Your Social Media Rights

Everyone knows the Miranda Rights cops recite when they arrest someone.

If not (what rock have you been under?), here they are:

Your Miranda Rights
  • You have the right to remain silent.
  • Anything you say or do can and will be held against you in a court of law.
  • You have the right to speak to an attorney.
  • If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.
  • Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?
For some unknown reason I got to thinking about the perils of social media and the Miranda Rights came to mind. Surely the two shouldn't be related because social media is FUN! Ahem.

Nevertheless, I give you:

Your Social Media Rights
  • You have the right not to Comment.
  • Anything you Tweet or Pin can and will be held against you on Facebook.
  • You have the right to connect with an attorney on LinkedIn.
  • If you cannot find anyone on Google+, you may peruse Instagram.
  • Do you understand how the Klout algorithm works as it has been explained to you?
And because this is so clever and witty and gosh darnit! pin-able, I give you:

Tell me what you think!

I am totally hooking this up with Yeah Write,
cuz this shiz needs to be seen!
Love you, YeahWriters!


  1. Bahahaha! Love it! And no, I never understood how klout came up with my score so I stopped using it.

  2. Did you create these Rights?
    Love it!

  3. You know I had to come "pin" this, right? Haha! Very clever, I like this one a lot! I have no idea what Klout is but I think I'm the only one. :)

  4. I'm a huge fan of having the right not to comment. Silence saves me everytime. I usually regret typing something, but I never regret shutting up. Great post.

    1. I mostly mean that for Facebook comments. Geez, ppl on Facebook...

  5. Finally! Someone laid it all out. Nice post!

  6. So funny! I am so impressed that you came up with this. I love the second one.

    Visiting from SITS!

    1. I'm pretty impressed that I came up with it too! ;-)

  7. Too funny, especially about Twitter & Pinterest!

  8. Very fun. Thanks for sharing.
