This woman is currently (as in literally RIGHT NOW) having a baby, and her Facebook posts are out of control.
“Headed to the hospital”
(picture of the outside of the hospital)
(picture of her hospital room)
“I have an IV in my arm”
(picture of her husband)
“The nurses just complimented me on my lack of stretch marks”
“Here we go”
“Apparently I’m contracting”
(picture of her husband rubbing her feet)
“My water is broken”
I’m about to hide her posts from my newsfeed before she starts announcing how much she’s dilated.
What’s the most ridiculous/annoying thing you’ve seen on Facebook today, Bees?

How annoying!… I have a friend who is constantly posting to FB. Whether she just woke up, if she’s at Starbucks, if she’s getting her nails done, if it’s super windy… Whatever! I don’t care!

This is Generation Over-Share. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. I don’t get it. (shakes head)
Maybe I’m too old for this shit.
That must be it.

Ewwwwww! That’s foul.
Hm I don’t necessarily thing it’s an age thing. I’ve never ever shared much on fb, I don’t even let people check me in anywhere. (I’m 26 and have been on it since I was maybe 20). And I know many older and much older people who do over-share.

@Regina Phalange: Oh lord. That is horrendous!
I’ve hidden or deleted most of my worst offenders. However I do have one friend who I recently became reconnected with. Our parents were college friends and we used to go on family trips together. I’m pretty crazy liberal but she’s like off the charts! I don’t know how she has time, but she seriously protests EVERYTHING. She’s laying it on THICK several times a week, guilting people into going to protests every freaking weekend. Some of them are just so complicated, I don’t even understand the issue.
There’s another few friends who are addicted to hashtags. WHY does everything have to be hashtagged? One posted a pick of her two sons napping together and literally… this was the caption:
Name1 & Name2 #napping #brothers #9yearagedifference #dontcare
Don’t care? Don’t care about what?

@MexiPino: Omg I have a friend who hashtags everything too! AND her hashtags are grammatically incorrect! Like #sibling’s #newstuffs #gratituity (when she means gratitude!). Ugh.

Omg I had a Facebook friend give updates on how dilated she was. I get that it’s an exciting time, but put down the phone! Nobody except your doctor wants a play by play of how far your lady parts are stretching!

@Regina Phalange: Ick. Some things should be private. I felt bad enough watching Duchess Kate stand around answering press questions little more than 24 hours after giving birth. Get that woman in a car and into some privacy so she can bond with her baby in peace. As for the royal vagina-watch 2013, thank goodness it’s over and we can enjoy millions of baby pictures.
You’ll know the chick is actually in labor when she shuts up. But likely then she’ll get an epi so she can continue posting. She probably thinks a half in/half out shot in the middle of delivery is appropriate. Yuck!! Block her for the next 24 hours just to be safe. Birth is beautiful but I don’t want to see your hoo-hah stretched to its tearing point, thank you.

@Regina Phalange: O.M.G. Seriously? BLOCK!

Uhm seriously I know way too many people having babies who feel the need to post updates on facebook about it. “almost to the hospital!” “checking in!” “in labor!” “Just got my epidural!” “omg this is so crazy worst pain of my life!”
One of them today posted this morning how dilated/effaced/etc she was. No joke.
I’m sorry but when I had a baby, facebook was the last thing on my mind!
Post # 13
Yeah… when my sister had a (scheduled) C-section. Know what we posted? “I’m going to become a mommy (or auntie in my case) today!” then, many hours later, the first picture of them as a family (mom’s face watching dad holding the baby- yay for awesome nurses with mad photography skills!). My caption was “So the strangest thing happened today….” That’s it. It’s gonna happen, then it happened. Nobody needs a play by play!

Or you could have the opposite…a friend of mine had her baby and made no mention of it on Facebook…for over a month! We were all like uh…you still got that baby in there??

I was so sick of posts like this, along with annoying/complaining/pity seeking people that tonight I deactivated my Facebook for the first time. I figure it will be good for me to get a break from all of that nonsense. People need to stop thinking Facebook is their diary!

Definitely a societal thing rather than an age thing. My mother now that she discovered facebook overshares EVERYTHING. It makes me insane, especially when she tries to overshare my life with her friends. Grrr. If I didn’t tell facebook what in the hell makes you think it’s okay for you to announce it to the internet?! Oy vey.
