For the first time today, I realized that people can place pronunciation guides in their Facebook homepage profile.
For example, I could phonetically spell out “Curtsinger” so people don’t pronounce it “Crutsinjer,” which is very popular among customer service representatives and hotel registration desk employees.
But it’s my opinion that anyone who isn’t sure how to pronounce my last name probably shouldn’t be on my Facebook list.
On Twitter or Instagram? Sure. I follow people who I don’t know and whose name I would probably butcher if I met them on the street. We simply share common interests.
But Facebook? These are my peeps. No pronunciation guide for you.
