Things That Annoy Me About Facebook

Postby ghost_2000 » Wed Mar 03, 2010 5:26 pm

I'll start:
People who use ghey inspirational quotes as status updates on a daily basis. Do you not have any original thoughts?

(And yes, feel free to use this thread to rant about any and all evils of FB)

YESSSSSSS :twisted:

I don't use FB (b/c it's evil) but I'm seeing it mess up friendships with ppl I know. Like my friends Kenny and Michelle, for instance... they work at the same office and Michelle comes to some of our parties and road trips to shows and stuff, and she takes tons of pics and posts them directly from her phone. Kenny keeps having ppl come up to him at their office and go "looks like you were pretty wrecked on Saturday!" and he's like wtf I don't even know this person... but that person is on Michelle's overblown friends list and saw Kenny was tagged in some super drunk-ass photos. He's asked her time and again not to post that stuff but she doesn't listen... so now she's not getting invited to as many parties anymore. :|

People that leave "open" status updates, looking for response/sympathy.

Ex:

"Ugh..."

"Wow."

"Having the worst day of my life..."

Also, mothers and their need to update every time they wipe their (amazing) kids ass.

Thirdly, groups that race other groups, like "can Ohio State get 1 million fans before UMichigan."

Oh, and photos of Neil. :wave:

I'll play.... :twisted:

Things I hate about Facebook:

-Walls
-"Friends"
-Status updates
-Fan pages
-Tagged photos
-Chat
-The name "Facebook"
-People asking me everyday when I am going to join Facebook

That's all I can think of for now. :wave:

YES!!! That whole expectant pause at the end, with the ellipses. Like "aren't you going to ask why I'm being all emo?" That shit drives me nuts in any format, FB or wherever.

The fact that I'm some sort of social misfit since I don't have a Facebook page.

Look, I'm a social misfit anyway, so why should I have a Facebook page to prove otherwise. Would you really care that my dog is in a bad mood, anyway?

I don't facebook either. What pisses me off (since I don't use the site) is all the damn invites I get. I can't even decline them w/out creating an account so they keep coming as follow ups (so and so invited you). Then I get questions from people I haven't seen in a while like "why are you ignoring me on FB?". I'm not ignoring you, I don't have an account for some stupid (past) trendy site that people waste way too much time on. . .I've got Phish for wasting my time.

NICE!!

That's the exact reason I ended up joining. The incessant invites that don't stop without you joining.

Hahaha, well put :clap:

What annoys me the most are the cell phone text message status updates. Why is posting on facebook the first thing some people think of when something awesome happens? :crazy:

What I really hate about Facebook: You know those people from High School? The ones where you completely forget that they even exist and life is so much better because of it, then you see a picture of them and you're like "Mother Fucker!"

Aw shucks, thanks... I think. :o :oops: :D

BTW, you guys know there is an option at the bottom of those emails to opt-out of future emails from Facebook, right? I used to get those emails daily, but ever since I unsubscribed I haven't gotten one. :thumbup:

Wow, really? I guess I'm lucky...I don't have facebook and none of my friends seem to care that I don't have facebook. Mostly because I don't have any internet at all. But what's the big deal with Facebook invites? Can't you just block those e-mails?...I block a ton of e-mails on my Yahoo. I don't care.

What I don't like is how it's kind of replaced people calling up and talking to each other. I used to have friends call and chat for a half-hour straight about life and such. But since they got on Facebook, they only chat with the other friends on there and never care to reach out to friends outside that little digital world. I miss out on some outings because they're entirely planned through Facebook posts back and forth and no one bothers to call me to let me know because they assume I'm part of the Facebook thread.

Also, doesn't it seem like no one plans anything anymore? Like we used to plan our Friday outing on a Wednesday. Now, with the digital age, NOTHING is planned in advance. I always get calls like "what are you doing tonight?" and a lot of the time I had already made plans and had they let me know a couple days before, I wouldn't have made those plans. Again, not a Facebook gripe per se, but on the digital age in general.

Also, I hate when people use that retarded text-messaging style of typing on Facebook or e-mails. Look, I get that you don't proofread, capitalize, or use complete sentences because it's a hassle on a little phone. You have no excuse for that when at your computer.

Fb is fun for keeping in touch with some friends and whatnot, I hate the mafia/farm/garden BULLSHIT... I do like having a connection that works well with my Daughter and at 18 this actually does...

I like having multimedia as a way to communicate every so often. I work by myself every fucking day and without OKP/Fb it would be even worse... As a social person that like to laugh and smile being in front of a computer and on conference calls EVERYDAY alone, it wears on ya...

In a way I find it funny that people who are not even using Fb bitch about it... :lolno: .... I mean if you're not on there then do not worry about it, right? And if you're getting invites, unsubscribe, it is that easy... Or tell your friends that are trying to get you to come to Fb that you would prefer not to be hassled with it...

Just like Clear Pepsi, if you do not like it, don't drink it.... :wave:

Well this thread was started to bitch about facebook right? I'm sorry was there a note I missed that says only users can complain? If a non user started it I can see your point but the truth is that people who use it get offended when you don't answer the friend requests.

For the record blocking the sender was the first thing I did but it seems like ever round is a new fb bot to get around the block. I will actually open and see if I can unsubscribe which seems funny since I didn't subscribe in the first place, generally I just check the box and delete w/out opening.

To take the same (flawed) logic: If you don't like the posts, don't read em, Ryan. It's that simple. I thought you were all about the Pa being tolerant and accepting of people sharing their thoughts an opinions, yeah? If so, that applies to everyone in every thread... not just the people you deem suitable. :wave:
