11 things you are doing on Facebook that are secretly pissing off your friends

It's pretty commonplace to rip on Facebook users because obviously if you are not doing it the way I -- I mean everyone else does it, you're obviously doing it wrong.  I can't fathom why so many people whine about How Things Should Be on Facebook. It's a place where people post photos of their grandchildren or their pets. They can share a link to a snoring cat or a revolution half a world away. They brag about their boyfriends or chronicle the course of a loved one's terminal cancer. People can post any mundane, fabulous, irrelevant, snarky, pointless, heartbreaking or remarkable thing they want to. It is what it is. Don't overthink Facebook.

That said, there is a sort of de facto best practices that everyone more or less has silently agreed upon.  What you didn't get that memo?  You were probably too busy out having a real life so let me give you the cliff notes:

If you like what you read, please follow me on Twitter and like Mysteries of Life on Facebook and be sure to roll over the Like button, then click “get notifications” on the drop-down menu, that way Mark Zuckerberg’s new filtering system won’t keep you from knowing when I post something.
