@Katnisseverdeen:  I don’t think it is fair to say she doesn’t care about what is important to her friends.  Besides I have many close friends with different interests that don’t interest me.  One friend is highly into football.  I may roll my eyes at the football talk, but I love my friend to pieces!

@heathaah & @VegasSukie: Not a clue. Her husband (my BIL) was pissed that she sent that picture to everyone. He said that if he doesn’t even want to see a picture of his kids blowout he was almost certain that noone else does. Oh, how right he was!

@heathaah I have different interest also then some of my friends but them posting about there children or pregnancy is not a interest some people do have distant family and this is a great way to keep in contact.

@VegasSukie: “The one thing I will say about Facebook is that I think it has made many people truly believe that every single minute of their lives is of interest to everyone.”

Oh, how right you are! I seldomly post on FB and if I do, it’s normally something witty that I’ve been working on for like an hour prior. I’ve never been one of those FBers who feels that everyone needs the play by play of my schedule for a given day. No-one cares that I have a dentist appointment followed by a manicure followed by a stop at the mall to get some new socks. NO-ONE!

@Katnisseverdeen:  I agree 100% that it is a great way to keep in contact with family and friends.  But does my Aunt really care that my baby slept from 1 til 3 today and woke up with a poopy diaper, and is having peas and applesauce for dinner?  Probably not.  That is what the OP was talking about.  The mundane silly all-too-frequent posts.

These posts always make me wonder just what everybody uses facebook for…

Maybe its because I know everyone on my friends list but I really dont get annoyed when people post something that doesnt really interest me.  Who am I to tell them how to express themselves?

They’re my FRIENDS, I want them to shout out to their FRIENDS exactly what they’re feeling, what they love, what excites them. If anything it gives me an opportunity to learn something, whether it be about them or about something that interests them.

And yes, I DO care that my friends baby had peas and carrots today. I care because it makes me happy to see how happy he makes her.

But again, maybe its because my facebook friends are people I actually know?

@DeadlyNightshade:  All of my facebook friends are people I know (people have ‘friends’ they don’t actually know???).  But that doesn’t mean I care about the peas and appleasauce.  But when it clogs my page, it is a little aggrivating.  I think this is being blown out of proportion.  No one is getting seriously angry about these posts.  This was more about how annoying these type of posts can get when they happen constantly.  That’s all.

@heathaah:  I can see that no one is actually getting angry, which is why I didn’t use that word.  Nothing being blown out of proportion here. My stance still remains the same. What makes my friends happy makes me happy.  Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

 

ETA: And yes, unfortunately, some people will friend and accept friend requests from ANYBODY.  I don’t care if you’re a friend of a friend, some random dude off the street, or a even a coworker, if we haven’t/ dont hang out, I hit IGNORE.
