    If you find a particular youtube video of interest, and think a friend would enjoy it too, is it considered socially polite or impolite to text them the link ?

      If they don't like it they should tell you not to send links for that type of stuff.

        I think its ok to send stuff that may pertain to a shared hobby or interest. Stay away from sending funny cat videos or other stupid youtube stuff. That can just be annoying to receive.

              I’m not that old but I do remember when we used to fax funny jokes and pictures to each other, small biz environment. Mid 80’s. Was definitely some inappropriate stuff there and you had no idea who was going to get it off the fax machine. Maybe that was part of the fun.

                  Reminds me of the early days of the first internal email system at the company I was with. The original message could be edited so some of us had fun trying to make fools of each other jacking around with the initial message to the extent of some pretty risky comments which today would get ya canned quickly. Oh the chit we didn't have to worry about back then!

                    Have a buddy that used to send me stuff thinking he was 'educating' me.....mostly political crap and gun stuff. Told him to send it to my email and quit loading up my phone. That's too much trouble he said and that pretty much ended that lol

                          If it's something funny or maybe of intrest to the party that you are sending it to, I'd say it's ok. If you're not sure they would like it, you could tell them that you have seen a video of the topic that you're discussing and would they like to have the link to it.

                          I've received things in the past that I had no interest in and politely told the sender not to send this anymore.

                          You really have to be careful what you do on the www and texting on your phone now days. It's recorded for life and there's no taking it back.

                            I guess there are friends and then there are friends. I had someone I worked with for years and was friendly with, he sent me what he thought was funny to my phone. I thought it was inappropriate and not really funny, I was really annoyed and so I banned him from calling or texting me.
                            I guess he got the message

                                I had a guy at work that liked to text porno pics. They weren't of nice looking girls, they were pics of big, fat, ugly, naked wemon. I told him to stop sending them. He said I just select all my contacts and you're on the list. I said take me off your list then!

                                Well one day he accidentally sent one to Facebook and it posted on his page. His sister called him and said you better get that picture off of Facebook before Mom sees it. He had no clue how to delete it and really couldn't do it from work without being on his computer. I thought to myself "that will teach him!"

                                    No worries doll! I grew up in the garage and pool halls with the boys and rarely (if ever) get offended by anything.

                                    Except stuff like this ...

                                    ... and knowing this group like I do, I know you're all offended WITH ME.
