June 10: Things that annoy me on FaceBook.

on June 10, 2012

It’s been like a whole week since we have had a list – did you miss it? I have had to physically stop myself from writing lists for my blogs, but I couldn’t resist this one. Let me know if you have any to add or any comments to share! Don’t forget you can comment at the bottom of the post, too 🙂 You will also notice that I have developed somewhat of an obsession with someecards… Thanks Rach!

So, I give you : Things that annoy me on FaceBook.

The VagueBooking.

This is where someone writes something that is deliberately vague along the lines of  “Oh, I can’t do this anymore, Somebody  help me please!” which prompts someone to ask “OMIGOD! r u okayyyyyy?”. Then we get a status full of people asking what is wrong and how they can help, and of course, the ever present ” I luv youhhh” which is ignored by the status writer.

The “DW” and/or “I can’t say” comment.

Look, whenever I see someone post the DW comment the first thing the goes through my head is “When things trouble you, call DW! – Darkwiiiing Duck!” followed promptly by my keyboard. If you don’t want to talk about something, why put it on a networking site which is, after all, for speaking to people? Just don’t put it up! Same goes if you “can’t” talk about something.
For example:

  • What’s up
  • Then why have you even mentioned it on FaceBook you twit?

Funny Sympathy Ecard: I want you to know that whatever problems you're having, I'm here to read about it on Facebook.

The “I’m too sexy for a shirt in any of my photos look at my biceps come at me girls” display pictures.

This picture says it way better than I ever could:

I don’t care about your abs, your pecs, or anything else. If I wanted to see photos of you shirtless every day, I would check myself into a somewhere that FaceBook was non-accessible so that I could receive help. Seriously, Men of the world: Women honestly don’t care that much, and the first thing they think when they see your 300 mobile uploads of your naked torso in the bathroom mirror is generally “What a Douche.”
Do us all a favour, yeah? Leave the shirt on.

The complaints about Time Line.

Are you ready for this, FaceBook users? Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t care if you don’t like the new timeline. Your pointless rants and statuses about it won’t change the fact that it is here and here it is to stay. Any sort of email or link you get which magically promises to remove timeline is spam and it won’t happen. Don’t forget, there was an uproar like this the last five times FB changed its format, and ever time you screamed for the “old” FaceBook back which is the one you were whinging about in the first place!

And Finally:

People who add friends off your list that they have never met or spoken with or even knew of their existence.

Ok, let’s be honest. These are the stupid reasons they are my FaceBook friends:

  • I know them
  • I interact with them
  • I would say “hi” to them in the street because I recognise them.

These are the stupid reasons they are not your FaceBook friend:

  • You don’t know them
  • You don’t interact with them
  • You wouldn’t say “hi” to them in the street because you don’t recognise them.

“Nuff said.

Funny Thanks Ecard: Thanks for unwittingly letting me pillage your Facebook friends list in a desperate attempt to build up my own.

    Love the last one, I also get really peeved at adults who accept children/teenagers as friends when they don’t know them. Random people in your life knowing far too much is not a good thing!

      I very rarely add kids to my FB – I try to avoid adding Tessa and Peanuts friends because I am not active in their lives. I sometimes have things on my FB that children should not see and I am aware of that – the selective blocking of people from some posts is amazing!

  2. Totally agree with all of those, especially the ones about the photos. I’m a guy and I find it repulsive when I see shirtless or really provocative photos, from both guys and girls. How can one find it attractive to see someone sharing such things on a social web? It’s dumb.

    • Kloi-Jayd says:

      i always get sad, more than anything, when i see young girls dressed like skanks. I remember when I was younger, and i wouldn’t have dreamed of it.

      I wish these people would realise that posting things like this on FB is silly and dangerous!
