One of my friends on Facebook constantly posts kissing pics of her and her husband. Along with the pic she will post stuff like “madly in love” or “still in love after three years of marriage”. Friends have posted comments like get a room and other hints about not posting such pics. She posts these pics like all the time.
Why would someone have to post pics like these on Facebook so much? Does anyone have friends that do this? Do you think its necessarily bad?

@Kacey23: Some people have that social media over-share syndrome. I just block them from my feed and let them enjoy their exhibitionist tendancies with someone else.

Yeah, I have one friend in mind right now. “So in love with my man” “so glad I found someone so amazing”. All this after like, six weeks dating

@MrsM914: +100000. The “hide from newsfeed” feature is my Facebook BFF.
I have a couple of friends from school who are almost CONSTANTLY posting Too Much Information make-out pictures with captions like “me n my baby, love uuuu, xoxoxox!!!11” ….. bleh. No thanks.

@Kacey23: Ugh! Yes! My cousin and his gf. They have 3 kids together and he has 5 all together. They are always posting how much they love each other and don’t care what anyone says and how much they are GREAT parents and how much they love their kids. Them they want to pass judgement on other people’s parenting skills because they are such great parents. Uggghh!!!
I just think they have to over compensate because they have insecurities and/or they just want other people to know what a great family they are because they are just very egotistical. It’s very annoying.

I’d just block them. I find that people who overshare like this are often overcompensating for something.

@Kacey23: I don’t think it’s any worse than any other type of over-posting. If I have anyone who’s annoying but don’t want to unfriend them, I hide their updates.

Oh yes!! I have a few. Just as others have said, I hid them from my newsfeed. Those that I know who does it are basically putting on a show. Pretending that their life is greater that what it actually is. A friend who was doing that was actually cheating on her husband. She eventually deactivated her account after word got around. I honestly think that it is lame.

@Kacey23: It doesn’t bother me. I’d rather see that than some of the negativity I see on there.

I have a friend who is always posting Instagram pics of her and her husband (which is fine, whatever), BUT each pic ends like this: #ilovemyhusband #happilymarried #happilyeverafter #husbandandwife #couple #marriage #happy #love #inlove #instalove #lovehim

@Kacey23: those annoy me a bit too. Maybe they want validation for their relationship.

I don’t have any friends that do this, but if I did they would be removed from my news feed. No one needs to see that :/

@Kacey23: i feel like a lot of the time that is also “over compensating” for something thats not all that perfect. but id give her the benefit of the doubt. its good to see people in love rather than some of the other shit posted on facebook! people use it like its a diary!
