Haven’t seen much TMI in person but have you seen Lamebook? There are some real doozies on there. http://www.lamebook.com –hilarious!

I agree, I wouldn’t say any of your examples to a stranger, much less post it on Facebook!

Oh man, I couldn’t agree more. It also really freaked me out when my ex’s statuses (statii?) used to come up in my newsfeed talking about how horny he was. God bless the filtering settings; now I never have to see his weird updates again!

I completely agree! I had a friend update us on her nipple discharge! That’s so disgusting! I wish there was a nice way of saying “Nobody cares, or wants to know about it.”

For the dilating labor stories, I love to know because my entire family is 5 hours away so it’s awesome to know what’s going on with the baby instead of calling every five minutes.  Everything else, they can keep it! I usually update on what I’m cooking for dinner lmao!! And that’s really it.  M uses it as promotions for his club and only updates when he’s there! I guess we’re lame!

The updates that drive me INSANE are the pathetic-pity-seeking ones. I hate it when people fish for pity on any forum, but for some reason facebook just makes it worse to me. Examples of things I’ve seen (and I have actually de-friended some ppl for being debbie or donald downers): 

X hates life today.

X doesn’t understand why people enjoy hurting him. 

X : Is there ever an end to the depression?

X wants to go back to two months ago when he was happy. Depression sucks.

X is done with everything

 

etc. blech. Get a shrink and a life, and stop being so freakin whiny!

Lol, since I wrote that original post, I have to agree!!!

I also second lamebook – I spend hours on there, cracking up. People put up pics of their kids first poo in the potty! Come ON!!

I live hours from where I grew up, so I like FB for the “catching up” aspect, plus I hate to talk on the phone – but I really am over all of the TMI.

@Corgi – TOTAL Debbie Downers… ugh!

I totally agree, sometimes people do post TMI on there.

CorgiTales – Haha I have this same problem. I get so annoyed when I see people post about how their life sucks, and that they are done with everything. I’m like “Is posting this on facebook, really helping you. Go see a shrink or something.” and you see like all these comments from people below “Awe, I’m sorry. I hope you start feeling better. Cheer up.” I’m like “If they are really deppressed, you telling them to cheer up is not going to work, and if they aren’t really depressed, then why did they write this on here in the first place. To get pity that’s why.” I mean seeing it once in a great while is one thing, but I mean I see one like everyday.
Sometimes I get mad at my college friends too, because they will be like posting about how they are so heartbroken over a guy they only dated for like 3 days, and no I’m being serious, only 3 days. I guess that’s possible, but I mean like a lot of my college friends do this, and then you know the next week after that they are over it, and have moved on to the next guy, and it starts all over again.

I second the debbie downers comment, ejs!

Someone at work here posted something similar to, “I put my pencil in my ear because it was itchy and it made me laugh”… me and my other co-workers were like WTF?!

Ugh, I was JUST talking to FI about this.  I’m “friends” with a couple of people who find it necessary to update me/FB several times a day on their childrens’ potty training progress.  I DO NOT CARE how many pairs of underwear your child soiled today or if they went “pee pee on the potty.”  Arghhhh

Haha, I regularly read STFUMarrieds and STFUParents, where people post Facebook overshares. It’s how I get my kicks during the day!

I had been annoyed by all the prayer requests people had been posting because my grandma was really sick and I could have been posting about that but didn’t want to bring people down.  I didn’t post about her at all until she passed away and it felt weird when I finally did, but I realized that people wanted to say something to me and facebook was the only place they could and they wouldn’t do it unless I posted first.  I’m glad I did.
