Have I missed something? Who's Bev
Some journalism student from Tasmania that does his own sports show on Facebook, he looks and acts a little weird so he's become a giant meme. He blew up even more recently due to some sexual harassment allegations that he just completely ignored.

Never used FB but from what I've seen of people around me using I have literally never seen anything of substance. There is no reason to use it, it's just addiction at this point. What are people actually looking at scrolling through endlessly...
News updates, discussions on community pages, friends posts or photos and funny/interesting videos mainly.

Its all down to what pages you follow. There is a lot of shit but you can avoid it.

Is there a way to create multiple events on Facebook messenger? We currently have one planned for a couple of weeks from now, but also want to add an event for before this.

Any help.

For anyone who doesn't think that Instagram is the dumbest thing ever created:

https://www.news.com.au/entertainme...n/news-story/000c5dce49da881c0ae310341a493d86

How To Stop Online Bullying 101: post a photo of yourself crying. That'll show those trolls.

Sorry, but if I saw a girlfriend of mine doing this, instant divorce. Is there anything more self-absorbed and attention seeking than this?
Those who tag themselves at the hospital but don't say why. Everyone asks 'whats wrong', 'hope you are ok' and they never answer or say what they are there for. Or have a cryptic post about being sad/upset but don't say whats wrong

Attention seeking!!

Just left a Foreigners Society page in the country I am living in.

It's literally full of British and Americans who just whinge and complain about everything like they just expected to live in another London or New York.

If you call yourself an Influencer then you deserve every bit of hate that comes your way.

Just my opinion.

Can’t stand it. Hate it. Promotes anti social behaviour more so than not, which is ironic. You see people in public or in social settings and 90% of them will be on their phone. They interact with online entities rather than real people. The amount of rubbish people post as well, it simply just promotes self conscious behaviour, probably contributes to self esteem problems, acts as a way for people not to be real, masks underlying problems that exist.

All in all, it’s a disaster for the majority of people.

I saw a rant about someone saying they lost friends once they had a baby.

I wonder how many of their single friends they excluded from social gatherings once they got into a relationship...
The wife of one of my mates does this all the time. Has 2 kids and constantly posts bullshit sob stories about how no one wants to make time for her now that she has kids. And every couple months she posts the same bullshit "I'm going to stop trying to stay friends with people, if they want to be friends with me it's up to them."

Guess what? Acting like it's everyone else's fault and posting passive aggressive sob stories probably doesn't make them want to organise a catch up.

On my newsfeed someone posting about her husband being in hospital for 2 days and waiting on results, wish us luck etc. No mention of what happened and when 20 people ask, nothing - just a reply saying thanks for the well wishes. Attention seeking much?

That reminds me of the classic vaguebook status, the no comment check in at the hospital.

Firstname Lastname is at Sacred Heart Hospital.

Cue a long line of "Are you ok hun xxx?" "What happened?" "Is everything ok? xxx" enquiries.

And then when they have finally satisfied their need for compassion and health enquiries they answer with, "All good, just had a check up/follow up about benign medical condition."

The hospital check-ins are the pinnacle of attention-whoring.

I know that when I've had to go to Hospital for something serious (either myself or relatives) the first thing on my mind it to post a facebook status. Nobody that has the time and or thought process to post the above is doing anything but seeking attention. One day they'll have a real emergency and realise that and be surprised when no one visits them.
