Facebook Pet Peeves

I’m not on Facebook ALL the time, but I do use it quite a bit for my position at church and to keep up with far away friends.  However, it’s started to become ANNOYING!  I’d delete the whole damn thing, but I like the ease of communicating with those friends.   Things I’m tired of reading/seeing on Facebook:

-One note Nancy’s:  PLEASE tell me that there’s more going on in your life than the same posts and pictures that you put on your Facebook.  If not, then I’m not sure I can talk to you in real life, cause your online life is very monotonous. 

-Child Milestones:  I think some of my parental friends need to layoff of Facebook and put that info/percentiles & pictures in a memory/scrapbook.  I’m glad you’re excited that your child finally got the hang of potty training (or in their words, "POOed and pee-peed on the potty"), but most of us don’t want to see the accompanying photos.  Seriously.  {I just hope that all those milestones are being recorded somewhere other than FB.  I understand that it's a big accomplishment....but sorry, my enthusiasm will never match yours}

-Daily “Selfies”:  I couldn’t be more grateful for the HIDE/UNSUBSCRIBE option!!  How vain do you really need to be to:
A) think we all want to see what you’re wearing or your make up choice every single day?
B) take a picture of yourself, every single day, and post it?

-Rants about your significant other:  If you’ve got a problem with him or her, go deal with it in PRIVATE or vent to a friend. Putting your significant other on blast makes YOU look lame and won’t get any sympathy from me. 

I’m sure I’ve probably annoyed one or a few of my Facebook friends with something I’ve posted.  I try not to.  My biggest pet peeve are the One Note Nancys.  I’ve tried my hardest not to post every little {and big} thing about my relationship with Levi.  It’s easy to do because I don’t want EVERYTHING out there.  Some things just don’t need to be shared.  Plus, I’m sure he doesn’t want a million FB notifications because of something I’ve tagged him in.  Besides,  I try to think of things from others’ perspective; Would I want to see and hear the same thing over and over and over and over??  No, I would get sick of it!  So I try not to shove every detail of my relationship with him down everyone’s throat.   I’ve already had a couple friends promise to punch me in the ovaries if I ever got that bad.  I hope I’m a long ways away from that, because I just realized that I didn’t make this pact with my weakest of friends.

Dang it.

Haha! I'm a one-noter.... All I post about is exercise, food and Herman the dog.

I like to think I did pretty good not going on a huge rant about the ex. O:-)
