- Facebook etiquette question. Wife very angry.
I seem to be getting a lot of ‘click like in 3 seconds if you don’t want this baby to die’. Given it takes me on average at least 5 seconds to read what’s written above a picture because I tend to look at pictures first (yes I know, no I’m not five) does this mean I’m a baby murderer? These are actually great for knowing who to hide/block.Posted 5 years agoTrimixMember
If you cant be ‘yourself’ to those you call freinds, then they are not real freinds. Sod ’em.
Just carry on as you are, eventually those that dont like/agree with you will bugger off leaving you with mates who see it as you do.
Or just have real mates you only meet in person.Posted 5 years agoOrmanCheepMember
A friend of the wife’s posted a photograph of her still born child on facebook. It was a photo that just appeared in the news stream, without warning or without any choice as to whether or not to view it.
My wife was in floods of tears when she showed me, and I can say that it is one of the most upsetting things I have ever seen.
For my money, this is NOT what facebook is for, especially given that there were pregnant mothers on her friends list.
Anyway, grief makes us do things we wouldn’t normally consider. She went on the have a “cull” of all her “so called facebook friends”, or “****” that didn’t facebook message her their condolences.
Feel so sorry for her, because she is normally quite rational.Posted 5 years ago
I do find it strange that some people see facebook as anything more than a place to communicate the funny little things that happen in your life.spacemonkeyMember
FB is getting on my t1ts these days. I see far fewer mates using it than in years gone by. There’s now only a hardcore bunch that are on there all the time; some post really interesting/engaging stuff while the others witter on with constant “check in” updates (e.g. London Bridge, Starbucks, Yoga Class etc) and all the other mindlessly dull BS.
I reckon the constant barrage of sleep-inducing updates is putting more and more people off using it.Posted 5 years agospacemonkeyMember

That’s just plain wrong (IMHOOC) on all levels. But that’s exactly what FB ‘encourages’ people to do. I’d go f^&*ing spare if I was the father of that child and my wife did that – you simply don’t broadcast that kind of stuff.Posted 5 years agojoao3v16Member
The problem with FaceAche is that there are too many odd people who take it all really really seriously, and too many people who seem to spend their time putting stuff up just to get a nice warm feeling when all their ‘friends’ ‘like’ their posts (and get massively offended if they don’t get enough ‘likes’, or certain people don’t comment).
My wife and I have a shared Facebook account. Well, I say ‘shared’. I never use it, and have no interest in it whatsoever. I just talk to my actual real friends by phone and even (unbelievably) face-to-face.
However, looking at what HRHs ‘friends’ put on Facebook, most of it seems to be links to “things I found in the internet that I think are funny/thought-provoking/interesting” (YouTube, pictures with superimposed soundbites etc) that they then expect everyone to ‘like’, thus justifying their humour/music preference/etc … there are very rarely any original thoughts from their own brains, just an endless copy-&-paste exercise.
Oh, and pictures people holding drinks at parties.
No facebook page is complete without many many pictures of people holding drinks at parties.
I suspect Facebook would be ideal viewing for people who suffer from insomnia.Posted 5 years agoscu98rkrMember
Did she actually post it to “YOUR” wall.
Or did she give it as an update therefore appearing on your feed.
If she posted it to your wall then fair enough, your a fairly harsh bloke who likes to take the p**s she should know that and expect an ironic response.
If she gave it as an update it probably wasnt aimed at you. yes annoying but you just need to block her from your message feed.
In real life if you over heard her talking to your wife/friends you wont immediately take the p**s you’d stay out of the conversion. This is similar.Posted 5 years agophilconsequenceMember
facebook is only rubbish if you have rubbish friends.
if everyone else seems to be enjoying their interractions with each other and you’re sitting there thinking, what a load of old rubbish… feeling like the odd one out, then chances are you’re the boring friend 😉
anyway, i best go ‘like’ some of deadlydarcy’s dog photosPosted 5 years agofootflapsSubscriber
Someone I know constantly posts pictures of butterflys with some text along the lines of “we are free to fly at birth, remember who you are and blah blah blah”, which translates as “I am…”
Also, utter bollocks as we’re incontinent, next to useless and can’t even hold our own necks up at birth, so don’t see many babies flying anywhere soon….Posted 5 years agoMrs ToastMember

Butterflies can’t fly at birth either, they just wiggle along eating plants and avoiding grub-eating birds. They can’t even fly when they emerge from the chrysalis as their wings have to unfold and get their circulation going.Posted 5 years agorichmtbSubscriber
No one should take FB too seriously
For me its a good way for sharing holiday pics and the occasional witticism about current affairs.
In the west of scotland its also the ideal portal for people to spout thin veiled bigotry in the guise of football banter.
Personally just ignore the bits i don’t likePosted 5 years ago
