7 Ways To Be Insufferable on Facebook

I’m not too interested in policing how people use Facebook – I have my share of Facebook friends who vaguebook, overshare, “envy post” and so on and either enjoy or ignore their posts as required.

Plus I probably do these things myself too on occasion but at the same time, when I post a cute picture of Sasha, is my subliminal intention to tell the world “I’m better than you because I have a cute kid” or just “I have a cute kid”?

Either way, this article calling out some of the worst offences is interesting.  By their stated criteria, I think my baby pics, unless posted with the intention of making people jealous of my life – and if you are, come change a diaper anytime! – would qualify as “unannoying” to most people viewing them.  (Now if I posted dozens of pictures a day like some new parents do…) 😉

To be unannoying, a Facebook status typically has to be one of two things: 

1) Interesting/Informative 

2) Funny/Amusing/Entertaining 

You know why these are unannoying? Because things in those two categories do something for me, the reader. They make my day a little better.

Ideally, interesting statuses would be fascinating and original (or a link to something that is), and funny ones would be hilarious. But I’ll happily take mildly amusing—at least we’re still dealing with the good guys.
