AIBU to just ask them why they needed to do that instead of just saying what's wrong?

She's already had 4 "What's up, hun?" replies.

I've never seen that on FB before. I've only read about it on MN.

"Aw, hun, did you smudge your nail polish" <concerned face and head tilt>

Is she a really good friend of yours? If so then give her a ring if you are concerned.

If not then just ignore it and let one of her real friends contact her.

If her Facebook updates annoy you the. You can adjust your settings so you don't see them, or unfriend her.

grin

Just put 'I know, how awful. grin('

Then sit back and watch as she tries to work out how the hell you know.

BrianTheMole Fri 13-Sep-13 23:39:03

What you going to do then op? You have to choose an option here.

DuelingFanjo Fri 13-Sep-13 23:39:27

Or you could sit there all night on Facebook refreshing so you can see how many of her friends have responded and post about it on here to pass the time.

kim147 Fri 13-Sep-13 23:39:29

Not a good friend. In fact, we've not ever actually spoken.

Most of my friends normally are less cryptic. Except one and I don't get updates from her anymore.

Silverfoxballs Fri 13-Sep-13 23:39:47

Every time I read FB post on here I am reminded of why I closed my account a year ago.

HildaOgden Fri 13-Sep-13 23:39:54

Actually,just post 'whats up,your haemorrhoids still giving you jip?' then post a follow up 'oops sorry,meant to pm that'

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Fri 13-Sep-13 23:40:53

That was meant to be : o ( , I didn't even know that worked!

DuelingFanjo Fri 13-Sep-13 23:41:41

She's on your 'friends' list and you've never spoken? And you give a shit about what she is posting?

Go to bed. It's got to be more worthwhile.

If you knew her you would know what the sad face was all about. Which begs the question: Why do you have people you dont know on Facebook?

kim147 Fri 13-Sep-13 23:42:52

We have a few things in common so that's why we're FB friends.

Put a wee poem in reply..

When you put a frowny face
on Facebook looking glum
it really makes me want to kick
you square up in your bum smile

Lilacroses Fri 13-Sep-13 23:43:34

Some of my friends do this and it really annoyed me. Then one day Dd was having a terrible time at school and I was struggling at work and I did something similar! It was sort of "Some weeks just seem to go on forever...hate it when Dd is upset" it was just from a desire to express my fe upness but not necessarily ready to share all the details. People got in touch very concerned and I felt bad I'd worrried them!
