Google Dollops of Diane: Most Annoying Facebook Posts

Most Annoying Facebook Posts



I love Facebook. I think it’s a great tool to stalk keep up to date on people. I am constantly checking it day and night. Some might say I’m obsessed. Of course, with any great love there is always a downfall. This time however, it’s not Facebook, it’s the people (aka my friends). So here we go folks, my top list of things that people do that drive me crazy on Facebook:
  • When people use extremely vague and dramatic language when they are clearly talking about one specific person and/or event.  Example: “I can’t believe that someone who claims to be my friend would go behind my back and be so hurtful.”  Of course this post is then followed by comments from people that are nicer than me that say things like, “Oh, I hope everything is okay,” “I’m thinking of you,” “Call if you need me. Hugs.” You will never receive such a response from me because if you’re not going to give us the details behind it then I don’t want to hear about it (period). Thank you.
  • When people act much tougher on Facebook than they are in real life. Example: “It’s a good thing that girl walked away when she did otherwise I would have showed her just how mad I really was.” Really? You’re a skinny, white girl, who has never hurt a fly what exactly were you going to show her? I for one would have liked to have seen if she hadn’t walked away. 
  • When people post EVERY single thing they do in a day. You went to work, the gym, cooked dinner, are going to bed - Guess what?   No one really cares. Unless there is a specific reason for posting it or there was a funny thing that happened, then I don’t need to hear it. Thank you.
  • When people constantly post about how sick they are or their children are. Now occasional posts letting people know that you and your loved ones have come down with the plague are okay. However, I don’t want to hear endless posts about how you are feeling and ones that are clearly just looking for an (over)abundance of sympathy. I also do not need to hear all about the color mucous your kid is coughing up and I definitely don’t need to see a picture of it. Why don’t you try sending a private message to your doctor instead? Thank you.

Are you guilty of doing some of the above? Well then you might just be on the Facebook friend chopping block.

What status updates make your blood boil?

  1. I totally feel the same way. Unfortunately some people 'closer' to me are guilty of this obnoxiousness and I feel OBLIGATED to say "Hope he feels better soon!" etc. It's not that I don't truly hope that- it's just that all they do is complain, constantly!

  2. Sorry you're feeling this way Diane. Hugs! Well, I better not hug you because I'm feeling lousy today. Actually, I've been feeling lousy for a week now! I think it started after I posted that I went to Dunkin Donuts to get a coffee.
    Message me if you want to talk. I won't be like that someone close to me that says they care.

  3. Can we please not for get about the BRAGGERS!!! I mean seriously! If I hear one more time about "I have the most AMAZING husband/wife/son/daughter in the world" I might just barf, seriously, if they are that amazing you don't need to plaster it on fb daily. (I have the most amazing husband anyways, so they are all liars...haha)

  4. Diane, your too funny!! As you know we are polar opposites when it comes to facebook and the reasons you listed are in part why, of course a few people came to mind immediately when reading this.....like the ones that post that they made dinner,really I make dinner too.....and almost every night, wow we're twins!!..... or the ones that feel the need to post that they're going to bed, seriously?!?! the rest of the population has or will be going to bed too!!! (fake high five!) Ok, I got that out of my system

  8. A facebook friend popped into my head for each item you listed. I really hope people don't think I post too much say about my kids but honestly if someone doesn't care about my kids then they don't care about me and they should just unfriend me.
    OH and I TOTALLY hate the FML posts. I understand you're annoyed and I'm reading way too much into it but your life is precious and you need to be appreciative of that!

  9. I'm mostly on facebook to keep in touch with close family that's far away, so most of my posts are about the kids, but I try to keep it entertaining at least (like my 5-year-old's recent comment of "sometimes my pretend friend just wants to beat me up because I'm a robot"). If someone doesn't like me posting so much about my kids, I have no problem with whatever steps they take, block me from your newsfeed or nix me as a contact, I don't care. If I didn't have so much family far away I wouldn't even be on facebook anyway. :)

  10. I hate when I post something sarcastic/self-deprecating and the pollyannas are all, "Oh, take some deep breaths" or "I find that simple gifts, like a cup of tea, really help" or "Don't be so hard on yourself. Your hair will grow back" when I've posted a photo of my spectacularly bad morning hair as a joke, to entertain. I don't care how my hair looks first thing in the morning, but it is funny, so sometimes I post photos. It doesn't mean I need a f*cking cyberhug! [whew. good to get that off my chest.]

    Also dislike the sneaky-braggy posters: "My two-year-old thinks Pluto is still one of the planets when he names them all. Kids!"
