Log in. Browse. Say notttttthing…
How many of us do this. Log in cos we’re bored, then half an hour later find we’re still on there, flicking through pictures of cats eating burgers and pictures of someone’s mum in Loret de Mar in 1984.
The Facebooker who just wants to be LIKED
It’s the equivalent of the kid at school in the homemade sweater who took the teacher an apple everyday. They still want to be liked, no matter what they’re doing. Even getting Facebook “likes” is vitally important to them. Because it validates their knitted sweatered existence.
I think we can answer this one for you…
It’s just Facebook. Log off, go for a walk. Go for a pint in the pub. Watch something on iPlayer. You’ll feel better about the world.
JUST LIKE MY STUFF…OK?
Take my like. Go on. Take it. Put it on your profile page and let the world know I just looked at the picture of your dog in a paddling pool.
Get the popcorn…
Those threads. We’ve all seen them. The ones that start off innocently enough – then two minutes later, World War III starts and you’re watching friends who’ve known each other for thirty odd years fall out and vow to never speak again. Then it all ends with a Hitler comparison. Then the thread gets deleted. Then a new post goes up to explain why the original post was deleted. Then the rowing starts again.
The ungrateful posters
“Yeah, I’m so popular I can’t be bothered to reply to every single person who has wished me a happy birthday, so here’s a picture of a cat in a party hat, eating jelly to express my gratitude!”
I’m sooooooo lucky LOL
Tell your other half you love them, but tell them to their face. Don’t post about it every single day on Facebook. People will only get wound up. Then…you know, when they cheat on you and you have to backtrack…and all the “broken hearted lol” posts appear. Not classy.
DELETE DELETE DELETE
You post something that you think is witty, erudite and exceptionally amusing. No-one else does. So if no-one likes it after 3 hours, you delete it. Then you get people posting on your wall to ask why you’re deleting your stuff…and you have to explain. “My dog ate it…”
Facebook solves everything
Cure for cancer? The medical profession have been looking in the wrong place the whole time. It was on Facebook. All they had to do was click “like” on the image of the girl on the life support machine, whose dying wish was to meet Benny from Crossroads.
The “rubs hands together* statuses
The attention seeking status makers who deliberately post vague and airy comments designed to ask for people’s sympathy. Then when people do ask “Oh, it’s nothing…I’ll inbox you”. DON’T POST RUBBISH LIKE THIS, JUST KEEP IT PRIVATE.
When no-one really does know your birthday
No-one really does know anyone else’s birthday now. They rely on Facebook to remind them.
The attention seeking posters who are “leaving social media – inbox me if you want to stay in touch”, then when no-one sends them a message, decide they’ll stay after all. Go away.
