  • Some people update their status from their cell phones & they are used to texting

  • If they are using their cell.. its understandable..
    But yes a bit annoying if they are doing it from their computer.. Really.. If your in such a hurry & cant type right, then maybe you should skip Facebook all together! Honestly 99% of what is on facebook is stupid & kinda self-serving "look everyone cares about my every part of my day"... No really.. They DONT!

  • I don't even want to see that crap on an actual text. I sure don't want to see it in a place they can really type it out.

  • I enjoy the updates and knowing what my friends are up to or how they are feeling. Luckily I don't have any friends that do the constant, 'Getting in the shower then off to work' followed by 'is at work bored' followed by 'is gonna eat McDonald's for lunch today' lol. I had one and I had to 'hide' her. I didn't need to read 7 updates a day! Most my friends only update every 2-3 days anyway.
