I don’t want to see or hear about any of my friends getting into grad school until I find out from my prospective schools… I turned in my applications, now just the waiting is the hardest

@MsW-to-MrsM:  um, facebook doesnt have affairs, people do. Affairs are as old as time, and were happening long before the internet was even a dream. If I can’t trust my husband to be faithful to me while managing his own social netoworking activity than I can’t trust him at all. By this logic wouldn’t you need to “proactively” stay away from all members of the sex to which are attracted? This is just not realistic. You sound really personally angry at Facebook.

@renwoman:  Honestly, I love it all. I know, weird right??? But if no one posted all the things that irritate us all the time, or off and on, there would be NO fb! Thank goodness for all the posts. I have a few friends and family that post a ton, and others thats hardly ever post. They like post once a week or once a month, which makes it soooo boring……whithout the few family and friends who post often, facebook would be a desert(boring and empty). 🙂

@MsW-to-MrsM:  “also believe married couples should have joint Facebooks or not have it at all. “


seems like you have major trust and privacy issues that you need to work on

No ignorant racist, classist, religious or political babbling.  Also no posts about breastfeeding toddlers.

The people who post about their awesome baby projectile vomiting all over the store. Gross. Why would you post this?

The people that are super negative about their life and do absolutely nothing to change it EVERRRRRRRRRR!

There was literally someone this morning that posted this long ass rant about “I got up this morning and did yoga and miscalculated my workout time and walked in the rain and had a healthy breakfast even though I was running late, so stop complaining about how hard your life is just because you don’t make healthy choices and I do! I’m tired of people whining! I have my priorities together!”

I’m sorry, what? Shut up with your fitness crap. You post EVERY DAY about “Got up and had Shakeology! #shakes #yoga #namaste” “Perfect sunrise yoga today!” “I’m doing Shakeology everyone else should too!” “Ran 3 miles today #awesomeworkout”

STOOOOOOOOOP! Why don’t you tell us how you’re doing or what you and your husband are up to instead?

And of course the “inspirational” posts.

I have a lot of similar complaints…

People who post a dozen pictures of their kid EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.

Faux news article posts they weren’t smart enough to realize aren’t real- The Onion is not a place to get news people!!

Terrible spelling/grammar

People who take a picture of every meal they ever eat

FB posts between couples that are Too Much Information, PDA, and completely unnecessary- you are married and see each other every day- why do you need to make 14 comments back and forth about how you have the best husband/wife ever on FB- just send a PM or text message! No one else wants to see it!!

And on a more personal note, posts by one FB friend in particular- she is a stay-at-home mom, but her only child is in school most of the day.  She goes the gym every day, shops constantly, travels all over the country (Hawaii to New York- a different state every week or so), and has had several plastic surgeries lately– I guess with money from her ex-husband for child support?

@renwoman:  Right now? No happy news about getting jobs, haha. I’m finishing uni this semester and applying for teaching jobs, and it seems like everyone in my course is getting interviews or jobs and I’ve had sweet FA. I am happy for my friends, but if I have to see one more “getting ready for my interview!” right before I get another rejection email I think I’ll smash my computer.

@icanhearyousmile:  I’ve blocked about seven people in the last few months because of this annoying fitness trend. It just reeks of “Look how good I am!”. A lot of people exercise, it’s not necessary to post self-congratulatory pictures/quotes/statuses every time you get off the couch.

I also find there is quite a bit of classism evident in the “look at my home grown kale and quinoa shake, everyone should be eating clean! #noprocessedfoods” type posts. Those organic food/clean eating type diets are expensive. You can’t exactly have a home grown vegie dinner every night when you’re like DH and I, and you can’t afford to live in a place with a back garden or courtyard.

I just remove them from my news feed or hide all of their posts altogether. It’s a privilege for their minute details/shares to show up on my feed.

But the ones I’m tired of reading are:
– Anything to do with celebrities, especially Miley Cyrus, but more so the open-letter feud between Sinead and Miley. IDGAFF! (I don’t give a flying f***)
– Animal cruelty stories; sorry, but seeing the shared pictures of blood and a wounded dog: a link to a story of how a man raped and abused a dog isn’t exactly the kind of coffee-break boost I was looking for
– Instructions for DIY projects that are bound to FAIL. I looked at this make your own paint by using food colouring, flour, water, salt — stored in ketchup bottles. Um, wouldn’t that get mouldy??
– Bullying stories… I somehow don’t think social media is the best place to discuss bullying. It’s the worst place to discuss bullying as it tends to put the victims at a much more vulnerable state, being subjected to even much more peer pressure.

We’ve been together for the better part of a decade and are going strong. There has never been cheating or anything suspicious in my relationship. Not once has there been any sort of ex-drama. There has never been a friendship that one of us felt uncomfortable with. We are very secure and cozy with each other. SO is often alone with women at work. I never worry about it. Outside of work, neither of us have any desire or need to socialize outside of family and same-sex friends. If FB is used just for family and all settings are turned up for maximum privacy, that’s great and useful. But if that is all it’s used for, why wouldn’t you have a joint/family profile?

@MsW-to-MrsM:  Perhaps it’s an age thing.  I joined FB in 2005 when it first was created (long before pictures and messaging) and when I was in college.  I was on facebook long before I met DH. I think it may because I see it as an individuality thing.

I apologize for jumping so far to accuse you of mistrust, I suppose I was just rubbed the wrong way when I felt you insinuated that wanting to have an individual account could lead you down the path of cheating.  I do feel that’s extremely far fetched.
