Probably not the stupidest I've ever seen and I've not seen it for a few days now and can't remember who posted it so can't copy and paste but statuses like:

Byker Grove, Grange Hill, SMTV, Pokemon, Penny sweets, Hot Summers. This is when Britain was great.

Yes Britain was great because of a selection of kids programmes and sweets.

It annoys me when people copy those chain statuses that they think are clever, because they aren't. Take the one I saw today. It went something like this (sorry can't be bothered to go to FB and paste it): If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get sent to a harsh labour camp. If you cross the Afghanistan border illegally you get shot. 2 Americans were jailed for 8 years for entering Iran illegally. Come to the UK illegally and get benefits, free healthcare and free education for your children.

First comment from thick friend agreed with the status, so I decided to let the person know why the status she thinks is clever is actually stupid, going over each claim made therein.

One's I always hated was people bragging about how trashed they were on the weekend, like it was a badge of honour or something. In retrospect, I just think I outgrew a lot of friends on my facebook which is why I deleted it.

2 main annoyances at the minute:

Pregnancy updates. "aww ma babi boi iz kikin loadz 2day. gonna b a mummy soon!!!!!!!!" Drives me up the wall. Usually accompanied by a scan picture.

"Why should I even bother with life?", along with lots of "you OK?" comments. Surprisingly not from an emo teenage girl, but a fully grown man who really should have more sense.

BIB - They usually follow that by saying "I don't want to talk about" Why put it on Facebook then?! Sympathy hunters.

Regarding people posting statuses about their health, their children, their new job, etc... you do realise that the whole point of Facebook is to keep your friends up to date with what's going on in your life? Those kind of statuses are what Facebook is for. The pointless stuff, yeah, that's needless. But if you have a problem with personal stuff being posted, then I'm afraid it's a problem with Facebook you have, not your friends - because they're using it in exactly the way it was designed for.

My grandchildren come first. My grandchildren are the joys of my life and every time I hear that little voice call NANNY my heart sings. Keep ya fancy cars and expensive outfits. I'm a NAN and proud.

Copy and paste etc etc etc

"I don't have time to go clubbing."- do nans actually do that these days anyway?

One of my old uni friends actually posted about having her new lounge carpet fitted the other day. Worse still she included photos of said carpet in situ. It was a cream carpet. Another friend has just had her first baby so constant status updates about the little sprog with photos to go with. They're both on the verge of being deleted. Can't people be a bit more imaginative with their status updates?

An old school friend posted about her son's constant nose bleed and the blood being everywhere, she then spent the next hour liking every comment that oohed and aahed yet ignored my advice of ring NHS Direct with the accompanying phone number. Attention seeking at it's worst.

I hate the constant lyrics and movie quotes that my brother has in his status, because we have quite a large family and we all have to be each other's Facebook friends so that we know every tiny detail that goes on in each others lives. And if we dare to reject each other's Facebook friend requests, then certain members of the family WILL make it their lives goal to slag you off everyone else in the family -- I've experienced this first hand for having the cheek to not check my Facebook for two days, therefore didn't add my aunt the second she added me.

His constant movie quotes/lyrics are taken out of context by all the "elder" members of the family. Not that long ago he had "I'm smoking" because he'd been watching The Mask. And in the comments he'd be talking to his friends ABOUT watching the Mask. I was told by THREE separate family members within the space of two days about how they're ashamed of my brother and I should be too because it's disgusting that he smokes.

He also had some lyrics about blackening his eyes and slitting someone's throat a few days ago -- that was taken seriously too. It's a song, I introduced him to the band that sing it.

I dislike the ones that pop up with pictures of young children with big lumps on their face. Share this and they get $3 towards an operation, or some such nonsense.

The ones I hate

"so pissed off"
"what up hon?"
"don't want to talk about it"

WTF! Don't write a status then. It's not rocket science.

Oh gawd! This sort of thing is usually posted by the same ignoramuses that post statuses with 'If my Engerland flag offends you, then go back to where you came from' and the like.
Other posts that annoy me are the ones making claims that Facebook is going to start charging. No it's not! Facebook makes plenty of money from advertising revenue to ever need to charge.
Posts claiming 'insert name' is a paedophile who is going round Facebook adding children. There is never any evidence to back up the claims of such posts. The poster just blindly copies n pastes without even finding out if the claims are true before they possibly commit liable in some innocent person's name.
There is a great page on Fb called Hoax Slayer which is brilliant if you ever wish to provide evidence to refute any wild claims seen copied n pasted by sheep.

Oh, somebody else who's not in my friends anymore
"Can't wait till my drinking session with my bestie such an such (tagged). Roll on 6 o'clock"
Answer from tagged friend "It's gonna be great, babe"
Do you really want all your other friends to: 1. notice they haven't been invited; 2. notice you've got nothing else important going on in your life; 3, notice you've got too much free time as you keep on posting completely irrelevant and pointless updates?

And guess what... They get no response.

Come to the UK illegally and get benefits, free healthcare and free education for your children.
It is good to know that the Digital Spy forums aren't the only outlet for propaganda!

Has it occurred to a lot of people that not every single person who comes to the UK illegally gets benefits, free healthcare and free education for their children and that there are some people who come to the UK illegally that actually do get deported and get absolutely nothing??!!

has anyone 'liked' that?
I would have lol.

Posts I hate are attention seeking ones and chain ones. Most of my friends are sensible and don't generally post inane drivel though chainmail posts are still put up

Why waste millions of £££s on research when all you have to do is post on fb?
I had a rant about this stupidness last week, I was really hoping someone would come out in defence of it but I think they were scared off because the post got a few likes and a couple replies congratulating me for saying it.
Shame cos I was in the mood for a "discussion"!
