9 YOUR WORKOUT

  • Facebook is everywhere, and we use it to keep all the people we kinda don't want to talk to on a regular basis informed about our lives. Unfortunately, it's also a great way to overshare. Here are 9 things you do that you need to stop, right now.

  • Workout


    We hate to break this to you, but nobody cares how far you ran, how much weight you lifted, or how strong your abs are, and it's especially annoying when you have some app automatically update it, so basically you're automatically gloating. The only time you should be gloating about your body on Facebook is if you've either broken some form of world record, or nailed Kate Upton

8 WHAT YOU'RE LISTENING TO ON SPOTIFY

  • Spotify


    Granted, you need to log into Facebook in order to use Spotify, but you don't need to post every single song to your wall. This is for your health and sanity as much as everyone else's: we all have embarrassing taste in music we'd rather the world not know, like for example listening to "I Want Candy" on repeat for an hour. Nobody wants to admit it, but everybody does it. 

    Right? Right? Guys?

YOUR LUNCH!

Lunch

We're still not sure why people insist on posting photos of their food on Facebook. Unless you're a professional food stylist, your food is going to look bad, OK? That's just the way it is. Really, most of us only care about food if we're currently eating it. If we can't eat it, we don't care.

I would rather hear someone improving themselves and hear about their activities than to have people post graphics and crap all day!

I definitely agree about the workouts. Lol I don't give a shit! Clearly, they need attention and continual gratification.

YOUR TWITTER FEED

Twitter Feed

If you constantly update your Twitter, and have it linked to your Facebook, then your Facebook will constantly update. And then all your friends will hide you, especially if it's messages like "Just took a dump in the shape of a donut LOL". 

Really, Facebook is for friends and relatives you want to maintain a facade for, and Twitter is for the raging horny drunkard with no filters that we are in real life. It's important to keep the two separate.

5 "REPOST THIS IF YOU CARE ENOUGH TO FAKE THAT YOU CARE"

Every day, millions of people post messages on their Facebook wall about serious issues. They want to seem like they care without actually doing anything, and so appoint themselves the moral leader of their Facebook friends and demand that this message be reposted. 

You know what? Screw you. If you care so much about children in Uganda, or feline AIDS, or cancer, why not just donate a dollar to that cause instead of harassing us about it on Facebook?

4 YOUR VACATION PHOTOS

Vacation Photos

We don't get it. It's been a staple of hack comedians and cartoonists for decades that vacation photos blow and that nobody actually wants to look at them. And yet, they keep appearing. In swarms. Thankfully, Facebook is designed so you can ignore these photos while pretending to acknowledge them (this is what a "Like" on your photo really means). But still they keep coming.

YES YES YES, OP.  Was just talking about this with my dh today.  Sure, people can post whatever they like.  Free speech and all that and I don't have to read anything, but still....

The food one is my biggest pet peeve.  Maybe if you made something particularly difficult or had a meal that was really out of this world, but otherwise I don't need a post or photo about your chicken noodle soup.  I get it.  You eat.  Daily.
