Unliking on FB due to spelling?

zwee75 zwee75
So I LOVE this little gourmet sandwich shop near my home. So I liked them on Facebook. Well, lately, someone has taken over their PR and doesn't understand capitalization or punctuation, let alone how to spell. And they were posting every day like this. I had to unlike them.

Have you ever done similar?

Or have you unfriended someone? At least you can unsubscribe from a friend, ya know?!

Honestly, if someone doesn't capitalize or punctuate correctly in most cases it really doesn't bother me. Especially to the extent of un-liking them on Facebook. I get they are a business and should be professional, but to me on a personal level it does not bother me. Half the time when I see a sign up for a business and they spell something wrong, I just laugh it off.

However, what does bother me, is when people always talk with abbreviations for every word just about.

example "like omg u suk u got a ipad2 i r like so jealous" I can't converse with people who talk like that all the time.

I've never done that, but as CMM said I usually laugh when there's misspelling for businesses, but you could always point it out on their wall and tell them they could lose business for misspelling-incorrect grammer.

I had a client who did a FB promo in all-caps. I had to tell them to remove it. They didn't realize they were yelling.

It usually doesn't bother me that much. I'll notice, but unless it's really bad I won't bother unliking them.

As long as you can read it I don't see the issue.

If it's a business doing it, I'd definitely un-like them.

If it's a person, I'd just hide all their posts.

It really grinds my gears when someone makes lots of spelling/punctuation/g rammar mistakes. A few is totally cool, I make them too, but when it's a constant thing it makes them sound, pardon me, a little unintelligent. It's less important if it's just a friend; then it's just a little annoying. But if it's a business, bad spelling and grammar is unprofessional

I personally don't use facebook. Well, I used it when it was only among few colleges. I stopped once they started to include any high school students.

If it's someone related to the family, or extended family, I just switch the tab and unsubscribe to their posts. We're still friends, but I don't have to see it. It keeps my family from getting on me about it.

im not too big on punctuation (apostrophes, correct quotes, semi-colons, etc) i think mostly because of my job (all reports are caps lock, only certain punctuation is allowed,) but spelling is a big thing. i have un-liked/un-friended people because they cant spell.

It used to bug the hell out of me, but lately I've given up. Capitalization and spelling are often ignored online. No one gets "your" vs "you're" right. No one uses "she" vs "her" correctly and in the last decade or so the new, incorrect usage has become "correct". The "ue" are gone from the end of catalogue and dialogue. It's over. The English language surrenders. (Don't mind me, I'm an English major. )

Eh, most people I know unfriend others because they're hypersensitive zeeps who take everything the wrong way.

I know a couple of people who do not use language properly, but they don't post often, so it's a non-issue.

A business not knowing how to use proper language structure is completely unprofessional and does not instill any sort of confidence in their services - if they can't be bothered to proofread, what else are they not doing right?
