    Anybody else have "friends" that post all kinds of obscure comments on Facebook? I have 2 folks, one male, one female that regularly put strange, meaningless postings on there, presumably so us "friends" will ask "What's wrong", "Are you OK", blah, blah, blah. Disgusting.

    Guy posted, "1" yesterday and then today, "When you put this picture together, you get the picture".

    Gal wrote, "An experience." and the next day, "Oh snap!".

    I refuse to engage participate in their games.

    Anybody know if there's a name for this kinda posting behavior?

    I'm pretty sure it's called A) young and dumb or B) young and weak.

    I think it's a guessing game.

    Sounds like an invitation to un-friend them because they are being ridiculous.

    And at the same time, justification for such reaches all new lows.

    Still haven't asked but it appears as though the (yes young) "guy" has had his heart broken. Sometime late last night he posted candid photos of a waterfall that he and his (former) girl must have spent time near. He wrote, "A waterfall is like your future, you can't control it. But you can watch it crash and fall."

    FB. Scourge of the internet.

    I'm not on FB. When a "friend" has some weird rantings or shenanigans, I PICK UP the phone and call. Or text. The term friend has been so depersonalized in reality, it's a shame that the use of that term means less than zero on the intraweb

    Yes, I have plenty of those FB friends. i also have some that put up wall posts purely for shock value, sometimes with lots of profanity in the humor. But whats sad is that I have a feeling they just regurgitated whatever they read someone else say on Reddit or 4chan

    I don't read reddit or 4chan. I have an active fb newsfeed, but few others post on my page. I only have ~150 friends and a handful of groups where I get updates. My family group, a few racing teams, kayak fishing, and music group pages. I've had to often go to settings and fix irritating people or correct fb glitches. Still don't like the current layout.
