People can post whatever they like. Their fb page is theirs, not mine, so I figure its completely up to them what they post or don't post. If fb is getting annoying/upsetting then that's when it's time for a break. (And I don't mean that in a nasty way as I do think it's healthy to step away when it's getting to you.)

i brag about my kids on fb, i post funny things they say or do. I put up new photos everyday because they are always learing something new and growing way to quickly. I have family on FB, who dont get to see us as we dont live close to any family. This is how we connect and get up to date with eachother's kids.
Although my profile is set to private/friends only, I couldnt give two hoots about who might be sick of my posts about my kids, there is now an option to 'hide posts', so no one really has the right to be annoyed with me. There are much, much, much more disturbing things posted on FB these days. I actually love seeing my news feed clogged up with pics of my family/friends kids rather than something like...."FML, just finished work..." or "inbox for a like" or an ugly pouting selfie...ergghh.

The only posts that truly upset, offend or annoy me are racist, sexist, violent, pornographic or basically socially unacceptable.
Everything else is fine by me.
Never posted a food pic cause I'm a crap cook but absolutley love seeing them. My mouth drools and I make a mental note to try and get a dinner invite off that person.
Don't do them myself cause I'm unhappy with myself at the moment (used to do them alot before i hated the way i look) but I love selfies. Especially love seeing people so proud of how they look. I hope to be confident enough to be like that again one day soon.
Love travel pics and braggy "look where I am" pics. I've travelled the globe myself pre motherhood and love seeing other people enjoy what the world has to offer. It's an amazing place.
Love seeing my friends get new cars, new jobs, great clothes etc etc.
love baby pics and pregnancy updates.
I obviously don't get out enough...

I don't mind seeing posts about kiddies, because I occasionally post about my DS and I wouldn't want anyone to be annoyed with me posting a pic or two.
It's the depressive posts I dislike.

The only posts that annoy me on Facebook is the ones who post/fight about their marital or relationship issues.
FFS go see a counselor! I don't want to know how much of a w*nk job your other half is and what he did to make you upset...
What on earth do you want? Sympathy? Pfft you married him so that's not my problem.
Another one that really flips my b!tch switch is bible bashers.
Dh family is religious, which ok that's great for you.
But don't use Facebook to "spread the word"
First of all when you are putting up links on controversial issues and a whole bunch of stuff, sometimes it comes across rather full on and instead of making people interested in your religion (like I'm sure you intended) it actually can offend many.
On the other hand I actually like reading some daily verses that get put up by some family, it's interesting for me and sometimes it gives me an idea on their perception of the bible.
But when you try to play preacher for topics like gay marriage, abortion, porn, drugs, premarital sex... Just don't lol.
And really, read those articles you "share" because half the time it's so full of incorrect information it makes my blood boil.

I don't have anyone on my Facebook that I feel blatantly boasts.
It's nice to hear good news, see photos of people's travels, and see my friends children's achievements. Sharing is cool.
To me, sharing becomes bragging when there is a one-up kind of attitude behind the way people word their posts. There are plenty of ways to share good news without sounding conceited or deliberately making others feel inadequate.
It stands out to me when someone is going out of their way to say "yep, I'm awesome! Bet you're jealous", rather than "I'm so happy something awesome is going on in my life". But it's all open to interpretation I suppose.

I think it depends on the personality of the person. My cousin without a doubt is bragging on facebook. She's that type of person, spent her whole life feeling inferior as she was the poor girl in the most exclusive school in the country, did nothing then met a married rich man and now lives the high life. Her facebook is all about showing people she too lives the highlife now. Its a joke to the whole family. ..her own mother the loudest critic. Others meanwhile could have the same stuff without doing it the way she does it. She's not subtle at alll. Hers is most definitely a highlight reel.

Most of the time I don't see it as bragging but just being proud. Be is getting a good mark in an assignment or a pic of their cute baby.
I did however have someone on my list (not any more thank god) that never did updates except for the location tags, always at expensive restaurants, upper class destinations and expensive clothing stores. She is a family member so I know her well, and she is extremely superficial. It just stuck out like a sore thumb she was bragging and trying to look 'upper class' and cool.
