    It helps.

    It's smoother than e-mailing and more entertaining than instant messaging. I don't usually feel like logging on Skype to talk to whoever happens to be online.

    Plus, I get to detect common interests (or lack thereof) pretty quickly.

    I think that's cute/sweet. I guess if that was the ONLY thing they ever posted it would be different.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    See, this kind of stuff is just informational clutter, not to mention TMI in its own way. There is already an excess of information out there that is actually useful and interesting to me. I don't need to spend time and attention on this. Facebook encourages people to litter their pages with this sort of daily minutiae, rather than concisely expressing meaningful content in a focused way.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Well, I wouldn't say it's the only thing they EVER post but it is 80% of what they post. Hmm, I don't think it's that sweet. I think it's annoying when the majority of someone's posts are about their SO - maybe I'm not a true romantic?

    I do looove blogs like "A Cup of Jo," though, where the author shares those kinds of sentiments amongst myriad other concerns, so it seems more balanced.

    To each his own, though, of course! This is just my personal preference.

    Yeah I agree, too much lovey-dovey talk can be a little sickening (good thing there are filters for your newsfeed in FB). But the occasional expression of gratitude or happiness about a relationship is something I can appreciate.

    yeah to be totally honest it sickens me. i mean the occasional sweetness about someone you love is cool...but the over doing of sappiness turns my stomach. and i feel just awful saying that out loud because some people i truly love do that....i just reaaaaly don't like big sappy emotional displays being announced for everyone to read.

    If someone annoys you, you can Hide their Feed. Or you can block them.

    I just had to hide the feed of a friend of mine who just got his first girlfriend ever and 90% of their mutual posts are:

    "OMG HAPPY 20th WEEK ANNIVERSARY HONEY!!!!!"

    I am always wondering who they are trying to convince with this chicanery... the "audience" or themselves. Either way, I'm not interested.

    The cynical bastard in me loves those types, the ones that go public with just how completely head-over-heels they are in love with this person, and how their life has a sense of value now, especially when they include tons of pictures of them and said person.

    I just sit back, like so:


    Silent. Observing. Waiting. For that inevitable moment when that person will reach in, yank out their heart and soul, and squeezes it in their hands, unapologetically, until all their hope and dreams ooze out of the side like a melting Marshmallow Moon Pie.

    It's even better in retrospect when you at their photos chronologically, and you can literally see the contempt and disgust slowing building in their eyes overtime, reeking like a bad odor in their body language.
