The Recently Divorced Overweight Woman With Low Self-esteem Showing Us Her New "Empowered" Side:
one of my wife's friends, after a divorce, has been posting what I can only call a sad newly single woman's saga.....selfies from the bar, inspirational messages that all have meaning for only her (usually women empowerment, big women empowerment, divorced woman empowerment, jerk exhusband etc), pictures of the girls drinking (cosmos probably) and most unfortunately pictures of her with some Joe she met at the bar. Then for the next week, more inspirational veiled stuff about or directed at the guy she hooked up with. Then by week's end, inspirational stuff (translated into "its his loss") since he never calls back. And then its the weekend again and we all get to witness the same masochistic cycle all over again.
The worst is the constant onslaught of selfies taken at the same high angle to look thinner and show off big girl cleavage. They become profile pics and if you go to her profile pics you will see a couple of hundred of basically the same pic. With way too much information in the "comments" sections of each photo and post.
This obvious cry for help was interesting for a week or two, but six months in it's just become a big TMI-fest.
Unfollow........absolutely! There.....that's better. As I acquired her as a Facebook friend via my wife....I do believe I'll look for the "unfriend" button as well.....Im glad she's sorting stuff out but I don't need to witness everything.
sounds like we have similar friends LOL

How's this for something strange??????.....This one 30 year old has a husband in jail. He's been there for about 6 months. She has posted sexy pics of herself on her Facebook page and tagged his Facebook page. He's in jail. How the heck is he going to see it when he won't be released for a good long while? That makes no sense so the only people viewing her 'sexy' pics is her and her friends. What's the point?

Another funny thing is to read these sister's pages. One will do something and post about it and the next thing you know the other sister is copying and doing the same thing. If one goes to a certain event, the other will soon go herself. It's as if they are in competition and neither want the other to outdo them. It's quite entertaining and laughable to read.

^^^^ Cell phones are frequently smuggled into jails and are sought-after contraband.

My newest annoyance of the day...it used to be all the duck face pictures, now it's all the pics with people's mouths hanging open like they're saying "Hey!" What is up with that?

People who decline your friend request for no reason and then speak to you the next day as if nothing happened.

If the person has 724 friends, I would wonder about that. If they have 39 friends, I'd assume they don't accept friend requests from people that aren't closer friends or family. If they didn't decline it, but just didn't respond, some people are very slow about that. I recently had a former co-worker accept a friend request of mine. I made the request a year or two ago, and I'd forgotten about it. And she posts things on facebook a few times a week . I don't know what's up with that, but it's just facebook.

What I REALLY don't like now is your news feed is clogged with your friends commenting on THEIR friend's picture and you have a picture staring out at you that you have NO IDEA who they are..when did that start? It wasn't always like that..last week it happened and the picture was of the friend's friends father.....in his coffin..I was mortified!!!!

Sideways posted pictures are ridiculous too,.delete and fix please!!

People who post these philosophical phrases about a subject like hate or gossip..and they are the worst offender of them all..they can't see it...

And what really gets me are the people who post FML and they are saying so over something trivial like their cat threw up or a critter got into the garbage...or they cracked the screen of their cell phone...or they post those three letters and don't elaborate....

I deleted someone because I was sick and tired of her wine glass pictures among other things and then ran into her at a gathering and the first thing she asked me was WHY did you delete me? Don't even remember what I said..mumbled something....and walked away....

The 'people you might know' feature drives me nuts. Half the time I don't know who those people that they suggest are, and the other half I don't want to add to my friends list.

But the thing that really bugs me is I've had two family members that I haven't seen in ages send me friend requests.. so I thought great and added them, and then sent a little note asking how they were.

Neither one of them responded and it's been over a year so I doubt they will. Why? I'm baffled.

I just unfollowed everyone except the page representing for whom I work. I just can't stand all this stuff in my feed about "So-and-so likes this," when "this" is miles and miles away and I'll never use it, or an announcement from a friend about Young and the Restless when I haven't watched it in 30 years. I stopped wanting to view the little posters with sayings on them that others shared because a certain number of them are wishful thinking and some are just plain rabble rousing. I really only joined Facebook because my co-worker needed me to help her moderate the page for the business.

I don't find the people particularly annoying but I am puzzled over the stuff they post such as, "My car broke down," and "My daughter requested a vegetarian meal so this is what I made." How much is too much?

For most avid Facebook users, even for family members, it appears to be a numbers game. They need your head count only.
