We all have (or have had) certain friends on Facebook that make us want to punch the screen every time they post. If you’re lucky, they’re just an acquaintance or even just a random add and you can unfriend them and never have to read another of their unbearable status updates again. Sometimes the offender is someone close to use and we just have to deal with them for fear of hurting their feelings. Either way, here is a list of the most annoying people to ever log in to Facebook.
- The DJ
These are the people who will shamelessly plaster your news feed with one horrible music video after another. If you discover an amazing new song or band, or even if you just have a random little ditty stuck in your head and feel the need to share it with the world, that’s fine. If you feel the need to post every crappy song you’ve ever heard over the course of an hour, please don’t. Nobody wants to sift through 109 pointless YouTube videos just to see what the rest of their friends are up to.
- The Mystery Writer
I have a few of these particular people on my friends list and they irritate the fool out of me. Every status they post grabs your attention, but they are so vague you have no idea what they’re talking about. They post things like “So mad!!!” or “I just got the best/worst news ever!” Naturally, we get curious and want to know what is so awesome or so terrible. This wouldn’t be so bad if that person would answer the 57 comments asking the same thing over and over, but they never do. Ever. They just leave you hanging. Obviously it is their business and they are not obligated to share every detail of their lives with the rest of us, but why post anything at all if they don’t plan on divulging any information at all?
- The Doting Mom
I have two beautiful kids that I love more than I ever thought I could love anything in my entire life. I am so proud of them and I love showing them off. I post cute little pictures and funny little anecdotes and share their milestones and achievements like any normal proud Mama would do. I completely understand other parents wanting to show off their little ones, but some go a little overboard. These are the moms who post 50 pictures of the same thing. “Here’s little Susie sleeping…and here she is still sleeping…and here she is still asleep, but with her head tilted slightly to the left.” These are the moms who update their status every time their kid breathes. “Little Johnny lost his 13th tooth today” “Little Johnny just sneezed” “Little Johnny just pooped.” Nobody cares. Please stop.
- The Model
This Facebooker rarely posts anything of interest. Instead, they seem to spend their days in front of the bathroom mirror with their camera phone snapping duckface photos to litter our news feeds with. I have no problem with people posting pictures of themselves. In fact, I enjoy it. I don’t see my friends nearly as much as I would like and it’s nice to see their smiling faces every now and then. However, “every now and then” does not mean every hour on the hour.
- The Drama Queen
This one is pretty self explanatory. To this person, everything is a big deal. Almost all of their posts are negative, aggressive, in all caps, and followed by an unnecessary amount of exclamation points. They are almost always looking for attention or a fight. It’s like they never left middle school. Now don’t get me wrong, sometimes these posts can be very entertaining…but usually they’re just annoying. The best way to handle this type of person is to roll your eyes and keep scrolling.
- The Liker/Sharer
I’m not sure what started this whole “Like if you love God”, “Like if you remember _____”, “Like if you ever _____” “1 like = 1 prayer”, “Share if you ____”, but it’s terrible and these people will like every single one they see. If the picture has some sort of relevant message or is humorous I can look past it, but 99.9% of them are pure garbage. “Like for Heaven, keep scrolling for Hell.” Really?! No. I refuse to believe that anybody will ever get the Pearly Gates and hear “Well you were a wonderful, kind, generous person, but you didn’t like that picture of Heaven on Facebook 50 years ago.” This trend has gotten way out of hand and it needs to stop.
