My SIL likes to post on FB at least 4 times a day with various comments on how she is feeling...oh so tired today not much sleep last night..feeling poorly today just been sick again....had a bad day at work today lots of traffic on the way home....just baked a cake and here is a picture..Just went to tesco and oh the queues blah blah blah. Perhaps I am just getting old and but I just don't udnerstand this?

Dont get me wrong I thing FB is great and a wonderful way to keep in touch with family and friends but why would you feel the need to share every detail and every thought that runs through your head?

I don't get it either TBH.

A distant family member on mine posts her whole relationship status' every couple of hours. 'steve I love you so much' one day then 'You bastard, how dare you not come home til 2 in the morning' Blah blah blah.. Oh and all in text speak.

I had a friend who, several times every day, lists out what housework she is doing/going to do.

As you can imagine it is extremely interesting smile

Yes also get relationship updates from SIL along with photos of every Christmas/Birthday/Valentines gift, flowers and cards. At first I though ths was sweet but 2 years later its all a bit much.

MadreInglese Thu 24-Mar-11 12:57:46

the vague attention-whoring ones do my head in too

"XXX is pissed off that a certain person thinks they can treat you in a particular way and get away with it"

oh do fark off

TotemPole Thu 24-Mar-11 12:58:03

TotemPole Thu 24-Mar-11 12:58:38

I've just scratched my toe, that's better.

RoyalBlingThing Thu 24-Mar-11 12:59:58

Why to people have to be so mean? [passive aggressive] LOL

(note I have ignored Totempole]

I'm off to clip my nasal hair.LOL.

'attention whoring' that it describes it perfectly.

'Just been to visit my uncle is in hospital and he is really not well. I just feel so sad and teary and its made me question my own mortality'.

Oh please give me a break

Twitter is worse. Slebs telling their friends which other slebs they just met in sleb land.
