29 Dumbest Things People Do On Facebook
Hit "Like" button when someone posts something bad
What kind of friend likes it when something horrible happens to you? Lots of 'em, it seems. From complaining about strep throat, to being evicted or even sharing that your dear old grandad died, some idiot is going to just hit the like button and leave it at that.
Posting a status update that you hit someone's car while driving drunk
Oregon teen Jacob Cox-Brown here allegedly did this before getting arrested for it.
Littering other people's walls with your peitions
Save the turtles! Of course we are not against your good causes, but sticking them on our walls is like going to someone's house and putting a campaign sign on their lawn. It's just not cool.
Use Scarface as a profile pic if you are a wanted (alleged) Mafia hitman
Pasquale Manfredi, 33, was on Italy's 100 Most Wanted List and had been on the run for a year when his Faceschnook behavior made finding him a teensy bit easier for police.
Use ye olde pic of yourself as a profile picture
Sure, they're funny and you also just want to show people how adorbz you were, but it gets Norma Desmond-creepy after awhile. Let's see a pic of you from this decade, shall we?
Sharing too many pictures of your cat
As annoying as sharing too many pics of your kids but somehow a wee bit sadder.
Post before and after makeover pictures of your dog
Automatically post your Twitter updates to Facebook
Cross-posting your boring life makes it seem twice as boring. Choose a venue to crap out your trivial quips and stick to it.
Post your baby's photo as your own
It doesn't make us think "cute kid," it makes everyone assume you have become immensely fat, lost your hair, etc.
Post updates while getting married
Like this guy. Do the smoosh-cake-in-each-other's-faces thing and then post pics. We can wait.
Play Farmville, Mafia Wars or any of those other time sucks
Post every time a famous person dies
RIP whoever. That's what the Academy Award dead reel is for. And who are the freaks who click "like" on these notices?
Post the pics of your underage beer bong party
Do a video appeal in the shower about needing a place to live
Misspell stuff that the whole world can see
Post on a former U.S. President's Facebook page
Talk about how much you hate your job
Break into someone's house and log into your Facebook account
BBQ endangered animals and post the pictures
Unless you think, "Iguana go to jail" -- don't do it. Read about young Facebookers who allegedly fired up the barbie, roasted a rare animal until well-done and uploaded the pics right here.
Tell people you are going out of town
Unless you want your place robbed, not bright.
Post verdicts of trials that are still in progress
What is this, 2006? The poke feature is now only used by the creepy and/or desperate. It attracts attention, sure, in the same way a grenade thrown into a busy Starbucks would. Ixnay on the okepay, OK?
Spew about how frackin' in love you are
Go on medical leave and then upload pics of you whooping it up
Throw a sick pet pity party
Photo: Susie Felber
Your beloved Snookums is on chemo, which sucks. But don't bring the whole world down with an update that you know will pimp people to write, "Oh I'm sooooo sorry." :(
Comment on photos of people you barely know and haven't seen in over a decade
Let anyone tag a photo of you ever
It can and will be used against you.
