Thursday Thirteen – Things I Hate About Facebook

I have a love-hate relationship with the Facebook. On one hand, I spend way too much time on there, but on the other hand, I am thankful that I can keep in contact with out-of-town friends and relatives.

I am so thankful that Facebook wasn’t around during my awkward, teenage years. It is anybody’s guess what manner of chaos I would have been involved in back then. I would love to think that even in the midst of chaos, I would be smarter than these girls today who post pictures while making a duck-face.

1. Which is the first thing I hate, HATE about Facebook – THE DUCK-FACE. Oh my word, I wish these girls would STOP making the stupid duck-face. It is never EVER flattering. In fact, it is stupid.

2. And speaking of pictures, I hate the Nike ones. Why are those things still circulating?

3. When people over-use words and phrases, such as: epic fail, just sayin, said no one ever, and amazing in their status updates.

4. I hate that people use Facebook to stir up family drama. It is inappropriate and juvenile. Keep your dirty laundry where it belongs, OFF OF THE INTERNET.

5. I triple HATE Facebook games. I have no desire to start a farm, own a cafe, play in a smurf village, or try my luck at the slots. STOP INVITING ME TO PLAY GAMES.I have blocked hundreds of games, yet I still receive requests for more. I think it may be time to block people who invite me to play the games.

6. I liked the plain ol Facebook that showed ALL status updates of all of my friends in the order in which they were posted. I hate this new format.

7. Sponsored posts are a pain in the butt. And yes, I hate them.

8.The “other” message folder. It is tough to do business on the Facebook yard sale when some of my messages land in the “other” folder which is apparently not accessible on my beloved iPhone.

9. I like choices. I have grown tired of Facebook’s BLUE theme. I think it would be fun if we could color customize our page. Mine? Would be pink.

10. I hate that I’m not always able to see who my friends are friends with.

Nosy, much?

11. That I can’t always delete posts or comments from my phone. Sometimes it is necessary to delete stuff.

12. I hate that I can’t see who has “de-friended” me.

Yes, I am that nosy.

13. And lastly, I hate that there is not a DISLIKE button.

Because I would dislike at least 11 of these items on a daily basis.

Have a great weekend, y’all!

    OH DEAR GUSSIE!! I agree with each and everyone of these!!! Especially the game request and the duck face! (I sure hope I have not accidentally sent you something). Anywho, I was wondering if I could ask a favor of you…Could you please put a family on your prayer list?? A dear family that I grew up with just lost their father and their son. The son killed his father and wounded his younger brother and is now facing murder charges. It is sad. So just wondering if you could say a prayer? Thanks a lot. Still loving your blog and know that I am praying for McDaddy, You and Stevie and Alex during this deployment. Please thank McDaddy for his service from some pretty good folks here in Houston, TX. We truly appreciate all he does for our country and freedom.

    I despise the duck face! I am one of those that uses just sayin’ way too much. I have my friends list hidden. I don’t want people friending me just to spy on my friends list. And I have blocked every game known to man… or so I thought. Developers just keep making more. Now, my problem is I linked Words With Friends and Song Pop to my facebook and now I get a notification from the app on my phone AND from facebook.

    Gotta agree with you on all of these, except for not knowing who defriends me. I say good riddance. I also hats the cryptic status like “today is the worst day of my life!!! ” Then when 20 people ask them what’s wrong or what happened, they never answer. Just leave you hanging lol.
    The 911 family here in Virginia are also praying for the McFamily! I can not imagine what you all are going through.

    I am so with you on number 6. The UK has started sponsored posts recently and they drive me crazy and take up most of the status page which just adds to not being able to see things in the order they were posted.

    I’d love a dislike button and the ‘dirty laundry’ posts are the first ones that would get that hit – why oh why do you want the world and his wife to know your business….

    Hope you are holding up okay Julie xx
