5 Unnecessary Facebook Posts From Parents

Wait 'til you hear what my kitten did today
Some Facebook posts are great. Some Facebook posts are offensive. Some Facebook posts make us feel like shit. But other Facebook posts? They're just completely and totally unnecessary.

I know, I know, it's your profile and you'll post what you want to. But seriously, dude, you can skip the status update that details your day ("Gym, then shower, then dinner with the girls!"), and, well, just get on with it. Think of all the time you'll save! You can maybe squeeze in a game of Solitaire or make yourself a smoothie!

Here are 5 Facebook posts that are totally unnecessary.


The photo of what you're eating. Unless it's an amazing birthday cake you crafted, or something that's accompanied by a recipe, it's just not necessary. (Food stylists exempt.)

The status update that says you're tired. This one goes out to Kim Kardashian's Twitter page, which is rife with "SooOooO sleepy/Night-night/Time for bed!" messages. If you want to elaborate as to why you're tired, go for it! But just a simple "I'm sleepy" update can be skipped, as it's really not very interesting reading.

Vaguebooking. You know the updates I'm talking about. The ones that are shrouded in mystery, yet begging for an inquiry. "I can't believe I'm going to do this." What?! What are you going to do?! Just say it. You know you're going to after a million back and forths with people commenting. It'll save you a lot of time.

The "Ahh, finally a moment to myself" update. Just saying. The solo time you've been dreaming about might be better spent elsewhere.

The "I'm thinking of quitting Facebook" update. Come on, you're not really thinking of quitting. You just want your friends to tell you not to!

What Facebook posts do you find unnecessary? Not offensive. Not rude. Unnecessary.
