Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

on the topic of FB, wtf is up with using your baby for a profile pic? those mofos get filtered immediately.

microblogging parent, pretending their duties as a parent=good deeds
baby needed a change at 3:00am nobody said this parenting thing would be ez!

Does "gaa baa boo boo" count as a first word? If baby says MAMA first I will cry!

work 8 hours, commute 2 hours, missed my morning coffee, coming home to baby=priceless (**** THESE "PRICELESS" updates)

Trading in a life of partying was worth it for my baby! I love you!

Even if there was two words added on at the end of it explaining what happened that made it a great day it would be completely acceptable to me, but these kind can only be trumped by the equivalent but in a negative fashion stating something horrible happened, but not ever stating what it was.

thisssss. except i don't block anyone. a whole **** load of people do this. i'm assuming it's to boost their # of likes.

the majority of ppl on fb tilt the **** out of me. it always brings me back to the debate that maybe it's better to just live in ignorance

2. Seeing where my old acquaintances live, what they do for a living, if they're married, etc.

3. Looking at 4,000 drunk pictures of every hot slutbag from high school and college (and having those pictures at my disposal at all times).

Okay, #3 is really the only one of these that's actually important to me, but it's the main reason I haven't deactivated my account. And it's a damn good reason.
#4 which is literally the only reason I am on facebook is to get people out to events/concerts/shows and to build internet name recognition. Since everyone is on facebook and facebook has music fan pages, it is the easiest quick and dirty way to get people to come to your shows. My updates are almost exclusively music-related so people in my field (conductors, directors, instrumentalists and other singers) can see that I am working/moving my way up and my friends can keep updated on career stuff. I never post more than once a day and avoid spam invites (ie people who have a reasonable expectation to come to my show, not someone who lives in another country I met 8 years ago and never talk to).

Yeah, jesus this. And if a chick is pregnant keeping her family and friends informed is so ****ing standard. Obviously you can take it to far, but some complaints in here are just terrible.

Im kind of a dick too, I would say I have 60% of people blocked from my news feed but there is nothing wrong with having a your child as your profile pic.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

I love those people who use Facebook to microblog during their vacations -- but instead of updating with anything interesting, they feel the need to populate everyone's news feeds with completely mundane updates from their "awesome vacation". Here's one particularly pathetic exchange from two late-20's girls that I know during their recent trip to Key West:

Quote:
Girl #1 is making the best of her last day in paradise, aka going on every single water slide and having approximately 15 frozen drinks
to which girl #2 replied

Quote:
Girl #2Where are you guys? Separation anxiety is setting in...we've already gone down slide number 1 without you!!!!! And we're about to order a frozen cocktail.
These mouth breathers were actually using Facebook to communicate to one another. Ugh.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

I prefer the girl drama that I see all the time. Hilariously entertaining.

For example:

Girl #1's status is simply: "Not impressed. "

Every other girl I'm currently with start discussing it and wondering what it's about without even asking her.

The guys and I continue to play pool or cards.

Pretty much every weekend.

I think the main reason that this function hasn't been implemented in the site is that they want to promote and maintain a positive image. Plus, it's probably similar to the idea of the social etiquette where you put on a fake image when you go out with friends. You know, the one where everything in your life is in order and when people try to make small talk you BS your way through it as you finish your drink.

On a smaller scale it's like when you see an acquaintance and they stop to say hi they ask, "how is life?" What are you say? "Same old. Everything's fine. What about you?" What, are you really gonna ***** and moan complaining to this guy how you're stressed at work, you have debts up the ass, and the wife has been giving more **** as of late? Obviously, not. You're just gonna put on the fake "everything's cool" image.

In the same vein nobody wants that negative **** on FB with that one guy hating on everything. It makes things unpleasant.
