@DeathByDesign: She did delete the offending friends. The problem is, when you have a mutual friend comment on someone you aren’t friends with on FB, it still shows up in your newsfeed. Why should she delete the friend who she’s still friends with just to not see photos of an ex-friend?

I agree with the other ladies.  Hide them.  Its not worth getting upset and seeing these pictures will only make you upset.  Im sorry they werent supportive!

I understand how you feel. I am currently planning my wedding and recently had a huge falling out with my best friend of 7 years. We haven’t talked in months and she hasn’t replied to my attempts to contact her and tell her about the wedding. But I am still friends on FB with her boyfriend because he didn’t do me any wrong and I didn’t want to un-friend him just out of pettiness. But I saw that her new friend of only a year is getting married and she post on her page ” Congratulations!” and she won’t even let bygones be bygones enough to reply to my message that I am getting married. Probably for the best…but it hurts in any case. We are only human and we can’t stop emotions from overtaking us, so it is best to just break all ties I suppose.

Not only do I delete these people, but I block them as well.  That way, I can’t see what they’re doing and they can’t see what I’m doing.  It’s as if they don’t exist.  Mind you, there aren’t many people that I have blocked, maybe 2 or 3.  It sure makes it easier to move on with your life with people who are worth focusing your energy on!

@leebaby711:  I’m so sorry you had to go through that last year. As other PP’s suggested, I would definitely hide all of the mutual friends. Years ago, when an ex boyfriend and I broke up, I had to delete and block him on facebook because I wanted to move on with my life, and didn’t want to continue to be updated on his life. I also had to unfriend the ex’s friends because I didn’t want to take the chances of being hurt by seeing a photo that they posted of him. I think that was before the hide feature though! I like facebook for keeping in touch with people, but when something goes wrong it makes it really hard to move on sometimes!

Oh I totally understand. I don’t have any bad blood with friends, but I still get sensitive when I see them posting all over someone elses status update when my same update was ignored the week before.

Sorry to hear your bridesmaids were so crappy. I feel like a lot of people don’t think twice when asked to be in a wedding, then complain and cause drama the second they have to do something selfless for a friend getting married. It’s unfortunate, but for better or worse weddings show you who your true friends are 🙂

You know what pisses me off?  The iPhone 5 is now being built around Facebook ‘technology’.  I’m like WTF for?!  So we can yell our pissy statuses at each other?

I recently went into this life/FB overhaul and deleted my profile.  It was agonzing!!  It took me about 4 months to get over my withdrawl and now I have a hidden one (I have like 10 friends and no photos) and don’t need to see any of the other toxic bullshit I was privvy to every-feckin’-day. Consider it….but only after you have downloaded all of your photos.  I have a little bit of regret about that. As for them being happy, remember that they’re likely not really that happy.  They’re all in shitty one-sided friendships, lol!! When you look at them again go ‘ugh, it must suck to pretend to be happy all the time’ and move on.

I’ve had the same things, ex friends looking like they are so happy without you. It hurts, but I dont miss the drama and fighting. I took a lot of people off facebook because of ended friendships.
