I see the following posts on a daily basis on my news feed. I'm not sure WHY people continue to post them but they do and it's got to stop. I mean, c'mon man! It's 2019! I mean, I know it's probably not going to stop all of the gullible people from posting but if it stops just one, then this post will have served its purpose. So, here we go. If you've got any you'd like to add, just let us know in the Facebook comments.
No! Ellen Degeneres is NOT doing a Facebook giveaway!
People had been posting this non stop! Not only is Ellen Degeneres NOT giving away 50 BILLION dollars but neither is The Rock, Will Smith or ANYONE for that matter! This one is quite annoying because most of the time, it's posted from (what I think) people that should know better.
No! You are NOT able to bypass the Facebook system and see more friends with a simple copy and paste post.
This is one I see all the time lately. A Facebook post claiming that the "poster" has a whole new news feed saying that the Facebook algorithm is only letting you see 12 or so people on your friends list. THIS IS NOT TRUE so please stop posting it.
The phrase: "Play Stupid Games, Win Stupid Prizes"
Though this one isn't nearly as bad as some, it's just so over used. That's what bothers me. Can we just agree to stop using it at least for 2019 and maybe circle back around to it again in 2020 after it's had some time to rest?
"The post about 98% of my friends will not repost this"
No, Janet. We're NOT going to repost it, so don't waste your time.
The "Which (Fill in the TV show or movie character) are you?"
I'll admit, when these posts first started, some of them were funny but now? in 2019? Not so funny. Just like the "Play stupid game" posts/comments, let's put this one on the back burner for a bit and pull it out again next year.
This one drives me up a wall! I see this at LEAST once a day. "Oh, this is NOT what I needed right now." Then someone comments, "Oh no. What's wrong? #hugs #prayers" and the OP says, "I don't want to talk about it on here. I'll PM you."
No! Now you NEED to tell us ALL exactly what is going on so we can decide whether we need to unfriend you or at the very least, unfollow you!
There are certainly plenty more. Honorable mentions would have to go out to:
Is the dress blue or white?
Dead celebrities that are not actually dead or that died a LONG time ago. That's one of my favorite to call the poster out on. When they post about someone dying, as if it were NEW, that actually died 4 years ago and they say, "Oh no! He was one of my favorite actors." Oh really, Dave? Then why didn't you know he died 4 years ago!?!
The MEME poster. The guy or girl that posts nothing but memes. Literally. Nothing. But. Memes. All day, every day.
The hand clap emoji between each word. This👏does👏 make 👏you👏 look👏 smart👏 or👏 cool. 👏Stop it!
My new years resolution (and this is true) is that I will unfriend any offenders on this list. Quite honestly, if you're reading this and you're on my friends list, it's not you, it's me. I'm just tired of seeing the same post, over and over again. Ain't nobody got time for dat!
Well, that's enough for now. I'm sure i'll think of more after I've posted this.
