Please tell me the point...

Why do people like their own FB statuses?  What is the point?  Of course you like your status...you wrote it for crying out loud!  

Tell me the point of "selfies" other than draw attention to yourself...they make people look so self-absorbed.  Taking a picture of yourself with your spouse/children is one thing, but just taking photos of yourself and posting them on FB is so annoying and just plain pointless.

Okay...I'm done.  It's been a long week, and it's only Wednesday.  I'm tired.  I'm really just annoyed at people in general, so I'm getting off the computer and going to bed!

Around of applause to you! You hit it on the head! I can see taking selfies if you spouse travels for work and you send them to him but not every picture online. But I don't even have facebook anymore so I'm worry free haha

I created an Instagram account a long time ago, but I don't have patience or time for it, so I never go on it.

I use my FB to share photos and updates about my son who is special needs and medically fragile.  I don't use my FB like a Twitter account where people post their every thought.  There are times I get on FB and I wonder what in the hell people do all day long if they have that kind of time on their hands to post the things they post!

Yes agree that's why I deleted my account to many pointless things and I figure if people really wanted to keep in contact that bad they will email me

I've accidentally liked my own stuff before, I unlike it when I notice. I want to know WHY FB gives me the option to like my own stuff, LOL.

I have actually unfollowed people on Instagram because of selfies, I know this one chick that 5x a day (no joke) she posts a selfie and it looks EXACTLY the same as the other 8,000 she's taken. There is nothing else on her IG, just the same selfie all over the place. Maybe she's being ironic, I don't know but I don't need to see pictures of anyone that much.

I don't mind some selfies. How else would we have profile pics? Haha. The same selfie 932 times gets to be a bit much, but they don't really bother me.
