You know what really grinds my gears? People who overshare on Facebook.
Like, do I really need to know what over 1,000 plus friends on my Facebook are doing every minute of the day? Do I really need to know what you ate for dinner? What your boyfriend did to you? What’s happening in every trimester of your pregnancy? What girl you are beefing with? Or for the umpteenth time what happened at the music award show (yes we all saw it, we own a gosh darn TV!-Side eyes*) the constant need for an influx of unnecessary information on my newsfeed is irritating the hell out of me. Yes, I’m talking to you serial status updater, you can’t fall asleep (as posted on your page) because you are too busying staring at your phone screen and maybe your boyfriend broke up with you (as posted on your page) because you #dotoomuch and you treat your Facebook like your personal diary.
And you know what’s even more frustrating? – Your attempts to butcher the English language in your statuses. Would it kill you to actually spell out the words “ btw, 2nite, plz” or put the right punctuations where they belong? Good grief, Facebook has enough characters to use so there’s no excuse as to why you feel the need to shortchange your readers.
So I am pleading to you, serial status updater, your constant updates and misinformation is torturous. For all of our sake, please kindly ponder on the content you want to share with the rest of the world, and while you are at it, make sure your grammar is up to par before subjecting the rest of us to your poorly written Facebook "thug beef status".
