Facebook Pet Peeves

More irritating than Facebook are the users themselves.

So here's list of common Facebook abuses, together with a little friendly advice, originally published in Hernando Today, and recently  updated in Best of Times.

Absolutely still relevant. I thought about posting it on Facebook but then I remembered why I didn't go there! Made terrific reading though.

This is why I don't do Facebook. Well no, it's only partly why. It's the invasive nature of the site that really peeves me. Funny stuff, Nick.

That's a great article. It drive me crazy that young people, such as my children, post their relationship statuses and then complain about everyone knowing their personal information.

Love,
Janie

I'm not on facebook but I think those pet peeves applies to people with blogs as well. it's just as well I'm not on facebook, I would bore everyone with my thoughts.

hope you have a great day.

I'm a Facebook fan. I'm not a fan of political preaching on Facebook, though, and the last election had me quietly hiding people I couldn't take listening to anymore!

I've sadly had to hide many people from my FB feed. :-( I like to be nice and happy.

I hate Facebook. It's a waste of time. Too many lunatics out there with agendas. Let's just say, I had a really bad experience.

Rose said...

So true. All of these peeves are just as relevant as they were a year ago, if not even more so.

I have avoided FB so far, but agree with every point!

I love facebook, especially since i have been off work due to back and neck surgery , it has been a lifeline to friends. BUT it is used in the wrong way not as intended by its creators but then thats how we are with the world created by God we abuse it

hilarious!
Now one question remains. Just WHAT should we post?!

Jenny said...

I am sooo glad I don't have time enough for facebook!

Although, your post was so amusing and intriguing I may have to spend a little time out there so I can experience this!

ha!

Thanks for the smile!

A+

I noticed the medical moaner which is one I found annoying. You forget to list the political view sharer. There is an unlimited supply of political stuff to share but that doesn't mean we want to see it. How many people want to listen to political ads?

My least favorite: I believe it's called the vague post. "I'm so sad today. Need smiles/prayers/good thoughts." So we're all supposed to post back----What's wrong???
No thanks.
