    I, for one, welcome our new context explaining overlords.

    Attention/sympathy seeking posts with no information annoy me.

    One of my sisters does that... Once she even got a bunch of "friends" to give her sympathy for something that was entirely HER FAULT.

    Before Facebook they were always the domain of the MSN Messenger "Personal Message" or whatever they called it. It was either ambiguous "My life is awful" statements or, if feeling even more cryptic, emotional/telling song lyrics.

    astral walks i try to take
    i sit and throw i ching
    aesthetic bards
    and tarot cards
    are the cords
    to which i cling
    don't break my strings
    (i wish you would)
    or i will fall
    (i wish i could
    i wish i could
    i wish i could)

    Tell me about it. Those were the days

    LOL I get a lot of FB ads for stuff I find really painful or offensive to look at - lots of stuff on Animal welfare and abused animals. I really don't want that on my feed. It upsets me.

    Lol yeah but these were attention seeking 'Talk to me' statements. As for song lyrics

    I went to the link and saw this:
    "HERE'S THE FIX: Scroll down to the bottom of the newsfeed on the homepage and click on "Edit Options", click on "Show Posts From" and change the setting to "All Of Your Friends and Pages" Note: This is the fix for personal pages but I am unsure of whether or not the business pages are set up the same way. "
    I can't find the Edit Options bit -can anyone else?
