A lot of us have facebook accounts. Do you have anyone on Facebook as a friend that constantly posts about drama? I have one friend that posts a lot about drama and is constantly complaining. It wouldn't get on my nerves if it wasn't so much! Sometimes I even block what she says so that I won't see it because I already have enough drama in my life that I don't need other people creating drama.

I try not to let that get to me. I usually don't have anything like that happen on facebook, but I have had it happen in other places. The key is to let them be themselves, and don't get directly involved unless you're the target of the drama. You then have a right to say what's on your mind. But, I say if it doesn't directly involve you ignore it. If it's so bad you're blocking her... maybe you should just un-friend her. That's what I'd do... or report the person.

Oh don't get me started lol. I see it everyday on facebook, but it is what it is. We all have stuff going on, and I do feel that sometimes when we don't have time to really connect with our friends it is the best way to let them know what is going on, though it can be annoying at times.

I have thought about hitting that un-friend button but the problem is that I have been friends with her since 7th grade. I have decided to just not talk to her anymore on the chat. I will keep her on my facebook as a friend but I am not chatting with her anymore one on one. In case she gets on my nerves again then I will hide what she says again. Hopefully it won't get to that point again. Knowing her thought, it probably will. It has even gotten to the point that sometimes I feel like she is playing a competition game with me with our lives. I also feel like she copies me occasionally. I'm sick of her having this attitude that she thinks she is better than me, and sick and tired of her putting me down. I understand that sometimes this is our way to communicate...through facebook status updates. Although some things are better unsaid than posting for all her friends and family to see. I think there are just a lot of people that like and create drama. I am not one and I do not like drama. I just hope I can at least put up with your status updates because I don't really want to un-friend her.

I have two friends that are like that and they are forever putting status things up that i would never want my friends to know or other people come to that.I think that it is really sad that there are people that think it is a good thing to put status dramas up.I have also blocked a person as well in the past, as it got just to much.

I blocked 2 people in august, and I have never done that, because of the drama that they were causing, was just to much for me to handle, and there is no point I should have to.

I think that's what Facebook is for, for several people xD For complaining and whining xD. And some of them be grateful of Facebook because they can "express things that they can't say" But actually, it is their fully right to do so:) And it is our right to block them when they are going too far and annoy us

I understand what you are saying. I just don't look at Facebook for complaining and whining. You are right, they have the right to do so. I am just happy for that hide/block button so that I can choose to hide what those people say whenever I need to.

Its funny someone posted this on his wall today... and I agree with it completely. Welcome to facebook, the place where ppl add you as a friend & ignore you in real life. Where status are seen by all but no one bothers to comment. where relationships are perfect, affairs are started & liars believe they are telling the truth & stalkers are born. Enemies visit your profile the most, yet you friends & family block you & even though you write what you are really thinking, someone always takes it the wrong way & people think your status is about them. There is a lot of drama on facebook. I now use it personally for marketing my business and playing there games, other than that I stay away, to much for me to handle.
