My name is Stephanie and I love me some Facebook. I flip over to it often
obsessively throughout the day liking post after post. Smiling, grinning and even occasionally laughing out loud. Now I know not all Facebook status updates are fuzzy and warm. I enjoy the snarky and the sassy, even the occasional sarcastic or braggy post, but there are some Facebook posts that I have quite simply had enough of and beg of you to never, ever post again.
#1. The Over sharer: “Oh I am so sick I was up puking all night. It was coming out both ends!” TMI people! If you want to post you are sick, go for it. Even use that silly little green face to really get your point across but enough with the descriptors of how many times you puked and what colour it was. Disgusting.
#2. The Compliment Whore: “Gawd I just hate this picture of myself.” or “Looking a little rough, but oh well”.” LIAR! Nobody every puts up pictures they truly hate of themselves. That would be just stupid. You are not stupid are you?
#3 The Vague Booker: “I have such exciting news I’m bursting. Oh, but I can’t tell you until tomorrow.” Then how about you just wait until tomorrow to tell us huh? How about that idea? Vague booking is so 2013.
#4 The Extreme Bragger: “Can’t believe I was just offered ANOTHER trip. Oh how to fit it all in?” Really, is this the kind of bragging you want to put out into the world? I think you can be proud, excited and gracious at the same time. Some people could do with working on a little balance.
* Flip side. Brag much? Yup. I get it, sometimes you do have to shout it from the rooftops, but can we please try and balance it out with a cute story about your kid, a personal goal you are working towards or how you paid it forward this week? Thanks.
#5 The Super Curser: I get it, every once in a while a girl has got to drop the F Bomb, but when you are cursing a blue streak in your Facebook Status updates, I am hitting unfriend. Related: I am a prude.
End of Facebook rant, for now? Have any you want to add?
