Facebook has become America's favorite "disaster" show


Sad tag? I can only assume the Obvious tag simply exploded into many small pieces from the sheer obvious obviousity and obviousness.

It helps to have lots of rednecks, baby mama drama, and generally people with lack of self-control on your friend list too.

I love to watch someone lose it on Facebook as their life goes down the tubes.
For some reason, these idiots always end up becoming God freaks when it's all over...until they melt down again.

A friend from college has been slowly melting down in Facebook over the last year or so. We've all attempted to get him the help he needs. Seems he has been diagnosed with some sort of mental illness, can't be unsupervised with his kid, etc. Sadly, short of being arrested and forcibly detained, if he's not willing to admit he needs help, he ain't gonna get it.

But I'd be lying if I said it wasn't darkly fascinating to watch unfold. He's very open on Facebook about his proclivities (fat chick pr0n), paranoias (KKK burning crosses across the street) and political beliefs (fark tha police, legalize pot, Obama will help me get custody of my kid back).

It's been a guilty pleasure for me watching one of my friends simply be totally unable to figure out how she is farking over her own life, and I've known this person for more than 15 years. She is the same now as she was then, with an attraction toward bad black boys, popping out a couple of biracial kids, watching their daddies go to jail, asking the same "Why me?!" question over and over again, expecting different answers each time, answers she would like to hear but never getting those answers. I hate what's happening to her, but I just can't look away. It makes my life seem much better compared to hers, and that's just bad for me to feel that way, but I can't help it.

So yeah... Facebook is just the manifestation of everything that is wrong with our society, and maybe a few things that are right.

Another reason "basic computing/internet skills" should be taught at age 12, the year before kids are allowed to sign up for shiat online.

// why is everyone laughing like that?
// I didn't say they didn't, I just said they weren't allowed to
// while we're at it, throw in a few lies about cyber-bullying (aka War on Drugs propaganda, like "Every 12 seconds, a child JUST LIKE YOU commits suicide because of cyberbullying", "The penalties in [this state] for cyberbullying are 20 years in prison, followed by hard labor and your life will BE RUINED FOREVER")

Simple Rules for Facebook:

1) Do not post ANYTHING about your job, or what you are doing currently on it. Don't even be vague. (Ex: Hey, you guys know a good place to eat in X town? I'm headed there with a patient now.)
2) Do not post ANYTHING that could remotely be considered a HIPAA violation. That even includes liking other facebook friend's posted photos of their own family from your work.
3) Do not post ANYTHING about your personal feelings about a coworker. Actually, you know what? Some things are better kept to yourself.
4) Don't post racist, homophobic, sexist, or politically offensive material. If you have fringe or conspiracy beliefs, keep them to yourself.
5) Always remember the first amendment protects you from the Government arresting you for your beliefs. It doesn't protect your employer from firing your ass for being stupid.

My Facebook 'guilty pleasure' is watching most of the fundamentalist evangelicals I know, slowly lose their minds. One or two of them have successful marriages and go on to raise nice families and lead a normal, middle-class existence. But other than the crackheads and trailer trash, it is this singular group that has proven to be the poorest educated, most racist and the undoubtedly the most ignorant group of people that I know. A few rely partially on some government assistance, but in the majority of cases, most are solely dependent on the medical, educational and social service programs that are all 100% government sponsored. They decry the perceived abuses of the 'welfare queens' and champion the causes of the the super wealthy. It is ALWAYS the ultra-religious wingnut that white knights for anti-union, cutting pensions and worker benefits even if it is THEIR OWN benefits and retirement funds their 'conservative' representatives have targeted. I've said it before, but these people are so stupid, they would stand in line all day, for beheading, if their preacher or local official told them it was 'God's Will'.

Yeah, I hate all that reality TV/car chase crap, but I get what you're saying. That this is someone I know fairly well (but haven't had much contact with in 10+ years) makes it all the more compelling. A group of our college circle of friends (including mental health and law enforcement professionals) have genuinely tried to get him the help he needs, but he's just not in the headspace to know what's best for him. I'm 600 miles away, but those who live closer have had to deal with him randomly showing up, being weird around families and generally making everyone uncomfortable and fearful for their safety.

So we just kind of have to watch. Marriage destroyed, no job, constant facebook posts about getting high, his emails to the president re: his custody issues and eating cookie dough.

A certain healthcare system in our area fired 19 NURSES (which takes an act of god, Normally) because of facebook shenanigans. Those nurses had their careers destroyed simply because they "liked" a facebook post that was a HIPAA violation.

If you've never gone through a HIPAA accusation or investigation, it's almost as scary as the law showing up and saying you're a person of interest. Having Medicare program exclusion hung over your head is humbling.

I can understand if a nurse was a friend to a patient, and there was a pic of them in the hospital room (i.e. the nurse, in uniform, in the nurse's place of employment, in the patient's room during the patient's stay) on FB, liking that would likely be a violation. No one's that dumb, though, right? Especially not nurses?

Um, guys, unless he actually threatens to kill me I really don't want to know anything about how horribly he's farked up his life. I don't care.

Dr Dreidel: Having been through several HIPAA trainings myself (not as a nurse), WTF was that a picture of, and how stupid was it of them to 'like' a potential HIPAA violation (how obvious a violation was it)?


I can't really go into it without identifying the hosptial it happened at, but it had to do with a homeless man who was a frequent flyer at the hospital. Knowing the details, it's a google search away from knowing the whole story. It was a pretty big deal, as it met the criteria for mandatory reporting to the media because of the type of breech, and the libelous content of the facebook post.

Dr Dreidel: I can understand if a nurse was a friend to a patient, and there was a pic of them in the hospital room (i.e. the nurse, in uniform, in the nurse's place of employment, in the patient's room during the patient's stay) on FB, liking that would likely be a violation.

// was once told I'm not allowed to converse with patients in any language other than English
// they framed it as a HIPAA violation, but I think that was to keep him from getting attached


I've been through a HIPAA investigation before, and I've actually given presentations on it because while it wasn't an actual HIPAA violation, it was easily seen and construed as one. In my case, I liked a facebook picture posted publically, without any restrictions (this is important) by a friend of mine who's a firefighter of his son's arm. The picture had no identifying information on it, and was blatently stated that it was openly posted by the father. That was enough to allow someone to try to get me fired, and the whole situation actually went up to corporate legal before two things ended it. The first was the father writing a rather nasty, and amusing letter to the administrator about it and the trouble that happened, and two were people coming out to say they knew who reported it, and the entire thing was done maliciously as revenge for reporting a patient care incident in the past.

Even though it wasn't a HIPAA violation, it was still written up as a social media policy violation, and I had to make amends for it.

I get a call from my dad saying my mom is in tears because she had to remove me on Facebook. I asked why. He said it was because she was embarrassed about I said about a very nice lady (they didn't even know) and that everyone on her friends list could see it. Trust when I say my parents are idiots and don't understand the finer points of Facebook privacy settings. Then my dad proceeded to yell at me for another 30 minutes telling me that the only thing that I should be posting on Facebook are pictures of our kids so they could see them and that they were insulted by adult humor comics and other pictures I had posted. I was like, "you do know I *can* send pictures via email right?" I was informed that wasn't good enough. *sigh*

So thankful my mom isn't on my Facebook. My aunt and other family members are and they have zero problems with my posts. Half of the lewd pictures and stuff I repost from my aunt and my mom still has her friended.

Facebook is great for reconnecting with chicks from high school. What's crazy is that many of them are bored housewives who would be easy to hook up with. I'd never do that because destroying a marriage over a piece of ass is contemptible, but it's just Airtel that the opportunity is there.

If I was married and my wife was active in Facebook, I'd be a little concerned.

Why the hell do you think any human being on earth wants to look at your stupid lewd photos on facebook? It's not 1981 anymore, and you're not twelve. Lewd photos are no longer some magic, mystical thing that only exist in the attic rafters of your friend Mike's garage. Anybody who wants to see lewd photos on the internet has better places to go than your stanky facebook page.

Not lewd in a visual sexual nature. More in content and humor (e.g comics, etc). Judging by your reaction, I think you and my mom would be great friends. Unfortunately, you seem to be equating lewd to something along the lines of porn or something like I'm posting pictures of someone's snatch or something.

And for the record my Facebook friends list is small and actually contains real friends I know in person and family.... unlike some folks I know who accept every Tom Dick and Harry as a friend. Generally speaking, I tend to have friends who share the same sense of humor. Oh and my page is set to private as well. So you have no worries about seeing my "stanky facebook page."

But if you were on my Facebook page you'd also see me make geek worthy posts, discuss science, politics and other topics outside the realm of "lewd".  But you wouldn't know that would you?

I use FB but not under my real name. I friend only people I have met and interacted with and even then I'm really judicious. I don't like you, I'm not friending you--quit asking. I did make 2 exceptions for Farkers but knew they were pretty cool to begin with (one of whom, it turned out, was good friends w/one of my cousins). For the most part, my FB is drama-free and I post stories about my crazy job all the time (because I never mention the company, nobody from work knows my name on FB, and I refuse to friend any coworkers).

But there are definitely a few people that I keep around for the entertainment value, like a few Teabaggers or Jets fans. But there's one girl I see at a friend's poker tournament who's been a one-woman soap opera for the past year or so. She hasn't been to poker and her posts are maddeningly vague. I don't know her well enough to ask her what's going on and, by the morose tone of her posts, I don't think I really want to know. Here's a typical post:

"I badly need to vent and I am afraid to do so online... and no one seems to be around to talk.. I feel like running around screaming. I hate being stuck in the position where I am. I hate feeling like shiat.. I hate not being able to go anywhere or do anything.. I think I really am going to explode."

Much like Paula in TFA, none of her close friends seem to post. I look back through previous posts from her and she has some medical issues stemming from the fact that she's 350lbs, she's a Wiccan lesbian whose partner became born-again & left her, and I'm fairly certain she's got like a dozen cats. I should defriend her--haven't seen her in at least a year and barely speak to her--but the drama is too...intriguing.

Facebook rules:

Rules 1-4 How to Stay Out of Trouble:
1) No fighting with your SO online, ever. This includes passive aggressive status updates about their sexual performance, lack of diligence in doing household chores, and parental effectiveness. This goes double if you're going through a divorce, in which case, disable your Facebook account until it's final, everything you post can and will be held against you.

2) No talking about work, coworkers, or anything that could even remotely offend your boss should someone show it to her/him.No posting pictures of yourself somewhere other than work when you should be at work. Also, don't friend your boss or coworkers. Ever.

3) Nurses, teachers, and childcare providers: Don't post anything, like anything, or comment on anything other than pictures of Jesus.

4) Teenagers and young adults: Stop posting any pictures of yourself that don't include books, preferably the bible. Or an encyclopedia, yes, they still make them. Spell out all of your words and don't let anyone tag you in anything.

Rules 5 - 10 How To Not Look Stupid

5) If you have drama, contain it within private messages. As entertaining as it is to read, you look stupid even if you're right.

6) Don't post politically offensive material. If you have 1000 "friends," chances are someone disagrees with you enough to call you out, then you have an internet flame war on your FB page. And you look stupid even if you're right.

7) Don't post prayers or constant religious messages. Matthew 6:5 You're trying too hard and I don't believe you.

8) Don't post photos of yourself while A) making duck face B) throwing gang signs and/or flipping the bird and holding 10 one dollar bills C) looking in your bathroom mirror D) holding your camera at an impossible angle so that your double chin disappears.

9) Don't post photos of beer/alcohol, your plate of food, or your coupon crazed haul of 32 bottles of Dove Shampoo, 12 packs of Nabisco crackers, and a Goodyear tire that you got for $3.01.

10) Don't send out game requests. I enjoy some games on Facebook but that doesn't mean I want to get 20 request from you a day about sending you some mojo on Total Jewel Drop 8. 

Feel free to add to the list

There's a woman on my wife's Facebook...let's just say her and dignity have been in the Friend Zone for several years now.

She once posted, as her profile pic, her new tattoo, discreetly located about a quarter of an inch above her genitalia.

She once went one a gigantic rant against her ex-husband that included her admitting that she made him pay her $50 everytime he wanted anal sex. The arguments with the ex's new girlfriend lasted over 300 comments long.

She has no shame in posting the bad habits her 8 year old son has developed, including how he explicitly killed a puppy while she was in full panic mode.

And, in general she's a drama queen who's certain everyone's out to get her while showing the typical "fark what you think anyways" attitude.

Here, here! I go by my real name, but I'm in the same boat. I don't friend customers. I don't friend people that I know with create drama and when I do vent/rant, I'm pretty vague and leave out names and the pertinent details to make it recognizable to anyone in particular. I have folks who keep trying to friend me that I know only in passing and can't seem to get the hint after being turned so many times. I usually end up blocking them. Easily solved. I find Facebook is great for keeping in touch with folks that I have known for nearly 20 years (some longer) but we all live spread out across the country and overseas.

And I HATE Facebook games. Luckily my list of friends have gotten the hint to stop sending me requests. 

And if there is anything worth a damn I want to talk about or post at length (that I don't mind being public), I use my personal website that I've had for the last 15 years.

Oh, forgot about customers. I don't friend them, either. A couple have asked and I tell them I'm not on FB. It's precisely because of work I go by an alias on there. I'm the sales manager for a fairly large company and we have a number of Fortune 100 clients. I meet with executives and CFO's all the time and have cultivated very good relationships with all of them AND their assistants. The last thing I need is some C-Level executive's assistant to find some geeky picture or politically charged rant from me and sour a deal I've got working. My privacy settings are locked down tight but I take no chances.

My father is unstable and was very abusive growing up. Sometimes it is better not to rock the boat, so to speak, and let him have his "rant". It is a complicated situation. My mom is the best. I love her to death and she did a lot for me growing up. If she weren't in the picture, I would have zero communication with my father.

Trust me when I say that I'll be 40 next year and he still treats and talks to me like I'm still living at home. And I have hung up on him. That didn't end well. One time I got a summons in the mail for court with my dad saying that my husband and I did drugs and weren't fit parents. 1) We don't do drugs. 2) We are more than fit parents as anyone who knows us can attest to. It wouldn't be a matter that he'd even get custody, he would just try to make our lives a living hell because he doesn't have control and can't get his way and would do anything in his power to disrupt our lives. So if I have to put up with 30 minutes of him ranting on the phone to keep him from doing something stupid and disrupting out lives, then it is a ironically well wasted 30 minutes. (Coincidentally, the other time i hung up on him, he showed up in a rage on my doorstep (and I live an hour away) and he about broke down my door. I threatened to call the cops if he didn't leave.)

My husband and I have been married nearly 18 years. And he still calls me and tells me I need to divorce my husband and move back home. If I don't answer the phone he starts calling my 16 year old daughter (recent antics of his) on her cellphone, which we are changing the number this week on to stop the harassment.

Point is, it really isn't so cut and dry. My mom is stuck in the middle of it and given the person she is, she really isn't going to walk away from my dad. So it is what it is. It'd break my heart to have her broken hearted by cutting both of them out of our lives to get away from him. There is no sneaking around visiting with her and I. He is just as controlling with her as he thinks he is of me. And there'd probably be hell to pay on her part if she went bind his back.

OMG... how about the people with the google photo sync from their phone as well. Had someone I knew on G+ who didn't turn it off and posted pictures that were intended for her boyfriend. More of her meat curtains that I think ANYONE ever should see... *shudders at thought*. I called her immediately and let her know what was up with her online profile. She was mortified. Told her how to turn off the autosync on her phone (for photos at least). Unfortunately, once it is out on the internet, it's out there. You can only hope they get as much traffic as a random stop light out in BFE in the middle of North Dakota when that happens.

If you "like" a post that is a HIPAA violation, such as a picture or personal patient identifier information, HIPAA and Corporate Compliance consider you a party in the spread of the information because Facebook shares those likes on your wall with anyone. In the case of libelous or slanderous information that violates HIPAA, you're seen as giving it further legitimacy or support, even if you had no physical contact with the patient, or even were in the building at the time.

This might surprise you, but a lot of people have facebook on their phones, on laptops they take out in public, and even on their work computer. And, when you log into facebook, by default is splashes up a page with all the stuff that your friends have recently posted... even the lewd stuff they've posted.

And, this might surprise you as well, but a lot of people don't enjoy opening facebook on their work computer or in a coffee shop to discover that some friend of theirs has, once again, posted some lewd cartoons related to marriage that shows up on their front page news feed.

My suggestion is that if you feel the need to post lewd images and profanity filled rants about your landlord on facebook, figure out how the groups or privacy settings or whatever facebook offers work, and set it up so that a select people are forced see your lewd cartoons and profanity filled rants on their news feed every time they log into facebook, and your relatives can see pictures of the grandkids.

They shouldn't be looking at Facebook at work. And if they enjoy someone's pictures they post but don't want to see them on a public computer, they can remove someone from their main feed so they don't see it. I have kids and I do have friends who post some very questionable (albeit funny) pictures from time to time and I made it so they don't show up in my main feed.

It's not rocket science. I'm not here to police what others see or don't see. They have a choice. X is at the top right of the browser or you can simply remove someone from your friends list if you have an issue with it. My mom did, which I don't have an issue with. The ensuring drama -- mostly imagined on their part -- was more of a pain than anything else.

If I ever posted anything that someone didn't agree with, I have a great group of friends who would be the type of folks who would stand up and tell me. *shrug* Amazingly enough a few have, but definitely not over something as silly as a tongue in cheek lewd comic.

It is generally against most work place policies. And, I am of the advice that you were generally at work to do just that.... work.

It is an unneeded distraction and unless of course you work in job that requires you to work with Facebook.

Seriously... what did folks do without Facebook? Is it that important you can't live a day at work without it?

It's like when you look at a kid and see the look of horror on their face when you told them you didn't have video games growing up and actually had to play outside.

DMZ DEATH: Mixolydian Master: What Facebook disasters may look like

It's down to me and a goatherding 12 year old boy in Bangladesh that don't have Facebook.

No, youre not alone. I deleted my account ( although it never deletes). Im convinced of Facebooks evil. Ive seen people divorce over it, familys' stop talking to eachother, ive even had a girlfriend cheat with a guy she was talking to on there. All the shady info stealing scams on there. And just wait until the facial recognition software they have is up and fully functional. Gonna love being "tagged" in some random persons photo that you just happen to be in the backround of. I just feel alot better about life being unplugged from that crap.


On the other hand, facebook has helped me get laid several times as well kick start a serious relationship that lasted a couple years. Now, I look at her her profile and see how she has totaled her car, is getting ready to lose her job due to a lack of reliable transportation and will have to find a new place to live come May. Her only option as of now is to move back into a small apartment with her bi-polar mother who is on disability. It's a slow motion train wreck and I get the same sense of smug, satisfaction out of watching her thinly veiled cries for help that others have spoken of in this thread.

No regrets.

The Larch: phoxxy: Not lewd in a visual sexual nature. More in content and humor (e.g comics, etc). Judging by your reaction, I think you and my mom would be great friends. Unfortunately, you seem to be equating lewd to something along the lines of porn or something like I'm posting pictures of someone's snatch or something.

You might want to invest in a dictionary, big guy.

lewd: Crude and offensive in a sexual way.

But, if your friends don't mind sexually crude and offensive updates from you on their home page every time they log into facefook... hooray. I'm glad you found them, and they found you.

And you've found a way to make your mom unhappy about what an idiot loser she raised, and you didn't even have to get a tattoo on your face. So... double hooray, I guess.


Is this some new kind of trolling I'm not familiar with?

He's probably THAT guy on Facebook. You know... makes posts that he thinks shows how superior he is but comes off sounding like a raging douchenozzle when he does and insults about everyone he knows while doing it. Then, when someone pokes holes in his logic, he starts grasping at straws and digs a deeper hole for himself. Guys just like him are actually fun to watch implode on Facebook.

BronyMedic: Carousel Beast: I'm not on Facebook at all, though I have a basic grasp of its operation. BUT, I cant for the life of me figure out why liking a post would be a violation of HIPPA. Help me out?

If you "like" a post that is a HIPAA violation, such as a picture or personal patient identifier information, HIPAA and Corporate Compliance consider you a party in the spread of the information because Facebook shares those likes on your wall with anyone. In the case of libelous or slanderous information that violates HIPAA, you're seen as giving it further legitimacy or support, even if you had no physical contact with the patient, or even were in the building at the time.


Well, that makes sense. Very succinct explanation, thank you.

It's not sad, it's awesome.

Used to have to wait for someone to open their gaping piehole to find out if they're an idiot. Now they inform you on a daily basis. In writing, so they can't walk it back and say you heard it wrong or somesuch shiat.

Nope, I'm on that list, too. Somehow, I've found a way to go on living.

CapeFearCadaver: DMZ DEATH: I just feel alot better about life being unplugged from that crap.

Yep. When I did have it, it was only actual friends; you know, people I see on an at least monthly basis... most updates were "band playing a show here on this date" or "here's funny story/picture about my kid"... the drama was people updating ME through the email portion about the crazy crap my psycho ex was posting on his FB. Um, guys, unless he actually threatens to kill me I really don't want to know anything about how horribly he's farked up his life. I don't care.

That and the other ex who wouldn't stop trying to get back together with me.


ahhh yes, the Facebook stalking exs'. Quality stuff right there...

I can't really go into it without identifying the hosptial it happened at, but it had to do with a homeless man who was a frequent flyer at the hospital. Knowing the details, it's a google search away from knowing the whole story. It was a pretty big deal, as it met the criteria for mandatory reporting to the media because of the type of breech, and the libelous content of the facebook post.

Doom MD: phoxxy: Half of the lewd pictures and stuff I repost from my aunt and my mom still has her friended.


The coolest thing about words is that they have meanings that are pre-defined.

Lewd:
a. Preoccupied with sex and sexual desire; lustful.
b. Obscene; indecent.

Sounds like a wicked classy family.

And I HATE Facebook games. Luckily my list of friends have gotten the hint to stop sending me requests. 

And if there is anything worth a damn I want to talk about or post at length (that I don't mind being public), I use my personal website that I've had for the last 15 years.


I think people have figured out FB automatically sends out game request to your friends unless you change the privacy settings. They're not doing it internationally.

You do realize there are varying degrees of what is considered lewd right? For instance, a joke that is tongue in cheek obscene... you get it or you don't. The end result is pretty lewd if you get it. You aren't going to get the joke because you are either 1) a complete dunce or 2) are too innocent to get the "obscene" joke. There's a big difference between someone posting a picture that has some "fark me" joke (or whatever) on it with an indecent picture and one that is meant to be innuendo or obscure in its delivery. Both are lewd, yes, but one is far less than the other or perhaps less obvious.

And grats. You are the second person to use google to look up the definition. Want a cookie? You know how to use the intertubes.

Naw. I had friends doing it on purpose for a while. I know about settings, I haven't messed with it because I have some apps and plugins that interface with Facebook that I use. If you turn off the ability to use apps on and off Facebook, then that kills the functionality of the third party apps I use that interface with it. I have a couple of select third party apps that I use that need the FB functionality.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Facebook is great for reconnecting with chicks from high school. What's crazy is that many of them are bored housewives who would be easy to hook up with. I'd never do that because destroying a marriage over a piece of ass is contemptible, but it's just Airtel that the opportunity is there.

If I was married and my wife was active in Facebook, I'd be a little concerned.


Farkers have read of your love for banging females with mental health problems. Given half a chance you'd surely bang a married girl but that would just make her appreciate what she has at home.

Unfortunately, Brony is already en route to your place with a straightjacket, a full canister of anesthesia, and papers showing you called in a suicide threat. Sadly, you won't make it to the operating room in time. Your family and coworkers will talk about what a nice guy you were (or what an asshole you were) and how no one saw it coming, but it makes sense, that happens all the time. It was nice knowing you!

The company I work for uses Facebook for marketing. I get lots of friend requests from customers and I usually accept so they'll see our updates, but I never post anything on my personal page.

I log-on to make a post about a new product or feature, and then log-off right away. That place give me the willies.

/plus, I don't want anybody in my life to know that my favorite book is 'Cum for Bigfoot'.

Friends will say at a funeral what a nice guy you are.

True friends will tell everyone what an asshole you really were, and why you'd want everyone to laugh instead of being so farking depressed.
