10 of the Most Awkward Moments in Facebook History


For the record, I don’t have a Facebook account.  It’s not that I’m too cool for it, it’s simply that I’m a relatively private person and I happen to keep in touch with all the people I actually want to keep in touch with.  I see no need to let hundreds of people know what I’m doing for happy hour, which band I saw this weekend, or what I thought of Obama’s speech to students across America.  That said, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with Facebook.  I think it’s a brilliant idea and networking vehicle – it simply isn’t for me.

Sometimes, though, Facebook can get people in a lot of trouble.  When you change your “status” and advertise to the world what you’re thinking, you may rub some people the wrong way.  And when you do, it’s often hilarious for the rest of us.  After the jump, take a look at 10 of the most awkward moments in Facebook history.

I hate my job!


You’re not my mom.


Uh, there’s a way to say that privately.


Don’t eat animals.


Mom’s a pretty good sport…or disoriented.




This guy seems to have outsmarted himself.


The wedding is off.


What’s wring with Chris Miller?

    I don’t get the second to last one… what am I missing lol?

  • Madison

    @ illeaturfamily

    Just 2 minutes after Jon added Chris Miller as a friend, he changed his status to “hates Facebook.”

  • illeaturfamily

    Ok yeah I saw that… I was just wishing to know more of the story behind it.

    I like to think that Chris Miller banged his wife, and now they’re forced to be friends. Because Facebook says so, dammit.

  • Madison

    Works for me. Wife banging it is.

    Facebook has become an obsession with people. One of my college room mates was on it probably 7 hours a day total. Every time we’d walk in the room, she would be on it, stalking people. Even would get on to our facebook pages and ADD people, so she could look at peoples’ profiles. Really creepy and kinda like a sociopath. It’s sad when you have to change your password because your roomie adds total strangers on your account.

    Also, I was taking an online final last year and a girl next to me was ON FACEBOOK while taking the final. I lost any hope for our generation in that moment.

    @ Laura

    I can’t even begin to describe how saddened I am to hear that. On Facebook during a final??? I say this a lot, but Idiocracy is a prophetic movie..

  • David

    I think this is hilarious! The first one is absolutely the best, with the vindictive boss, but the split vagaga is the funniest….13 stitches!?! I think I feel sorrier for Jason than for her! From now on, take a “slow ride”!

    I find it strange that in ‘Uh, there’s a way to say that privately.’ Tracy is talking of spending a night with Micheal after many months of abstinence.. yet she is listed as ‘engaged’ LOL what a sly lady.
