I don’t see any irony in the posts I see but there is a old classmare that really bothers me by the statuses she posts. She posts photos of the money her military bf gives her to go on shopping sprees and always says she cant wait to go clubbing whenever her bf gives her permission! It makes her look like a golddigger and a woman that has no say on her daily activities.

FI and I have both been raised Christians, so have our siblings. Well, my FBIL’s proclaim that they are Christians all the time but turn around and say and do things that make me ashamed that they claim they are Christians. Its embarrassing because they give the ‘good’ Christians a bad name. The other day these two BILs were bashing (their own cousin) publicly on fb bc she is athesiest or agnositc (I dont remember which one and I have actually never even met her, she lives out of state)…She was talking about her sturuggles on fb and the BILs chimmed in saying she needs to find religion then when she snapped back at them with an attitude, one BIL called her a C*nt Bit*h. I am not even friends with these brothers on fb bc they dont like me, they dont like anyone except themselves. FI doesnt even talk to them anymore. We just heard about it from the cousin. 

It just amazes me the things people say and do on fb. Its a public forum, its NOT the place to talk politics or religion and its not the place to make blanket statements. Its unreal. That comment makes me sick and gives Christians a bad name…they claim they are righteous but they are not at all…

I have seen some of those lately. An ex boyfriend of mine posts things about respecting your girlfriend and ways to communicate efficiently. He was a terrible communicator and he lied like no other! I wanted to comment, but I figured I would save him the embarrassment 🙂

@alyssaC:  Lol wow, that is ironic!

I get annoyed by the people who always post those super positive quotes and status updates about how great things are… but you know that it’s fake. Not sure if they’re trying to convince themselves of something or what, but it rubs me the wrong way.

Haha I have a FB friend who makes me shake my head quite often … her most IRONIC posts (since that was the question, after all) relate to her food/cooking. She’s quite chubby, as is her husband and her kid, so she posts all the time about how they’re going on diets and the whole family is going to eat healthier from now on. But then she’s posting about all these things she’s cooking/baking — things like apple pie, fried chicken wings, chicken parm made the REAL way (pan-fried in butter), etc. I’m like … do you not understand that when you make food that is chock-full of butter, your family will continue to be fat?? I legitimately think that she doesn’t get that. She thinks that homemade from scratch = healthy. Oh, honey …

I love/hate the ones that say “Say it to my face instead of posting it on Facebook!” like literally, that is their status. Those words only. It is so hypocritical I don’t even think I need to explain why.

I also laugh at the ones that triumphantly say “I’m quitting Facebook, byebye!” as if they expect tons of people to comment “no, please stay!! What ever will we do without you here?” I seriously could care less if you don’t want Facebook anymore, and why do you have to post about it?

I dont know it anyone else here has found these sites, but lamebook.com and stfuparents are the best websites for facebook fails!!!

The most dramatic, attention seeking, passive aggressive person I know posts statuses constantly about how he can’t stand dramatic, attention seeking, passive aggressive people and their dramatic, attention seeking, passive aggressive status updates. You get the idea.

@honie309:  People who announce they’re leaving facebook make me laugh. And most are back within the week.

@alyssaC:  I’ve got an ultra-liberal friend who constantly posts negative (I mean pretty venomous) quotes about Republicans. Funny thing is, about 1/4 of her good friends on Facebook are Republicans, including me.

None of us even bother to say anything negative to her. I don’t believe in wearing my politics on my sleeve or pushing my beliefs on others. 

Another FB’er that irks me is my cousin. Her life is constantly filled with drama. To compensate for that her entire Facebook feed is nothing but daily inspirational affirmations. After a while, reading those affirmations seem meaningless. I guess it helps her deal with life though.

I think being active on social media requires a good level of tolerance, but it’s still makes me SMH.
