    I am getting a bit annoyed with all of the pictures floating around of people holding a sign to make a statement. Here is an example.

    There are always tons of them in my facebook feed. I think it's way overdone...Do they annoy anyone else?

    That's the other one that drives me crazy, too!

    I recently went out to eat with about 8 friends. After our food was served, I realized I was the only one eating. Everyone else was taking pictures of their food, and uploading them to facebook. So. Weird.

    I'm not annoyed. I love looking at all that kind of stuff. Heck, I'm one that loves to look at anyone's vacation photos. I don't even have to know them. I search for antique photos too. Maybe I'm somewhat different.

    I have this friend who always uploads pictures of the "masterpiece" he just cooked. He'll post "look I can cook" and a lot of his friends will be like "give me some!" It's usually some sort of baked pasta with cheese and meat and possibly an iceberg lettuce salad. I feel like saying "boiling pasta and dumping on Prego and cheese does NOT count as cooking." Sheesh!:confused:

    And I am guilty of posting food pictures on Instagram.

    I post pics of the stuff I make that I think is cool. Like I made cake pops and took pics of them because I was just so dang impressed I could do that :lol:

    The ones that get me are the "1 like=1 prayer" Ugh I hate those! Or the if you don't like this photo, you're a terrorist!

    Me too!! I hate being guilted into liking something.

    I get if you're cooking something challenging, or adding a pic for your cooking blog, but unless it's something never seen before, I don't need a pic.

    Now THOSE are highly annoying. It kills me people post, like, and share those.

    I apparently hate kids with cancer and love the devil.

    I must be right there with ya, sista! Because I just glaze over those. I mean, Jesus isn't going to care either way. He has a lot more on his mind than that.

    :agreed:
    Lol, didn't you know that before Facebook, everyone must have loved the devil, etc.? We didn't have the pictures to "like" in order to save us! My sister announced to our softball team last week that if any of us were those people who post "that stupid $@!&," we would be deleted from her account immediately. I may take a page out of her book!;)

    I like the food pictures! I just love food, especially new and interesting kinds that I might not have tried before. I don't usually upload them myself though. The one thing I don't like is when people use those filters that make it look all funky and gross-colored. It might be fine for other things, but not food!

    I don't know anyone that posts the "if you X then like this post" type stuff anymore. If someone is annoying, I either unfriend if we're not close or just unsubscribe from their posts so I don't see them on my news feed.

    I like the dog picture too. :lol:

    Actually, before Facebook Jesus checked our love via email chains! :lol:

    All of the above annoy the beep out of me.
