A lot of the people I have in my Facebook circle are from my previous high school. I have some annoying people on my Facebook, granted it wasn't a great high school but hey, no schools perfect right so you will meet weird people along the way. The reason why the people I have on Facebook link with my dislike for it is due to peoples pathetic 'schizophrenia'. That word might make you think 'what?' and well let me explain. Many people I have on Facebook are almost Schizophrenic in terms of their facebook statuses, the statuses being more frequent than the average human heart beats per minute get quite annoying. The statuses range from delusional 'love' (which is the most overused word of this generation) to the many random spurts of nothingness. The term nothingness covers just what it explains, many people post statuses about things you would never ever want to read. When I read a Facebook status, most of the times I end up regretting the 5 seconds of my life reading and 25 seconds of my life shouting in anger over it. Statuses like "I want to watch TV but cant be bothered to pick up the tv remote, its over there" make me want to punch myself repeatedly with bost fists. But hey, don't worry, we are getting to the good stuff.
The worst statuses by far, absolute worst which make me want to end many acquaintances with people are the Facebook statuses about people moaning. People in this day and age like sympathy, they are what my good friend calls "attention hookers". They have no absolute shame and will not think twice on posting a status about them being 'depressed' all the time. Now you may say "hey what if they are really sad, leave them alone", well I would agree with you however, here is where the schizophrenia kicks in. These people gather the attention from people by posting depressive statuses while simultaneously posting other Facebook statuses or comments about doing something fun. These people will be talking to you on msn about how much fun watching the x factor is whilst posting a status about depression. Gathering pathetic and undeserved empathy whilst multitasking. Oh how my blood boils at the sight of this, I feel used, abused and slapped in the face when I read something on Facebook which is trying to extract undeserved empathy/sympathy from me.
The "attention hookers" a term which does not only cover females, do not make that misconception please. Is a term I am using right now for all those people who take pictures of themselves inappropriately to get attention. May it be to feed their insecurity that they need to see a picture of theirs get "100 likes" because they are showing cleavage to the maximum degree or may it be to make their useless day produce something. Whether its guys in a toilet without a shirt on or women holding the camera above their head to capture their external organs, people's pictures on Facebook can get very annoying.
Moving a bit away from people and more into people with applications on Facebook, I must mention all the invitations to the stupid video games I keep receiving. Sometimes I am in a train and my phone rings to alert me, now I do not know what it is alerting me for so I will take it out of my pocket to check if its something important and what I will see is a stupid invitation to Farmville. These invitations would have been excused if they were temporary but no, they are so frequent that I had to ban all of them. But to my surprise, new games always keep popping up and always annoy me because its a new beast which I now need to ban before it drives me insane.
Other than people annoying me, its also the different 'social pages' which never fail to make my face go red. These pages are pages with entertaining names which I ended up liking when I was an idiotic 13 year old and now they are back to haunt me. Just as Scrooge was haunted by the ghosts of his past, these pages haunt me as they post new statuses themselves every minute which I have to plummet through to find my friends (yes I do have some friends which don't annoy me). These social pages post the most out of context and stupid statuses I have ever seen, some statuses I liked about the ninja turtles manage to post a status about 'love' coming a full circle to burden me with hate. Also, it is the fact that these pages are funny little groups which people like and groups which should not be posting something to do with relationships every minute makes me mad. These statuses purpose should not be to hammer you with love stories, asking you for hearts in a 'whorified' way, no ones intention is to receive their constant statuses when they like the page and the page should stop bothering us. No matter where I go these statuses will be present to disappoint, I wish these social pages were not in the thousands so I could have easily deleted them all by now.
Hey you, your the person who actually read all of the article, its an article I had fun writing and do not think that I am a 'Scrooge' like character who is just bitter. I just had fun pointing out some things that I genuinely dislike, I hope you found this entertaining to read and I hope you can empathise with some of this.
