With social media etiquette in mind, cue some tips from Debrett's, the 'modern authority on all matters etiquette, taste and achievement' (their words, not ours).
Warning: we're all guilty of some of these, celebs included:
Birthdays, weddings and engagements
According to Debrett's they're not 'virtual' events.
"Always send birthday cards or call your friends when there's important or special news."
"Don't post a glamour, vintage-style or re-touched photo on Facebook; your narcissism will be nakedly obvious. Opt for a recent, unposed snapshot."
All those seflie-loving celebs might not like this one.
"Do some housekeeping on your Facebook wall."
"If old friends are posting embarrassing jokes or incriminating pictures, remove them, or even ask friends if they would consider doing so."
"It might be awkward, but you don't want your profile to be dogged by your past."
It's a perfect time for a spring clean.
"Don't post minute-by-minute updates to your relationship status."
"Relationships are subtle, complex and dynamic; a 'single' update could be a sledgehammer blow to any rapprochement."
"It's probably safer to remove the relationship status line."
"Think carefully about your profile picture - if you don't want to see it in your local newspaper, don't put it online."
Better get that snap with you in your beer helmet changed then.
