Things I don't need to know about you via Facebook


  • What you had for lunch today, unless it made you sick and I had the same thing.
  • The mildly entertaining thing your kid did today. Sorry, I'm just not there yet.
  • That your mom/boyfriend/neighbor/professor is "soooooo annoyingggg" without further explanation. Tell the story, people.
  • That you're on your way to work, from work, to the store, or to the bathroom. No one is interested in your specific whereabouts at that exact moment in time, I promise you. (Although exceptions will be made for posts from the bathroom.... that's just gangster.)
  • How many more days until you leave for Vegas/Miami/South America/any place warm and spectacular when it's 30 degrees and snowing outside in my neck of the woods.
  • That you had a horrible day and want to be left alone. To me, that screams "attention whore" and that you want someone to ask you what's wrong. If that's the case, call a friend or hug a puppy.
  • The condition of your bowels. Not even if you're my friend in real life, not even if it's life-threatening.
  • Anything remotely related to your sex life. TMI to the tenth power.
What kind of Facebook updates bother you? Do you have that one "friend" who updates their status so much that you have to remove them from your news feed? (I do. So don't feel bad.)

I hide 75% of my "friends'" news feed. I don't hide yours though because you are not annoying.

I don't have *that* many FB friends. I only add people I would actually want to hang out with in real life and I never add work people. Ever. (I know that made me sound really bitchy, didn't it?)

I do have a friend who uses ping.fm to update all of his "social networks" like Twitter, FB, whatever else he uses. So he'll have 45 updates a day with things like records he likes, what he's reading, etc. That drives me crazy.
