I've had to hide a bunch of gossip pages because FB lets me know when my friend comments/likes something and i got tired of seeing these dumb links to terrible celebrities all the time.

The joke was just about a particular attitude some people automatically take when they see that other people are concerned about concerning things.

Other than that, yeah, I guess how I phrased it was similar to saying "the city known as and called Chicago" instead of just "Chicago."

Chicago dogs are great. But a real Coney is a different thing. A beautiful, sauce covered thing.

it's not the not-funny funnies that piss me off, it's all the glurge and cliched motivational posters, etc.

all this thread is telling me is, no, don't bother going back to FB.

Like i'm pretty sure i can pick non shitty friends (i don't remember anyone posting really dumb shit back when i was on it), but the moment your family starts adding you, you're condemned to a bad feed.

You can always find your interests and like everything that's posted by them and then your feed is inundated with your interests and the occasional post by a person, which you could block from your feed if you don't want to see what they post. People make Facebook out to be this awful self centered flood of me posts. It doesn't have to be.

So you're saying that instead I could make it a flood of advertisements and clickbait?

i also find it helpful not friending every random person i've met or perhaps accidentally brushed a shoulder with in my life like some seem to. kinda cuts down on the unwanted bullshit

Family gets one chance, they post some religious or right wing bullshit, than I block their posts from my newsfeed. That's it. No drama. Takes so very little effort.

my aversion to adding family members stems more from the inevitable atheistic (not preachy, mind you, just an off-handed jesus joke or something) which would no doubt lead to infinite tension at many a christmas party future

i've got a few cousins & whatnot friended on there though they've never really said anything

it ain't easy bein a liberal louisianian!

i thought that you did that for your own feed's sake but when I realized it shows up in others, i guess for ad purposes, i had to stop

so looks like 99% of facebook is annoying this person

so is that the people on it, you, or the site itself? I'd say a mix of the last two.

well tbh most of the things people do are annoying. at least to me.
the thing about facebook though is that is distills that behavior and concentrates it so it gets profoundly unbearable. it's like a magnifying glass into the flaws that i already hate about people. not even trying to veil their relentless vanity and self bloating.
i really should just stop fucking reading that shit

I'd like to see if there's a list of people and pages that I've blocked or hidden from my timeline. There'd be quite a few on there.
