I have a Facebook page. Occasionally use it to keep in touch with sons who live out-of-town. Also to gather pictures of my grandkids that have been posted.
But most of the time I just find it terribly irksome.
Some of the stuff which has really been irritating lately:
People putting on pictures of something tragic or sad, asking you to like them and basically saying “if you pass this one by, you don’t care”.
Being asked to copy and paste something onto my wall. Also reading something on the lines of “I have an idea which of my friends will do this”
People putting up the same pictures, jokes, etc that they have put up several times before. I can remember it, why can’t you?
People going into every minute detail about their day. I’ve even learnt about someone doing a smelly fart..
People posting incorrect information and saying “I could be wrong but”
People putting on statuses and passing them off as their own thoughts. (You have either seen them elsewhere or know for a fact they don’t write, punctuate, or use grammar in that way).
People posting about stuff when you know they haven’t got a clue what they are discussing.
People posting all those things about prayer and God, when you know they aren’t in the least bit religious. So why do they do it?
The ads on my page. I’m of a certain age and single, so FB assumes I want to see ads such as “oldies” dating sites, bingo and stair lifts.
Meeting someone I haven’t seen before, or someone I haven’t seen for years. Then one of the first things they ask is “Are you on Facebook”?
The fact that if you don’t go on FB for a few days, some people think there is something wrong with you, like you are ill or dead.
End of rant…
