I had this friend on facebook, and every single time i say something, he must comment on my status. It is starting to get on my nerves. And the whole point here is, he comments it in a sarcastic way, tryna oppose to whatever i say on facebook. Wth is wrong with ppl like this? Just because he hasn't experience certain stuff in life, then he starts assuming that the whole world doesn't too. NO wonder he is still single until now. I couldn't stand him and just block him on facebook. i finally understand now why facebook ask "is your friend annoying you?" when u are about to someone.

Your Facebook friend sounds lonely and in need of a true friend, not just a "Facebook" friend. Perhaps he is hoping to have conversations with you through your posts. I am guessing he is just a person you added because you knew, and not because you particularly cared for him? I hope he has someone he can turn to. In terms of Facebook, I used to be a member some years ago but left because I found it made life too complicated and the privacy matters were frightening. Back when I was a member, though, I would only accept friend requests from people I liked and who I actually wanted to keep in my life. Normally I could expect their behavior on Facebook just as in life, and therefore I never had "annoyances" such as this. If I ever had a friend like yours, I would probably stir up some conversation and see if this man was depressed and/or needed help. If he did, I'd try to get him that help; otherwise, I guess you have to assume he's trying to be friendly and social and attempt to be flattered rather than annoyed. In real life, I rarely find myself annoyed with people. I never know their backgrounds nor what they are going through in life, so I tend to be very accepting of people unless they say or do something unacceptable. Being cruel, rude, or generally uncaring toward a fellow human being is something that always irks me from the start, but thankfully, such people tend to be the minority. Prolonged negativity and overall pessimism from a person can also annoy me, but it usually takes hours of being with a person like that to get to me, mostly because it's so sad that some people truly have a negative mindset. I try to spread some optimism and why they should hope rather than complain in cases like this, but to be helped, a person needs to want help.

I found it made life too complicated and the privacy matters were frightening I am thinking to leave the site as well because I am not using it as much as others. (^^)I am just using it to keep my friend's contact address. Since I know their email address sometimes I just feel that I don't need facebook account.(^^)

You can block this person so that he won't be able to bother you again. Or maybe, if you can, stop posting on facebook as well. that way you wouldn't have to deal with him. There are people like that in the world. It would have been good idea to eliminate them off facebook because they are useless there.

Well since Facebook is a social networking site you can not really avoid some irritating people coming your way! Maybe you'll just need to customize your privacy setting or simple block that person. If he/she does you disrespect and rudeness!

Hi Jeslin! Ignore him and I am agree that you should block him on facebook.(^^) I can understand that. There are such people who like to say comments in sarcastic way whenever we try to be positive. I would prefer to go with constructive disagreement type of advice than give opposite statements disagree and not helping anyone. I have never blocked anyone on facebook as I am not using it to share my problems. I just keep my friends contacts over there.(^^)

I wish i could block my annoying neighbors like we can do people on facebook. Actually its not so much them as it is their company. Im not sure if their friends are staying there or what. But they come and go all hours of the day and night. The worse part is their CAR. They will start it up, sit there running and gunning the gas for 30-1hr. They leave for 10min-several hrs, come back sit running the engine again anywhere from 30-1hr. All the time gunning the engine. I can even hear them racing away up the road. I bet they waste more gas just in the driveway alone. Before that she kept babsitting her whinny grand daughter. This child must have been around 4yrs but everytime i heard her she was whinny. The couple themselves are not bad its just their friend and family.

That seems like pouring a oil in flaming fire, And that's exactly what facebook might have come up with this new friend. I too have experienced just idiotic people in life, there are some who think that all they say is the best and should be applied according to their needs. The best way for me to handle such people is to just fight back and make them realize that you too are something more then them. Or else if we look at the other side it may be to just shut your mouth and just let go off things thinking why to make understand foolish people. On facebook i think the best way to handle your friend is to make a different private list of chat and enter that friends name and just make that part offline. So when you use facebook you will see all your friends online except that person. So finally concluding on the topic we should have patient and wisdom to handle just persons in life and not hurt any egos.

Some people are annoying but we have to put up with them. The only thing to do here is to be happy that the person is not our son, brother or dad. Some people are just annoying by nature. But some are just doing it as a habit. Tolerence is the only remedy.

I don't have Facebook so I wouldn't know. I do have a friend who has a few annoying Facebook friends, she is friends with people at school but there is this one particular girl who annoys her all the time on Facebook. Each time she makes a comment or is just appearing online, her class mate would just pop out of no where and make a really dumb comment. Even when my friend isn't interested in talking to her, she'll just start talking to her saying really annoying things. Not only online, but there are people who are quite annoying offline. I have a few friends who get quite annoying and bugs me a lot. She always interferes a conversation and asks something completely off topic. She always wants attention and I despise attention seekers. There are some people out there who think the world revolves around them.

the best way is to ignore that person in that way will stop bothering you, maybe that is way he wanted to get attention from you. And the best way to counter attack is ignore and he will be crazy not you.

Wow what a friend .Actually I dont think that person was a friend .I will admit that there are some people who are naturally opposers but i also believe that if he was a friend who would have tried to supress that urge .I think you did the right thing though because people like that just drain all your creativity by making you doubt yourself every step of teh way .Your lif would have been hell if you hadnt

It's not really that i would find someone annoying. i might find their habits and their remarks to be what annoys me more. Sometimes events and situations put us into circumstances where annoying things are done and said by the prople we may care most about.

I guess you thought he was your friend, so you added him. Then you were annoyed with what he did and you weren't sure if he was your friend. Finally you got the inspiration and decided that he wasn't your friend and you blocked him for good. Friendship, especially a virtual one is fragile. Always started with promise. When the end came it was always bitter - sorry, it was just me thinking aloud. Your former friend is funny. He could post unpleasant comments in other people's status without a care how the receiver would feel. Like you said, no wonder he's not married yet. :) Did you ever write in private to him asking why he wrote such comments? Maybe he was just like a stone. He thought he was just being humorous.

Well, people on FaceBook are like that. Try to ignore it the best you can. If you can't, actually talk to him in real life and sort it out.

Is fb asking: is your friend annoying you? I tried to delete a friend yesterday but found it very hard to find out how. haven't been there since months. I don't know if being sarcastic is a good reason to be single, I think their are plenty of people who like that way of responding (esp. if you are the same). If that friend is really trying to pull you down, or tried to make a fool out of you is also not sure. Some people just like to respond and think their way of responding is funny. Did you ever tell that friend how annoying these replies are for you? Anyway the good thing about fb is you can block or delete friends. Would be great if you can do that in real life as well that easily. And yes there are people I find annoying too. This also can include my kids and husband. If it comes that far I try to find out why they are annoying to me. Frequently it has to do with my mood and I get over it. I just need some time for me and time to figure out why they don't respond the way I thought they would do. Mostly it's just mis communication.
