    GUYS:
    - Showing off laddish bullsh*t: throwing up in the street, sporting their new awesome wheels, generally ladding it up, you name it. Taking photos of themselves whilst they drive despite the danger it poses to other road users and pedestrians
    - Taking pictures of themselves in clubs striking some powerful pose with their mouths wide open as if they were belowing out their lungs CUZ I AM SO MAD OMG THIS NIGHT OUT IS SO CRAZY MAN!
    - Taking pictures of one guy in the centre of a giant group of girls CUZ I AM THE GR8EST STUD OF THIS AWESOME NIGHT OUT BRO.
    - Quoting that f*cking godawful gap yah video. Yes girls do it but guys are way more guility. OMG CHUNDERED EVERYWAH. IM SO FUNNY XD

    GIRLS:
    - A million photos taken on the same night at the same club all in similar positions, with at least 99% of the photos containing pouting (even though it looks so ****ing stupid).
    - Female groups going into horrible, dirty club toilets and feeling the need to take a hard drive's worth of photos of them posing in the mirror.
    - They will bake a cake or something stupid, then feel the need to take another bazillion photos of it to show the eager world.
    - Posting vague status updates that say something terrible has happened, and refusing to say what happened at all.
    - Taking pictures of themselves in awkward positions designed to hide any imperfections of their bodies: heavily caked in make-up, showing mostly the face with a bit of the shoulders to hide the body (usually to mask obesity), with the contrast stupidly high in order to hide any blemishes on their already makeup-caked faces.

    Yes, I hate Facebook. Yes, I'm mad. Rant over.

    To contribute, more recent statuses ...

    'hahahha. oh god. you make me cringe you horrible creature. get a bath.'

    'In the bath chillin out, this is the life xxxxx' <-- this was followed by a picture of her and a mate in the bath ... :rolleyes:

    'Like this and il inbox yeh!'

    'There's usually a little truth behind "just kidding ",some knowledge behind "idk", an emotion behind "idc" & pain behind "its ok"' <--- 6 different friends have had this status over 8 hours

    Facebook itself can be easily avoided, but in its own way it does intrude into real life...

    I hate how people have to take pictures of EVERYTHING because they "have put it on Facebook"... there have even been times when people have said something funny and immediately somebody has said "OMG I have to post that on Facebook!" :lolwut:
    No. No you don't. Why can't you just enjoy your life without thinking about how you're going to present it when you publish it to all the other morons you know? FFS. :facepalm:

    Un-friend people who have nothing worth saying... It's not hard.
    A little awkward when they re-add you a few months later though.

    if there's something about my friends I legitimately hate it's probably the constant fraping. It was funny the first couple of times but now it's just retarded.

    I believe people do this because showing they have a bf/gf gives them status (excuse the pun) in their group. It works to potentially make others in the group jealous (more common amongst girls) or so everyone knows they are in a relationship so when they break up everyone will know they are sexually experienced and thus have increased desirability.

    It's just monkey troop psychology gone digital, i.g. gone mad.

    Why are you all moaning?! It's fekkin' hillarious!
    I have a girl on facebook who has an album named 'M33333 XXX' or something equally as funny and there are about 150 photos on it of her just sat infront of her webcam pouting. Oh, and on most of them she's pointed out all the bad points in the photo. I take a look every time I'm down; it makes me feel better about myself

    Just a place to reassure everyone that you have a life.
    I mean, people are now taking digital cameras clubbing or doing anything like going shopping, then uploading them to facebook and publishing them. It just seems like they do it to force their day upon everyone to make sure everyone can see that they are doing something.
    I just read this status and it made me lol:

    'Mmmmm...Roast Chicken! Photos to follow'

    Can't wait to see the roast chicken someone else has had for lunch :rolleyes:

    I only use FB as a means of communication with friends/gf, and i upload photos but most the time dont even publish them. Anyone else find it irritating? Especially the photo whores who make an album for every month of the year with about 100 photos of themselves doing various poses, but 99% of which are just the duck pout to make their cheeks look thinner...

    Couldn't agree more. People are dumbasses.

    Facebook went downhill the day all the plebs were allowed to join. When it was just university students it was so much better and intelligent.

    Facebook went downhill the moment they started allowing students from crap unis in. It should have just been Ivy League and Oxbridge.

    The people I have on Facebook are mainly people I knew in highschool, but there's only a handful I'll actually communicate with online. For some people I think Facebook has become err..how shall I say it...ermm much more vital to them than the average person but oh well!
