13 Annoying People You Must Unfriend On Facebook

When your Facebook feed is flooded with a zillion creepy items every day, it is time you take a good, hard look at your overflowing friendlist and begin to trim it down. Wondering where to start? Let me help:

1. The timeline hogger

Have that *friend* who floods your timeline with lame posts that you don’t care a fig about? Like ‘there’s always that one friend who knows your real face when the world doesn’t!’ I mean, c’mon, dude- we haven’t even spoken for more than the two minutes we bumped into each other at my cousin’s birthday party! SERIOUSLY!.

2. The tag hag

Don’t even get me started about this kind. I friggin hate those weirdos who tag unrelated people in their pictures, statuses and God knows what. Remember ‘Angel Priya is feeling lonely with Raj Romeo and 49 others?’ FML!

3. Facebook begging

Recognize the ‘Facebook will donate 1 rupee for 1 share’ posts? Who buys this sh*t? Unfriend the people who share these before your mind unfriends you!

4. The creepy text-er

We all have met our fair share of creepy Facebook text-ers. If you think you haven’t, check out the others folder and watch out for some hilariously dumb messages. Unfriend alert.

5. Shady pennames

Goodness, do you have friends whose name reads Da$hing Sonu, H@nd$ome Pr!nce (mind the adjectives and special characters in the names, ha!) and whose profile pictures speak a different story altogether? Dude, I feel sorry you have such ‘specimens’ on your friendlist and a tad bit apprehensive about your judgment!

6. Whiny weirdos

There are some people who love to cry. They will whine when they are with their lover, post sad statuses when they break up, will whine some more when they are recovering and then, whine again. You may even see them whining about having to help themselves to a teeny tiny share at a buffet where they didn’t even have to pay- coz their car broke down and they had to take a cab! Seriously- unfriend these cry babies before the epidemic latches on!

7. The heartbreaker

Do you still have an ex in your friend list, stalk him/her and sometimes even like a post from four odd years back? Save yourself the hurt, dear! Unfriend, right now!

8. The grotesque grammar

If you are a grammar Nazi, you know what I feel every time I see a supposed friend lambasting grammar and stripping holy English of its pious glory. I mean we can’t be friends if you still don’t know what separates ‘their,’ ‘there’ and ‘they’re.’

9. The political propaganda

I am not cut out for politics. I don’t care where Modi is travelling to and couldn’t care less about the Rahul Gandhi faux pas (I did have a hearty laugh, though). If you too are *intolerant* to political drama, you surely can’t keep the political propaganda ministers on your timeline.

10. Copy paste attack

Oh dear, we see too many of these. The page long statuses asking you to carry the chain forward or a fairy will curse you- types!! Thanks but no thanks. Goodbye.

11. Bathroom selfies

Bathroom selfies! Enough said.

12. Let’s play the like game

Ever received a text asking you to like a picture or status? Yes, these morons are out there and in plenty. Just go press unfriend before like and you will like your social media life again!

13. CANDY CRUSH requests

This one is borderline disturbing! The caps lock is, therefore, deliberately deliberate! See- what you do to my mind with such requests! So- if there are any of such weirdos flooding you with Farmville or Candy Crush or Pool requests, just tell them you’d play the kill or be killed game with’em. Mere unfriend-ing seems too small a punishment!

Also befriend me on Facebook if you don’t fit in the above categories.

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
