The Top 5 Most Annoying Facebook Trends

Updated on April 1, 2013

1. Personal Statuses/Emotional Jargon

So you sit down on your laptop, iPad or IPhone for your daily Facebook sesh. Instead of finding stalk-worthy images of your crush, funny quotes or pages posting funny cats doing strange things, you find extremely depressing statuses of teenage girls ranting about their life. Whether it's their boyfriends being 'douche-bags' or trust issues with their 'friends', there's no escaping the emotional turmoil of young teenage girls. There always seems to be some massive issue in their life they so desire to share with their 400 other Facebook friends. I say please keep enlightening us with your petty problems, so we know who not to spend our time with in real life.

2. PDAs Online

Another Facebook trend I find annoying is when a couple express their love online continuously. Sure, a few lovey statuses are cute, but when it's every few days posting on each other's wall explaining how 'they'll never be a part' and will 'love each other 4 eva bby <3333' that's when it gets annoying. There's FB messenger for a reason.

3. Seen Feature

Some people may like the seen feature and I do admit, at times it is useful to know when someone else has seen your inbox, but isn't it annoying when you want to read an inbox without the other person knowing you've read it? Sometimes I like to take a few hours after reading before I reply (depending on how busy you are) and that can give the other person the wrong idea, as though you don't care. So I'd much rather not have the feature at all.

To be sneaky though, on my iPad, I have the messages app. So when a new inbox comes through, I can preview much more of the message on that app than directly on Facebook. So get on that!

4. Young Girls Exposing Themselves in Videos

I'm sure almost every avid FB user has seen one of their friends comment or worse, like a video of a young girl flashing their precious jewels. I find these so wrong in so many levels.

They say they're 18, but if you do a little research, they're actually 17. It's actually becoming normalized on FB for these types of videos. The more attention people give them (especially boys), the worse it'll become. They don't realize their reputation will be tainted forever. Any future job opportunities will be reduced ten fold because employers know how to get information. I feel sorry for these people because even if they regret it, there's nothing they can do.

Young kids on FB will also grow up believing these things are normal. In my opinion, the next generation of kids will be even worse off than today's.

5. The Duck Face

Seriously, why am I still seeing these? I hated them from the very beginning but people still do the dreaded duck face. If you don't know what it is, it's when someone pouts their lips for a selfie and it looks disgusting. Firstly, your wrinkling up your lips which isn't attractive at all and secondly, you look like a duck.

Please do the world a favour and stop our eyes from bleeding by not posting this fad. I don't want to be hospitalized again for something that can be prevented. Think of the children! Just please, stop feeding the ego of ducks before they take over the world.

The End

Thanks for reading guys. If you agree/disagre please mention below in the comments. I'd love to hear what you have to say. Sorry for my sarcastic approach, these things just really bug me. :)

      I agree completely! You'd think people wouldn't want their personal lives so public, but oh so wrong.

      Thanks for commenting. :)

      Hello Moony27!

      You are so right. Number one is the reason why I had to block and/or unsubscribe from so many FB friends. I can understand an occasional sad or upsetting status update but every other day? Life can't be that terrible.

      This hub was short, sweet, and right to the point. Thanks for posting!

      Hi Writerjj,

      That's so right! Which is why I'd rather not have it at all. :) Thanks for reading.

      Hi Moony27,

      Interesting hub and totally agree with number 3. Though I have to admit that the feature is handy if I'm the one who send the message - but if its the other way around....not so much :)
