      Ok, so it is not too often that I rant but hey I am feeling a need to rant right now.

      Why do people choose to be hypocrites I don't get it, do people seem to think that they are invisible, that others can't see that they are saying one thing and doing another? It really grinds my gears when people do this, they will pick fault with others for doing things yet they do it anyway how can you justify that being right?

      Another thing that has really got to me aswell, why do friends choose to do things just to annoy you whether it be on purpose or without realising. If someone wants you to be online or wants to chat and you are not there surely you would message them in a way you know they will get it, but oh no instead they wait until you are online and then have a go because you wasn't there.

      One more thing, is it just me or has Facebook suddenly turned into Whinge Book, wow! I have now resorted to not even bothering with going on there because everytime I do someone else is having a whine about something whether it be because they haven't slept or because they do not feel well or because someone has hurt them, it angers me because everyone has their problems yet you get someone whom will come forward on Facebook and make out the world is ending because of their problem and half the time it's to get attention.

      I have since disappeared off the face of the earth every where apart from forums for now, I don't know if it's just me but seeing people make out their goody too shoes and others are not even though I have quite clearly seen them act that way and also people who choose to make out life is so bad just really annoys me!

      Arrrggghh!!! Rant over!

      Facebook is the place to be for whinging!! Everybody is repetitive, it can be pretty boring. I tend to ignore comments like that but sometimes they are all over your page. :|

      I agree, I can be scrolling down sometimes just checking and then all of a sudden I get a load of status updates from the same person just going on like the world is going to end. The world isn't going to end and people that probably are having a harder time than you are seeing this and thinking wow, that's all that is wrong and you feel the need to make out it's the end of the world.

      Alot of the time it is attention seeking and some of the things I have seen posted does make me wonder if it's more than sympathy on Facebook they need.

      My cousin pretty much just rants on facebook about how hard her life is. The girl doesn't go to school, works like a maximum of 3 days a week and has money handed to her left and right by my uncle, it's really sad. Yet she'll go on about how hard her life is and how much it sucks. I really feel like slapping her half the time. :-/ This is like a daily thing too, gets to the point where ya really just don't wanna bother with facebook anymore. Only reason I still use it is cuz I have friends I can't keep in touch with otherwise.

      I know how you feel about people who post nothing but doom and gloom on Facebook but at the end of the day you have the power to just unfriend them :)

      Facebook is indeed the place for drama, and for other things, you know, teen drama. So yeah, not surprised FB's gone to the dogs like that.

      what do you mean? depends on my viewpoint? People are naturally keen on slating and scathing others yes?

      I can totally relate to this! Do you know how I have actually hid several persons from my news feed? I don't want to delete them since they will surely find out if I do. So its better to hide their activities for my own peace of mind. :D

      Also used this method myself :) it can work wonders however it doesn't work in preventing them messaging you so you end up with the whining anyway which is very annoying, and they always find out that you have deleted them and then find some other way to contact you to get to you even more so you just end up going around in a big circle.

      how exactly do I hide newsfeeds activities? I mean, in terms of confidentiality, fb doesn't really hold it's own.

      To hide individual people's status updates from your newfeed if you hover over that friends status update you should see an arrow in the right corner that points down, if you click on that it should give you some options and one of them should say unsubscribe from status updates from that person and that should hide their updates from your news feed :)
