Those annoying Facebook friends. Day 27 of #Blogtober17

I am taking part in Blogtober17 and will be writing posts with various themes/prompts throughout October...Today's prompt is: Facebook

I used to be a Facebook addict....I would update my status about 10 times a day, play all the games and chat to people on there....Now. I don't. I use it to share some photos with my dad now and again and now I mostly use it for blogging things....

I skim through it now and again and read some of the statuses from people and sometimes I am left rolling my eyes. These are the people on Facebook who annoy me!

The Attention seekers - Those who say "I'm so angry" or "I'm so upset" then when you ask about it they say they don't want to talk about it....Ugh!

The novelty account for a pet/foetus/pre-vocal childNo. Just don't! As a dog you lack the language skills necessary to impart anything worthwhile to my life. It's just weird! 

The let me tell you every detail of my day person - "I'm waking up." "I had toast for breakfast." "I'm bored at work." "I'm stuck in traffic."....No moment is too mundane for some people to broadcast. Just because you have 1274 Facebook friends doesn't mean we all want to know when you're going to the toilet! Ugh.

The Spoilers - Those who love to ruin my favourite TV shows before they've even been shown on TV!

The stupido who always falls for the latest scamEvery time without fail. Giant spiders, satanic soft drink logos, scam giveaways. But don’t bother correcting them - they’ll only get defensive. “I was only trying to raise awareness!”. Ugh! 

I have a Facbook friend who's daughter received a heart transplant but then sadly passed away....Her photo was used in a scam. One of those "if this photo gets 5000 likes the kid gets a new heart and can live"....It was sickening! I can't even begin to imagine how the family felt. A like on FB can not save a child...

The stalker - These friends never post on your wall, never really even communicate with you on Facebook but when you see them in real life they know absolutely everything you’ve statused for the past year. 

The “I'm taking a break from Facebook” personEverybody needs a break from Facebook from time to time. Most of us just disappear without notice but not these friends announce it! It's usually someone who's had a minor argument with someone on Facebook....Just go! I probably won't even notice. lol

The sellers - Those who are trying to get me to sign up for Juice plus things and things like that. They try to get all of their friends to jump on board with the latest and greatest money making program out there. Ugh!

The Checker in - The one who checks in to every single place they visit....I think I've checked into a couple of places but that was only because my friend tagged me in it....I have seen someone check into a hospital and then not tell anyone why....Ugh!

The one's who ask stupid questions - Like how long do I boil an egg, how do I get paint out of the carpet? That's what Google is there for. If you can get on Facebook you can use Google. Ugh!

The guilt trip person 90% of people don’t have the guts to change their FB status, blah, blah, blah....One Like = One Prayer.” What they’re really saying is “Pay me some attention or you’re wishing bad things upon all your loved ones. Ugh!

Do you have these type of annoying friends on Facebook?


  1. Oh yes! All of them, some I unfriended, some I mute and others I just scroll by. I also have some really funny fb friends, they tell the mundane but in such a way I end up laughing with them. I love fb #blogtober17

  2. All far too familiar! I'd add people who post photos of everything they eat - ok if it's a fancy meal you've spent the over then fine, but I saw someone posting a photo of a cheese toastie the other day!!

  3. Love this post! My particular dislike is the thing where people post a massive thing about cancer/ mental health/ bullying and make you feel guilty if you don't post it yourself. None of us like cancer or bullying, but we don't need to post it FB! Grrr!
