Okay, one of the things that bugs me about Facebook is seeing who people are friends with.

I have a lot of "friends". I use the term loosely because I don't actually know everyone in the physical sense of seeing their face or hearing them speak. I know them through Bloglandia. Point is, they're not crazy, and if they at some point TURN crazy, I can un-friend/ban them.

(Do not be afraid of the UnFriend Feature. It is one of Facebook's truly redeeming qualities)

I DO NOT think you should be "friends" with people who are not actually your friends. I mean, sure, okay, be friends with random strangers....But being friends with people THAT I KNOW YOU HATE? Well, THAT just bugs the crap out of me.

For instance. Dear brother man, why is your stalker face ex girlfriend, who I so lovingly deemed "Scarface", ON YOUR FRIEND LIST. Also, why is she leaving you notes? And why does she leave them where I can read them? Does she not know there's a private message feature? Not that I think she should send you a private message. I don't think she should send you any message, at all, EVER... because while I may not know much, I do know this. She's a big ball of crazy and SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE.

Also, for instance, wedding planners gone awry should not be one's friend. Especially when said wedding planner did not, in fact, follow through with one's wedding plans. She might think you liked her work or something,when we clearly did not. (And by "we" I mean, myself, your mother, and two of your other sisters who got stuck "fixing" things... p.s. you weren't very happy with her either.)

Thirdly, anyone you made out with should probably not be your friend. Unless of course both parties agreed before hand that said "making out" was just for funsies and there were absolutely no feelings involved. This may be referred to as "NCMO", pronounced, "Nick-Moe", short for Non-Committal-Make-Out.

Fourthly, your husband's ex girlfriend. Sure, in the beginning it's kinda funny. But after awhile, it gets a bit uncomfortable because she thinks she knows all about your husband, but she knows all about the lusty 16 year old novice version, not the upgraded 30 year old professional version.

Fifthly, clients. I think this is pretty self explanatory. Unless of course, you have a business Facebook page, in which case, it should be clients and only clients because it's STRICTLY BUSINESS. (For the record, businesses don't tell me when they have a headache.)

Sixthly, your in-laws families. Don't even get me started.

Lastly, your mom. Now, if MY mom was on Facebook, I'd probably be her friend. Because we get along great. Plus, she's pretty much my best friend and knows everything about me anyways. That being said, she's not actually ON Facebook and if she ever were to be on it, I reserve the right to change my mind.

What do you hate most about Facebook?
