When is TMI too much TMI?

I'm connected with someone on Facebook who posts way too much information on her page. She has posted about her love life, her sex life and things she eats for her daily meals. She loves posting gossip about other users and also her family. Especially about her family. Her followers tell her many times that they don't care what she eats, and about gossip. They also tell her over and over again that they don't want to know how many times she has sex a day or her favorite toys and positions. That is just too much TMI if you ask me. I'm still connected with her, but rarely interact with her on Facebook unless it's via a game we play together. City Girl Life. I usually just pass her posts by because of the stuff she talks about.

I rarely see her posts. She mostly posts at night and I'm usually online during the day.

Look on the bright side, sharing TMI gave you something to write about here.

Yeah that is too much TMI. I have someone on my friends list that post every hour what their doing and always post pictures of their food they make. I think that is a bit much. I don't even post every day and if I do i'm sharing news articles etc.

I don't mind looking at photo's of something some one made, especially if they share the recipe. This chick posts photos of everything she eats and she mostly eats junk food and fast food.

Sounds like she has no self respect or she has some serious mental issues.

I'd unfoolow her. You can still be her friend and just. It blocks her posts

I rarely see her posts so as we are normally on at different times of the day.

I am just the opposite on Facebook. I might write something on Facebook every other day or so.

I normally use it to keep up with family and to play games with my nieces.

I can't understand why people need to tell others all about such things. I'm always glad I'm not on FB when I read about how some people use/abuse it.

Block her, I surely would do. There are also users here who share every day what they eat, we are not obliged to read.

Even I would not post such delicate information here! I only have my good reads account hooked up to Facebook Will not be on it more than twice or so a year. I leave it up t my sister to update me on our family as she goes on all the time at least a few times a week. If i am really concerned about my cousin, i call my aunt and uncle and get the info from them. I tried it once and was told to get off the caffeine by some rude man

My Facebook is mostly filled with game stuff and other random stuff for the family. My family started a group there so we all get together in the group and talk.

@LisaSteinmetz Do you mean only your family and you can participate in your group on facebook? Can that be done? Can somebody who is not in your family come along and post to your group?

I usually only see her posts if I'm on late at night. I'm on during the day and she's usually on at night.

She and I only play a game together. While she is on at night, I'm usually on during the day so I rarely see her posts.

I don't mind seeing what people eat. It is a good way to get recipes. Also I love seeing people post their seasonal foods, like my daughter does 31 nights of Halloween and she posts their movie for the night and the Halloween themed food. That is fun. However, as far as people's intimate lives, that is TMI. It is cheap and shallow. Someone is desperate for attention. Also, to post gossip or other people's personal business is way over the line. I have deleted and blocked those types of people. The best way to send a message is not give them the attention they are trying to get.

She posts some good recipes and dishes of food. She also posts some horrible trash talk and thinks it's ok because it's her Facebook page.

I suppose it's an addiction sort of, coz everybody is actually too busy to read all that stuff

She's not a friend, just an acquaintance as we play a game or two together.

Facebook is like her best friend, I suppose. Nobody cares about her favorite toys and positions at all, really? I'm not implying I do care. Good topics to discuss when you're at home with friends, but Facebook is another thing. I wonder if she knows?

Some people don't have much of a life so they end up posting things like that. I barely post anything on FB. I wouldn't stay friends with someone on there if I had to see all of that mess.

That is way to much information. I wouldn't pay any attention to her either if that was all she talked about. It is likely I wouldn't remain friends with her.

People tell her that it's TMI, but she really doesn't care. She seems to have a set of friends who egg her on and keep her going.

I kept thinking your name was familiar. I believe I have seen your name on facebook. Why don't you block her on facebook? I would ignore someone like that too.
