@tksjewelry:  Same here! There is this one poster that I had to hide yesterday b/c I was scared of the drama that would ensue if I removed her from my friends. She updates her status every couple of hours, and this is pretty much the content:

“Do I look like a doormat? No! Take your business with you elsewhere! You will not stomp on me.”

“Beautiful day… so sick of people’s drama. Wish people’s drama would go away… I don’t get why you don’t respect me – if you don’t respect me, GET OUT!”

“If one more person tells me to be patient, I will rip their heads off. Been more than patient. Unemployed YET doing other people’s jobs for them.”

“You made me laugh by proving your ignorance!”

“Done with people who make me feel bad when I haven’t done anything!”

Every other status is about other people being drama queens and “how sick” she is of the drama. What’s weird is that in high school, she was relatively “normal.” :/

Why FB annoys me today, and always…

Chronic paragraph posters – I seriously do not need to read paragraph upon paragraph of your life, of which show up on my newsfeed about 8 times per day updating us in depth about your morning workout, your lunch, your dinner, your conference call, etc. Sure, I could delete you from my news feed, but I find bitching about your posts more fun?! 

 

The ‘vague’ poster – Thank you for posting things, such as, ‘There are no words…’ without telling us WHY there are actually no words!

 

The ‘over sharer’ poster – Im glad you got a raise, but I do not need to know the exact amount.  I am sorry you were sexually abused in high school, but posting the specific horrifying details on your post seems overly sharing (imo) – and yes, someone I know actually did share their story, including the name of the gentleman of which she never prosecuted!.  Im glad your kid took a dump today, but you do not see me sharing about my personal bowel movements, right?!

 

The therapy patient – These people use FB as their grounds for venting, always.  Their lives are always full of tragedy, and they turn to FB and their ‘friends’ to share their woes and receive sympathy…advice…Im not sure what.  Please, seek a professional…and spare us the doom and gloom!

 

Sadly, of my top annoying offenders on FB, I find that most categories involve the same person/persons time and time again.  My FB feed has the same posters, telling the same stories, every.single.day.

@MsW-to-MrsM:  so because some people use facebook to cheat, everyone that’s married shouldn’t be trusted to use it appropriately?  Sorry that’s the crazytown.  If people are going to cheat, they don’t need facebook to do it and if they didn’t have facebook, they’d likely still cheat anyways.

@renwoman:  Personally, I don’t need any facebook filters, if I don’t like what people post I unfriend them or block them from their newsfeed.   If facebook is causing you to have negative feelings, it’s usually time to step away.

I would filter all back and forth relationship statuses…ie one of my family members who kept changing her last name from her married to her maiden name and posting about how she was happy to be married and happy to be single all in one week!

I would also filter anyone who posts vague statuses and then continues the vagueness when people ask what they mean.

And this isn’t friend related, but I’m on a group for natural hair on facebook where people share hair care and styling tips. I sooo wish I could filter people out who post too many pictures of themselves with the SAME HAIRSTYLE EVERY TIME! lol

@AquaGrey8962:  ::Gets up:: Slow. Clap.

YES! There are two girls on my feed who um, don’t have jobs or husbands (live-in boyfriends instead – I have NO idea how they are funding their lives as one of them has VERY expensive tastes) yet they are always at the gym. Always. Every other status is work-out related whether it’s at 6 am or 2 pm or 5 pm. Just please get over yourself already.

@MrsWBS:  Isn’t a block technically a filter? 🙂

@MrsWBS:  I believe that no one is above an affair. Therefore, it’s best to stay proactive when it comes to staying faithful. Thinking that you are above temptaton will eventually land you in a situation that is inappropriate. Personally, I think the whole culture of Facebook is insane.

I have a love / hate relationship with Facebook in that it allows me to keep track of people and also that I can easily organize parties, etc. through it.

I hate it for the competition and privacy issues. I hate it even more now that my Mom and Stepfather took the liberty of UPLOADING AND TAGGING 64 PICTURES FROM MY WEDDING DAY THE VERY MORNING AFTER MY WEDDING!!!! They did this without asking permission from DH or myself.. It was especially disheartening because the majority of them were taken from behind the Professional Photographer while he was taking posed pictures of the Bridal Party and Family.. I am soooooo dissapointed that they uploaded unauthorized unprofessional pictures of those moments..

I was planning on maybe putting up 1 or 2 professional pics of my choice when I got around to it.. But now I don’t see any point in doing so.

I have a friend that posts a video of her daughter every. single. day. doing a “dance” (AKA wobbling back and forth).  Today’d video was “Baby R’s banana dance!”.  Every day this kid dances about something.  We get it.  Stop.  Posting. VIDEOS!!!

I also despise when people decide to update the world about their children’s bowel movements.  Congratulations, your kid isn’t backed up and learned how to shit in a bowl.  Give them a cookie and keep it off of the internet!

I would love a built-in spell checker on FB. Nothing makes me cringe more than when someone posts of a selfie of them and their baby, saying something like, “your the most importint thing in the world!”

When people post celebrity quotes that are obviously fake.  Like the original poster can’t even be bothered to get simple things like birthdays straight–or maybe they’re just trying to troll people who will fall for it.

@arathella:  Ummmm. Wow. 

I mean, the hashtags thing…if she’s posting from a dashboard or Instagram, it posts the same thing everywhere (and you can use hashtags on Facebook now anyway). But her post? She needs an intervention.

@MsW-to-MrsM:  That’s pretty sad. So you believe that both you and your husband could cheat? That’s really…I would not want to live like that.

And for the record, my first boyfriend carried on an emotional affair with another girl via email, before Facebook, so…
