Seriously Facebook? Seriously?

The title of this post may be a little misleading, when I say Facebook in this case I am not talking about the actual company, I'm talking about people on Facebook.  Don't get me wrong, I still have plenty of issues with the company but right now i just want to talk about a few things that seriously bug me.

Prayers

You know, I understand how sometimes we want to say things to God and it just feels like posting it on Facebook is the right thing to do,  I'm sure that at some point or another I've done it myself.  But next time you feel like going "Dear God, please help me deal with this issue" remember that God doesn't read your Facebook page. . . well, I shouldn't say that, I'm sure he probably gets the message but there is absolutely no need to post it on facebook because he doesn't actually go on Facebook to see what people want.

Honestly when I see people posting their prayers on Facebook I just see it as "omg look at me, I'm such a good person, I care so much, see!".  So please people, stop posting prayers, if it's something for God just tell God not everyone.

Grammar

I understand that back in the days of 140 Character limits (and I guess Twitter) we needed to shorten up a lot of things, but there is no need to do this on Facebook!  Some of you just plain talk like idiots.  No, being from the "Ghetto" does not mean you can just go through life without learning to make a proper sentence.  It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just say something like "I would like to drink some water" instead of "I be wanting some water yo".

Dead People

We all lose people we love, it's part of life.  Everyone will at some point die. Taking pictures at a funeral in my opinion is something you should have a specific person who understands the rules deal with it.  I certainly don't think it's weird, I've even been hired to do funerals.

However, when posting pictures of a funeral on Facebook, you really should avoid posting pictures of the deceased laying in the casket.  That to me is just super weird.  Posting pictures of the flowers and the closed casket and stuff like that is ok but not that many people want to see the dead person laying there.

Now I do understand that sometimes some people are unable to get to the funeral and we just want to help them, but that's what email is for.

Likes

What is it with people begging for Likes?  I understand that people want people to like their stuff so that it becomes more popular.  But lately people are just begging for Likes and some of it is just going too far.

The ones I'm noticing that really annoy me are the ones that show you a picture of a messed up baby and then they write down something about how for each Like the baby will receive one prayer.  This to me is just a horrible way to try and get Likes.  The even sadder thing is how many people actually do click on Like.  A lot of these are either seriously old pictures or Photoshop.  But even if they were real you just simply don't use such things to beg for Likes on Facebook!!

I'm sure there is quite a bit more I could write about, things like kids and pets getting accounts, but I'll leave it at this.... for now!
