Facebook, as we all know, is such a massive trend today. Almost everyone is registered with this social networking website.
Once just a noun, Facebook has become a verb these day – with many of us saying “I’m Facebooking”.
After being on Facebook for more than 2 years, I’ve noticed certain things which are amusing when it comes to interacting with people. Here are some things that you do on Facebook, which can also be considered as amusing or weird.
1) What’s on your mind?
Seeing this question once you log into Facebook doesn’t necessarily mean you should share what’s on your mind every single second.
Seriously, that can be annoying!
2) Restaurant City, Farmville and games that takes up your time.
Many Facebook users are addicted to games. You may be proud of your level and amount of coins in the game, but it doesn’t make your real life better.
Start a real restaurant or a real farm once you’ve acknowledged important information about the business. Only if it’s applicable lah.
3) +1 Add as Friend.
You have friends in real life, and you want them to be your friends on Facebook too. When a friend doesn’t Facebook, you demand them to start one so that you can be friends on Facebook.
What’s the significance of needing real friends to be a “Friend” on Facebook? Does it make the friendship even better?
Maybe for some, I guess.
4) +1 Add as I-Don’t-Know-You-But-Wanna-Add-You-For-Fun Friend.
This is pretty normal. But why do you add a stranger, who you don’t even know, onto your Facebook?
At the time I’m writing this, I have 55 friend requests pending. Mostly strangers, and bloggers as well.
Oh yeah, when a guy’s friend request has been approve by a stranger lady, they’ll usually type some funny message.

5) Pretty girls alert.
One thing some guys (not me okay) do on Facebook is to check out hot, pretty, sexy and whatever-you-name-it chicks.
Oh wait, in fact I do love checking out this particular chick.
Yes, Chicken Little! Not!
Anyway, let’s continue. While some guys stayed at “checking out” level, some take it to the next level – by adding those chicks as friends and send some kinky message as well.
These guys are either Mr. Brave Macho or just plain desperate. You judge it.
Oh wait, I get such messages as well. Here’s one of them.
Woots! Scarlett Johansson!
6) Please vote for me! “Like” the contest page and “Like” my photos!
I know you really wanna win this virtual model contest on Facebook and you need as many votes as possible to achieve that.
But wouldn’t that be a little too annoying when you keep sharing your photo link, mentioning friends’ name so that they’ll notice and sending them private messages?
Instead of giving comments, you simply “Like” the things shared on Facebook. You see a status, you like it. You see a video and you like it, you like it. You see a nice photo and you like it, you like it as well.
Same goes to pages on Facebook. I realize many users are liking pages that doesn’t match them.
Liking “I’m too sexy” page doesn’t mean you’ll be sexier. If you do, perhaps you’re in total denial.
Another funny thing about this “Like” feature is that when you ask questions on your status. You get “Like”s instead of answers.
What you do mean by liking my question? So am I handsome or not? I’ll never know. =/
8) Go to Application.
Applications can be fun, but can be pathetic as well. That includes various unnecessary apps and the perfect example is quizzes.
Don’t be deceived when you try a “How Hot are you?” quiz and the result is “Damn Hot!”. Don’t be a fool, just look at the mirror – or on your webcam.
I used to noticed many pathetic quizzes on Facebook back then, but it has toned down. Or was it because I’ve blocked almost every quizzes that appeared on my wall? Maybe.
9) Log in Facebook get money!
There has been rumours lately that you get paid by logging into Facebook. I’m definitely sure that it’s a total fraud.
If it’s true I would have been richer day by day because I log in to my Facebook almost everyday!
10) Tag this Photo.
One of the features that amazes me when I first started Facebook is definitely the photo tagging feature. It’s cool because you can tag and inform your friends about a particular photo.
But somehow it has been misused. Some users start to upload unrelated photos and tag everyone just because you want them to see the photo. Some even use that to sell products.
And some other weird photos like…
What the… MONKEY!? Got 3 “Like”s somemore???
That’s not funny!
