You know, you’ve been there.

The Vague-Monster

For flip’s sake just say whatever it is you are there to say . Stop posting cryptic messages that make us all doubt your sanity or wonder if we need to send over the local Sheriff to check on you. It’s creepy and annoying.

The Post-Bomber

You really piss me off. You come by MY post and drop a bomb on it. You probably have been on my friends list for going on 3 years, have never spoken to me, and suddenly there you are dropping your-version-of-truth-BOMB on my post. Suddenly we are friends, right? Your view opposes my post, ok, fine. Scroll on and leave me to my own opinions that have been getting along just fine without your blowing up my posts.

The TMI-er

Need I say more? These are the same people that take selfies in front of toppled baskets of laundry and empty cans on the floor in the background. My grandmother would have termed it “no couth.”

The “Is this thing on”-er

These are the people that leave a name as a comment. Clearly what you are looking for is the search bar. Facebook is not the most complicated thing to use but there are still folks out there who have no idea what they are doing. Stop leaving comments in weird places that have nothing to do with anything.

The Wet Blanket

You’re having a bad day, I get it. But why make sure the entire planet is also having a bad day. Your venting posts are depressing. Some of this is ok — really it is — but if you are raining on every parade you can find, it might be time to take a bit of a break from social media.

The Look at Me

Thankfully a lot of you have navigated your way to Instagram. But still the daily Facebook reminders that you are smarter than everyone, more beautiful than everyone, and have a more exciting life than everyone else are a bit over-the-top. Your attention hogging comments are annoying.

The Sheep

You post and share everything you see on Facebook without regards to its actual authenticity. Before you share something that is usually highly flammable, why not fact-check for a moment?

The Devil’s Advocate

You disagree with literally any comment or conversation that’s going on and have to state your opinion as if correcting the world is your personal job. Most people are not looking for an argument. You are abrasive and irritating.

The Instigator

Stop stirring up mess just so you can have something to do on a Saturday afternoon. Starting arguments or making it a point to locate stupid people on the internet just to point out that they are stupid is just, well, stupid. You are very-near to Troll status. Don’t get me started on Trolls.

The Creeper

Your random Facebook friends requesting and even more random private messages are creepy. Facebook is not a dating app. If you are on the prowl to find a mate perhaps get off the computer and go out into the world and just talk to people. If they grab their purse and back away from you be advised that they think you are creepy.
