A Social Media Guide for Celebrity Parents (and Really All of Us)

Tip #4 - Do Not Tweet Your Bikini Pics

This is one part an open letter to celebrities, one part public service announcement, and a generous pinch of a reminder to all parents who engage in social media. There are certain things you should refrain from doing and sharing on the internet.

As our culture participates in social media tools such as Twitter and Facebook, there are many who are guilty of the over-share, the accidental R-rated image, or the just plain tacky tweet. And these social media faux pas are even worse when celeb parents are behind the wheel of these social media accounts.

Check out these 13 tips of things NOT to do on Twitter and Facebook regardless if you are famous or not.

    Tip #1 - Make Sure Your Wife Isn't Naked in TwitPics
    Last year Dean McDermott tweeted a photo that seemed innocent enough of his son Liam. But there was something going on in the background, his wife Tori Spellings' boobs. On the right side of the frame, Tori's breasts were clearly visible. But Tori forgave her Twitter happy hubby telling CNN, "It's like, what am I going to do? I am a mom, I was nursing my baby. [Dean] was so devastated about it that I couldn't be mad. I mean it was genuinely an accident."

    Tip #2 -Don't Make a Jab At the Others with Different Needs to Your 7 Million Followers
    50 Cent made quite a faux pas when he recently tweeted a response to a follower saying, "Yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic." This did not sit well with the general public and especially parents. High profile autism activists like Holly Robinson Peete lashed back. She wrote in an open letter to 50 Cent, "Do you even know what autism is? And what exactly does "autistic" look like? Do you know how wildly prevalent autism is? 1 in 88 have it. That's 1 in 54 boys. Families suffer a social stigma you will never know. It is a financial and emotional drain for millions..." 50 Cent later apologized for his tacky tweet, but this just shows, think before you tweet people!

    Tip #4 -Don't Tweet About Your Sex Life
    Kendra Wilkinson is a sex symbol, so it makes sense that she would bring the sexy into her tweets as well. She once tweeted, "Henry Baskett u horny devil. I just wanna go to sleep. Damnit. Well ok. Hahahahahaha." And that is just one of many. If you want to send sexy tweets to your significant other just text it to them or tell them in person, you needn't share with hundreds of thousands of followers online.

    Tip #13 -Don't Make It Obvious Its Not YOU Doing the Tweeting
    People who follow you on Twitter feel like they have a special connection to you. You are sharing your thoughts, tasks and moments from your day. But many a time a celebrity isn't the one doing the tweeting, they have "people" who do it for them. But sometimes it becomes plainly obvious that it isn't the celebrity doing the tweeting, like Kourtney Kardashian promoting her show while in labor. Yeah, I doubt she took the time mid contraction to tweet.
