Ten things idiots do on Facebook. Are you one of them?

Share this article

I am forced to write this post after seeing so many “idiots” around me on Facebook doing weird things. Like real world, there are few etiquettes which one should follow in the cyber world, but again, like real world, some people just don’t give damn to the manners or they just are not aware that such manners do exist. Believe me there are lots of stupid things people do without even knowing it. In this post I have compiled top 10 things what idiots do on Facebook:

1. Use caps lock all the time:

How many time have you seen a person posting in upper cases? a few time for sure! Using Caps lock is equivalent to shouting but few people around us prefer to “shout”, always. They forget that they can turn that caps lock off or they simply don’t care like these two jerks here:

2. Like your own status, link, photos and whatever:

Seriously, what are you? A self obsessed narcissist? How does it sounds in Facebook ticker: “XYZ likes his/her own status”. Give a chance for others to like your status and links. Don’t be a despo.

3. Auto Update Facebook status from Twitter:

One needs to understand that Facebook and Twitter are two different kinds of Social Networks. On Twitter you keep on sharing stuff every minute, it is acceptable. Facebook is not the same. You don’t go around flooding your friends’ feeds by auto posting all your tweets as your Facebook status.

4. Spread Hoax:

I know Facebook encourages to share. I also know that you are a concerned citizen but it doesn’t mean you will share whatever craps you find might be “helpful” for public. These hoax include Facebook charging money, hidden camera stories and Facebook donation for sharing pictures and other stuff like this. Use your mind and Google (if you have doubts, check on Hoax-Slayer) before doing such idiotic stuff.

If Facebook has to donate money it will simply donate it. It won’t ask and keep an account of that gross looking picture. Grow Up.

5. Add any fake profile in the friend list:

Yes, there is a very beautiful girl in a sexy pose on the display pic and that is the foremost sign that it could be fake. Oh! She has more than 1000 friends. Most certainly fake. But you don’t care about it because you are a one despo looking for single girls all over the Facebook and/or internet. So you add or accept the request and go on commenting on her pics and liking whatever craps that profile (most probably used by an ugly-looking male) posts. Find out more about how to find fake Facebook profile.

6. Play Farmville/Mafia Wars and such other craps:

Fine! You like to play these games but why bother others? Why send them request to save your lost sheep in Farmville? Most of the people don’t give a damn if you were attacked by some goons in Mafia Wars. If you are such a game addict, create a separate Facebook profile just for playing these games and stop bothering other people in your friend-list before they start blocking you.

7. Update each and every activity on Facebook status:

So, you get up and wish Good Morning to everyone. And then you tell them what are you eating in breakfast, what are you watching, what are your day’s plan. Keep updating it hourly basis. More, also tell them how many times you pooped. Describe that in detail too! For God sake, get a life. Updating the status about interesting things, news, events or funny quotes is one thing but it is not your diary where you record each and everything.

8. Share your love, break-ups and fights:

Aww… You are a love bird. You lover her/him so much that you keep on posting love quotes throughout the day.

Oh! you had a fight. Both of you are not on talking term and now updating your Facebook status hitting out at each other directly/indirectly.

Oops.. you broke up. Now the whole world has to suffer from sad heart-broken status update.

Grow up attention seeker.

9. Pay tribute to every celebrity (without thinking of course):

Though you might have never been able to buy an original Apple product but it was your social responsibility to pay homage to Steve Jobs. You updated your status, changed your profile pic to apple or of Jobs. You shared photos praising Job’s vision and achievement.

Now you see other pics complaining that there are millions of children dying of hunger. You share the pic with hungry child on one side and Steve Jobs on the other. How great of you.

Now comes Dennis Ritchie. You might have never used Unix all your life, never programmed in C and before this day you never knew that there exists such a person but paying a tribute is a must for you. Stop being a &%$#@.

10. The rest falls in this category

There are many more crazy stuffs. List is long and increasing. This point is left empty to take care of rest such things. I encourage you to share the 10th point.

    • http://www.computerandyou.net/ Abhishek Prakash

      No.. You definitely are not alone.. we a all are surrounded by such people who just don’t know how to use facebook…

  • Kip Light

    You say a person is an idiot for adding a fake profile as a friend and then propose that game players set up a fake account to play games. I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but it’s against Facebook policy to set up more than one account and you’re supposed to use your real name. It’s too easy for friends who don’t play to block any app that they are tired of seeing or getting requests from. Other than that one, I’ll go along with the rest, especially number 10 :)

      Hi Kip,
      I have said to create another profile, no a fake one. That doesn’t go against Facebook policy.. ๐Ÿ˜›
      True, that one can block games request but most people either dont know or just dont do it.
      I also think that Facebook should provide a way that users can only send games request to a specific “games list” instead of everyone.

      Thnaks for liking other points.. cheers :)

    • Juggernog

      LMFAO Kip, it dont matter if its against facebook policy or not , people do it all the time, ALLLLLLLL the time and whats stopping them? absolutly nothing maybe crawl out of your shelter bubble and join the real world where not everything sugar cookies and strawberry milk?
