For me it's the people you engage but they don't respond back. You see them posting on Facebook, but only one way. You can "lead by example" and occasionally like their posts, occasionally like their pictures, even respond to them often enough... and nothing. You can directly address them... and nothing. You can try again another day - maybe they missed it... and nothing.

It's kind of like talking to someone face to face and they listen, take it in, then turn and walk away.

What's yours?

"Vague-booking", those people that love to post vague statements designed to make others ask "What's the matter? Are you OK? CAll me...I love you!", etc.

Also I've had it up to here with the ultra-conservative anti-Obama BS posts. I can handle a little political stuff around election time, but some of these folks are insane. The type that want to build bunkers and stock ammo on a ranch in Montana types. I figure if I have nothing more in common with you than two HS classes 20+ years ago and you're posting stuff like that, I probably don't need you in my friend list anymore.

Vaguebooking makes me absolutely crazy. Stuff like "feels super guilty" or "that was stupid" or "I'm so upset right now" or something else that prompts friends to ask "what happened" only to be told "I'll PM you" or "I'll tell you next time I see you". I hate it!! Whenever I see one I want to post "God, I hate vaguebookers" but without directly calling someone out it feels rather ironic so I deal with it in silence.

Honestly, that is my only real facebook pet peeve that drives me bonkers. The annoyance factor goes up a million notches when someone posts something vague, 50 people say, "oh, what's wrong?" and the vaguebooker writes back something like, "Gertrude, I private messaged you!" like Gertrude is the only person out of 50 who is worthy to know what is going on. I don't even respond to posts like that anymore.

I have two.

A coworker that never likes or comments on my posts on Facebook but in person will ask me about them. Feels creeperish to me for some reason.

Another coworker that constantly complains about not having money in person and on FB and constantly checks-in and posts about the things she is spending on.

Vaguebooking is the worst. A couple of years ago I hid all posts from the people that were always posting vague things. Just tonight I was looking to hide posts from somebody else now who has my other thing that drives me nuts:

All of the motivational pictures or pictures with animals with cute sayings or pictures that say "I love my son" or whatever other family member. I have one friend that must check her email really early in the morning before going to work because every morning I take a quick look at mine before getting out of my car at work. I always have to scroll through about 20 pictures from this friend. I never have time to read any real stuff because all of my time is spent scrolling through her crap.

It hasn't been as bad lately, but for awhile there were posts asking for people to like it. The "Dad said we can get a puppy if 1 million people like this post" type of things.

I don't have a facebook account anymore.

I was critized by friends for not liking every.single.photo that they posted on their page.

I only used facebook to keep in touch with family members who live far away.

It was my facebook account. Do not tell me that I must 'like' everything that you post.

Yes, vaguebooking is very annoying. Also, people who constantly post negative updates... their life sucks, their husband sucks, their kids suck, their jobs sucks, no one likes them, wah, wah!

And I really HATE when people add me to groups without asking my permission first. I really don't have the time to check in with groups on there and the ones I am added to have been of no interest to me. I come home to my e-mail inbox filled with hundreds of messages from a group I had no interest in joining. I wish there were some way that you had to approve or not whether you could join a group without people just sticking you in there.

Her kids are perfect. Her daughter is ranked 5th in the world in math. Her mute, delayed son has made a complete reversal in only two months at a special preschool and is now a perfect student and tops in the district.

She thoroughly enjoys being a perfect 50's housewife and waiting on her husband hand and foot.

I absolutely refuse to respond to PVM vaguebooking posts. I hate htem.

I also refuse to acknowledge the posts that end with...'and I know 90% of you won't repost this, but to the 10% who will, God loves you." I loathe blatant, manipulative behavior.

But my newest one is hashtagging. Seriously. It doesn't even work on FB.

I love my cousin - she is smart, funny, sweet, and kind.

But I REALLY don't care about her daily tennis schedule. Every morning she posts her tennis schedule for the day. Or why she isn't playing that day. And I don't care about the results of her daily tennis matches, which she posts every afternoon.

I'm also not interested in seeing nearly daily pictures of her dogs - usually just sitting in the same chair.

My pet peeve at the moment, since I've just hidden three of them, are the ones that say "let's see who posts this, 98% of you won't, who are the 2% who hate cancer" (or whatever). These make me crazy.

Facebraggers. I have a few who the only things they have to post about is what they spend money on. One will post pics of every outfit she buys for her DD, in the past year we've seen her new SUV, 2 or 3 new ATVs, jewelry, etc. There were all day updates when she went Black Friday shopping. We get it, you have a lot of money to spend (or a lot of debt).

Another one will not only post photos of things she's bought, but will post the amount spent on it. She's got a 58,000.00 car, paid 239.00 for her DD's homecoming dress and 700.00 each for her dogs.

Then there's the hovermoms that post about how overly attached they are with their kids and codependent to their DH, can't stand to be away from them for a minute, etc' then post the next day asking for advice on how to get the kid more socialized because he's shy and won't open up.

I swear, some people must never look back at their own timelines to see some of the silliness they post.

Vaguebookers mostly.

Here's one the other day:

Guy: <checks in at restaurant with his fiancee) "Dinner is so much better when you have something to celebrate "

friend - "What are we celebrating"
Guy back to friend: I'll tell you later.
Girl: Is there a bun in the oven!?!?
couple: No, no buns in the oven!

That was like 4 days ago. Never did see what they were celebrating. She just got laid off and he got fired over something dumb, so I was hoping one of them got a job and would have been excited, but the vaguebook just annoyed me.


I also have a friend who 'shares' every single 'i love dogs' pictures every day. I love dogs too, but if I wanted to see every picture they posted, I would like their page. Stop it!

I hate the political rants from both sides, too. The rants always twist the truth and get all mouth foamy about the dumbest stuff. I have unfriended people over them.

I did find that if I selected "only show important" for my SIL I didn't get her motivational picture reposts anymore. That was life changing.

Although the cartoon going around this morning about how Idaho is going to be banned because it looks vaguely gun-like was hilarious.

1 friend rarely responds. To anyone. It's kind of rude. He seems sincere when he does engage on facebook but for the most part leaves posts unanswered on his wall. I think that has to do with his controlling girlfriend not wanting him to talk to other females. Although male friends will post that he doesn't return their phone calls.

1 friend is an attention wh0re. A million "look at me" posts everyday about how fabulous she and her life is. The truth is, she is trying to convince herself & everyone else how "happy" she is.

1 friend posts about running constantly. But I've heard from another friend who tried to do a race with her that she doesn't actually run, she walks the entire thing. Why lie and make it seem like running is your life? Seriously every post for over a year is about running and marathons. And she hasn't lost a pound. People are beginning to wonder.

1 friend threatens to quit facebook every week. Makes a dramatic "goodbye you won't be seeing me here" post and then within the hour he has 5 new updates.

I have finally hidden a few FB friends whom I really only want to see photos of their family and hear updates. I don't agree with their political stance . . . and they seem to have a lot of time to post and repost their point of view! So maybe I'll go back and select only important posts and see if that works?

Stupid political posts that have no truth in them.
Really right wing or left wing posts


Currently it is a friend's little sister who keeps posting how much her wedding is going to cost and that she can't afford it and that we should all vote for her in some contest because she really wants X, Y, Z...

I'd block her, but it might offend my friend.

I have one friend that must check her email really early in the morning before going to work because every morning I take a quick look at mine before getting out of my car at work. I always have to scroll through about 20 pictures from this friend. I never have time to read any real stuff because all of my time is spent scrolling through her crap.


---------
(Sorry, can't seem to make it quote on my phone).

This. I know someone who is super sweet but posts 10 of these things in a row, twice a day. I don't want to hide her and miss her REAL news, but it's annoying as heck.

Also in the same manner, the religious photos, stories, Bible verses... another friend posts these throughout the day and they just annoy me. I have no problem with the message, but it's just sort of overkill.

The "feel sorry for me posts", as in "I'm so depressed....". You probably aren't truly depressed if you are posting it on FB.
And anything medical - I don't need to know about your gyno appt or biopsy on fb, or stuff like that.

This drives me bonkers, too. More often than not, a week later they change their relationship status to "separated" or "divorced".

Vaguebooking drives me nuts as well as crazy political crap. I have actually unfriended a few people who are constantly complaining/whining. I always tell my husband I really liked so and so until we became facebook friends and have to see all the negativity.

Endless anti-men sayings and motivational quotes about moving on/I am who I am/I'm so over you etc etc shortly followed by tales of what the relevant man just did to piss her off.


and this....

"And only people who TRUELY love Jesus/Country/Autism/Puppies will re-post this"



Nothing is more likely to make me ignore a post than threats of that sort

I have an attention whore friend with a rockin body who changes her profile picture three times a week so everyone will compliment her in her bikini shots. She has the body karate but it gets annoying to see her boobies all.the.time. She lives in her bikini, I swear.

I have another childhood friend that for the last 20 years since I have been Mormon telling me I am basically going to hell and that God is not pleased with me. When I looked in her profile she states she is AGNOSTIC! I thought that was so ironic. Actually, that IS amusing. OK, I am done being pissed about that.

While being LDS generally brands a person as a conservative. I am one of those rare Democratic Mormons. I only get conservative rants. I have never even heard a liberal rant. Not even one for some balance. I don't believe that liberals do rant because I am choking on the conservative crap that is on my news feed.

It is interesting how Facebook has changed my feelings about people. I see a side to them that I just wouldn't get by normal means. I have a couple of friends that I sort of accepted their requests because I felt like I couldn't just ignore them. By their posts I saw a great side of them that I might have missed without Facebook. I have gotten closer to a couple of people because of that.

They both post dozens of pictures of animal neglect/abuse photos a week with please for adoption/save the animals/ etc. These photos really bother me as I think about them for a long time. It is like watching the Sara McGlocklin (sp!) commercial every time I hop on Facebook. I finally had to hide their posts because I couldn't take it anymore.

Vaguebooking is a close second.

I have a "friend", who babysits my nephew, and occasionally posts adorable pics of him. That's why she's on my list. But she posts SO many things, usually animal stuff, *Facebook* cuts her off. I'm not joking 20 or 30 shares in a row, morning and night. I have others who also have their favorite issues and post multiple times about it daily.

I hate the "copy and paste" this status thing. I never do it.

I dislike people with multiple posts pimping their business. Every so often, I don't mind, or a separate page they link to, but constant posts get old.

And I have one woman who posted about everysingleounce she lost, for a year! Probably 10 diet related posts a day for a year. with several pics a day. I'm not joking. I'm ready to congratulate my friends who have successes in life. But that's ridiculous. I've lost almost 40 lbs but I don't blast about it all over FB. I prefer to surprise my friends when I see them in person.

I also hate whiney people on FB, but I hate that in general.

Oh, and i forgot about the women who are constantly taking "sultry" self portraits with their cell phones and changing their profile pics, hoping to get compliments. For some reason, it bothers me worse when women in their 30's and 40's do this. I expect such silliness from teenagers.

I think vaguebooking tops the list. Then it's the "If you don't like me, just tell me/ignore my posts", but if you do that's another whole pity party right there. Also, "I think it's time to take a break from facebook" where they expect everyone to tell them not to go. That lasts what seems like 2 minutes (but is in actual fact, 24 hours..maybe) until they are back saying "Who missed me?". A bunch of meme's regarding true friends may follow. Another one is where they don't like your response to something they post so they delete it all, even when it's not bad and you're just nicely disagreeing or pointing out something.

Apparently, I have a lot of facebook dislikes.

Gilly.

Vaguebookers

I have a friend (well aquaintance who volunteers in the same organisation as me) posts looooong daily blog style status about her dd- what she is wearing, what she had for breakfast. The dd is 8 ( i would probably let her off if it was a newborn, and ends every post with GOOD MORNING WORLD (in caps)

Then I have a friend who is in the middle of a messy divorce and posts things like "Grrr...men. How can he even think that is OK????" to which several people oblige and ask what has he done, to which she responds "i'll pm you" to certain people (but I'm not in her inner circle!)

I aslo have friend who went back to art school doing fine art. All she posts now is weird art shots of paint splatters- and I mean about 10 a day. I'm happy she is enjoying her art- but please!

Also in the same manner, the religious photos, stories, Bible verses... another friend posts these throughout the day and they just annoy me. I have no problem with the message, but it's just sort of overkill.


Add me to this one and anything that ends with, "I know 97% of my friends won't re-post this." Blech.

The friends that post every quote from pinterest or every YouTube video they come across. So annoying to weed through those. Political rants too.

All that.

Plus the daily animal rescue pictures. I live in a different country, I can't help, those pictures are just upsetting me. Hide.

Plus I hate how judgemental I am over other people's rubbish spelling and grammar. I sit there wondering whether 14-year-old Jonny has ever written a response to his father's (my friend) posts and got all of it right. I mourn the loss of the difference between were, we're, where and wear. Also their, there and they're. And loose and lose (yes I've got that friend who is walk-running and not "loosing" weight too). I could go on...

Off to try the "only important posts" tip. Like!

Like everyone else, I hate the vaguebookers, and unfortunately, I have a few of those. I pretty much deleted anyone who was super crazy posting political stuff. Right now, I find myself getting annoyed by the "share to win it" stuff. My feed seems to be loaded down with pics of cute stuff from places I have never heard of, most of them are not even local stores/businesses. Not sure why it bugs me so much, it just does. I'm also getting annoyed by the "I was born *this place* in *this year* and looking for my biological family". Those seem to be popping up alot lately too.

Vaguebook, posting the ups and downs of relationships online, and ALL CAPS if you don't suffer from a reason to need them.
