    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee was going to offer a speech class for its workers next month to do just that, until it got canceled.

(CNN) - Whether you're still looking for a special someone, or about to celebrate Valentine's day in style with your sweetheart, there are some digital do's and don't's to keep in mind.

Thanks to social media the details of budding relationships can quickly be amplified through an entire list of connections and that can really squash a spark.  Online etiquette expert, Julie Spira says with courtship getting digital, it's created a new list of do's and don'ts.

"Like on a first date, do put that smartphone down.  It sends a bad message to your date, that maybe there's someone more important than the person sitting across the table from you," says Julie Spira.

Don't post all of those early date details on Twitter or Facebook.  "In the early stages of a relationship, share very little about what's going on with your new beau. The reason is, you're dating people, he's dating people, we don't know how many people each other is dating until you've become exclusive and of course had that talk," says Spira.

For those in a relationship on Valentine's Day, don't lose friends and followers by oversharing.

"If you're posting every hour your play-by-play about your romantic rendezvous -- arriving at the hotel, seeing the flowers in the room, going to dinner, sipping champagne -- you know, it tends to be a little too much," says Spira.

And do keep in mind who might be on your sweetheart's list of Facebook friends co-workers, a boss, family members, even parents.  Those wall posts you think are sweet could be downright embarrassing to your valentine.
