Ever have your boyfriend or girlfriend change your status on Facebook before texting, Tweeting, or simply telling you it’s over?

Does anything go on Facebook, or should there be rules about how to navigate politely? Is it rude to tag people in compromising photos without telling them, submit a friend request to someone you don’t know without explanation, or make plans with people on your wall?

Guests:

Amy Alkon, nationally syndicated advice columnist; author "I See Rude People: One woman's battle to beat some manners into impolite society"

Karen North, director of online communities program, USC’s Annenberg school of Communications and Journalism
