Dear Facebook Friends,

I really don't need to see the results to your quiz entitled "what position are you?" complete with the results that no, indeed, you are not missionary but something more exotic. I really REALLY don't need to see this if I've been among your youth group leaders. It may make me feel really really weird.

Really? Do you *have* to use the f-bomb in every status update? Could you change it up a bit?

I currently have 131 "requests" in my notifications. If I'm not adding the applications you sent me last week I probably won't add the deluge you send me today.

How about checking out my political and spiritual "preferences" in my info tab BEFORE inviting me to that group, thank-you-very-much.

I don't do drama in real life. Please don't try to pull me in via a virtual community either.

That's all for me...what do you want to tell your facebook friends?

I hear ya! I don't just ignore the request; I block the application! That way, noone else can ask me which Grease character I am or which country song is most like me or how many kids I should have. . . . GoodNESS. And the status updates? I really don't need to know every single time your child cries. Or you cry. I really don't. Thanks, Lora!!!

i love the "ignore all" feature on thate applications. i let mine build up for a few months first.

and i would like to tell my ex-boyfriend that cheated on me and then dumped me no i don't consider you my 'friend' nor do i want to accept any of your 3 'friend' requests. as far as i'm concerned the best part of our relationship was when you left me available to find my true love.

I don't do facebook, but I totally am with you. I do have a Myspace page and had this problem, but I barely go on there now.

Leslie said...

YES! Amen!!! I don't like the f-bombs in status updates either.... NOR do I care when your child pees or "poos" in the potty.... UGH! :)

Oh I hear you alright! I think I have like 200+ "requests". I don't look at them, ever. Also, I'd like to tell people that I have never met to STOP friending me! LOL...
