Speaking of making mockeries of marriage and Kim K like shenanigans, I have a fb friend who is so off and on with all of her boyfriends. She’ll date a guy about a week or two, all the while posting <3datetheygottogetherthistime<3 after every post she writes. Now she’s started being “engaged” to them. So today, out of the blue, she’s engaged to this one guy again. I don’t even know if it was the guy she was engaged to for 3 days or one of her other boyfriends. But now she’s changed her last name to his. SHE CHANGED HER STATUS EARLIER TODAY.
It’s mostly funny, but makes me wanna bang my head against the wall a little. I hope her frontal lobe develops soon. I’m scared it’s going to be stuck this way, though. And she’s actually a sister of a friend, so I don’t actually know her or how serious she is about these things.
I just thought it was ridiculous how she isn’t serious at all about her relationships/engagements. I’m in a grumpy mood today lol. She’s like a car crash, though. I don’t want to delete her because of the crazy things she does.
Anyone else have someone like this?

I have lots of idiots on my facebook. I keep them around so when I’m curious enough I facecreep on them and laught at how idiotic they are. My posts are hidden from them, and their updates don’t get displayed on my home page. Basically I use their profiles for sheer laughing pleasure.

Me too! I can’t bring myself to delete them because it provides me with entertainment…

I have a facebook friend who constantly talks about how she is going to quit smoking, and then she will be seen with a cigaratte within the week. she does this every other month or so. one time, she fell off the wagon the very same day that she posted that she was quitting!
she also does this with posts about dieting. (face in palm)

Yeah I have annoying FB friends. I get tired of the drama but don’t have the motivation to clean out the friends list so I put them on ‘hide’ and forget about them since I can’t see what they’re posting. The worst offender has a bad habit of posting names of people whom she has been repeatedly asked not to publish online and complaining about everything under the sun while talking about how she isn’t miserable at all.

oh my, I had to put one of my old friends on “hide” because she was posting every. single. detail. about her newborn.
She’s a sweet girl, but I couldn’t go through another newsfeed with 5 updates within 1 hour about her baby.

I have two FB friends who both switch back and forth between inspirational status updates (how to be a happy person, what matters in life, and what happiness means) and passive-aggressive updates. I am now convinced that they are both bipolar.

I have a few of these. One is a close friend from university who I am not close to anymore simply because she is crazy. She was posting every single update about her on again off again relationship. She’s stopped since thankfully!
I have some other friends who I just hide but their statuses are all passive aggressive or about how much they love so-and-so. Usually the “OMG I love my husband!!!” posts show up the day after they had a big fight. Something to prove?

Yeah I have a few people blocked from my newsfeed. One started working for a political campaign so every single post was pimping that candidate, which got annoying. I try to keep my fb and newsfeed social, not commercial or political.
I also had to hide someone who had the super melodramatic posts all the time about how hard life was.

Omg I love people like this.. When I am having a bad day I just go on Fb and troll their profiles. LOL mean ya probably oh well!! The really annoying ones for me are the woman with children that their every status is complaining about their kids, or how they got no sleep or how so and so is cranky.. .Ugh grow the fuck up!! I had to delete those people because it makes me sad for their children. UGH

I often “hide” my annoying FB friends from my feed, but for curiosity’s/entertainment’s sake, I keep them as friends so I can check in if I want but not have to be tuned in to every update.

I got rid of sooooo many people for being annoying. I just…didn’t even care to hide it!

One of my FB friends (slightly more than acquaintence from HS) had a baby shortly after we friended each other and continued to suffer from post partum depression for the next year, publicly on FB. Her status updates were horrible, not even just Too Much Information, but actually like tempting to call the cops and tell them to make sure she hasn’t just drowned her baby.
I understand that people go through this all the time and I don’t mean to judge her situation (or anyone else’s), but I think posting it on FB was a little uncalled for, esp since clearly her friend list wasn’t limited to close friends and family.

@AprilJo2011: ugh, I hate the “inspirational sayings” posts.
