You don't have to be a "breeder" to overshare on fb.
 
2013-06-02 02:49:48 PM
Well, if you feel you have to friend those people on FB for social reasons, simply keep their image posts off your feed.

There, problem solved. That will be a $2,500 consulting fee.

Why can't you just opt out of receiving updates by certain people?

It takes like 2 clicks.

Well, FB did start while those same people were in college/highschool so it seems like a natural progression whether you like it or not.  I guess FB is the father.
 
2013-06-02 02:52:09 PM
I don't remember ever seeing any of those on Facebook, sadly, I can't say the same on Fark.
However, in all fairness, I am much more careful of what I click on, here and elsewhere, then I once was.

Usually getting pregnant or engaged gets you hidden for about a year.

I have a number of childhood friends on facebook, and at first it was nice to catch up with them and see what they are doing these days, but after a while I realized that some of them were not people I would probably be friends with if I had just met them, so I just hide their feeds except for important events.  So, for example, when one of my childhood friends who is now a rabid teabagger had another child I saw the post and was able to congratulate them. All his other teabagging rants remain nicely hidden from view.

Some people are lazy and just want something to biatch about. Others aren't grasping the "social" concept of "social media".

Lately, I've been noticing women on Facebook (in their 30s and 40s) posting pictures of their haircut looking for approval in the form of "likes".

Full aggressive: When I see my baby sweetly wave at an adult... and the adult does NOT wave back, I want to cut that adult's hand off so they would have reason to ignore my child.

Wow.

There are always adoption agencies, including the one for eAdoptions, just fake kids for your FB page in all sorts of cutsy so you can outdo your FB friend's cutsy.

Each fake kid can grow up to have a guest shot on Catfish.

My friend's wife posted naked bath pictures of the three year old fraternal twins. You could pretty much see everything of the girl and it was the cover photo for the album. That was the day I downgraded her appearances on my feed... also I hope to god none of their other friends are secret pedophiles. I tried to tell her it was a bad idea but she wouldn't listen.

Sometimes these things just jump out of nowhere and you are left wanting the eyebleach.

The fun part is that if you're a male and wave at her pweshus widdle iddums, you may have her scream at you for being a pervert and/or potential kiddie diddler.

Youbook sucks for many more reasons than this.

I made the mistake once of looking for old high school buddies on the FaceTube thing a few years ago.

I found a pic of the high school QB jock - he was at a bowling alley.

This was about 20 years after graduation.

20 years gone by and the best picture he could share with the entire world was him at a bowling alley.

Booktube is awesome. It instantly labels geeks, dorks and morans and lets you avoid them.

People who use facebook are less happy about their lives. Quitting facebook is about the easiest thing you can do to make yourself happier. The people who are important in your life you'll make an effort to stay in contact with. If you really care abotu someone you can spend more than 2 seconds clicking the "like" button to show it.

This article assumes FB at one time occupied place in the pantheon of websites that upgraded the quality of one's life as opposed to promoting narcissistic displays confirming the stupidity of certain elements of humans.

Or maybe the author is talking about another FB, one that is only available in the southern hemisphere.
 
2013-06-02 03:03:20 PM
I'm friends on facebook with lots of people who have kids and I've never once seen anything like what the article discusses.

The only bad part about Facebook is all the people on it. Come to think of it that's the only thing wrong with the world. If I could just set up a system to produce my food and an AI to post to and argue with on Fark I wouldn't need ANY of you.

I don't get on Facebook much at all any more. Most of the newsfeeds are people reposting memes, articles and cartoons. Not particularly interesting ones either. I also hate the ads that pop up everywhere.

I have a cousing who's FB posts are either inspirational religious quotes or about her baby. I'm guessing her life isn't that limited but it's monotonous to see her comments.

Is no one aware that Facebook offers users the option to edit what content they receive in their news feeds? If someone is clogging up your page with stuff that doesn't interest you, and for whatever reason you don't want to de-friend them, just restrict their posts.
 
2013-06-02 03:15:04 PM
With exception to a few people who post too many pics of their kids (or constantly talk about their kids being sick with a stomach bug - seriously good birth control there), the people who annoy me more are people who check in places.  Unless you're going somewhere totally unique or on a special occasion, I really don't need to know where you eat all your meals or every time you go to the gym or get coffee.  I also seem to have more people who post pictures of their pets every day than their kids.  Sure your dog is cute, but I don't need daily pic updates of it.

You're right, but that drives me bonkers. My child is almost two, and one of the most depressing things I've noticed is that many people are so terrified of offending parents that they avoid interacting with their children. Even other parents at playgroups - if some kid comes over and grabs something my kid is playing with, that other parent freaks out, apologizes, takes the toy away from their child, moves the child to some other area of playgroup. The end result is that no one interacts with the kids, and they barely get to interact with each other. Kids are going to be little arseholes to each other - they need to learn how to be human by interacting with other babies and adults, with the guidance of their parents. Argh!

Facebook is only what you make it. I have a few people hidden except for "most important" updates. They are all one-subject posters: kids (one's a pageant mom, yeesh), bible verses, cars, griping about work. I like social media, but then again, I also like being social.

I will say that it has its perks: I have relatives scattered around the OKC area, and I was able to hear from them that they were alright Friday night via facebook. You post one time & everyone knows instead of having to call everyone individually.

No, but like you said I'm not gonna risk it. If I'm waiting in line like at the supermarket, I'll start messing with my cell phone like I'm checking my voice mail or something so that I'm not even looking at her mouth-breathing sprog.
 
2013-06-02 03:22:36 PM
Yeah, as if childless freaks aren't prone to over-sharing stupid pictures of their cats or anything.
