"A cousin who gave the entire world updates on the intimate relations she and her husband had, in an over the top type detail. She was friends with her entire family on Facebook, from our grandmother to her children. She got super angry with me and lashed out when I suggested in a comment that she keep it to herself. I'm embarrassed to be related to her.
Thank God she lives hundreds of miles from me and I never see her. She's crazy and everyone has learned to ignore it. I unfollowed and eventually had to block her. I eventually deleted Facebook, not really because of that but it was a contributing factor."
"The CTO of my company went through a bitter divorce. His wife was friends with a lot of people at work so everyone was aware of everything she posted about him on Facebook.
She stopped referring to him by name and instead called him 'Ol' Three Inches Two Minutes.'"
"There was a girl I went to high school with who I followed on Facebook. She was a couple of years older than me and I wasn't friends with her but she was in one of my classes and she definitely had a reputation as being just genuinely weird. Anyway, she ended up getting pregnant with twins. I think she was like 21 or 22 and her boyfriend/fiancé/baby daddy was 45. She was a chronic over-sharer on Facebook anyway, but when she got pregnant it got really bad. One time she posted texts with her baby daddy where he was saying he wanted a paternity test and he didn't believe the kids were his. She posted about how she didn't have any money and if anyone knew how she could make money from home and not working. I don't know how she was gonna raise twins.
A couple months after the twins were born (one girl and one boy), she posted about how the boy twin was in the hospital because he randomly stopped breathing and now he might have brain damage. Obviously, this is horrible and I kept following her posts to see updates. She would update it pretty frequently but the way she did is not what a parent of a dying child would do. She would say, 'Oh the doctors say he had a respiratory infection and we'll probably have to take him off life support!' Then two minutes later would be tagging her friends in memes and stupid Facebook challenges and fight videos. The baby ended up passing away and even then she would post only pictures of the daughter and not sound remorseful at all. She would also post about how the daughter got taken by CPS because there was 'an investigation' but she would blow off any of her followers' questions by saying, 'Oh, it's just protocol' or something like that.
I can't believe how much she overshared on Facebook and I just can't fathom why she wants to share the intimate details of her life
In a horrible turn of events, it turned out her and her boyfriend put a blanket on top of the baby when he wouldn't stop crying and then went outside to smoke and when they came back, he was barely breathing. They got charged with manslaughter, I believe, but she is out of prison and now works in my local grocery store.
Her bio on Facebook still says 'Single mom of (both kids' names)' and her cover photo is both of them. She posted a happy birthday to both of them as well with no mention of that the boy passed away. She's still posting those meme videos on the daily. No recent update on the girl but the last thing about it was that she's in a care facility and the mom gets weekly visits."
"A Facebook friend of mine posted pictures of her wedding and then the next day posted that her husband had walked in on her and her neighbor.
Her husband had kicked her and her 5-year-old daughter out. She was asking if anyone had a place they could stay."
"I ride horses and I'm Facebook friends with this one woman I know through riding who seems to have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with her horse. Several years ago, she moved across the state to a much lower COL area and was able to buy some land and keep her horse at her house rather than boarding him somewhere. Shortly after she and the horse moved in, this woman started writing these long posts about her horse than I can only describe as a bit too emotionally and physically attracted? Some sample phrases:
'He is more aroused here and has been pacing the fence some.'
'I love it when he finds me in the pasture and stands close to nuzzle and lick me.'
'One stroke of his slick summer coat and the scent of his skin and breath and I know I did the right thing by bringing him home.'
'When I go in the pasture with him, he is all over me nuzzling my arms and pushing his head into my hands...gently as I taught him. What am I to do with all this sugar?'
I think these posts were an attempt at creative writing, except that she's not a very good writer, so the language ended up sounding like something out of a romance novel. I'm almost positive that she was totally oblivious to how some of her wording sounded, although I'm still not sure if it was merely poor writing or if some of her subconscious feelings inadvertently spilled out. She does really love that horse...
I don't go on Facebook much anymore. I wanted to add that she did adopt a rescue horse fairly quickly, so her first horse was only alone for maybe two weeks, which definitely isn't ideal but was the best she could do under the circumstances. I do have to give this woman credit for being a good horsewoman. She does take really good care of her animals and is a very, um, hands-on horse owner.
This woman is in her 50s. If y'all think typical 'horse girls' are crazy, then you haven't spent enough time around middle-aged horse ladies. They're an entirely different breed of crazy."
"My half-sister always overshares. Every trashy detail of every trashy moment of her trashy life ends up on Facebook. Or it did before she blocked me for calling her on her lies. The final straw for me and my brother was when she posted, 'Well, my mom wouldn't send me money, so I'm homeless and freezing to death (it was September in North Carolina), I slept with some dude for money and now I'm pregnant.' My step-mother refused to send her money, she was homeless for stealing from her former roommates. She had also faked several pregnancies for money and sympathy. I can't say I'm sorry in the least that she blocked me before I could block her.
My stepmom grew a spine really quickly where my half sister is concerned. She offered to let her move back home provided she follow some rules like getting a job, clean up after yourself, no strangers in the house. That was just too much for my half-sister. She wouldn't go to a shelter for the same reason, she didn't want to live by anyone's rules."
"Overall it really wasn't that bad, but a set of twins I went to high school with got pregnant back to back. And they posted pics and updates relentlessly. Multiple times a day. So about six months into the second twin's pregnancy, I commented on one of her pics, 'Jesus Ashley, you've been pregnant for like 15 months, either have the baby or don't!' I was promptly blocked by them both. Their older sister, who I'm actually friends with, thought it was hilarious.
By 'back to back,' I mean they got pregnant one after another, as in the second announced her pregnancy about the same time the first gave birth. That's why it felt so long."
"Two active duty soldiers who are married to each other, with completely open Facebook pages, started airing their drama about cheating on each other. Each admitting that they cheated on each other, how they are going get their way in the divorce, etc. Their CO was on their Facebook page, so was the garrison commander. So both of them got UCMJ action for adultery.
It got even better. They were ordered to cease talking about the proceedings on social media.
What did they both do? They went to social media, continued to brag about cheating on each other and put their commander, garrison commander, and respective JAG lawyers on BLAST.
They're both no longer in the Army and they finally got divorced. It was truly epic, and they kept complaining about their punishment and everything. They basically both started digging a hole and didn't stop until they got to rock bottom. They then complained about how much trouble they were in."
"A Facebook friend of mine posted that she was worried because her 15-year-old son's right hand had begun turning a strange brown/orange color. There were pictures. She'd made a doctors appointment. Later on, she explained it was because he was using his sister's tanning lotion. Only she didn't seem to realize the reason only his right hand was tan and not the rest of his body!
So...she let all of Facebook know her son jacked off using tanning lotion."
"I was in the airport on my way home from another continent when I was scrolling through Facebook and read my aunt's post (not a message, but a Facebook status) about how my grandpa who I was going home to stay with for a couple months had died that morning. I called my mom, who had apparently asked all family members to wait 24 hours before posting anything on social media so that I could have been told in person. My whole family was livid at this aunt for a while.
Three years later, my uncle (a brother to my mom and this aunt) died unexpectedly in the middle of the night. His adult daughter happened to be traveling to their house that day from her out-of-town home, so her mom asked all family to refrain from posting anything on social media until the daughter arrived so that she could tell her in person (and also prevent her from driving while distraught). The aforementioned aunt decided to ignore this request again, and my poor cousin read about her dad's death in a Facebook post when she stopped for breakfast."
"My cousin made a post about her boyfriend cheating on her. His mother denied it. He didn't deny it. 15 minutes later my cousin, her sisters, her mother, her mother's boyfriend and about six of her mates were having a full-blown argument with him, his family and friends in a comment chain that I swear went into quadruple digits and lasted about eight hours.
It was an entertaining night."
"I once took a pic of my shower saying 'about to take a cold shower in this hot weather,' and posted it on my story. Took the shower and didn't think of it anymore. About one hour later my friend texted me 'reflection.' I took a look, in the reflection of the shower you could clearly see me sitting on the toilet, naked. That stuff got 100 views by the time it was deleted.
This was three years ago when I thought it was in-fact cool to share this kind of stuff."
"My mom wrote a very long, very detailed blog post about my sister's miscarriage before most of the extended family even knew she was pregnant. That definitely strained their relationship. When my sister got pregnant again about a year later, my mom was the last to know. We now have a family rule that my mom can't blog about anyone else without permission.
My sister definitely wanted to strangle our mom. She let my mom know with a lot of colorful languages that sharing her personal life online was not okay."
"My uncle found out that my cousin (his daughter) and her husband were filming adult films and posting it online so he posted a long, detailed status about the whole thing on Facebook asking for prayer. The entire extended family found out and no one sees her anymore.
He found out because a friend of his saw one of her videos and told him. We have a very conservative family and they reacted like they found out she was an offender or something. I don't know if anyone stopped talking to her exactly. We have a big family, all I know is she lives far away and doesn't come to family gatherings anymore to avoid the crazy."
"My one friend from high school finally grew out of this phase, but every time her toddler would eat lunch, she would post a pic of him in his highchair with the phrase, 'Billy loves mommy's peanut butter toast,' 'Billy loves his spaghetti,' 'Billy loves mommy's pancakes,' and so on and so forth. I can understand if he was way younger and occasionally show him trying the food, or if he was autistic and this was a feeding therapy milestone...but nope, a whole two and a half years of what Billy ate for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. Same high chair, every freaking day.
I almost became invested as I would log into Facebook like, 'Gee, what did Billy eat today?'"
"I have a friend from basic training that I keep on Facebook, purely for the drama factor. Everything about her life is just stereotypical white trash. And part of me feels bad for her because she does have crazy stuff happen to her, but it also seems like part of it is self-induced. I'd say every 2-3 months, she and her baby-daddy are evicted from wherever they're living. So they're asking for help moving and finding somewhere with a good landlord who will work with them. I mean, if it happens once, probably a bad landlord. But it happened over and over.
I called him the baby-daddy because that's the most consistent thing he is. Sometimes they were in love, they'd been engaged, pretty sure the wedding had a date. But they continued to break up and we got scathing Facebook statuses from her about how poorly he treated her. Never abusive, just the kind of stuff you write when you're mad at someone and want to make them sound as bad as possible. Never more than three days later, they'd get back together.
Their kid was pretty cute, the Facebook doctor was always called in when he had any ailment. I understand wanting a few opinions before you run to the doctor and spend a ton of money. But it was everything: '[Baby] has such a runny nose today. Tons of coughing. Here's what he's sneezing up. Think I should be concerned? No fevers!' Kay, didn't need to see that, thanks.
And finally, to complete the whole thing, she's always posting about not having money. Which, we all know, sucks. But every time a big new game or console came out, both she and the baby daddy were TAKING OFF WORK to wait in line. For their own consoles/copies, etc. Like, I don't think you should be disallowed from having hobbies because you're poor. But was that really the best way to handle it? You couldn't just stop by after your shift? And maybe, since they generally schedule shifts opposite each other, to save on childcare, just one of the brand new consoles would be enough, ya know?
Also, baby daddy is a DJ and white as can be, but routinely posts pics and videos of him and the kid 'doing gangsta stuff,' and it's apparent he's doing, what I can only assume, is his best 'Malibu's Most Wanted' impression because I refuse to believe that's how he actually speaks in the world."
