What are some of the most useless facebook updates you have seen?

    I don't spend a lot of time on facebook.

    I wake up, I make breakfast, I check my emails, read the news, and if I have time left - I'll glance at my facebook page and see if I have any messages.

    But why do you feel I need to know what song you were singing in the shower last night.

    Seen worse?

    Share them here!

      lol, Kiwi Max you know I can see your point but I can also see another point. People just want to enjoy themselves and share what's going on even if it may seem pointless to other's. I have a facebook account and my sister sends things that I'm like oookkkk! but you know what it makes her happy and feel good. We all have different characters and personas that some people can relate to and other's can't. It is kinda like our hubs we write how do you feel when nobody reads or comments on your hub?? Everyone deserves to be who they are regardless of how other's may view it. Being honest and open about who you are and comfortable with what you comment or write about deserves some kind of open-mindness and respect wouldn't you say?? Just my opinion. Thanks for sharing. Monica

    Hi Monica,

    I know what you mean, and to be honest I don't mind what people put on their walls (sorry I didn't mean to make the wrong impression).

    If it makes you happy - go buckwild!

      The only really annoying statuses are things like what they ate for breakfast, or how muchthey love thier partner, now i dont have a problem with that, as im in a relationship myself, but when every status is about them, after a while its like ok we get it, shut up

    Big-scale social networking is dieing. Only FB hasn't realized it.
    Nearly 33% of their user base, between ages 23-65, have dropped off severely and continue to decline -despite the mobile idea.

    Vkontake, Baidu, Odnoklassniki and Badoo collectively have more members than FB.
    Oddly enough, Mail.ru had a 4% vested interest Facebook and 3% in Zynga (Facebook gaming supplier like Farmville) cashed out @ IPO, bought up 34% of Vkontakte, launched Odnoklassniki Social Network and scooped up ICQ etc, is exploding across Europe, as Baidu keeps Asia in check, and FB out.

    Funny of it: US users make up less than 1/3 of FB base, indicting that the rapid decline in FB use is due to the explosion of localized social networks outside of America.

    FB cannot find any more new users. Micro-networks and Social Commerce are the next generation. The Wall has reached its height, as Pink Floyd put it, too high for anyone to see. FB would be smart to break the company apart and build on its user base for games or its [redundant] app store idea -even its Open Graph API for developers, instead of Trending Topics for PPC ad clicks.

    status update: FacePlant highly recommended.

      Wow, I never knew that. Where did you read about this?

        Max, here is a link to Mail.ru Corporate Data.. I began tracking them when heard Zynga was getting involved with FB. They have done very well, in recent years and continue to expand. Their newest project free-lance.ru interests me, as a programmer. Many русские друзья here in NY who think its a great thing. From an investment perspective, they seem to have cornered Europe, in the Social Network arena.

    I have about 10 "friends" on Facebook that I went to HS with that post questionable updates all the time.  Their lives are ALWAYS messed up no matter what they do.  Sometimes I wonder if it's all true because I question whether someone's life can be that bad all the time.

    I have another "friend" who is constantly bashing her husband.  He has started replying to some of her posts.  It has become interesting to say the least.

    It's annoying sometimes but I will say that when I think I'm having a bad day, I can go into what I call my "Jerry Springer" list of friends and realize my life is actually pretty freakin' good!

    Occasionally I see what people had for dinner & those kind of things.

    People post some of the craziest stuff on there.  I'm only still there for the traffic to my online portfolio and the amusement.

      Why do people air their dirty laundry like that? Then they're surprised when it all blows up in their face.

    I get annoyed when people constantly fish for compliments. I have a friend and a lot of her statuses are either complaining, hypocritical statements, or she's trying to get someone to boost her self esteem. Completely useless.

    Here is a very non-useless one from twitter.

    Personally, I want to vomit every time one of my 'friends' up dates the world and his wife about their babies latest burp / rash / bowel movement.  My father used to say -  children are like farts, your own are mildly amusing but everyone else's  are just plain offensive.  I agree with him. smile

    Yeah guess can see your point but in reality we all air our dirty laundry to someone and you know what for some damn reason we air out to the same people that we know that are going to use it where it does blow up in our face, tell me why is that?...It doesn't matter who you tell or where you post it...Results, are usually the same. Unfortunately, I haven't really heard anything that doesn't surprise me or even phase me...I guess it depends on how open a person is and the things people say tells me alot about who they are and their character on how they respond to other's regardless of what the issue is... Thank you for sharing that with me, Monica
