Facebook etiquette question. Wife very angry.
I recently signed up to Facebook and generally just look at it occassionally to see what old mates are doing, don’t comment too much.
However, someone who I don’t know posted the eulogy below on my page;
‘Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who never take advantage of you. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.’
All it was missing was, ‘Pass this on or you’ll die’ underneath and I commentated stating that the idea that I shouldn’t surround myself with enemies and reprobates never occoured to me.
Wife is now going mental as her friend, who lost her Dad a while back, was reaching out to her friends whilst I think if she doesn’t want people doesn’t know commenting, she should sort out her privacy settings.
Now that I feel like a 15 yo having a txt war, is the Wife right or should people expect comments on their unsolicited, Martha Stewart homilies?Posted 5 years agopolyMember

Suggest you consider who you ‘friend’ allow to post on your page if you are going to get all worried about it.
Personally I’d say anyone who opens their heart of facebook is a bit odd… …but I do seem to know a few odd people.Posted 5 years agoigrfMember
Post a link to some mental health charity or anger management clinic, I find Facebook needs extreme irony at all times, then everyone unfriends you, other than those who ‘get it’ and peace returns to your world, oh and post a link to the death clock every now and then, that’ll keep them happy..Posted 5 years agoBoba FattMember
When it comes to Facebook, it turns people into complete morons.
I noticed the other day that people have gone from generally moaning to their mates about their significant other to overly sweet displays of affection for their Facebook audience. It’s gone from “my husband dies nothing” and “the kids are driving me mental” to “my darling husband and my gorgeous little boys/girls and their amazing amazingness”
I’m going old-school, quills and parchment from now onPosted 5 years agonealgloverMember
By the sound of it, she didn’t post anything on “your page”
She posted it on Hers, and it appeared on yours because she is in your friends list.
You then posted a comment about it “on her page”
I couldn’t really care less, but if I’ve got it right, I can see why your wife is pissed off with you.
I only really use Facebook for business, so don’t really have the same problem.Posted 5 years agospooky_b329Member
I didn’t ‘get’ this yesterday, but having just skim read it again, I understand that the friend posted a message on her ‘wall’ for friends to see, which included the OPs Wife. The friends privacy settings are either non-existent, or her posts are viewable to friends of friends. The OP/husband is a friend of a friend though his wife, so can see the post.
Wife should be going mental at the friend to change her privacy settings.
If you have the timeline look with the big picture across the top, you can type in the name of a friend (or a none friend, such as your wife’s friend) at the top and you can then view your profile from their perspective, so you can see exactly what is visible and what isn’t.Posted 5 years agoyunkiMember
Facebook is not STW. You can’t be inexplicably rude to everyone and get away with it.
Grow up, be nice.
By and large, those people on Facebook are your social network (if you’re using the site for it’s intended purpose) friends, family, friends of friends..
People you will see at parties, funerals, weddings, christmas time.. Don’t take the piss out of them when they are mourning the loss of a loved one..
What they are definitely not is a bunch of socially mal-adjusted cyclists who spend half their lives looking for little chinks in your armour so that they can draw attention to it in a vain attempt to feel superior for a few minutes each day.. play nice.. that woman might be helping you clear up flood water next month.. or be babysitting your kids or be offering you a vol au vent at a wake..Posted 5 years ago
