Okay, I am sure everyone has people like this, but I have two FB friends who’s lives are rolling train wrecks. One bickers and fights with people through FB and post hateful things to people in her status (which of coarse starts a typed back and forth). The other one always has man issues. She is currently married but her status says single and will probably say married again tomorrow since it changes from day to day. Currently she has a sexy picture with some unknown guy on her FB. She also has major tell off status’ from time to time.
My question is this: When people do this crap on FB, do they know how stupid they look? Are they doing it for attention? Do they think it is normal? I have been wondering these things for a long time, so I thought I would ask: Do train wreck FB friends know they are train wrecks?

I have at least one similar friend… and no, I don’t think they do. Otherwise why would they post it!? :1

Ha this reminds me of a thread I started a while ago. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/trainwrecks-on-fb-defriendhide-from-news-feed-or-keep-looking
I love them. They MUST know they are trainwrecks.

I think some of them know, and others don’t. Either way, I keep them on for the ridiculous mess that they are! (and because de-friending the would cause problems in family and friend circles) 😛

@redheadem: You would think that they would know. Heck, I get embarrassed for them. I have thought about de-friending them but they are entertaining to watch. (Yes, I realize how awful that sounds)

I have one of those and I recently tried to remove him (I also blocked him) but he started messaging my friends to talk to me for him… I felt bad for my friends so I unblocked him and he friend requested me again within 30 seconds of unblocking. I just have no words.
As far as his statuses go he is always wanting someone to talk to him he is always complaining about girls and he is always always complaining about his job. I doubt he knows how bad it looks to others but I know he just wants attention which is why it bugs everyone so much.

There are a few fb friends that I can’t stand, but at the same time I can’t unfriend them, because their posts are like soap operas and/or so funny but horrible that I can’t miss the entertainment factor!
@EffieTrinket: Whoa……that’s all I have to say to that haha

I think some people post their crap on FB because they have no one else who will listen. I used to be friends with this guy who was so annoying that the friendship ended. For some reason we became FB friends earlier this year and I had totally forgotten why we stopped being friends in the first place so I was like ok. His statuses are constantly directed at unknown people where he vents about alleged wrongs done to him by these people. He also changes his relationship status every time he gets a new gf and then you see it go back to single like a month later. I don’t think he has any real friends. He thinks all these people mistreat him when he is the common denominator, ya know?
Others just love attention, any attention, to feed their insecurities. I’m also friends with this girl who’s in law school and constantly likes to remind people of this fact. Her FB statuses always talk about how she got so trashed, f*ck this and f*ck that, and she posts provocative photos of herself showing boobs and whatnot. I wanna tell her to be more professional for future employment but I’m not close enough to her to be able to say.

I don’t really have a train wreck like any of these, but I do have at a FB friend who posts where she is at all time.
Sillygirl is at Starbucks.
Sillygirl is at the post offiice.
Sillygirl is at work.
Sillygirl is at home.
Sillygirl is having a bm.
Sillygirl is faking an orgasm.
Seriously, I do not need to know all your waking activities!!

Oh gosh, the Facebook train wrecks lately have been my Aunt and Uncle, who are going throuh a pretty nasty seperation. They’ve been snarky towards each other online for family to see, and it’s been hard to handle. I started hiding their stuff from my newsfeed, and my parents are close to saying something to them. What a mess!

Hm, I don’t really have anyone on FB like this. I just recently unfriended an old acquaintance because I was sick of his racist comments and negativity. He wasn’t even entertaining. He just made me mad.
But I do have an old friend from high school on Twitter who is hilarious, and she is half the reason I keep my account! Her fiance is a total pushover, and she is so mean to him. I swear at least once a week on Twitter she posts something about how he didn’t get her flowers, or he didn’t surprise her with flowers and – gasp – bought them right in front of her, or he didn’t drop everything and leave work/family/friends/obligations to be with her the moment she wanted him, or something else dramatic and trivial. And then the fiance will post something about how he’s the scum of the earth and such a jerk. I feel sorry for the poor guy.

I LOVE trainwrecks on facebook. You can’t feel bad for laughing/rolling your eyes at their posts either – they know they put that crap out there for everyone to see when posting on social media.
