But you just shared it now, so you should be good.
Good point, now I'm safe from hell's fires!
I share a lot of pictures on fb but not like what Cali shared. I share mostly funny pics or pics with quotes about how im feeling at the time.
But none saying if you love your grandma share this picture OR SHE WILL DIE!!!
I don't like the 'sign this petition' posts, where you go on and there's a place to sign, but no real information on what you're protesting about. I won't usually sign anyway but less likely to do so when I can't figure out what the issue really is.
Honestly I don't mind and do share some of the funnies, those silly pics and the stories, Oh! Like the one that just came up again the other day about the farmer and the sheriff "Show him your badge!" BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! And obviously I did share the "Corgi, for no reason" just cuz you can't not share enough Corgi .
But I agree, these ones mentioned in the title are OUTRAGEOUS! I mostly scroll through them, because they're shared mostly by one person who I really don't want to stop seeing her personal pictures and updates, but yeah, oh, and the endless stream of half nude sexy posed men, okay I get it, but sorry I really don't care to see them myself, again not people I don't want to block their updates so I just scroll through them.
I always ignore them. Like a boss.
Ugh, hate those. Also religious posts. I defriend/permahide anyone that posts religious statuses, for personal reasons.
Same. lol any reason to use the pope cat.
I don't mind "happy religious" personal statuses.. "Thank god for ______" and "church was so great on tuesday" and "Be nice to your neighbors, WWJD" such and such. As with most things, if your religion makes you a kinder, more tolerant, happier person, I'm all for it..whatever.
but the minute it turns towards 100 shares a week of jesus loves you/bible pictures/share this if you believe in god!, "If we kept god in _____, this wouldn't have happened", quoting the bible, keep christ in christmas, anything against equal rights, anything suggesting those who don't believe in god are missing out in some way, anything making fun of OTHER religious (which always makes me laugh),
delete delete delete.
Oh and anyone dumb enough to be sharing that "ban the abortion pill..god says life is precious" Plan B thing going around.
Plan b =/= abortion pill you moron.
I have no problem with people sharing their views (even ones I 9million times do not agree with).
I have no problem with people sharing funny pictures or jokes or quotes or whatever.
I DO have a problem with "bullying" which I think of in a few forms, the first is If you don't like/share this than xyz and the second is when someone posts a view and then if you don't agree with it the name calling begins. I actually deleted my cousin because he falls into the second category. The funny part is that I agree with him 98% of the time, but my family tends toward the conservative and religious end... I think that 98% of time they're retarded but there is no reason to get down right nasty when they disagree with you and state their reasons for not agreeing. So... *poof,* he was gone.
However, on that note. I did tell one of my friends not to take offense but I was going to have to unfriend bc if I saw one more of his FAP Nation "likes," my eyes were going to burn out of my face. He appologized and stopped liking things or changed some setting that it didn't show up on his news feed. But, I did tell him he could do what he wanted to on his FB... I just didn't want to see it on mine. So while I would still be friends with him in real life I wouldn't be on FB. lolololol.
The ones I hate most are the religious shares that say things like "remember, Jesus said "whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
Oops. I didn't yell that I love Jesus from the rooftops this morning. Now people will think I'm a Satanist and I'll end up in hell.
I hate the fact that its not even just your friends posting the stuff. If your friends like it/comment on it, then it shows up. I don't mind all the jokes but all those made up stories like "the lady behind me at wal Mart couldn't afford her food so I paid $567,829,948.74 to buy her groceries for her." Then they get 6 million likes??? I don't understand.
I started using twitter more and just use Facebook for dog show stuff, but now people are retweeting stuff like the grandma picture.
It makes me want to make a bunch of fake ones. I suspect that grandma one started that way.
Speaking of Facebook, does anyone's family do this?
"ALEX, WHAT DID YOU MEAN WITH STATUS?"
"...it's lyrics to a song..."
"Well....why did you post them?"
"because I like the song."
"Well....what does it mean?"
"ALEX, WHY WERE YOU IN BUSHWICK AT 2PM LAST NIGHT THAT'S NOT A VERY SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD."
"ALEX, WHY IS THERE A PICTURE OF YOU OUTSIDE WITH NO COAT ON AND SHORT IT'S 10 DEGREES OUTSIDE"
"....that picture was taken FOUR SUMMERS AGO."
"Alex, oh my God, is so-and-so okay? DID YOU TALK TO THEM? DID YOU SEE WHAT THEY POSTED ON FACEBOOK?!?" (always in reference to an either completely sarcastic or unimportant post).
Oh god, I think our parents related :rofl1:
That's when you unfollow on Twitter. I wouldn't ever follow anybody on Twitter who pulls that crap. I haven't run into that, fingers crossed.
I'm so glad that the limited family I have on Facebook are pretty much lurkers. The only slightly awkward thing I've run into was when, soon after my foster litter of 9 left (which Chester was not happy about), I posted a picture of Chester with him face-planted against the back of the couch and his eyes closed, and I captioned it, "Dear Flying Spaghetti Monster, please don't let Mommy ever ever ever ever bring home anymore puppies again. Ever. Your faithful servant, Chester" My aunt commented questioning what FSM was. I didn't have the heart to tell her, so I just ignored it.
But yes, the only person I've seen share the ones you're mentioning happens to be one of my 2 best girlfriends (the one I'm completely opposite of). I just groan in mental pain, then shake my head and think, "Amanda, Amanda, Amanda.... Why? Just... why?!"
