15 Shameless Things We All Do on Facebook

3 years ago

It’s no secret that Facebook is the largest social media outlet on the Internet to date.  With over 1.37 billion monthly active users, it’s safe to say that everyone and their mother is on Facebook.

Given the widespread use of the forum, certain behaviors have come to be commonplace, and -- at times -- downright necessary. So for your entertainment, here are 15 shameless things we all do on Facebook!

1. Regret commenting on someone’s post because of the endless parade of comments that come after.

2. Block someone from your feed because you like them, but you’re tired of seeing pictures of their babies and/or attempts to start a political revolution.

3. De-friend someone for too many Candy Crush invites. You may be able to overlook excessive newborn photography or getting on a soapbox for a cause, but Candy Crush? That’s not the kind of person you need in your life.

4. Un-tag yourself from a photo someone else has posted of you because it’s unflattering.

5. Peruse other people’s lives through their photos. It’s what they are there for, after all. That, and so that you can…

6. Pull up a person’s profile picture when you’re talking about them if the person you’re talking to doesn’t know who you’re talking about.

7. Curse Zuckerberg and his entire family every time you get another “messenger” notification.

8. Same goes whenever the mobile app tells you that you can “find friends nearby!”

9. Triple check your status updates before pressing “post” because God forbid you have to go back and edit it, thus broadcasting your inability to get it right on the first shot. Stinking “edited” notation. Tell me why, Facebook!!!

10. Have 5 friends with a birthday but make a conscious decision to only post on the wall of 3 of them.

11. Get annoyed with people who like their own statuses. Why is that even an option?

12. RSVP “maybe” to an event you have no intention of attending.

13. Consider a relationship serious once it’s “Facebook official.”

14. Selectively publish a post to only a certain group of people, or exclude someone in particular. Utilize those privacy settings, baby!

15. Leave a person in eternal friend limbo. You have 1 or 2 mutual friends, but you’re not sure if you want to accept. So forever in your invite list they will stay.
