Top 10 Most Annoying Things About Facebook

Posted at 5:05 AM Oct 07, 2008

by Andrea Grimes

Once upon a time, the sentence "Everybody and their mom is on Facebook!" would have been gross hyperbole for the fact that the social networking site started allowing non-Ivy Leaguers to sign up. Now, everybody. And. Their. Mom. Is. On. Facebook. Yes, even your mom, who's probably not as tech-savvy as my very tech-savvy mom, who's also on Facebook. Many people find this annoying.

I don't. I'm enough of an overly judgmental snob in my real daily life; being on all-encompassing social networks allows me to briefly consider the feelings of people I dislike before going back to sheer ambivalence. So no, it's not the problem of the seething masses that I dislike about Facebook. Oh no, why pick that when there are so many more things to hate?

10. The "People You May Know" feature

Look! It's Tim, the creep from my freshman year biology class who put me on the spot after the lab one day and asked if I wanted to go get Chipotle in front of everybody and then didn't stop IM'ing me for a whole year! And Kara! Hi, Kara! I do know you, because you made fun of the fact that I had rip-off Doc Martens sandals in the 7th grade and somehow used this fact to convince everyone on on the volleyball B-team that I was a lesbian! HI KARA!!! OMG. Meeemmmmooooriiieeezzzz.

9. TMI

You haven't lived until you've read this status update on your News Feed: "Paul is excited because his wife is dilated to 9 cm!!! WHAT A BLESSING!"

8. Photos of your baby

Here is a serious, serious tip for all my twenty-something Facebook friends who are giving birth: nobody except for your blood relatives and the poor schmucks you talked into being in your wedding has any interest in seeing 790 photos of your brand new naked rat. Unless someone has asked to see a photo of your baby, don't upload all 790 into your photo album and clog up my nice, baby-free News Feed. I know you don't want to believe this, but people give birth every single day, and what you have done is create a miracle of poor judgment, not a miracle of life. Once your child becomes old enough to wear ridiculous clothing and make funny faces, we may lift this rule, but only in moderation.

7. Mob Wars

Somebody want to tell me what this game is about? I get about 12,293,305 invites every day and I do not want to join! Yes, I was sure when I turned down your request four months ago, and I was sure when I turned it down three weeks ago, and I am still sure I don't want to join Mob Wars today. And don't even get me started on Lil' Green Patch. Virtual violence sounds a lot more fun than virtually being in the AARP.

6. "It's Complicated"

If your relationship is so damned complicated that you have to identify it as such on your Facebook profile, get the hell off Facebook and go fix your relationship.

Wow. You really covered the worst offenses Facebook has to offer, especially with number one. There's a ton of people from my high school who friended me, though I barely know them, and about half of them are crazy gun nuts and Palin lovers. It makes me uncomfortable.

dandellion said:

Most annoying thing about FB for me was that insisting on all that personal data. Real name? Hey, this is web, all right, let's behave sane and keep some privacy. But no, let's not stop there. Give us your photo or you will be banned (this actually happened many times). Where do you live? And, of course, your phone numbers? I simply can't believe they still haven't started asking for social security numbers.

And when you combine that with impossibility to delete the account you have one huge database of people's personal data. Then you ask how that thing is monetizing? From advertisements? Yeah, right.

Bonnie said:

Aw, I really like the "it's complicated" status. Sometimes it's just complicated :).

Merritt said:

Applause!!

John said:

Re: #9 and #8 - I love you. Can I Facebook friend you?

;)

Rikushix said:

Dandelion: you don't like Facebook, you don't use it. I'm all for privacy but I enjoy being a part of a social network which is a collection of REAL people, with no aliases or anything of that sort.

I don't want to look through a network I'm part of and see that someone has some ridiculous joke name. It's meant for finding people in real life that you know and communicating. You want your high-school profile pages and wacky personalization, go back to Myspace or get a blog.

And they don't require ANYTHING other than your real name. Your phone number? Where you live? Pics or it didn't happen, bitch. You want to keep everything private you can. But then what would be the goddamn point of being a part of a SOCIAL NETWORK if the people you know can't even identify who you are.

I personally was made to start a facebook profile by my college professor. Yea, I am totally serious he actually used it as part of the grade, but he also polayed in a christian rock band that played at coffee shops and he gave extra credit if you attended...... This mind you was a Computer science Prof. Needless to say I never made it to the coffe shops, but I did do the facebook scam, I wonder how many other profs used this method to promote facebook?


has a unique identifier system in place where you can send messages to anyone you see in traffic! That's right people all you need to know is their license plate and their state to send them a message, you may have one waiting for y9ou if your a bad driver...lol.. I like they don't make you create a profike to send messages, but you can create a profile if you choose, and only put the information YOU want to put! it's Revolutionary!

pfft said:

this blog requires my email...? That's worse than real name, but of course I can fake that just like you could fake a real name on FB... Anyway. Re: mob wars. You know you can just block the app requests altogether, right?

Anon said:

You forgot every one on it.

T said:

Everything on my Facebook is fake. My name, my email...everything. The friends I have are my real friends and I just explain to them in person that I'm under a fake name on Facebook. My pics are real, but without a real name or email addy, I can't be found by knuckleheads. I set my privacy settings UBER-high and run under the radar. I also block all the irritating apps people keep trying to add me to.

But...

I still like MySpace better.

Mortira said:

Facebook is truly depressing. I started an account as a way to get people to look at my websites. It's not working, but man do I have a lot of Facebook friends! I talk to 5 people in real life, yet there are all kinds of people who want to put my face on their enormous 'friends' list. I get so many requests from people that I pretend not to recognize in the grocery store, I'm starting to wonder if they actually know who I am. Maybe they just click 'Add' to every person in the 'People you may know' box. Lame.

Blunt the Squirrel said:

I'm with T fake everything, if I befriend someone on FB it is because they are my actual real friend in real life.....do people actually put their real info on there just because a log in page tells them to? SHEEP

Luke said:

Very good collection of Facebook Offences, with a couple of minor tweaks:

- The Baby Photos One: People who use their baby photos as their profile photos are also frustrating - specifically ones where the only person in the photo is the child. How the hell am I meant to recognise you when you "friend" me, if all I have to go on is a photo of a person who, at best, contains 50% of your genetic matter?

- The Facebook Stalker: (Suffered this recently.) People who you add as a friend, only to have them trawl through the tagged photos, the wall posts, the other friends, and all the rest, and then use that information against you. Had an ex do that recently and decide to try and make my life hell - not fun.

Dennis Eldridge said:

I dunno. I'm on there, but every time I log in (very rarely), I just stare blankly at the utter mess that it is. It looks like a pile of junk, with applications, walls, lists, shouts, message thingies. I basically zone out after trying fruitlessly to get anything done in there, and just quit.

And all my "friends" taking stupid quizzes and spamming everyone in their book to take the thing as well.

It's a waste of space for me, frankly.

paulierocks said:

Yeah, bummer about number 1. So far, my older friends and I have remained pretty closely aligned, but ya know, we're smart-assed, questioning liberals who read BOOKS. Number 5 was funny for bitch-slapping the people who do that lazy, dipshit text message style writing. YUCK!!!

knock said:

I'm glad the 10th one was on there. I un-friended a guy (I barely know) because he was posting things about "Obama's dirty secrets" etc.

Family Matters said:

I SOOOOO agree with you on the relationship point!

Nevertheless, these things aren't annoying about Facebook, because the same things could annoy you anywhere in your relationships with people. You may need to learn to stay away from certain people and assertively tell them to &$#@ off, or just to ignore little things others do that may not suit you right now (like having a baby).

Either way, excellent post.

Ben said:

My complaint about FB is the loss of exclusivity. Back in the day, you joined, put your personal info in, and the only people who had any access at all were people in a few universities. Then they added high schools, which was the biggest mistake in history, and then they started letting everyone in. Now my mom and old sunday school teacher want to be my friend, so no more dirty sex quotes in my profile.

tao54 said:

I clicked "it's complicated" because there is no selection that says: "My wife is a needy, emotionally manipulative psycho-bitch who lives 3000 miles away from me and I can't serve the fucking papers to her."

So...I'm not "married" in a real sense, I'm not "divorced", ad I'm not legally "single" either. So WTF do you expect?? "It's complicated".

Fuck you.

Jason said:

Had me right up until #1. Way to insult half of your potential reader base; but I guess all you have to do to get on the front page of Digg is to insult Republicans.

Julie said:

Wow! I'm not the only one with simular thoughts...The friends "Addlist"...to name at least one.
I'm here for friends and family. Now its seems to have turned into something else. But it's people who have created this So don't blame it on the face-book it self.
You can always delete your-self or the people you have on it.

D Maxwell said:

Facebook does have a very useful feature called "settings" that you can use to deal with a few of the issues you raise. Perhaps you should look into it.

LadyDutch said:

This is a really funny article, and so much of it rings true!! However, I must comment on your comment of, "There's a reason it's impolite to talk about politics in casual conversation." .....and perhaps there's a reason why it's impolite to talk about it in "blogs" too... I'm a Republican.... and so is about half of the country. ;)

Jan said:

This article is funny yet some of the posts are true and helpful. But still I love facebook. :)

My favourite was "790 photos of your brand new naked rat".

Herpes Remedies said:

That is why I would recommend that every man and every woman who is affected by the herpes simplex virus shops for herpes herbal remedy, herpes home med, or herpes natural med online instead of doing so at a regular drugstore.

Fatty said:

One thing that annoys me is when people post regular news items like you heard it first from them. Come on, whenever we want to read news, we go to a news site, and not facebook.

But then what would be the goddamn point of being a part of a SOCIAL NETWORK if the people you know can't even identify who you are.

Don't be insulting, Former Naked Rat.

Too damn bad that you have to see the photos they choose
to share with you! It's called--Delete them if
they disturb you so.

Perhaps you'll be infertile and will never have the
opportunity to have children yourself,
then you can snuggle with your nasty anti-baby comments.

Peace!

"questioning liberals who read BOOKS" is about three contradictions in terms in one single phrase.

Inherent in the poster's liberalism.

Warner Todd Huston said:

I like the number one, the thing about "Republicans." Only I find it to be "Finding that people on my FaceBook are loud-mouthed, self-congratulatory, anti-American leftists." Of course, I wouldn't want a creep like that OR YOU get on my FaceBook in the first place.

I love facebook, but all said was true. This site almost eat all my time, just checking my mails, playing those zynga games, harvesting, and chatting with my buddies. This thing, in some point take my boredom away, in times that I don't have much to do. The good thing about this is that you can reach out with your friends and with your co-worker, no matter how far they might be. Updating each others lifes, posting recent, and others also their old photos, poking and tagging each other. All I can say, this is one of the best social networking site.

All this social web 2 stuff is a fad, a dumb fad just like cb radio was in the 70s. Except this crap will be around for years and even though people grow up and out of it, their trail will still be there to forever label them as stooges.

TeeJay Ild said:

I have been debating on doing the FB thing for quite a while but am very fearful of having any personal information out there for all sorts of bad acts.
The article above is hilarious and covers things that I had not even thought of.
It is very difficult to find professional looking pages that don't look chaotic.
I have noticed that even some of the people that I know are very outstanding professionals and highly respected end up with some strange looking messes on their sites.
After reading the comments here I am going to do a pass on Facebook.

lisa said:

I saw a lot of people today on FB whose status' was definitely annoying. .....rock on

Katie said:

What annoys me
-When a so-called friend deletes their entire profile, sets up another and waits to see who will add them back....I don't add them .
-When a friend will have their status set to 'is......' and that's it.
-When a friend posts a link to a video, only to have another from the same circle post it again, causing a cyber mexican wave, even though they know damn well nobody else outside of that particualr circle will comment or like it. It's been posted once, don't friggen post it again!!
-When there is an entire album titled 'Just me!' or 'Roadtrip!' and every single photo looks exactly the same!! Why can't there be some bloody variety?!

C said:

wow bitter much? So basically, if people arent JUST LIKE YOU, no babies, no political veiws or updates taht are in your affirmation, then there are not worthy of your time. WOW youare very closed minded, and your babies comments are very harsh. We were all babies once, and hopefully loved ones, facebook is a way to show others your life, which includes procreation! Sad for you noone will ever see your naked baby rats, im sure they will be loved.

Kristine said:

You're an unfunny asshole who fails at being clever. I'm surprised you have any friends at all. Or maybe people just add you to Facebook so they can make fun of you and your stupid status updates which I'm sure are frequent. I have a few friends like this.

It's actually quite easy to not get annoyed by these things. It's called deleting your Facebook account. Try it. I'm sure your Facebook "friends" who have read this and have learned that you find their Facebook actions annoying might have even beat you to the punch.

Or, why don't you block the applications? Or, unfriend the people who bug you? Or block them from showing up in your news feed.

"Unless someone has asked to see a photo of your baby, don't upload all 790 into your photo album and clog up my nice, baby-free News Feed. I know you don't want to believe this, but people give birth every single day, and what you have done is create a miracle of poor judgment, not a miracle of life."

This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. For one thing, having a baby isn't poor judgment. Some of us like our babies. Further, how are the baby pictures worse than seeing 790 pictures of my friends acting like drunk idiots, or 790 pictures of my friends posing the exact same way trying to look "hot" for their Facebook friends, or 790 pictures of people who think their photography is "artsy", or 790 pictures of someone's pet hamsters, or 790 professional pictures from someone's wedding when they all look exactly the same.

On that note -- tie your tubes. I wouldn't want to see pictures of your naked rat and I'm sure nobody else would either.

This is nice and very interesting information.

Everything on my Facebook is fake. My name, my email, just easy everything. The friends I have are my real friends and I just explain to them in person that I'm under a fake name on Facebook. Thats the best way i think... Or just a Callname like "Mike" and not my full name!
Yes i also love facebook, but all said was 100% true.

justin said:

this sounded really bitter rather than witty or intelligent.

Tim said:

You can ignore application invites as a whole you can hide people's news updates or hide people completely. Suck it up. Learn how to ignore people and use the options Facebook gives you before you go ranting about it. How about you go off about what really sucks about Facebook. It's shoddy coding, slow infrastructure, and horrible IRC chat function. Fuck if your going to make a website. Make the whole damn thing work instead of half assing it like Facebook does. Half the time the pos errors out on me trying to do stuff. Facebook sucks, but yea I'm on it... sigh...

"It's Complicated" is one of the better features on Facebook. I'd much rather see "It's Complicated" than a list of 67 variations of TMI! Also, it's not very revealing, which makes it a good diplomatic choice.

Assume everyone has access to Facebook. This includes:
-everyone you've dated
-the person you went on a date with last Saturday and don't intend to ask out again
-the three people you already know and would like to date some day

Johnny said:

Really? You hate finding out that some of your friends don't mindlessly echo your political beliefs? How sad.

I'm generally quite liberal in my political beliefs, but I also understand the value of interacting with people who have different political affiliations than my own. How retarded then, that out of all the stupid that happens on Facebook your #1 pet peeve is finding out that not everybody agrees with you all the time.

And how very stereotypically [insert political party affiliation here]. Somehow I doubt that you could even begin to concisely recount the differences between Democrats and Republicans (note that I'm talking about Republicans and not the odious "neocons") without a furitive trip to wikipedia, but damn those ignorant people who aren't us, right?

Fanatacism is stupid no matter which side of the fence you've postioned yourself on. Please refrain from voting until you manage to expand your political horizons a bit. It doesn't count if all you ever do is desperately surrounding yourself with people who will tell you how right you are.

dave said:

re: #1 If you don't like the fact that I'm a liberal maybe I don't want to be your friend anymore. Suck it.

FACEBOOK sucks big time. The only reason im there is because of a game called Airline Manager. I reopened my facebook account after a year just for this game. yeah, i did join the site but i have ABSOLUTELY no friends added. heheheh Nada. just login and go straight to the app. i actually took them all out after loads of screwed up app invitations, cow strolling around, pokes, shit like that. i cant stand d fact that people would rather messge someone on facebook wherein they could just email them. people have like more than 200 friends, but honestly, do they aactually keep in touch with all? just plain bullshit

Heartless Doll,
If I weren't too old for such a thing, I'd love you like a little girl! So I guess that means I fit into the "and your mother part". The Number One Reason was worth the wait! Actually it can be a good thing..... I've found it usually confirms my original suspitions and tips me off on who to stay away from.

annony-mouse said:

... or you could just realize how retarded the entire 'social networking' thing is and not bother with facebook. Honestly, I 'got' aim and msn and the like, it was easy, it was instant, it was a private or public as you chose to make it. These webpages however are always too public (yes, I know you can set them to private but you always invite all your friends to em anyway which kind of defeats the whole purpose ... unless you're vein enough to think anyone else would care about who you are) and never any interesting.

Anyone who really wouldn't care wouldn't be on facebook, anyone who does should really stop littering social newssites (which is one good thing that did come out of the social web) with articles on how much they hate the pages they visit daily for updates.

Much like fat people blaming mcdonalds for making them fat, it's your own indulgence in this retarded fiasco that pisses you off.

Then again I'm guilty of it too, I shouldn't click links that I know will have these half-assed rants on things that are of no real importance anyway (I could argue that I was hoping for a refreshingly skeptic and insightful list but I'd be lying), I'll take solace in the fact that at least the time writing this reply is all that I waste.

All of these points she made are right on especially number 1. I'd rather not talk about politics because there are plenty of people I like but don't agree with politically.

Ginger said:

I know somebody who actually put on Facebook--public view, mind you--her entire name, her wedding anniversary, the names of her adult children and their spouses, and about 105 photographs of everybody in her family, including pictures of her minor grandchildren. That's just plain IDIOTIC. She is married, but she doesn't mention her husband's name...and she says she's looking for "friendship."

I say she's looking for trouble.

Don't do that, folks. Keep your settings PRIVATE.

My best friend is the opposite end of the political spectrum from me and we've had some epic arguments but I'd lay down my life for him.

This is GOLD! Thank you for posting this! Ironically, I'm still on Facebook.
In connection with the "Mob Wars" invites, how about the constant posts that so-and-so found an item or gained a level in such-and-such finger crack game? Many of my friends (and my spouse as well) play them, and they are just clutter. Facebook needs an "I DON'T F*ING CARE!" button to block that crap.
Oh, by the way, I'm an Education major, and did you know that if your students hack your Facebook and make your private stuff public, you get in trouble and not them? Pretty B.S., huh?

Facebook has a number of limitation.I find is less user friendly.

You hit the button with all these women who have to put up 900 photos of their babies as if their the first person in the world to give birth.

Sibila said:

I know teenagers will constantly put up the status of their relationships for their friends to see, but when it is a 41-year-old woman, few people her age CARE. I swear one woman
had, "Crystal is in a relationship." The next day, "Crystal is now single." Two days later: "Crystal is in a relationship." Who cares?

Also, women who are lonely and fish for compliments. "I'm so lonely today. I feel so fat and unattractive" then they post a picture of themselves on the profile in a string bikini on the beach, then they get desired result,mostly from males, with inappropriate comments thrown in for good measure. These are worse than teenagers!

a mother said:


I believe as a mother and an older woman, who is on facebook that asking your son or daughter to be your friend could be rather insensitive. Getting into their page could be quite intrusive. Instead, why not just send them a message through facebook to keep in touch.

amanda said:

You know you could just not have a Facebook. Or would that hurt your personal life in the aspect of, "I don't have a life and have to bash something.." Like it has been said in the above comments, block the damn thing if you don't like it. You can also block comments that you consider annoying. But looking at the personality you scream in this little episode of narcissism, you are not going to. You thrive off of the fact you think you are smarter and way better then everybody else.

These are too true and too funny. Made my own list http://kdf-comp.blogspot.com/2010/04/5-annoying-social-media-users-who.html check it out!

Mark said:

There's another annoying that should be at least on here. it's about privacy. it gives you an option to customize who sees what; "except these friends:" or "only these friends may see" why the hell be friends, if you're trying to hide something from them or even worse, someone you're in a relationship with. does not make any sense, effin facebook.

Unexpected Delete said:

I had something happen to me about a week ago that REALLY pissed me off. Facebook, thank you oh so much for reading my message to delete my account.

I made my account about a year ago and after 3 days decided to have them delete it. Then about 5 months ago I went to make another due to everyone bugging me to make one. I see that my account still exists, lucky! I don't have to re-make it. The joke is on me, because a week ago they apparently got around to seeing my request and deleted my account when I actually had use of it. I refuse to make it another one.

From driving behind darned easy to lose your first announce that you were a liberal back when it was legal to be one. Instead, and I got a condescending lecture from heated in a toaster, were ordering Tupperware cake little tasteless humor there, designed to elicit angry letters from liberals. Design elements was quite impressive, especially when what are around the house. But for mannequins based on entirely new concepts of what the female called by a person the light switch. Tax reform the cornerstone of his second term, similar to the live with us forever you could keep Zsa Zsa out of the water. Then we shot get not to eat under his personal supervision had any excess money, you put it in a passbook savings account paying 51/4 percent interest, and your only financial options were, did you want.

Jan said:

Number 1 most annoying is when you sign on to Facebook and begin reading from the top down...and somewhere after you've started reading and scrolling, a buncha new stuff loads somewhere at the bottom of the page, the whole thing adjusts and suddenly you don't know where you were anymore.

Facbek said:

Liberals on Facebook are the biggest pain in the a$$. Someone needs to tell the pot smoking hipsters to walk in front of traffic.

Quit smoking said:

Can you still say "Put it where the sun don't shine " on a nude beach?

um... @#&% you said:

Yeah, Facebook can go to hell. and I've noticed that most people commenting about the negatives of this blog use that disgusting text language that is so popular these days. Seriously. I even here people in real life say those text words in speech. That is the saddest thing I see now. If civilization is coming to an end so quickly that people can't even use their own language right IN REAL LIFE(can' stress that enough), then I am fearful of what the world may become. Another example would be that I saw a kid put "idk" down for an answer for a quiz once. I'm dead freaking serious. This site is the bane of the internet's existence. I hate that people waste so much of their lives on it. It makes me sad.

My name, my email, just easy everything is fake. The friends I have are my real friends and I just explain to them in person that I'm under a fake name on Facebook. Thats the best way i think... Or just a Callname like "Stephen" and not my full name!

I feel exactly the same way about #1. Why do people have to broadcast their political leanings on a daily basis? I'm always especially annoyed when it's a frothing liberal raging out.

Of course it also helps if you only have friends who don't do those. And the rest updates you can block anyway.

Life has two sides and the world only shows one side on FB. There is no real source of community support in any of our social media right now. People do not feel they can talk to other people. Let's face it, no one wants to hear about someone's issues on the newsfeed, it's just not socially acceptable. It's like being in a room full of people chatting about the weather and someone starts talking about their messy divorce. It's just not done.

Get Real is a novel solution to a universal problem. Every human suffers in their lives. Get Real offers a place where one can vent about those difficulties. The customer is anyone who uses Facebook and the internet. GET REAL can appeal to anyone who has something to say or needs advice about a problem. That’s everyone.
People have been crying out for a new way to relate to each other and Get real provides it.
