This evening BILs girlfriend tagged me in a post saying this;

Bringing back the challenge!
Post 5 pics where you think you are most beautiful then tag 10 other girls you think are beautiful and then if you are tagged, you have to do this challenge! The "We are all beautiful" challenge is my name for it!

I'm a flipping 28 year old with 4 kids under 10, Im hardly sat around taking selfies.

Also me and DH can not stand BILs girlfriend so why on earth has she tagged me? hmm

Am I the only one that thinks these things are ridiculous?!

lighthearted of course

YANBU - just ignore!

WorraLiberty Sat 20-Aug-16 22:23:23

Because she's running out of people to tag? grin

I reply to these things with a good natured "Fuck off pal"

That's if anyone's silly enough to tag me. Most of my friends know how I feel about spam and shit.

Wigglewogglewoo Sat 20-Aug-16 22:24:36

I agree! My 2 DDs, 14 and 16, are often tagging me in those type of things and occasionally my 18 year old DSs girlfriend will tag me. I'm just a bit hmm when I see them and then just ignore.

I did so one of them that was posting X amount of pictures of things that mean the most to me. Easy, family, husband, pets! grin

Allthingscat Sat 20-Aug-16 22:26:11

I do just ignore, have no intentions of posting 5 pictures of myself on the say so of a 20 year old. I doubt I'll even find 1 that I like grin

Because she's running out of people to tag?

Most likely, she even tagged MIL who doesn't even have a single picture of herself on her Facebook.

I hate these stupid things. Especially the 'great mum' ones. Ummmmm, I've not seen you since high school, you don't know that I'm a great mum! I could be the shittiest parent since...well a really shitty parent.

Blu Sat 20-Aug-16 22:35:26

Haha, instant way to cause yet more FB Fall outs 'Aibu? My friend tagged 10 other people as 'beautiful' but not me...I am so gutted, and crying, or is she a bitch?'

Vacuous, ridiculous, navel gazing bollocks.

Heidibb Sat 20-Aug-16 22:46:49

Get tagged all the time. Don't understand them and just ignore them haha.

sooperdooper Sat 20-Aug-16 22:48:15

Ugh I ignore shite like this on FB all the time!!

TwatbadgingCuntfuckery Sat 20-Aug-16 22:50:16

ha! I have been tagged in so many of the 'great mum' ones and people shared cuddly family snaps. I decided to take the piss and shared DCs chaotic mess. the laundry pile, the pile of dishes, the toothpaste around the sink, DC lay on the floor having a tantrum.

I just bluntly put. Fuck off being a great mum. I'm superwoman dealing with this every day.

I don't hide my shit in glitter

I may have spent the last 5 weeks with DC 24/7 without an adult to talk to

They're just the modern version of the chain letter. Pointless.

Twat gringringringrin

Can you be my friend on Facebook please? grin

user1470516192 Sat 20-Aug-16 23:00:57

I got tagged in one of these the other day, haha. 'Strongest women I know' or some shit. I was pretty chuffed tbf.

OhGodWhatTheHellNow Sat 20-Aug-16 23:22:51

I got tagged in some such bollix, felt less chuffed when I saw I was one of 58...

Shizzlestix Sat 20-Aug-16 23:24:56

Ugh, YANBU! Ignore, no response at all. I saw a 'I'm a great horse owner' bollocks the other day on FB, what a pile of shite! I don't need someone to tag me to tell me I'm doing it right!

Oysterbabe Sat 20-Aug-16 23:26:30

There's no danger of anyone tagging me in this, but if they do I'm deleting them.

ScarlettSahara Sat 20-Aug-16 23:29:37

I don't like the posts that ask you to copy and paste something onto your timeline stipulating "no shares" with the added "I know who will".

I find it a bit PA and have to ignore. I don't understand . Am I missing something? confused. Sorry to hijack thread OP and agree they ran out of people to tag!

idontlikealdi Sat 20-Aug-16 23:32:54

And this is why Facebook is running out of steam. If you're old like me and remember when email first happened it was so great and there was loads of funny stuff but it deteriorated into chain crap and awful jokes now it's just business and actual conversations. FB is the same and linked in not far behind.

""I do just ignore, have no intentions of posting 5 pictures of myself on the say so of a 20 year old.""

How old does the Adult have to be, for you to do something on their say so?

I wouldn't be bothered doing this sort of thing, neither would my 18 or 20 year old, but I've got friends around 50 who do.

She's trying to show you that she thinks of you as being in her 'circle'.

Do you discount every other Adult, whose younger than you?

Allthingscat Sun 21-Aug-16 00:01:05

Wow. Way to turn this into something it's not.

She does not consider me as being in her circle at all. grin

Not every adult younger than me, no, just the immature childish ones.

This isn't meant to be serious, so chill.

Heidibb Sun 21-Aug-16 00:03:51

She's trying to show you that she thinks of you as being in her 'circle'.

OP did state her and her DH can not stand her which I'm dying to know why so that's hardly going to be the case.

It's a light hearted thread about silly Facebook posts, don't turn it into something anymore than that. smile

IAmNotAMindReader Sun 21-Aug-16 00:05:35

See, nobody bothers to tag me in any of those bullshit, fake sisterhood posts cos I have no pics of myself up and my profile picture is of the arse end of a cow. No one bothers because they won't get a serious response. Post some random pictures of llamas and a panda bear and you'll probably not be bothered again.

Allthingscat Sun 21-Aug-16 00:09:03

Haha good plan grin I have plenty pictures of my cats that I've been dying to upload! Those are my most beautiful pictures IMO.
