my sister has posted 6 pictures of her PFB (now 5!) in the past 10 hours.........

Unfollow.

I've just unfollowed one if my closest friends because I can't stand the sugariness and PFBing ATM.

When you've had time out, quietly refollow.

I love mine, sorry OP. Sometimes I don't post any of them, but sometimes theres photos of DS when he was tiny and they make me smile especially when I see how much of a giant he is now.
Theres no point in getting pissed off with other peoples fb posts, hide them if its annoying you maybe?

I like them.

You're annoyed that your sister is posting photos of her child/your nephew/niece? On her wall? Really?

Meh, if you want to see what she posts then do, if you don't want to see it then unfollow....
I like seeing the memories stuff, but rarely post it, can't get myself excited enough to care if other people do it differently though.

I am annoyed because for some reason FB won't let me have them. Other than that I like them.

Sorry, but no sympathy here at all for FB complaints.

If you can't adjust the settings to get what you want then just leave it. Many of us manage very well without FB.

I've found my own a bit tricky recently as they have been focused on when I had a long hospital stay and was very unwell 7 years ago. Other people's don't bother me.

I use my memories to delete the bad stuff I can't be arsed to comb through my timeline for - things about my violent ex, the usual. I do like to look back at old pics of the DC, but mostly it's just an embarrassing reminder of the sheer amount of facile shit I used to post grin

Every single day a friend posts memory pics of her son...he's now 5, but all the posts are 2 or 3 years old.

I actually asked her recently would we be seeing photos of him aged 5 when he's 7, and when she's going to catch up to his real age.

Creatureofthenight Thu 25-Aug-16 10:58:41

My friend posts both recent and old photos, pretty much every day!

I find these annoying unless they're for something really significant, like a wedding or graduation etc.

Unfollow! I have about 100 friends on Facebook but I only 'follow' around 30 of them thanks to this sort of stuff grin

Preach!

I have a couple of friends who two years ago gave blow by blow accounts of the minute details of their pregnancy, maternity leave and life with their toddlers. Thanks to timehop etc., we are now reliving those moments, blow by blow, day by day, for the second time.

Yes I have blocked them. Which means I miss the occasional non-what-baby-looked-like-two-years-ago post, which is a shame.

OnlyAFoolsChance Thu 25-Aug-16 12:45:08

I like them. Each to their own tbf.

One today reminded me that it would have been my dads birthday today and it was a pic of him on his last birthday alive a few years ago.

NavyandWhite Thu 25-Aug-16 12:51:04

I unfollowed someone for this reason. That's all she posted! All day every day. Have seen it once thank you.

LottieDoubtie Thu 25-Aug-16 12:56:05

Being pissed off seems a bit of a strong reaction to old pictures of other people's kids tbh.

Katinkka Thu 25-Aug-16 12:57:57

My sister posted baby pics of my nephew yesterday. Was nice to be reminded of what a cutie he was ( and still is!)

Figgygal Thu 25-Aug-16 13:01:55

God people are so bloody miserable what is the problem with her sharing cute old pics why is that bloody offensive to you?

NavyandWhite Thu 25-Aug-16 13:05:43

Cute old pics? To the parents maybe.

Just5minswithDacre Thu 25-Aug-16 13:13:14

It's just wading through the flood, to get to more interesting recent stuff Figgy. Some people post in considerable VOLUME.

And there's not much you can say to 'Our beautiful little girls' x 1000 under old photos. Yes they are/were, but there are only so many ways of phrasing agreement and not much else to say after a while because it isn't new or topical.

It's just one of those modern etiquette posers more than anything.

If they are 10 seperate photos, YANBU. Unfollow her.
If they are from the same event, YABU.

You have complete control over what you see on FB

comebackautumn Thu 25-Aug-16 13:37:09

I love Facebook memories/timehop, seeing photos of DD when she was a baby is such a lovely treat/walk down memory lane.

But I never share them.

COS THEY'RE NOT INTERESTING TO ANYONE ELSE! I'm with you, OP.

RNBrie Thu 25-Aug-16 13:39:44

I'm with you OP, my entire wall is now full of things that happened years ago.

You don't have full control over what you see at all!!! You can choose to unfollow people but then you don't see any of their updates. I would like not to see any shared posts and any shared "memories" but Facebook doesn't offer that granularity.

I like seeing my "memories" but I don't re-share them.
