FB is having to defend itself more and more against the naysayers....

People put a lot of things on Facebook that don't need to be on there. family issues, pics that aren't for all eyes, like young innocent eyes, they say rude and harsh things without regard to others feelings, I don't like FB, I have people i know on there, but I don't follow up with their posts or conversations.

Facebook, like many social media platforms, can be great in terms of improving and maintaining contact with family and friends. But goodness, it can also be horrible in the way of reducing the need for physical interactions and, in the case presented by the OP, constant play-by-play events.

I honestly don't hate Facebook. While I do use it to follow some people (mostly people I know in real life), I am fortunate to see they behave themselves or just don't post that much.  I will admit, however, there was one friend that was getting obnoxious and picking fights with people. In that case, I changed my settings so I would not see that friend's comments but still follow them. If it gets to the point of threats or spam, I can always unfriend them.

Nevertheless, I use Facebook mostly as a news feed - particularly video games, comics, TV shows (including anime), and movies. When it comes to posting, it doesn't happen too often. However, I do like clicking on the Like button with posts I like and selecting emoticons (more often that not, someone else typed a post that shared my feelings on a subject so it saves me from typing as much.) I feel level headed enough to not feel ashamed of what I post or like. It's not like I'm embarrassed to be a fan of Plants vs. Zombies or Dragonball Z.

Sometimes I think that almost everyone I am friends with on Facebook is a comedian. Almost all my friends post funny things everyday.

Do you ever find when you go on facebook , you see a post like someone would put in a news feed , '' what happening on james street , they number of comments  , sometime crack me up laughing so hard . do you get post like that , it just fine funny these people that post thing . they have more time , than i do .  :o

I think it is more funny when people have several accounts and try to post so that people do not realize it is the same person. 

Like others have pointed out - you do not

About as foolish as when people make 30 accounts and then talk to themselves in public forums. LOL

Guys, I think that the post is talking about people on FB who hear sirens in their town and immediately get online to ask what is happening.

i.e. Karen makes a post on FB "just heard a bunch of police going through town - anyone know what's going on?"

Could be wrong, I suppose. But if I am right, I don't really find them annoying. They're a little nosy, sure, but I think we all can be sometimes. Lol.

I do not do Facebook.  But I also do not think it is being nosy to want to know what is going on if something is happening in your area.  Not long ago there were multiple police cars in the area, police walking around screaming at a suspect, guns were drawn.  People in the area have a right to KNOW what is going on and if they could be in danger.

No one around my area knows what's going on anymore because the police changed their radio frequency to ones that no one can scan so we're all in the dark. My scanner is useless and that bums me out. I used to flip it on when I heard the fire sirens but I'm always too late to hear the address and I don't want to have it on 24/7. 

They can't change it to something no one can scan.  You just have to get the new frequency and those are all posted online.  I do agree some people take things to an extreme with wanting to monitor the police and it can get the police hurt or cause problems for them.  If they do not want anyone to know what they are doing they talk on their cell phones.

I think facebook is nothing but drama, and is sad because it's supposed to be for family's and fun

No it was orig for college kids.  There is not any one thing Facebook is "suppose to be".  YOU may want to use it for keeping in touch with family or for fun.  But people use it to get their voice out there.  It IS a lot of drama.  I deleted it a few years back.  I know things at church they put on Facebook and when you don't know what is going on there is one woman who always snarls well it was on Facebook.  smh.

I remember a family member a long time ago was crying on facebook about not having a job and she had no money and didn't know how she could buy groceries.  Then 2 days later she posted a pic of a steak dinner and the name of the steak house she was eating at.  And all I an think is you don't know how you will buy milk and bread this week but you can drop $20 on a steak dinner???

See that is what gets me.  The same people who are on Facebook trashing somebody else or "shaming" them as people like to say are the first to cry about their kid getting bullied.  Who cares?  You are a bully.  SO don't get upset when it happens back to you.

As far as pictures not for young eyes. Young eyes do not need to be on Facebook.  I have seen kids as young as 8 with Facebook accounts.

I also remember a few years ago a girl put a big rant on FB that was vague but trashing family.  Somebody asks her what is wrong and she is like "oh it's personal" well Buifhiagaioio WHY did you put it on Facebook!

I check Facebook most days, but rarely post anything personal.  Some folks post every day it seems.  I can't keep up.

I completely agree, too much drama. I rarely get on FB anymore.

I'm assuming the OP is saying how ridiculous Facebook has become. That, maybe, the nonsensical opening post is indicative of how you typically tend to find nonsensical posts on Facebook.

This is the very reason why I do not put any drama on my Facebook, nor do I comment on the drama of others on Facebook. I intend to stick with the original intent of the website, which is to keep in touch with close family and friends.
