    Do any of you have friends who post such pictures of their voluntary efforts, whether it's dogs in need or something, on their Facebook feed, and you're like, OK, that was really gross. I didn't really need to see that. Have an old friend of my sister who runs an animal shelter, and though I commend her efforts, it's not fun, and often vomit-inducing, to see some of the stuff she posts. I finally unsubscribed from her posts.

    Never been on facebook but I have clicked RJers onto ignore for posting exceedingly disgusting pics in forums. If I wanted to become engrossed in the grotesque I'd have become a surgeon or a janitor.

    Sad puppies sounds like a refreshing break from all the instagramed photos people like to take of their dinner.

    It reminds me of auto-directing emails to the junk folder from people who spam you with jokes and political petitions. Only with Facebook I'm more likely to miss substantive stuff from them and others when they frequently spam their political views, "like" and gaming requests, jokes, pleas for animal adoptions or links to YouTube vids since they're exponentially increasing the amount of scrolling I'd need to do. So I'll instantly hide spammers from my newsfeed and flat out tell them so, just like I do with email. The difference is that with email, I ask them to put my name in the subject line so I know it's a personal message and not spam. With Facebook I ask them to message me personally if there's anything important they'd want me to know about so they don't get upset if I don't respond to one of their postings. Either way, I have absolutely no problem telling friends that I don't have time for stuff that'd make me miss witty comments, serious personal announcements or interesting pictures and guess what? They're still friends. Now if only people wouldn't requote, RJ spammers you'd like to hide would stay hidden!

    Please seriously stop liking these pictures with sick babies or people with cancer n reposting them and saying "like" if you wish cancer didn't exist, or "like" if you wish this baby was healthy...etc. of course no one likes cancer, or any kind of disease, especially when a child or someone close to us is suffering from it. It's obnoxious. The sharing and reposting of it. STOP IT! Ahhhhhh! If you really want to help, go volunteer at a local hospital, or shelter. Pushing a button doesn't make a difference. But YOU can.
