I’m not sure if it’s because I’m getting older or what, but lately I’ve had absolutely NO patience for people who post stupid crap on Facebook.  Luckily for people like me, who don’t have the tolerance for stupid status updates, Facebook lets us hide said stupid people’s garbage.  Right now, I think I have about a dozen people whose statuses I still see in my feed because of all the nonsense.  Ok, fine, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but I’ve been on a major hiding spree lately and I’ve cleaned up my feed quite a bit.

If you post things like this, you’re going to get hidden:

1.  You constantly post pictures of your meals.  I get that once in a while you eat something that’s awesome enough that it’s worthy of a photo, but if there is more than one picture of something you’re about to put into your tummy per day – it’s too much.

2.  You take pictures of yourself in the bathroom mirror.  Doing it once is bad enough, but if you’ve done it more than one time in your life, it makes you a complete douche and I know for a fact that I’m not the only person who could care less about seeing them.

3.   You “pin” too much.  I don’t mind seeing what people pin, but if you post more than 10 to 12 things per day, don’t post them to Facebook when you do – it just clutters up other people’s feed.   Unless it’s funny stuff, and in that case, pin away.

4.  If you post anything relating to your political views, your religious views or gun control, I’m hiding you.  Of course you are free to believe whatever you want and that is why we live in the greatest country in the world, but I generally don’t care what other people think in regards to those things, so if you post status updates or share photos pertaining to any of those things….bye bye!

5.  If you feel the need to tell all your Facebook friends that you’re doing laundry, baking cookies, walking the dog, mowing the lawn or any other form of cleaning/housework – you need to get a life.  If you honestly think anyone gives a shit that you’re “going for a swim later”, you are seriously mistaken.

6.  If you post more than five status updates – you’re posting too much.  Unless you’re on a vacation or doing something so awesome that multiple status updates are required, stop posting so much.

7.  If you vaguebook all the time, consider yourself hidden.  I don’t have the time or the desire to play your games, so if you have something to say – just spit it out already.

So if you are friends with me on Facebook and don’t get a like or comment from me in a while, you’re probably one of the people I’ve hidden.

  1. I hide the people who do the inspiration quote thing

  2. Lmfao!!!! After being tired as ass from staying up for the Bruins, that just totally cracked me up and woke me up a lil!!!! Omg too funny!

  3. This is hysterical!!

  4. Feet. I HATE when people take pics of their feet and post it on FB. I don’t care if you have a new pedicure, or what you think are great shoes, spare me from your hammertoed, corn chip smelling feet.

  5. I think I just follow so many people and companies now that I miss way to much to even begin to hide anything, lol!! But seriously, I do know what you mean about some of the more random and ridiculous things posted on Facebook. And can understand your rational for hiding those people!!

  6. I have a bit of a love-hate thing going with the people who are constantly posting song lyrics. I want to hide them, but it’s like I can’t look away.

  7. LMFAO. I am one of those. In a lot of categories> lol. I am hiding from you. 🙂

  8. I think I just hate facebook in general 🙂 I stay off of facebook for everything except my blog. It seriously seems to be full of idiots, some of which I’m related to and moved away from for a reason. Sounds mean, but true 🙂

  9. Gave me a chuckle as the whole self indulgent Facebook thing is a pet hate of mine

  10. My husband always looks at his iPad in the morning. He recently liked my blog on Facebook, and the first thing he said today (even before ‘good morning’) was, “I think I’m going to unlike you, you’re cluttering up my FB page with your giveaway crap.” 😉

  11. Whew I am soooo safe roflmbo.. I do none of the above unless it is posting what is for dinner and that is usually for Gene who is still at work lol.. But I don’t do that real often anyway sooo again I am in the clear..

  12. I dislike it when people post, “I am going to bed now. Had a great day.” Lame. I don’t post on my facebook wall unless I have something important to share li ke a new blog post is ready for you to read or I am about to take a trip somewhere. When I’m on vacation, I post more and sometimes may post nonsense posts. I will try to monitor in the fu.ture.

  13. Ok I’m so hidden right? LOL

    yes I do the bathroom picture seems to be the only place in the house where I have a mirror and good lighting. Since being over weight mirrors haven’t been allowed in my house … lol. I’ll have to work on that.

  14. Awesome- I’ve been on a hiding spree too. There was an upsurge of people posting pictures of their meals- I mean, meals that looked like dog food. Meals that consisted of 1 protein, 3 fkn carbs and no veggies! I do not need that kind of temptation in my life nor do I need to see pictures of Salisbury Steak in my news feed. You got me on #5 though- I most definitely have no life, lol.

  15. Gah— my first comment went poof?

    Now I am trying to remember if you have commented on any of my status lately 😐

    Most of those things drive me bonkers too and have been hiding, deleting and unfriending a bunch lately.

    Another #peeve is #people who #hashtag the #snot out of every #status. UGH

  16. I agree with all!!! SO many of my friends got either blocked or hidden during this last election. I couldn’t take it anymore. And “vaguebook”– love it. There’s always a few in the bunch!

  17. I think I am safe 🙂

    Now I know what to do to annoy you 😉

  18. I only use facebook for my blog, even my personal page. I never see much of what anyone else posts. http://www.myjourneywithcandida.com/

  19. I hate the vague statuses – you’re not the first person to get pregnant, get a divorce, buy a new house/car/whatever, just say it!!!!

  20. LMFAO … I feel the same way about ALL of these! And I have been doing it a lot lately too. I had my sister as a favorite, well, she’s my sister. Ask me if she’s a favorite anymore. Too much posting = annoys the shit out of me and I will HIDE YOU!

  21. Now I’m all self conscience.

  22. What about the couples who actually fight with each other on Facebook, when it would be a lot less time consuming and embarrassing to turn to your partner who is sitting three feet away from you on the couch and hashing it out in private?

    The constant relationship status changes.

    The women over 30 who still want to party like they are in college and post pics of themselves up wasted and partying with kids 1/2 their age.

    Those are mine.

  23. Not gonna lie, kinda glad I’m not the only one 🙂

  24. I’m lame when it comes to settings and options for Facebook but I only scroll through Facebook once a day. Some people loooove to post their drama then get mad when others comment on it. Don’t blast your “dirty laundry” if you don’t want people giving their two cents.

  25. I hide people that are just so negative all the time personally. But yeah I don’t get how people make a status update so much every day. I have my days where I won’t post anything.. but than other days I go on a posting spree so maybe it balances out? LOL

  26. I actually posted about the weather yesterday, then today, but made a comment about “who the f cares” because really, no one gives a crap, right? It was just to poke fun at FB status’. But I agree with all the above!

  27. Eek I’m scared I’m hidden now from all my yummy healthy food pictures. I get it though. I have people hidden who air their dirty laundry to all of us and politics. Hate politics!

  28. Personally, I find Facebook quite annoying! ~lol~ 🙂

  29. That was funny – and I tots agree with theses. Well, I guess I’m ok. I didn’t see anything about “shameless self blog promotion” so I guess I’m cool! lol Have a great weekend! 🙂

  30. I’m pretty accepting on there but I don’t like mean-spirited people or those who whine all the time, but I don’t think I’ve ever hidden anyone.

  31. I hate #7 and people that complain all the time.

  32. Haha too funny! I have to agree with you though. I have hidden lots of people lately because I just can’t stand all their updates. And the bathroom mirror “selfies”….ugh!

  33. Yes, yes, yes! #4 and #7 are my biggest pet peeves!

  34. #2 and #4 are my pet peeves! Ugh!

  35. I barely posts on there so I guess I’m safe… or maybe not….

  36. Number 7 really bugs me. And it is made worse
    when you ask what the problem is and are
    told it is personal! Really??? Then don’t post

  37. I had vaguebooking! So annoying!
