I have this woman on my fb, she is in her early 20's, she used to be one of my staff members. She has recently become engaged and she posts hundreds of photo's a day, which doesn't necessarily bother me at all but the photo's are so dam embarrassing. They are basically porn with clothes on between her and her partner. I just can't imagine what she is thinking when she posts them, her and her partner in bed kissing, kissing in the pool with hands all over each other, eating each others faces while they are eating at a restaurant, it's full on! I get that they are in love and I am very happy for them but it's a little over the top. Although it's so funny. Do you think people go a little over board with facebook at times and forget that ex bosses, older family members, current work mates are viewing their intimate details?

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

I actually had somebody I knew from highschool post a nude pic where she just covered up the parts that would get the picture removed by facebook. She got unfriended because I really didn't need to see that much of her.

I am one of those "don't air your dirty laundry in public" type of people. Nobody ever really knows what's going on in my relationship excpet for those close to me; other than occasional comments on COMs when I think my situation will help somebody else.

I think they need to start teaching modesty as a class in public school....and make it mandatory.

I leave like 3 status' one day and none another day. But some people seriously take a photo of their new undies they bought or something or post every time they go somewhere to look like they're cool and have a life it's ridiculous.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

REALLY?!? I just have to laugh at those people who have the delusion that they're the star of their own reality show. Nobody cares if you just went to the bathroom, and not everything you post is a nugget of wisdom. REALLY.
BTW, has anybody read this? Hilarious!

Hi Ladies,
I too see, read, and after stopping to read the first line of the 40th status update from that person in that same day.... I giggle (or honestly...roll my eyes even) LOL and then keep it moving on down my newsfeed. I used to be annoyed by all this extra posting or some content of the pics/posts, but I then took a second to step back and out of that zone... I mean I see it now as I was being selfish or judgmental. (my own opinion, of myself at that time) I had to check myself and remember:
1st that I have full control of what's viewed or posted on MY FB page and also what shows in my newsfeed. :) So decisions to either "defriend" or just "unsubscribe" to a particular persons post disabling their posts from showing on MY newsfeed ;) << love that option
2nd that FB is social network, and that FB and MySpace were created to connect with people you know, maybe grew apart from with time/distance, from schools, close COOL family lol or relationship stuff ;) I don't ever remember starting out adding or even looking for any family, or managers from work, teachers etc. Uh uh LOL!!!!!! (idk if that's the case with other ppl but that was me)
3rd and my main "closing argument" :) FB to many people has changed a lot! (I.e. Purpose of use, guidelines, "code of conduct" etc.) This isn't Link'd In or a business (per say) created social network "originally". FB is so much more. It is used for self expression. Each profile designed with art, personal pics, subscriptions, movie likes, music likes, different page of topic discussions, pics of sayings/quotes/jokes, love-humor-support-guilt-friendships- so so much people use FB to express. Mostly it's self expression and we can learn a lot of people.s character and personality just by viewing their page. FB yes now has so much drama and too much revealing of ppl's sh*t but it's also helped many people evolve. That's my little aka LONG speal on my opinion of FB profanity, xxx pg13 Pix and the constant need to check in their every move.... It's just expressing and sharing life's journey. Some ppl like and embrace this method others don't. Who am I to judge.... Thank for sharing your thought too ladies. I truly hope mine doesn't offend anyone. Take care :) ~ Melissa

I suppose it's better than one of my fb friends who even tells the world when she is going to put the kettle on. The lady you mention will hopefully grow out of this habit sometime soon n you can turn on you fb without cringing.

There's a plethora of melodrama on my FB today. It's almost funny if I didn't feel so embarrassed for these people.

No one abuses me for posting stuff about Logan if they did I'd give them a mouthful about how lame they are for posting stuff about their relationship drama.

I agree Shane, they don't have kids! They don't understand what it is like. They just have different priorities than we do, I have de friended a lot of singles who insist on updating their status about their latest shag or how much alcohol they can consume before they projectile vomit across the room. Yes I was young, stupid and wild once but there was no fb back then to broadcast my stupidity! Thank God :)

Thank you Nikki =) That's exactly what all my family said about it when I got upset and told them about being abused for posting stuff about Christian. I guess it might be annoying to people who don't have kids and don't know what it's like (especially since he's my first) But I do think it's wrong putting up piccies of yourself/friends either half naked, or in provocatuve poses and stuff like that. I have my aunties, mum, sister, cousins and their kids on here and I wouldn't dream of putting up smut, even if I didn't have family on here. There's been a few things around the net about bosses/potential bosses looking up their employees on facebook and then being fired or not hired because of it. I love reading about my friends kids, and my cousins kids, it makes me feel like I'm actually being able to see them grow up =)

No Shane I thinks it's pretty normal for a lot of mums. I don't really post much, I use it more so to catch up with friends but most of my friends that have kids post a LOT of pictures and statuses about them. I actually like it because a lot of them live far away so it's nice to be able to see updated photo's of my nieces and nephews all the time.

I post alot of pictures of my son up on facebook, and also update my status a few times a day...99% of the time about bubba. I have had 2 people abuse me for putting too much about my son onf acebook, saying they don't "give a fuck" that he's crawling, or teething, or smiling and laughing. I abused the hell out of them and deleted and blocked them. I mean, it's my facebook and I have a lot of family and close friends on there who I don't see often and love to hear about mine, my partner's and our son's life. I've deleted about 30 people for putting up statuses about how high they are, how drunk they are, how many girls/guys they're screwing etc etc. Do any of you think it's wrong for me to put so much stuff about my son? Just curious. =) I mean, if these people didn't like readig about it all, they could either, delete me, not read my stuff or just hide posts from me.

A lot of people do it to be sarcastic especially when they've posted a rant passive agressively about an unknown person.

I am only friends with people I personally know and am actually real friends with. One friend of mine will post at least 30 posts a day! Its hardly ever a status though, its always a link or page she found interesting. Like everybody else wants to see it. My cousin is always complaining about her husband and another friend is always telling what she is eating for dinner!! Some people! I have gone days and days without a status update. I haven't posted pictures in a few months. Its just not that important

I have someone on my Facebook who went to Niagra Falls for Valentine's Day weekend and the entire time she was posting pictures of their itinerary; what time they got up, where they were going to eat, what they had planned for the day, pictures of items they bought. And not to mention changing her status every few hours. Why do we need to know all this? The trip is for her and her boyfriend, not her, her boyfriend, and everyone on Facebook. Geez.

I agree Amber Internet and social networking etiquette should now be mandatory for all high school students. I just don't think they realise what a huge impact fb could have on their lives if they are posting inappropriate content.

I cringe when I see people having big fights and airing their dirty laundry. Or when other "friends" implicate others in their poor judgment.

I had a shocking experience on fb about 3 years ago, I swear it will haunt me for the rest of my life! When I was a late teen/early 20's I was a little wild and I know a lot of my friends have horrific photos of me off my face flashing my boobs and god knows what else.
Well one of my old friends (who has no shame) thought it would be a great idea to post old photos and he tagged me in all these boobie pics.

The worst part was that at that time I was friends with heaps of parents from my work, I am sure they felt really comfortable with me managing the child care their children attended after seeing them! I am friends with my aunties my husband's grandfather, brothers and sisters, cousins etc and so many people saw them because I hadn't checked fb in a few days!

I got a phone call late one night from my sister's boyfriend informing me my boobs were all over facebook! I have never been so embarrassed in my life, I almost killed my friend Beau and I have never been able to look my hubby's grandfather in the eyes since.

It still makes me feel like throwing up :( although I see the funny side now, thankfully everyone who saw them was very polite and understanding. (it was clear they had been taken when I was much younger.)

I post TMI on CoM, but only because it's in a thread where people are talking about it. My 500 friends from school, work, church, Damian's work and family don't need to know that I have gripes about my relationship and that Damian and I sometimes fight. Fighting on Facebook just invites other people to either spread things that are an exaggerated version of what is happening or comment on what you're fighting about.

Yes and end up upsetting just about everyone in the process. They just don't seem to understand ettiquete or have any manners. I actually think that a number of them don't realise just how many people are linked to them even in a round about way.

I have friends (who are more friends of friends, we dont hang out together but see each other through mutual friends) who are always saying "sexy" stuff to each other on FB and she posts sexy profile pics all the time. Its a little annoying! Everyone knows that she is bi and they have threesomes - and if you didn't know, you will after you read some of their comments on each others status updates. I just think, really, do you have to? We didn't need to know! LOL

[deleted account]

I don't have pics on my FB but i do leave status' a lot but thats ebcause i'm stuck at home 90% of the time.

[deleted account]

People do go overboard....a friend of mine posts every fight she has with her bf...its so stupid..saying she hates him in her status one day..then she loves him the next. Got make out pics up...then pics of her with her ex's....its stupid.

People go way too far with updating their status about everything or posting pics of everything instead of just living life. Then wondering why people are 'judging them' or 'in their business' or 'have to comment on everything they do'.

Yes, I do feel that some people go too far with Facebook. I have people on my friend's list alone who update their status like 20 times or more a day, saying everything that they do or need to do in the day. They post pictures from clubs and parties of people drunk. A fight they just had with so and so and how they are planning on getting back at them.
I have even had a couple of people post what they just did in the bathroom lol. I know a lot of the time in that sense it is likely jokingly, but why? It gets to be kind of ridiculous after a while.

I am friends with waaay to many people in the community and watch WHAT I post, not to mention pictures. That's beyond tacky.
I couldn't even imagine what my work would think if I did something like that!!
