Top 10 annoying things about Facebook

The realm of Facebook is as diverse as its inhabitants but there are things it does to annoy you that are pretty much universal. Here is a top 10 list of things I have found that have gotten under my skin throughout the years and I’m sure you have felt a mixture of these things happen to you.

10.) Top 10 lists about your life.

9.) Gifts

8.) Farmville (or any other game you can think of)

Don’t let your life  revolve around times when you need to harvest things. Just get the real thing, please?                                               Photo credit: michael_reuter

7.) Group Invites

Once is annoying but if you keep sending those join group requests even after rejection you are risking being Facebook dumped. The only exception to the rule is the “I don’t care about your farm, fish, park, of mafia” group.  Photo credit: David Reber’s Hammer Photography

6.) Notification of being tagged in a photo and finding out the photo was removed

Why would you tag people to then remove them and the picture altogether? Photo credit: Alan Stanton

5.) Creepy Ads

 Which one is it, Facebook?

How does Facebook generate these things? Some of the crazier one’s I’ve seen include “Need some senior loving?”, “Meet hot, young, Catholic singles,” and “Pavorotti gang-bang photos.” Why can’t we hide them somehow? Photo credit: Brett L.

4.) Poking

Unless you are a child, no adult does this on a regualr basis in real life. Poking is not fun but simply disturbing. Photo credit: cambodia4kidsorg

3.) “Lost Phone” Facebook exploitation

2.) Threads or chain notifications


Now everytime you are tagged or “like” something on Facebook you will recieve notifications everytime someone comments on it. A quick, annoying way to fill up your inbox. Photo credit: sfu.marcin

1.) Too many status updates
