Facebook. I love it, I hate it.
I love being able to keep up with friends and family and share photos and silly stuff. But what DON'T you like, Shan? Oh, hold on to your knickers, cuz I'm about to GO THERE.
1. Friends who CANNOT resist making every post political. RAWRRRRR - my biggest pet peeve. I have a dear, dear friend that I have known since the 5th grade.We could not be further apart on the political spectrum.I know this because every other post or status update is about politics. Why the person she does not support is Beelzebub himself. How Christians should support certain people and certain causes and if you don't, you must be related to Beelzebub himself. And God love her, because she really is a sweet, caring person, but there is SO much judgement in what she posts that I have a really difficult time reconciling the lack of empathy in said Christian with anyone who has a different viewpoint. I could go on about this one for days, but I won't. Enough's enough.
2. The Angry Vague Status Update: Holy cow - this person is PISSED OFF and they want everyone to know it. One update I saw yesterday morning was about some Hoooore named XXX that messed around with the Angry Vague Status Updater's man, and how the status updater hoped the Hoooore was happy cuz HE LIES. This message was preceded in the past few days with random status updates about Karma being a bitch, and how The Truth may hurt for a little while, but A Lie lasts forever. Please, Angry Vague Status Updater, talk to a licensed therapist about your anger. Is Facebook REALLY the place for it?
3. The Negative Nelly: Oy vey. This person NEVER has anything positive going on in life. They burn their face with the curling iron; traffic is too heavy on the way to work; the weather is too hot/cold/rainy/snowy/icy/etc., or their cat is trying to kill them. Let's try something, okay? For every ten negative status updates, just try to post five positive - or hell - even NEUTRAL - status updates. Pretty please? For humanity's sake?
4. Others: The Over-sharer; The Television Show/Movie Spoiler Updater; The Game-Player Who Wants to Play - or share their score - with everyone. Dude, I don't care what your score is with Candy Crush Saga.
So those are are few of mine - what are YOUR pet peeves in Facebook-land?
