@HeatherD16:  People that post non-stop about their kids’ bowel movements….why would you think anyone besides grandparents would want to know that.

Basically I’m done with people who complain generally. About work or people. I tend to de-friend people who spend too much time being like “I hate people who are petty. I’m done with jealous girls.” Well, I’ll be darned, because I really like petty jealous girls. Please, save your passive-aggressive stuff for someone else.

This is also going to sound admittedly snobby, but I really hate people who post articles that are logically faulty or kind of dumb. I ESPECIALLY hate people who post those pictures with snarky one-liners or out-of-context quotes that are meant to make a political point but end up just being ignorant and one sided. 

I do like facebook because I have many friends who post terrific articles or podcasts from around the internet, which I don’t always have time to find. I find that checking facebook, I actually LEARN. I also really like people who post interesting or well-thought-out articles that tend to take opposing viewpoints from my own. And people who post things that aren’t worth my time tend to annoy me. 

…Yes I know how snobby that sounds. But this is a general question, so don’t judge me.

@housebee:  Haha, do grandparents even want to know?

I don’t post things like that on Facebook. The only time I post anything actually is to share photos of things with friends (that we did together)!

It annoys me when people:

-use facebook as a political platform

-try to peddle their crafts/services/old crap

-don’t grasp basic grammar to the point I can’t understand their posts

-post photos of EVERY.SINGLE.THING.THEY.EAT (totally different if you try out a fancy new recipe or better yet, a pinterest fail)

-make an ambiguous passive agressive post and then refuse to elaborate when asked

-use their facebook posts to blast every personal detail, problem, or decision made.

-post selfies with the duckface

-post scantily clad and inappropriate photos

 

 

Ok, so I guess facebook just annoys me in general.  Though, I have some family members I couldn’t ‘unfriend’ without causing loads of drama so I sit back, grab some popcorn, and watch their train wreck lives unfold all over social media.

Agree with the above but one of my biggest pet peeves are the couple posts! You know like GF “I love you bo” the 2 min later BF “love you more snugglebuns” GF “No I love you more”

Ahhhhhrgh!! You live together and are both over 35!!! You really need to do this over Facebook during the few hours you are at work?!! Really?!

Photos of peoples pregnancy tummies. Don’t need to see that.

Updates about baby poo/sick.

Needlessly baiting posts about religion/politics.

Twee posts about how lovely their sister/friend/dog is.

 

 

And anyone who posts anything about Richard Dawkins which isn’t followed by “This man is a class-A Knob” is promptly hidden.

I wish there were more political discussions on facebook…because people CAN be constructive and informative and interesting through facebook as a platform.  Same with weddingbee.

Oh, and the passive-agressive “Well SOME PEOPLE are just SUCKY” or “this is so crap” or “feeling so disappointed and broken!” but with no context, and when people comment to ask what’s wrong they go “Oh, I’ll text you!”

 

Why didn’t you just text them in the first place???

@peachacid:  ahaha +++1000000

It all seems like a “let me toot my own horn” kind of deal.  Its all a joke. I have seen pictures from a ski trip and a girl posted “love skiing, top of the hill!” with a picture of her boyfriend and her. 

Well i was skiing with her that day, i know for a fact she hated it and gave up after 2 hours to go shopping instead.  So its alllllll crap and people lie to make their lives seem perfect.

Religious/political rants. Even if I agree with you, nothing will get you “hidden” faster. I come on facebook to see pictures of friends vacations and general life updates, not get irritated because you’re trying to start something with someone on facebook.

A play-by-play of ANYTHING. Your kids, your jury duty, your sucky day, your meals, your viewing of an awards show. That’s what twitter is for. If you are posting more than twice a day, you are probably posting too much.

Nasty pictures of your kids. Seriously if he poops everywhere and it is in his hair, I don’t want to see it. I have a friend who is ALWAYS posting the grossest pics of her kid. I’ve hidden her now, and I LIKE her, but dude. Ew.

Reposting some kind of inspirational sunset picture with writing on it. What is this, tumblr, and what are we, 14? Especially ones that are like “A REAL MAN… blah blah blah”.

Also, I have a friend who brings her relationship problems to facebook. I don’t really find it annoying, just sad that she has that little respect for her husband. I would never do that.

People who take and post a bajillion selfies that look EXACTLY THE SAME (on different days).  I know someone who has an entire album of selfies of her sitting in her room or in different washrooms (her house, restaurants, clubs, etc.), making the same duck face, with her eyes opened super wide to induce a clueless expression, with the angle perched like a foot above her face to make it look smaller.  They all look exactly the same and just as ridiculous!
