    Has anyone switched to Google+? I like the circles of friends and the way it is organized. But, Facebook is so ubiquitous that it probably won't be going away anytime soon.

    Re: Facebook pet peeves

    Facebook is a catch-22. I enjoy reading/watching the articles/videos posted by people I know, but there is also a lot of noise that I could do without.

    These days, I much prefer twitter. It's a lot more suited toward information, which is better for me.

    I prefer google+ and would switch completely if more of my friends did the same. Unfortunately only a few of them are there, and of those very few actually post anything.

    Twitter is where I'm at. I love politics so I get ALL of my information from Twitter. I have friends on there that occasionally clog up the feed with useless info (I do it at times), but twitter is something I'm surprised hasn't caught on as much as much as Facebook.

    (PS I deleted my Facebook account when my mother AND grandma opened an account. They weren't the sole reason, but it was the final straw.)

    I completely agree. Twitter is MUCH better these days. I think it will continue to challenge Facebook. I think they've stole some of facebook's thunder already.

    That was the only reason I joined FB about 3 years ago. There's a special section for my graduating class of 73, and I was able to catch up with a lot of schoolmates I haven't seen in ages. Other then that, I'm no a FB person at all.

    My biggest pet peeves? Gee, where do I start?....

    The constant friend invites. If I accept an invite with someone I actually know, like a relative, co-worker, etc., I'm all of a sudden flooded with invites from their friends, family, everyone in their little world, people I don't even know. Does FB do this automatically? Make it stop for cryin' out loud!

    The game invites. I don't want to play friggin' Farmville!

    How many times has something similar to this been on your news feed today?

    When people see that it's someone's birthday, since Facebook tells them it's their birthday, and then post a "Happy Birthday" message on the birthday person's Facebook wall.

    On my birthday, my page gets cluttered with Birthday messages from people I never see and don't talk to all year. i know they didn't remember my birthday, and are just trying to get bonus points by making it seem like they did. My real friends call, text or email me, and by best friends actually see me.

    Just don't post about it on your FB page because FB posts can be used as evidence in court.

    This.

    I hate they have the feature where your Tweets can be automatically posted as Facebook statuses too. And I have a lot of Facebook friends who don't have Twitter accounts that really need them to post all the crap they bomb my timeline with.

    Oh, and also the people that post a tweet and a facebook status that are identical. I understand doing that for something big events but for everyday crap just share on Twitter and save from reading it twice.

    One I really find annoying is the "over commenters." I have some friends who literally think they need to post a comment on every status/picture I post. There are 2-3 people who I know will ALWAYS comment. And the best part is they aren't even that great of friends so I barely know them. If they post this much on my updates I can't imagine actually being their friend seeing how many comments I would get. I'll give everyone a chance but if someone starts commenting too much I block all my updates from them.

    Another annoying one is the people posting daily (or more) pictures of their baby. I get it, you had a baby and love it. But I don't see why there needs to be daily pictures. And this is even amplified by the people who don't have very cute babies and still post tons of pictures.


    The people that post 5 Youtube videos a day also annoy me. They get blocked.

    The people that send me any request for whatever app also get blocked.

    There are points in Facebook?

    I hate the points system and want my old Facebook back! Copy and paste this into your status if you agree!
