I’ve posted about this many times on social media, but I still encounter grown adults on a daily basis who have absolutely no idea how to use the proper forms of common words.

Some people say “Whatever, it’s only Facebook!” But Facebook and your other social media pages are an extension of your real life persona. Your social media presence can help determine what job you do or don’t get, who you do or don’t date, and how people perceive you in general. If you think it’s not important – think again.

This will be quick and simple, but necessary.

You’re/Your

You’re = You are, so if you’re complimenting someone it’s “you’re pretty,” not “your pretty.”

Your = Something you possess, your car, your shirt, your phone.

Their/They’re/There

Their = Shows possession. “Their house,” not “There house” or “They’re house.”

They’re = “They are” conjugated into one word. “They are going out.”

There = A place, location, direction, etc.

To/Too/Two

To = Going TO a place.

Too = Also. “I did that too,” not “I did that to.”

Two = The number 2…this one should be easy.

Its/It’s

Its = Possessive. A car’s tires = “Its tires.”

It’s = It is, smashed into one word. “It’s hot out!”

See how simple it is? 🙂
