But they can't put every present they get on Facebook can they?
I always expect people to put their main present on Facebook and wouldn't even cross my mind to put mine on.
As long as they thank you for the present then I think Yabu

Is everyone on here obsessed with Facebook? I am thinking I might be to old for MM as all this sounds so trivial. Still amazed people are jealous and angry over pictures of presents on FB. Go and eat some more food and stop caring so much what others are doing. Amazing.

Not obsessed just commenting, didn't realise there were rules about what we could and couldn't talk about.
Yes you are probably too old for MM, whatever that is.

It sounds petty and childish, it is petty and childish. Why is anyone putting pictures of presents on FB anyway? There is another post about people being jealous of pictures on FB of other peoples presents and that they are boasting. Wow.

Are you on Facebook or are you commenting on things you know nothing about?

I've got about a hundred Facebook friends and have never had a single present pic on my Facebook feed? Am I unusual in this?

My niece has put a picture of her DC with the gift I bought them on Fb. She lives a long way away and wanted me to see them with it. As far as I can see she hasn't put any other ones on, but she is not being malicious.

I had a brief look on FB this morning & most of my friends are putting up pics of gifts, and their dinner table. It did cross my mind it looks boastful and greedy "look at me I've got it all". Just naff, imo. If people do this kind of stuff of course there'll be varied opinions. Always surprises me when some loftily say "why do you care?". Yet they care enough to be on the net commenting on your post/comment, & your mindset too

I am not on FB. I am commenting on what I have read on MM today. People being jealous/bitter/angry/cross or whatever about a picture/pictures they have seen of presents or the lack of a picture on FB of the present they bought their friend. confused

The example given of the niece with dc and present is a nice way FB can be used. But why are people getting upset and jealous of pictures of presents? It's what many others have admitted to. Oh well we are all different. Just a shame it's bringing such negative emotions out in people.

I hope someone bought you a grip for Christmas hmm

Yabu, it's nice to see people having fun. They probably just took a load of random photos of them opening presents and posted them. No need to be offended unless they have made snide comments about your gift.

I have noted a lot of Christmas photos presents laid tables, all my friends seem to be in onesies!
Each to their own! I haven't posted any. I am sure no one gives a shit! But if it makes them happy... obviously its a little different if you have lots of family you want to share with.
