    Is anyone else tired of these (mostly fake/ untrue) stories/ pictures on Facebook?

    I'm so tired of seeing these things it's making me not want to load my news feed.... Am I just old and grumpy? LOL

    As soon as someone posts one of those, I tell facebook not to show that person's updates in my feed anymore.

    Cali, that's nice of you :p

    I delete anyone who posts that crap. I get a lot more status updates of people complaining about people posting XYZ than I do of actual XYZ on my newsfeed now.

    I hate it so much.. when did facebook become about sharing 1000000 random things a day?
    Sure, I love when friends share interesting pictures, quotes, articles.. those are awesome! But like random guilt posts? pictures of depressing things? Ugh. It's the worst.

    Those people usually get three strikes and then deleted with me.

    I don't really do Facebook and this is probably part of the reason why.

    Ditto what Cali said. I don't care for those kind of tactics from anyone anywhere.

    I ignore and/or block them. They're as idiotic as the people posting them.

    Gah, I hate those so much. I ignore them always and just think they are stupid and pointless. Heck, maybe I want my Grandmother to die.. ah ha ha J/K or am I? You'll never know.

    I do the same as Cali. They're super annoying. Possibly more annoying than game requests (because you can hide those!)

    I normally delete those people. But the people who do it most are family. (My grandmother shares her Jesus stuff every single day. And any other political/ridiculous crap she can.) Usually it's wrong information, too. Very annoying.

    Most of my friends share their pics of their dogs, their horses & their accomplishments etc ... I have a lot of friends from around the world, some of them are guys so you know what kind of ... Stuff they sometimes like/share, like most ...'they get three strikes & they are out for me. I like to keep my news feed to ppl who post their animals & humorous things about animals OR what I really use FB for: animals in need of homes that need shares.

    I love you.

    This year was a rare year, I didn't have to delete anyone from my FB for the "saying Xmas is from the devil!"

    Speaking of the devil, the internet taught me in 2012 that LOL actually means "Lucifer our Lord" and is slang that satanists use. I didn't share that one, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to hell, as are all of my friends who didn't learn that information when I didn't share it. Oops.

    I've deleted quite a few family members for posting crap I don't want to see. If they ask why I've unfriended them, I flat out tell them I don't want to see their political agenda or constant updates on my newsfeed, and hand them my phone number. In my opinion, being "family" doesn't give you a free pass to be obnoxious, and I still have a good relationship with every one of my immediate and extended family members.

    You know, sometimes its not worth unfriending someone when you can just hide them from your newsfeed:) For me, FB it MY page...I post political and otherwise strong statements, beliefs, etc. Somedays I post a lot, some days I dont.

    GreenMagick, there's a BIG difference between posting radical religious/political opinions, even regularly, and posting "like this picture of my grandmother or you want yours to die" or "like this picture of shoes if you love jesus, don't like it if you want to go to hell".
