I have a friend on Facebook who just posted a pic of his breakfast and it said: “Forgot to post this earlier. Breakfast for the day.”
It’s like he’s thinking someone is wondering what he ate for breakfast. Lol.
I couldn’t help but laugh. Why do people find posting these things so necessary?
Anyone else have a friend like this?

I have a FB friend who posts pictures of herself at the gym EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. She is training to be in some bodybuilding competition in November, ok, cool, you want to share your progress with your friends who are into that. How about you create a group for sharing that sort of thing, rather than clogging up EVERYONE’s feed with you pumping iron. LMAO

@alotlikelove: Of course. I have several friends who post what they eat every day. Unless you’re giving me a recipe with it, I don’t care.
A girl engaged to my BFs buddy uses facebook as her diary. I’m typing these word-for-word:
“Headed to work”
“We had a photographer booked but now she can’t shoot our wedding”
“My stomach is sick”
“Eating some soup, hope I can keep it down”
“Just left work”

@Baroness_Meg: yeah, those posts are overkill!!
@Mars62312: Nope, it has nothing to do with fitness! He just wants to advertise what he cooked for breakfast, lunch, dinner… maybe even snack! Lol

My FB newsfeed is 70% pictures of one of my friend’s children, and of her Instagram “A Photo a Day” pics. Worst part is I barely know her (she’s actually a friend of a friend) so I really couldn’t care much less. I want to defriend her so bad.

I have a few friends that do. Honestly, I don’t get why people post what they are eating. Unless it’s something truely unique (like a bug or a cake you made) or hilarious (inappropriate looking food) I don’t give a f*ck. I’m actually wondering if anyone cares at all.

I have friends who do the gym and meal postings too….but my favorite is a woman who constantly posts a running list of things she’s done during the day:
“Made the bed, put on some laundry, made son breakfast, cleaned up, did dishes, swept, folded laundry, baked bread, dinner is in the crockpot, put laundry away……ahhh, finally sitting down to a cup of tea!”
Seriously…EVERY DAY. It’s like she thinks if she doesn’t post it on Facebook it never happened…..like a tree falling in the forest with nobody there to hear it!

Haha I get some things that people post are pointless, but I don’t get why people get upset about it.

lol. It’s cute. Yes it does sound like he was worried that people were wondering what he had for breakfast (or perhaps that he skipped breakfast this morning!) and he wanted to set minds at rest. Not to worry – a typical breakfast was had. Phew.
I actually don’t understand 99% of food posts. If it’s not like, the most awesomest thing you ever made from scratch, I don’t care to see it. Food you ordered at a restaurant? I really don’t care. A bland typical dinner you made? I also don’t care. Is there someone out there that cares about those things?? I want to see something that’s special or different, and I try to use that to guide what to share with others. Don’t show me your many pairs of white socks. Show me your rhinestone Spongebob socks.

@MrsPuddingface: hahaha I have a friend who does the EXACT. SAME. THING. with the lists of daily accomplishments. Except not only that, but the accomplishments themselves are kind of ridiculous and judge-worthy because she lets her kid get away with absolute murder. So it’ll be things like “had to make breakfast twice because [kid] wouldn’t eat the first one, then did laundry while [kid] ran around screaming, put cookies in the oven, now hoping to get to the gym if [kid] will cooperate and actually stay in the child care area this time!” I’m like, jesus, control your kid. Or at least don’t advertise how much you suck at it!
