I have this one friend (and he is a friend, otherwise I would have deleted him by now!) who just does not understand the line of innappropriate…

He will definitely write things like talking about how big his poop was, or other gross things. :-/

I agree with all of the above.

I think my two biggest pet peeves are the woe-is-me attention seekers and new moms who post a photo of their baby and then a caption that sounds as if the baby is speaking (“Going for a walk with Mommy and Daddy!”). Your kid is two weeks old. She cannot talk or type.

A girl I know wrote an update about how wonderful and complete her life is because she has the greatest husband and a beautiful baby and how now her life has meaning. . .The funny thing is that it upset one of my friends so much that she posted something on that girl’s wall along the lines of “Well, my life must really stink and have no meaning because I’m single and barren!”  My single friend is very content with her life and doesn’t wish to be married or have kids right now.

I personally love the updates people have about how much they love their SO/Spouse.  Really?!  I needed to be reassured that you actually do love him/her and wish to be reminded of it at least 20 times a day. . .in various ways, of course.

The only posts I have ever been bothered by was from a former “friend” who would rant about her ex, and her so called friends. Like she would seriously say effin ( the real word) this and effin that, constantly. But other than that, I’m not bothered by peoples posts.

mommy posts bug me when they post like ten times a day about EVERYTHIGN their kid is doing including what their diaper looked like! Seriously, I don’t want to know that your kid ate carrots last night and his poop is orange!!

Also, since a lot of us have guys on deployment I almost immediately blocked the FEW girls I have on FB that are going through this because all you see are posts about how much they miss their hubby, and how horrible it is without them, or how hot it is here (110 average) even though our poor guys are in 130 degree weather.

@CanadianMermaid:  I couldn’t even read the other posts because yours reminded me of something I recently experienced that disturbed me.  I clicked on someone’s profile because I was intrigued by something she said.  In her albums were pictures of her stillborn infant, who’d been born around 5 months gestation.  Her skin was so underdeveloped that it was falling off of her.  I found that to be completely disgusting and inappropriate and was surprised no one had flagged the photos.

As far as statuses I hate:

The “chain” posts.  Anything that says, “repost this if you…”

People complaining about what other people are talking about on FB.  Yesterday there was an earthquake and, of course, a lot of people made status updates about it.  Myself included.  Then, someone said, “Does anyone have anything better to do than talk about an earthquake that really didn’t even happen here?”  I’m not sure what she meant by the last part, seeing as how almost everyone felt it (hence the updates).

People that post Too Much Information about their relationships.  That is so annoying.  I have a 30-something year old cousin who is always writing way too much info about her relationship.  One day she wrote something about the sex they had the night before, while her children are on her friend list.

That same person also posts too much financial info, and I can’t stand that, either.  She writes, “Gotta go to the plasma center today, they’re gonna end up having to cart me away from here on an ambulance.”  She goes to donate plasma every week.  I don’t think you should be writing about being that broke on FB.

@Immacoconut:  I’m with you on blocking the military wives that post about their husband being gone CONSTANTLY.  I have the utmost respect for our armed forces and their families’ sacrifices, let me just go ahead and get that out of the way first.  But, I cannot deal with six to seven hundred posts (okay, exaggeration) daily from someone writing, “I miss my hubby.” 

My old high school friend is married to a Marine.  Every status she writes (several per day) is like a pity party for herself because her husband is gone.  She’ll say, “I’m sick of girls complaining about their husbands!  I wish my husband was around to complain about!”  Like none of us are allowed to be upset with our man just because he didnt’ choose a military career.  Also, when that girl’s husband IS home, she complains and bitches about him NON STOP.

I’m sorry, but when you willingly marry someone who you know will be away from you, at times, you can’t sit there and act like a victim.  The girl I mentioned before says things like, “My husband isn’t going to be here for any of our son’s firsts.”  Well, you knew that before you married him/got pregnant, right?  I know it sucks, but it’s not like his being in the military was some sort of surprise.

@TheFutureMrsLamkin:  Seems like EVERYBODY and their mother is having a baby this year, so all I ever see is babies, babies, babies, and it is annoying!  I don’t want to see your kid sitting in his Bumbo watching Yo Gabba Gabba, I don’t want to watch a video of him screaming at the top of his lungs, I don’t care that he/she is now doing the “army crawl”, and I really couldn’t give any less of a shit about what vegetables you’re starting him on this week!

The pictures are annoying, too.  I love cute pictures of babies, but the same damn pictures fifty or sixty times in row is just too much.

@Corilee13: I HATE, HATE, HATE, absolutely despise how EVERY young girl who gets knocked up because she thinks it’s cute writes, “My little family” under pictures of her and her bf and kid, and in her statuses!  “I love my little family!”  I don’t know why, but I HATE that phrase.  You shouldn’t have a damn family, you’re 10!

I notice some people on here complaining about check-ins.  I check myself in all the time.  I don’t tag other people unless they approve, though.  I only have people on FB that I know and trust.  I don’t have a very big friend list, at all, and I’ve chosen to hide my posts from a lot of them, anyway.  My page is also secured like Fort Knox.  Nobody that can see those posts is going to come track me down and kill me. 

For people that do add whoever and don’t make their pages private, check-ins might be a bad idea.
