10 Things You Do That Make You a Facebook Jackass

by Extreme John on April 8, 2010

Facebook Jackass

I guess while I am in the middle of my most recent brain dump and writing post after to post during just about every hour of the day I find myself wanting to poke fun at Facebook people again. As I juggle through my phone answering emails and doing day to day business I can’t help but notice more and more annoying things appearing on my Facebook wall daily. Of course these things have finally irritated me enough to write a post about it.

Facebook Fun

10 Things You Do That Make You a Facebook Jackass

  1. Bad mouth your partner in status updates because of a spat your having.
  2. Constantly confess your unmatched love for your partner… So pathetic….
  3. You tag people in those stupid calendar things hoping to generate comments.
  4. You troll looking for things to comment on that have nothing to do with you.
  5. Your status updates take up more then 25% of my wall or anyone else’s wall for that matter.
  6. You constantly share with the world how fucking great your life is.
  7. You brag about your workout that you’ve been doing for all of three days… five times a day.
  8. You write weird sayings hoping they will captivate someone’s heart. PUKE.
  9. Your constantly crying the “wo-is-me” routine.
  10. Everything you write is in CAPS or some language no one understands.

Everyone and anyone that uses Facebook on a regular basis can probably add a list of 5-10 things that they can’t stand about Facebook or the things that their friends or family members might do on Facebook. Take a quick second and leave a comment with something you would like to add to the list of things that make people Facebook jackass’s, or comment on one of the things listed above.

P.s. Dawn really killed it with the images for this post, thanks Dawn!

Great list but you FORGOT the # 1 and #2 Facebook Peeves.
1. You are not a memeber of the MAFIA because you play an online game.
2. You are not a FARMER because you have an online farm.
Spend a little more time with your family or friends
and stop ferilizing fake plants and collecting
fake animals for your fake farm.

I find that people who spend the entire day on Facebook reading other peoples lives, don’t really have much going on in their own. If they are happy though, go for it. I’m all for people doing what makes them happy. I do get annoyed when people say, “I poked you and didn’t get anything back.” Oh, that’s because you poked me 5 minutes ago and Facebook isn’t on my mind all day. Having said that, mobile phone marketing is going to take off this year. I highly recommend anyone who has a business to try it out. I just signed my business up and actually getting involved with the mobile phone marketing company because I love it so much. I just signed up a tanning salon yesterday.

@Anthony @ Bounce House Rental, My sister-in-law was visiting at my home last week and she sat at the computer and poked a friend back and forth at least 15 times over a 10 minute period. I swear it true, she was doing nothing else on the computer except waiting for the poke back, so she could poke back. Get A Life FaceBook extremists.

@SafariDave, Yeah that’s ridiculous. I know a lot of people who do that. The best is when you log on and someone messages you in .00001 seconds asking, “did you get my invite? What about my poke, did you get my bumper sticker too.” No I didn’t because I canceled my account, bye.

To me, FaceBook is a complete annoyance, what was once a bit of fun has turned in to a digital slagging match combined with a love fest of people been poked, while visiting farmville to try and raise goats to tag someone you’ve never met…… Ooo I feel better now :lol:

Self taken profile pix grind me. Camera in one hand, trying to snap a sexy, seductive look…and you know they’re in the bathroom cause the toilet is in the background. And the look on some of their faces makes me wonder what they’re doing with the free hand? Geez, with 500 facebooks friends you would think they could find someone to take the picture.

I am in the 1% of people who does not have a personal face book page. Now my wife is a different story. She is one of these people who will post the stupidest crap. Anytime my name pops up on her status updates all my buddies will post the most crude crap you can imagine. I finally put a stop to it. The only cool thing is that we get to see just how screwed up everyone else is.

What I hate most about Facebook is the updates I’m receiving in various games such as Farmville, Mafia Wars, etc. since I am not playing any of those games. I hope that Facebook will do something to filter wall posts to exclude those updates.

You can always hide the updates you don’t want like for games or apps. You can even hide an update from a person/user.

I used to just leave those un-interesting invites to do something like Farmville, Mafia wars, etc. in the invites bar because I thought I would offend the senders if I press the Ignore button. Now, I don’t care. The number of invites have grown stupidly numerous. Now, I just press ‘Ignore’ without even looking at who’s sending it. :)

People who invite me to play Farmville or take quizzes are annoying to me. Also when I look on my feed and see nothing but Farmville stuff I just think what a waste this is.

I am an extreme Facebook fanatic. I use it for about 2-3 hours a day just to views pic & status updates of my more than a hundred friends. And I love commenting on pics & happenings on my friends account. I constantly ask new friends I meet offline if they have FB so I can tag them. Absolutely love it!

John, I know this is an older post but I just noticed the title and felt compelled to read it. You’ve hit this dead on – all of these Facebook antics are some of my pet peeves as well. I also can’t stand it when FB friends update their statuses every hour. I’d say one or two statuses a day MAXIMUM…I mean, who cares about what people ate for breakfast or what they’re watching on TV at that moment?

Oh, and the Facebook/jackass picture is awesome!
