Annoying Things People Write on Facebook

I find the majority of the stuff people post on Facebook unbearable. I know it's easy just to say "well, don't look then" but it's always fun to have a moan. So what sort of stuff on Facebook grinds your gears and annoys you? Have your say!

Here's a couple to get the ball rolling...

1.) Writing a vague status about being angry or ill so people will ask what's up. Similarly, tagging yourself at a hospital without writing a single word falls into this attention seeking category.

2.) Posting updates of your kid's potty training progress every single time they use the potty.

3.) Separated parents using Facebook as a platform to compete with each other.

4.) "I'd just like to say..." Every post that starts this way is either attention seeking or is indirectly about someone

5.) Any post about drinking, being drunk or being hangover

I've stopped reading them. It's such torture. Thing I hate most of all is people tagging you with all the their random **** and posting it on your wall. Argh

To me what pisses me off is that most of it is self serving in a very 'dont mind me I'm so cool' way. It's what makes people suspend their account. Don't do that, just kick a few people of your account every month or so.

I read this some time ago & thought this is everything people so hate about Facebook statuses. This is a true quote of someone's update:

2012 was a biggg year for me. I left my amazing job at NBC to move back to Chicago. I started dating my angel, Jaime Holland. I started yoga (thanks Jake Fisher & Jonah Perlstein!). I wrote an album with Matthew Johannson. Wrote another album I'm proud of. I got to hang with Owen Wilson, and worked with Will Ferrell on an amazing project. Had a conversation about Barack Obama with David Gregory. Danced. Joined a kickball team. Won a couple awards. Helped my sister plan her summer trip. Swam a lot. Golfed a little. Cried more than you would think. Read The World According to Garp. Saw Apocolypse Now. Went to Miami for the NBA Finals. Drank the best orange juice I've ever had with Davey Welch. Tweeted. Went to amazing weddings in Upstate New York. Drank a ridiculous amount of milk. Learned how to make sand art. Saw a great light show. Saw the Angels and Lakers. Fell in love with Jawbone Up. Cooked with Jaime. Gardened with Jaime. Watched Homeland with Jaime. Wrestled with Jaime. Laughed for hours with Jaime. Fell in love with Jaime's family. Worked on a play. Played World of Warcraft. Did some improv. Played a ton of the guitar. Really just had a wild, amazing year. What a world.

Is that a real post? It just seems like a parody of some sort.

Sometimes I wonder whether Facebook brings on some sort of mental regress or whether Facebook just documents it. Usually by age 5 or 6 humans stop drawing attention to every little trivial action: brushed teeth, having breakfast (with picture pls). I'm so ready for another year of that good stuff.

What always is so funny is when people paste hokus pokes bogus news items thinking that they have a really amazing breaking story. Soon people start responding with 'Err no it's a hoax, look here' and the next thing that story is gone from their timeline. A month later they do the same thing again with another tale.

Some people like tragic statuses. It's sad but funny at the same time. Somebody had an accident or tragedy and people go 'like'. In the new world of media friends are there to cheer your misery. Hey so cool, I like that! Cant be arsed to put in a comment of course, a like is def good enough. How lucky are they to have friends like that.

Or on the other hand begging people for likes of group pages and such. It looks loserish.

The worst are the vent & rants directed at NOONE! Theyr upset with someone but instead of addressing that thing they would rather bend the world's ear and get a big pile of pity comments and likes. Xcept they dont actually get that they get people rolling their eyes and laughing at them.

The self obsessives: I'm so ugly (please tell me I'm pretty 'Oww no ur not youyouyouyou baby you're beautiful, yes you are, Yes you Are' (adopt singsong tone normally used for cats & 6 month old babies)) I'm so fat (compliment please) I lost so much weight (pls congratulate me and follow my lead). Does Facebook make us annoying or does it just bring out the worst in us? Probably both.

It just brings out the worst in some of us. On facebook you cant see yawns, you cant see eyes rolling, so its easy to think youre being very entertaining.

One I've seen a lot recently is when someone announces they are pregnant or recently got secretly engaged or something and their closest friends say "glad the secret is finally out" or something similar just to declare to everyone that they already knew. What's the point in caring that people know you knew first and making it about you? Just be happy for them with everyone else!

You're right there, it's a tad egotistical. To stay with the subject of pregnancies I think there ought to be a limit to the number of big bare bellied/half bare photos anyone should post. Some of the people that will see them haven't had breakfast yet :) One of my friends insists on a good number every week. I have my fingers crossed for a speedy delivery.

What about the "humble-brag"? Gosh I only ran for 10 miles today, I have to get myself together! The rest of us have to chime in and say 'Oh I wish I were a bit more like you'

I think lobbies are fine on Facebook. But there's only so much that you can take. When they are like a 1 note song pushing the same thing every day? That's when you want to vote for the opposite side.

A (distant) relative literally makes up sickness stories in order to get some sympathy and attention. She was called out on Saturday when people that had seen her at a party posted a few ?! comments on her status. The things we do for love..
