FIVE annoying things about Facebook

Facebook: we’re hooked on it, and we hate it with equal measure. And so, here’s our list of the Top 5 annoying things about Facebook.

5
The poke

This is probably the most useless feature of Facebook. Its sole purpose is to annoy people, and fill my email with Facebook notifications.

4 People liking their own posts

If you didn’t like what you posted, why would you post it? ’Nuff said.

3 Seeing Facebook friends in real life

This always leads to awkwardness. Do I wave? Should I smile? Would it be weird if I said hi? Am I a dick if I don’t say anything? Well he added me, so he must like me. I’ll just pretend not to see him so that I don’t have to make an awkward attempt at friendship.

2 Family members

This is always a double-edged sword. You know you’re going to regret adding them because you really don’t want your family constantly creeping on you, but if you don’t, you know that you’re going to hear about it because they’re going to take it personally. Personally, I’ll take the awkward question of “why didn’t you accept my friend request?” at the next family gathering because I really don’t need my family seeing pictures of drunk me in an adult diaper.

1 Unnecessarily descriptive status updates

“Bed, school, work 1:30-8, watching Gossip Girl and 90210.” Sent from text. Thank God that she informed me that she was going to bed, because you can’t just assume things like that. People sleep at night? Oh, and for what fucked up reason does anyone need to know or care about what you are watching on television that night? Seriously.
