Why do so many people post random passive aggressive facebook statuses?

No, but I do have friends who post crap like “sad day :(” and then of course everyone is all “OMG, what happened?!” and then it’s “Don’t want to talk about it”.

 

….then why did you bring it up?!

Everyone has that friend (/group of friends…) who takes Facebook way too seriously, or makes everything into an argument, or mistakes the Internet for his/her own personal soapbox.

Sometimes, when I see a completely ignorant post about anti-vaccination, or aggressive in-your-face patriotism, or misogyny, or whatever the unsavory flavor of the week happens to be, I WANT to jump in and call the poster out, but then I remember that I don’t want to be That Person who starts fights on Facebook.

So I preach to the choir (my FI) for a few minutes and move on.

Ugh this is one of the worst FB offenses ever. I wish I had the guts to call people out on it. I’m not a violent person but the image of slapping the person silly often comes to mind when I see these posts.

I’ve started calling people out when they do crap like this. <br /><br />”Aw, I love when you post vague facebook statuses so everyone will ask about it. So fun!”

Because they want to push your buttons, and it works!

Songstress_7:  There is so much of this anymore. To me it indicates a certain level of emotional immaturity and poor communciation skills AT BEST. At worst, it’s a pathetic, calculated attention getting ploy. I think many people were not given enough attention in their formative years and they seek it badly as an adult to overcompensate for the lack. Just my 2 cents.

I’m friends with my cousin’s (ex?) gf. This girl is a trainwreck. I want to unfriend her so bad, but at the same time I just can’t look away. The other day she multiple selfies with a black eye saying, “Smiling thru the pain!” And of course everyone was like, OMG what happened!? And she’s like “I don’t want to put that out in the public, PM me!” Ok? So it’s cool that everyone can see you have a black eye and make all the assumptions that they want then?

On top of that, she’s constantly trying to fight people. Literally. She’ll post statuses like “rachet ass hoes better mind their GD business” — to which said “rachet hoe” will respond — to which she will post a time and place she would like to meet to fight. Like really?! This girl is 25 years old with TWO kids that have been taken by CPS. COME ON. I just have to laugh because most of my friends are married, have higher degrees, and all their posts are of them baking or of their babies… her on the other hand it’s always drama and quotes like (the most recent) “I think I’m afraid to be happy, because whenever I get too happy something bad always happens.” Then pics of her hanging out with her kids at Burger King, because she’s only allowed to get them w/ supervised visits. That’s the ONLY place she takes them. Mom of the year here people.

I think some people just like to fight. I’ve seen all sorts of personal fights on Facebook and I always find it weird. Why would you want everyone to see that?! It’s so awkward to read.

I have A 3 strikes rule. If you post 3 ob noxious messages on fb like that you are deleted lol. i can’t stand passive aggressive or cryptic statuses (eg ugh can’t believe it! Then everyone asks what happened and they never comment back or respond with ill PM you!)

all in all, Facebook is dumb and has created an obnoxious culture of egocentric over sharers.
