If you're like everyone else in the world, you're a member of Facebook. The social networking site helps connect people across the world, aiding in globular communication far more than we ever perceived possible. To think back to my personal origins of using social networking, it's hard to imagine the progress could happen so fast. I remember reading outbursts of teenage angst through Livejournal entries, watching people trying to become popular via Myspace, and instant chat came through MSN Messenger.
Now all of it seems to be rolled up into one giant ball of pure communication amongst friends. Facebook became king of all social networks, bringing the entire world together. Every person I know has a Facebook account and uses it quite often, even my grandmother! It's a simple way to keep in touch with everyone you know. Facebook has benefited society in so many ways, so it's hard to fault the website for anything. It's perfect on every level, except for one thing: the annoying Facebook "likes" pages.
The Facebook "Likes" pages are designed to where you can click "like" on a particular musing that you...like. It's a simple concept that's somewhat understandable. Say the page title is "Music"...I can simply click "like" in order to display the fact that I like music. It seems like a cool little addition to Facebook that's beneficial in getting to know peoples interests. This is completely fine, yet several people are abusing this neat system. It seems people are using the Facebook "Likes" section to try to add dimension to their personality in order to appear clever, funny, or possibly ignorant. They do this by "liking" little musings that are instantly broadcast to my Facebook status feed. Some of them are laughingly embarrassing for the person who clicks the like button, willfully displaying their stupidity, while others just completely make me cringe.
I've decided to make a definitive list of the top 10 most annoying Facebook likes that I've seen on my personal status feed. They haven't been altered in any way. I hope you enjoy these painstakingly-terrible likes.
1. justin bieber anit gay his awsome -
While this botched defense of tween sensation, Justin Bieber may in fact be true, the spelling errors should be fixed to add professional validity to your statement! Come on!
2. You Say Somethingg and after a whilee you say to youselff i shouldnt havee saidd, i should have said something betterr...
I wonder if the creator of this like page wondered if he should have named it something better after he submitted it.
3. Grandad: When I was your age, all we got was an apple and a blackberry.
Kid: What? You got a laptop and a phone? That's not fair.Grandad: ?????
Yeah, I get the generational pun. But what kind of person received an apple and a blackberry (for what I'm assuming is either Christmas or a birthday), and what kind of child would think that an Apple computer or Blackberry phone existed when his grandfather was a child.
4. Boys are stronger than girls?
Can you bleed for a week and survive?
Can you squeeze 14 inch baby from a 9 centimeter hole?
Can you carry a 7 pound baby in your stomach for 9 months?
Can you take care of a child, cook, clean, and talk on the phone atonce?
Can you carry 10 8 pound shopping bags?
Can you go a week only eating salad?
Can you face heartbreak?
Can you watch the love of your life be with someone else?
Can you burn your forehead with a straightener and not complain
This disturbed me on so many levels. First, the sexist nature of it all. Second, I don't want to hear boasting about menstruation on my Facebook. Lastly, it promotes the eating of salad for a week as if it's a common thing amongst women?
5. hi. remember me? you used to smile when you saw me, hug me for no reason, talk to me without any conditions and love me for who i was. i miss that.
The tone of this really just gets to me. It just screams "pathetic".
6. Girl "12 years old": Mom billy showd me his penis at school today , Mom: (freaking out) , Girl: it reminded me of a peanut , Mom: Really it was small ? , Girl: No it was salty ! Mom:(passed out) :)
It's disturbing to me how someone could find the concept of preteen oral sex funny. What's also even more disturbing, is that the grammar and spelling both lead me to believe that this "like" page was created by a 12-year-old.
7. pushing somebody by accident: age 6 "sorry i am really sorry... age 12: "soz" age 15: " hahahahaha loser
The depressing depiction of a life being corrupted. Apparently at age 6 we have hearts of gold. At age 12 we...well, I don't know what "soz" is...i've never heard the expression before. By age 15 we laugh at those that we accidentally push and then call them a loser. This doesn't ring true for me. I hope it doesn't for you.
8. A real girlfriend does not complain while her boyfriend is on his XBOX; She Sits There and Yells KILL HIM!!
Yeah, girls playing video games, cool deal. You're obviously a fun, interesting, one of a kind person if you like this status.
9. If Justin Bieber went missing, 95% of girls would die. 4% would celebrate. I'm part of the 1% that would be poking my new cell mate with a spoon. Like if you get it
Apparently, 95% of women love Justin Bieber so much that they would die without him.
Apparently 4% of women would celebrate the death of a teenage pop singer.
And disturbingly, It would take 1% of all of the women in the world to kill Justin Bieber. This status is insinuating that hundreds of millions of women are actually out to kill Justin Bieber in cold blood.
10. When he texts you, he's the only person you're texting and you love texting him, and when you get a message you smile. But when he gets a text from you, you just can't help from thinking you're just another girl he texts, and its true.
I completely understand the motif, guys are jerks. But honestly, the story of this Facebook like page is one of the most negative outlooks I've ever seen. It's not just an exploratory evaluation of the female mind, it's supporting the paranoia with a factual "and its true" that really changes the meaning to a depressing ball of a meaningless life.
Thank you for bearing through all of these 15 terribly annoying Facebook "like" pages. If you had a hard time believing that some of these actually exist, you're more than welcome to look them up. If this made you Facebook unbearable for you, I have a great article explaining everything you need to know about Twitter.
