That the FB avatar things make me feel stabby?

Just that. We are not 14, we are grown-ups, do we really need smiley fake faced avatars peeking in sideways exclaiming 'Hi' to announce our presence. Make me fucking cringe, shudder. (I am very grumpy today).

It reminds me of the "this is Bob..be like Bob" ones a while back.

Completely agree with you. They are tiresome.

AudTheDeepMinded Tue 19-May-20 19:57:54

I keep having to consciously unclench my jaw after seeing them they make me so irrational cross.

It got really tedious really quickly.

Newbie1999 Tue 19-May-20 19:58:21

And they are nothing like the creator. Just what they wish they looked like.

Bluewavescrashing Tue 19-May-20 19:58:45

They all look the same to me anyway.

Sadie789 Tue 19-May-20 19:59:03

Yes me too. I don’t even know where it’s coming from, doesn’t seem to be an option on my Facebook so far. It’s like the Bitmoji thing from years ago. Tedious.

But so is everything at the moment!

(rainbows, clapping, nominating 10 people no explanations, 10 shitty boring pretentious albums, etc etc please fuck off!)

Complain on FB.

TwoZeroTwoZero Tue 19-May-20 20:00:27

Saw this earlier. This is how I feel too.

ruthieness Tue 19-May-20 20:00:28

You are not wrong!!!!

Still1nLove Tue 19-May-20 20:00:29

Some if the ones I’ve seen have made me realise how deluded some people are about their looks!

Hassled Tue 19-May-20 20:00:49

Agreed. Sensible friends in their forties and fifties are represented by - well, I don't know what - cartoon girls?
And while I know FB has a world of data about us, I don't feel like going out of my way to share it with yet another site, data gathering for whatever dodgy reason under the guise of giving me an iffy picture of what I'd look like 30 years ago in a 2D world.

NeutralJanet Tue 19-May-20 20:01:09

Meh, it's just the latest fad, it will go away in time, just like those daft dog face filters that were all the rage but you don't see now.

AudTheDeepMinded Tue 19-May-20 20:02:48

@Sadie789 exactly my frame of mind this evening, everyone and everything can just fuck right off (except my cat).

Everything about fb is doing my head in at the moment apart from the groups that I'm in.
I got tagged in one of those 10 days of motherhood things as well as the 10 fave albums. I just untagged myself because I'm a miserable bastard.

Wewearpinkonwednesdays Tue 19-May-20 20:03:33

I don't know what they are, but I'm sure I would feel the same because I hate most social media fads.

Ultrasoft Tue 19-May-20 20:05:05

I havent looked at how they're done and I wouldn't dream of doing one but it's freaky how easy it is to recognise the person it's supposed to be without looking at the name.

AudTheDeepMinded Tue 19-May-20 20:05:39

@WarmSausageTea it started tedious and got progressively worse. Things must be really bad if people are finding this a good way of entertaining themselves.

@Ultrasoft you must have plasticy looking friends, none of mine are recognisable!

Oh god those 10 best albums are doing my head in. One friend is only listing "Best of ..." albums, which seems to be missing the point of what an album is, another friend is on Day 14 - will it ever stop? Others are seeing it as an exercise to tell us how deep they are by picking the most obscure bloody albums in the world, and which are totally at odds with what I know about them.

AudTheDeepMinded Tue 19-May-20 20:13:07

@Hassled yes the Album and the Motherhood challenges are exceptionally tiresome and vomit-worthy. I've completely ignored all nominations and scroll on though others posts, yawn.

Some do resemble the person, some put a weirdly smiley and glamorous veneer on the perpetually fugly.

DominaShantotto Tue 19-May-20 20:16:11

Oh yeah the album covers - they're all posting exactly the same ones as well - whatever it was that was fashionable to like when you were like 15. So we've got REM, Radiohead...

I don't tend to get tagged in this shit - but if I do I'm putting a complete anthology of cheese up.

Ultrasoft Tue 19-May-20 20:16:28

Maybe I have more honest friends grin
