10 Brutally Honest Reasons Your Facebook Friends Hate You

by Stefanie Favicchio


FacebookBreaking news here, guys: Facebook is not as cool as it used to be. You hear it all the time, OMG I hate Facebook. I'm totally deleting it. Tons of people tend to blame Mark Zuckerberg or even Facebook itself. But it's time to know the truth.

Facebook is not the problem. The people on Facebook are the problem. And -- GASP! -- you may be one of them.

You're totally ruining Facebook for everybody else if ...

1. You now resort to multiple social media sites to share the same exact photo. We get it. You're in Vegas. But you don't need to tweet it, Instagram it, Facebook it, MySpace it (LOL), etc.

2. #You'reNotFoolingAnyone. Don't write #NoFilter on a photo if it clearly has a filter. Actually, don't write #NoFilter at all. How about this: If you take a picture of a beautiful sunset, I'll just believe it's real.

3. You don't realize how conceited you look. I've seen actual collages of just someone's face. A selfie collage, if you will. Remember modesty? It still exists.

4. You're a dude who takes kissy face photos in the mirror. I'm not going to elaborate on this one. It pains me.

5. You think you're famous. I don't know how this started happening but suddenly people think they're a celebrity if they have a lot of friends/followers on social media sites. Bonus points for the ones who thank their "fans" on the regular.

6. You update way too frequently. You know how you're supposed to wait at least an hour before you swim after eating a meal? Think of Facebook statuses in the same way. Please.

7. You don't update enough. Statuses like "BEST DAY EVER!!!!" are ridiculous and you know it. You want people to ask -- you're practically begging people to ask. So you might as well just tell us.

8. Your priorities are all out of whack. God forbid, you get in some sort of accident ... your first thought should NOT be, I should totally post a photo of this on Facebook.

9. You're SUCH a good person. While it's absolutely wonderful if you help the homeless, help an old lady cross the street, or donate to a charity, it IS actually possible to do it without bragging about it online. Sounds crazy, but it's true.

10. You friend people you don't even know. What the hell? Who are you? No. This is not match.com.

I have way too many annoying friends on my list. I need to delete a few more! Braggers, liars, etc.

I'm one of the annoying people who overposts photos of their kids.  I admit I do this to let out of state friends and family keep up to date, but I realize that it probably annoys the rest of my casual fb friends who feel compelled to be polite and "like" my pics.  Oh well...

Yep.  I have one who posts pictures of her dog all dressed up constantly... gifts people give her, selfies, etc. She's either insecure or full of it.  I can't decide.  Also have a girl who bitches about other Moms when she's not the best role model herself.  Another guy who posts half naked pictures of himself.  I mean really? And then you have the ones who post 4384495849584954 photos of their baby in ONE position.  I could make a "flipbook" out of it.

LOL! That's funny.   At least you admit it! It's weird... I used to not look twice at people's kids before I became a Mom.. Now I'm two months in, and I'm closer to other Mom's and think every single picture is cute.

How about the ones that complain about their SO cheating on them. Then their next status is about how they're in love and will always be together no matter what.

The one that can't brag or be happy unless they're putting someone down.

The habitual whiner and over sharer.

The one that thinks that everything that they say HAS to be the truth.

The one whose updates are all complaining about other peoples updates.

The only two people I find annoying on my Facebook is my ex-SIL and my DD's stepmom. SIL is constantly quoting scripture and making "I love Jesus/God/Church" posts. The stepmom is a combination of one of those vague posters (i.e. "I'm about to go off! I don't need this drama right now!") and the kind that constantly gushes over her children. Any positive post she makes is followed up with "I love my babies *insert complete full names here*" I would unfriend them, but it would be regarded as an insult and drama would ensue.
