconds after leaving "for good," the man returns holding a baby. "Good news, everyone!"

  • Imagine how awkward it would be if people behaved in person the way they behave on Facebook and other social media outlets?

  • Here are a few signs you may be taking your social media ventures a bit too seriously:

    • Grand, dramatic exits. You publicly leave for good — then come right back, of course.

    • You're easily offended by others' posts, comments or lack of personal interaction with you.

    • When offended (or feeling a bit passive-aggressive), you delete or block others only to "re-friend" them later. Or worse, you do this more than once. Instead, consider discussing your hurt feelings in person.

    • You use social media the way you use journals or diaries — the ones with locks on them. Your whole personal life is on display for everyone.

    • You post passive-aggressive statements, quotes or memes that are obviously pointed at other people. Awkward. These make everyone wonder if your comments are directed toward them, eliciting all sorts of unnecessary apologies.

    • Vague posts to get attention. You post just enough information to make everyone concerned and ask questions about your well-being.

  • Maybe you've done one or two of these things — occasionally. Just don't do this stuff all the time. Keep your social media experience drama free, and make an effort to keep your family's social media time positive.
