Most women — 83% of respondents in this survey — are annoyed at one time or another by the posts from their Facebook connections. For these respondents, the most off-putting post was some kind of whine; a full 63% said complaining from Facebook friends was their number one pet peeve, with political chatter and bragging coming in a distant second and third.
The respondents also said at least one of their Facebook friends tended to:
- Share too many mundane updates too often (65%)
- “Like” too many posts (46%)
- Inappropriately or too frequently use Facebook to promote causes (40%)
- Project false information or images of a perfect life (40%)
These kinds of Facebook archetypes have become part of the cultural lexicon.
