For those Bees that are also on the world of facebook, what are your Pet Peeves about it?
I just received a message from a woman who I know I do not know.
“I friended you a week ago and I noticed that you did not add me in return. We have 14 friends in common. Why won’t you add me?”
Because I don’t know who you are! I’m not looking for a growing friend list and I use facebook as a way to keep in touch with distant family and friends. I didn’t reply back but I’m just annoyed that just because we have friends in common, we need to be linked. I even asked a friend just to check to see if I just didn’t recognize this person and she says, oh I have no idea who it is, I just add anyone. I’ve noticed that her picture is her business card so I’m assuming its more of a networking thing but isn’t that what Linkedin is for?

WTF?! Lol, that is crazy! People are so weird about Facebook.

Oh I have a ton!
People who clutter up my feed with pictures of their food. Who cares what you ate at Applebee’s last night! I always hide them.
When people always post statuses that are just them bitching about something or other. Hide them too.
Wedding related, I know a girl who got engaged last year and her wedding is in September and EVERY STATUS gets related to weddings in some way. “It’s so easy to pick paint colors for your house when you and your fiance are on the same page! Same with wedding colors!” Ugh. I mean nobody cares about your wedding as much as you do.
Also, passive aggressive call outs. “SO MAD RIGHT NOW! I’m way too good for this! I’m through with you!”

This is my favorite comic ever about facebook
My biggest pet peeve are the vague, passive aggressive status updates.

Ugh, I hate when people do that! What are we going to talk about? How we have a couple friends in common? Sweeet….
I don’t like when I add someone from high school or college and then all their posts are ridiculously annoying. LIKE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS AND $YMBOL$ LOLZZZZZ!

@Pupperoni: Wow, just wow. I cannot IMAGINE doing that. If people I don’t konw who have a lot of friends in common with me send me a friend request, I do usually accept, but I put them on a list that gets a very limited view of my profile. I don’t want to offend someone who has a lot of friends in common with me, but I don’t want strangers knowing all my business either.
I REALLY hated Farmville, etc. until I learned how to block those updates from my news feed. I have one or two “friends” whose updates I also block because they are so annoying.
I also can’t stand being asked to join causes, especially ones I’m not thrilled about. I just ignore them along with all the game requests, and sending hearts, etc., etc., etc.
EDIT (more pet peeves!): I hate reading about how so and so is DONE with that crazy wife/husband/bf/gf and is looking for an apartment and then seeing I <3 my baby on their page two weeks later.
I also hate reading posts with the F-word on middle and high schoolers’walls. REALLY?

Top two, no question:
1) people who post pathetic/cryptic status updates. If you post “_____ is sad today :(” or “_____ is so done with women. not worth the heartache.” you’re an asshole. Sorry… but that is how I see it. CLEARLY what you are doing is asking people to flood you with “omg are you ok?!” “what’s wrong?” “what can I do?” comments. It annoys the crap out of me. Be a grown up. If you’re sad, deal with it. Call a friend. Don’t fish for comments on facebook. (Note: i do give a lot more leeway if the message gives full information. Like “___ is sad today because I got in a car accident” or something… ok. at least it is informational and not just fishing for people to ask you what is wrong)
2) stalkers. my Future Father-In-Law and his wife are ALL UP IN my wall and it annoys the crap out of me. You don’t need to post on everything I do and comment on every picture!

On a serious note, anyone see the article that Mark Zuckerberg was being stalked on facebook? Scary!

Putting your LIFE story on FB.
“oh, I have a gyno appointment today, WISH ME LUCK!”
Or things about your: divorce, living situation, poops, how much you hate “so&so”, etc. I could give real examples, but I won’t.

LoL tHaT iZ sO wEiRd <– that required a lot of concentration, and is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves. Just type normally, it’s not cute! And as I’ve just found out, not easy.

when people get off topic of your status updates with their comments.
“ahh what a beautiful day”
-(comment) hey are you going to the party next weekend at so and so’s house?
Ask me on my wall, don’t ass up beautiful day status update.

@LGenz: lol i’ve seen that before, but it was totally worth another read. Love it!!

OH MY GOODNESS I thought of another one, and this one might be my number one: when people post a status, and then comment on their OWN status like one minute later almost in response to themselves? It’s almost like they think everyone wants to hear every thought in their head.

I’m personally not a fan of the FB chat. I really only use it to talk to Fiance when we are apart, but I hate being all anxious about people starting chats with me. Like, some random friend of my mom’s will pop up a chat with me while I’m chatting with Fiance. What in the world are we suppose to talk about?!
An old highschool friend recently had a baby and posted VERY graphic pictures. Blood, guts, and all. I was horrified. Her whole album has a bunch of comments, except for those 4-5 pictures. I think she doesn’t realize that people are not as comfortable seeing her bloody, fresh-out-the-womb baby as she is.

@ohheavenlyday: Ugh. I have a friend who does this. Her status updates are usually paragraphs. and then she willl add another (or even two) paragraph long replies TO HERSELF.
She’s one of those whose updates I have hidden from my wall.
