    So many of those already mentioned irritate me.

    My SIL1 who likes the most inappropriate things and is an attention *****. I could post a status about how sick I was feeling and she'd like it. Same with SIL3's sister. She likes nearly everything I post. She even shared one of my statuses about DS one day. And her text speak and capital letters on every word annoys the crap out of me.

    My old neighbour who I kept for entertainment value. Talk about vaguebooking!! And the attention seeking crap. The bogan fights between her 2 different "families" are hilarious.

    I had a guildie from the MMO I play as a friend. That lasted for a week. He liked and commented everything including friends things. When I asked him to please not comment on those things he blamed the friends for their privacy settings.

    SIL3 who only ever shares inspirational pics and very little else. My aunty who is a sharer of the quick fix health things, injured animals and aick children.

    My cousin who is an expert on parenting ahead of his time. Like when he told me how to deal with a situation with school age DS when he'd just found out his GF was pregnant. Or just recently when he told my SIL1 how to deal with a situation with my teenage niece.

    And just to add to the mix. SIL2 who can't spell the absolute basics...or is that carnt spel lol. She's constantly posting pitchers of the kids. She will post inflammatory share things about racial issues or government things and if you say anything to debunk it you cop the whole "if you don't like it or agree then don't comment" from her and her sister.

    Yeah I have some loonies in my family.

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone

    I often think that when people say all of this sort of thing that they *can* be saying things they want people to believe, but is not necessarily always true.

    Great list TB&M. My intention when I started this thread was not to dictate how people use their FB page, in fact I think your wall is a bit like your public diary and you are free to use it as you see fit...within reason. I was more pointing out that my MIL just doesn't understand how FB works and it can lead to some strange things showing up in my newsfeed. I don't think being a frequent selfier makes you unworthy of fb.
