I find some people so strange on face book

There are people that put a status up and then when a person makes a comment like whats happened now, they reply I will inbox you, so my question would be why put it as a status if you could have inboxed a few friends.Also if you did not want certain people on your friends list to know, why put it as a status to begin with.I wish some people would think before they wrote things on face book, as messages get passed to others and that is when there is always some come back.

Yes, I totally agree. Some people are just strange and the ones in Facebook are no exception. I think the reason why they post comments is to attract people's attention. The more you post personal thoughts in Facebook the less privacy you have. You will be shocked to find out that when you ran into a not-so-close friend, he is well updated about every aspect of your life.

I think that you are right, I mean some people must be really sad to put certain things as a status or a comment on there, as they want peoples attention.I also think that some people will tell other people things that are not true on there, just to feel popular, as they know people will comment and still keep commenting, until they get all the gossip on a person.Some people do not realise that other people will go and tell another person when they are being spoken about on there and then the trouble really gets started.

Those are attention seeking individuals who wants to let the world knows that they exist. It hard to really understand what happens on minds of such people.

I agree.I feel that they do not have anything better to do with their time, other than trying to get other peoples attention.I think these people are the ones that also thrive on other peoples lives and are the kinds of people to not comment on what they put as a status, that way perhaps in the end they will realise no one is interested in all the rubbish that they have to say.

Ignorance is the best teacher. Ignore whatever they say and soon you will find nothing to worry about.

I think they are just seeking attention when they posted that question.Maybe they wanted to create a stir or wants to be " mysterious" and posts status up that would sure create mystery. People are strange.:)

I agree that these kinds of people are strange and they would be better off trying to find better things to do with their time.I do think that there are people that want all the attention as well as that they will try to get people to comment by putting these things up as a status.I also feel sorry for the people that are seeing the same old status on these peoples accounts.

You are right some people are very strange take our name in their photos (tag) I hate those people. Some send the message like they are our old friend and know us very well. But I not trust on anybody becaues I know this is very danger trust on any unknown person.

to know first who would notice and care about to know the juicy details. Coz if you just choose a few people to PM, that isn't attention-seeking at all! That is what FB is about, it's to satisfy our attention-seeking tendencies.

I think with the same people putting the same old kinds of status up, it gets rather boring all the time.I feel that there are some people that thrive on thinking people really would be interested in what they put up, lol.I feel sorry for the people that have to keep seeing the same old things on there all the time.They do say each to their own.

The thing is many people don't think when they post things on facebook. I think on some level they like it when people they do not "want" to see the status comment on it because they like the attention and it gives them an opportunity to be dramatic.

I think you are right what you are saying, these people must lead really sad and lonely lives if that is why they put these stupid status up on face book.I do think that some people can be rather pathetic, as well as childish, however I know that if I am thinking it, so are other people,lol.

yes there are very strange people on Facebook, I laugh at the people who wish people greetings of various types and those people atr not even on their friends list and some are not even on the internet, strange I think.

I think that there are people that tend to add people for the sake of having more friends than their other friends,lol, sad but true.I tend to only go on there once in a while, but when I do there are the same old people on there with the same status, or people that are im bored status all the time, it gets gets on my nerves after a few minuites of seeing it all.Also seems that there are alot of childish people moaning about their other friends.

I have understood what you want to understand, just from the title of your thread. In fact, on Facebook, you meet people sometimes strange. I also suspect that many of the accounts are fake. A friend of mine for example is believed to speak with a woman (she had also posted the photo), but once in the chat, it was clearly understood to have serious suspicions about whether he was a man!

I have only people that I know, but do not see , as well as people that I see.I find it strange that if people have friends on their account, why are they worried about what reply they put, to the people that have replied to the comments on their status they have put.If you only want certain people to know things why not just send them a message on a inbox, rather than public.Mind you I think some people do it as they think that will get other people thinking, where as in fact they look really silly and some times really childish.

I think now for most people, FaceBook posts have become a force of habit. I hardly go on FaceBook anymore. I sometimes go there to promote MyLot and other sites. I use it now primarily as a tool.

hehe maybe you are right. i think you are correct there that when you do not want others to know, well.. why post it in the first place? but then sometimes we just felt the need to go ahead and still share bits and pieces and make other people wonder what we were up to?

Some facebook users may be younger who do this and they may be just seeking attention, i try to ask sometimes what happened and if i get no response, i just dont feed into their games.

You are right and that's why I don't like Facebook. I've received friends requests from people that I don't know. The last one works in the same company as me but we've never been friends. I added him and a few days ago when we met at the door of the building he didn't say hello! There are people who send invitations to join a cause to everyone in their friend's list. I really don't like all this but today it's compulsory to be there.

it is a strategy to know about those people who care about you..if you private message some may have time to reply some may not. so its safe to put it on the status and let those who care about you discuss your situation and that having a private conversation is not bad if you ask me..

I think they just choosing the people that they will tell the meaning behind their post. I have a lot of friends in facebook and i don't really know some of them in personal,most of them i just know them their looks so when they send me personal message,i don't give a reply. I choose the person that i will give feedback.

They probably put the comment in their status like a lure for a fish they are trying to reel in. When they get a catch then they have someone to talk to and they PM them from there. They just want to get someone interested.

There are strange people on Facebook! More like crazy! Thursady some friends of mine at work were talking about things people post on Facebook. Like we all have friends or relatives who only to seem to talk about the boyfriend in their life,like my niece does! Then there are the friends who are constantly complaining about everything and how much they hate their lives! I like keeping them around just to see how they fair in the real world! Another friend is my my younger brother's sister-in-law. She is constantly complaining and posting photos of neglected and abused animals! I am all for animal rights but she just cares about cats and dogs and this is to much! I was shown how to block posts to people who don't want them to see but for the life of me I can't forget how to do it! Then there are the people who are seeing rumors on Facebook all over the internet saying it is going to end in March! Similiar rumors have been flying around before and known are real! I wish people would stop thinking everything they hear about Facebook is real! Anyway I think I said enough I'll stop none!
