Facebook has a tendency to bring out some annoying traits in our friends, family, and contacts in general. Whether you’re new to Facebook, or an expert at this whole “pretend to have an amazing life” thing, chances are you’ve come across a few people who simply leave you questioning your faith in humanity.
A few years ago, I published an article titled “21 Really Annoying Facebook Friends We All Have“. After much thought, reflection, and yes, even some self discovery, I give you a fresh approach at humanity’s love/hate relationship with Facebook: The Quintessential List of Annoying Facebook Friends, updated for 2015. How many of these people do you have on your friends list?
50. The “Everything I Eat Or Drink Is Epic” Friend
Seriously, these friends are convinced that absolutely everything they eat or drink is epic. You can scroll through their entire Facebook timeline day-by-day to confirm this fact.
49. The E-Card Friend
These friends aren’t hard to spot. Every single status update they make involves an e-card style image of some sort. These aren’t just the friends who occasionally post a meme, they’re the ones who create their own customized cards and post them daily.
48. The Condescending Friend
This is the friend who thinks he or she is by far superior to you. Everything they say and do shows this. They are better than you in every way. They don’t care about how their comments will make people feel. They only care about themselves. They often like their own inappropriate statuses too.
47. The Random Observationalist Friend
Every notice how some of your friends seem to have a lot more free time than you? They won’t straight up tell you this, but they’ll find subtle ways of letting the world know. In case you missed something in life, they’ll be sure you get the memo.
46. The Wannabe Photographer Friend
This friend just bought their first smart phone and therefore considers it their moral duty to add purpose to their life by documenting the most mundane details. They also think it’s cool to make every picture they take look like it was taken in the 70’s with a crappy camera. They actually believe they are capturing a monumental worthwhile piece of history that will eventually find its way into the museums of the future for generations to come ogle over.
45. The Stalker Friend
These friends never post on your wall, never really even communicate with you on Facebook, but when you see them in real life, they seem to know absolutely everything you’ve statused for the past year. Awkward, right? You didn’t even realize you still had them on Facebook. Probably a good time to unfriend.
44. The Refriend
Remember that friend you decided to unfriend a while ago? Well, this friend doesn’t take no for an answer and is back for more rejection. Do you accept their friend request out of pity or do you let bygones be bygones?
43. The Groupie Friend
These friends like and comment on all of your statuses almost as fast as you can post them. If you’re not sure if you have any Groupie Friends, just post a status and see who replies instantly. Somehow, they are always there within the first 30 seconds or less.
42. The Wannabe Celebrity Friend
This friend knows all the cool lingo and makes sure every status update of theirs has a hip-hop bent to it. In the more annoying cases of this, they actually hang with celebrities and make sure to play that fact up in all of their statuses.
41. The “Taking A Break From Facebook” Friend
Everybody needs a break from Facebook from time to time. Most of us just disappear without notice, but not these friends. They’ll not only inform the uncaring general public that they’ll be taking a break, but they’ll share this as if they’ve suddenly had some life-changing epiphany.
Yeah, they’ll be back.
